Action from the meeting Oct. 27, 2008

The Grain Valley Board of Aldermen meets the second and fourth Monday of each month. The board met Oct. 27, 2008, and took the following action (unanimous unless otherwise noted):



Approved an ordinance amending the city of Grain Valley’s speed limits. The change makes the speed limit on Golfview Drive, Golfview Court and Golfview Circle 20 mph.
Approved an ordinance authorizing the city to enter an agreement with Data Technologies Inc. and global payments direct Inc. This will allow the city to an purchase additional accounting system module to allow the city to begin accepting credit and debit card payments for water billing accounts in person and over the telephone. The implementation will cost the city, $3,632. Initially, the water billing department prepared to implement online banking, but because of technology limitations, it was determined to seek a different payment option.
Approved an ordinance authorizing the city administrator to enter into a lease termination agreement with Sprint Spectrum Realty Company. The construction of the new Minter Road Tank was funded by the State Revolving Fund and the Tri-County Water Authority under the long-term water supply project. Tri-County and the city are now working on the development of an agreement to determine ownership of the tank once the 20-year financing plan is completed. Sprint is currently in the process of entering into an agreement with Tri-County that will allow Sprint to construct a new wireless telecommunications site at the storage tank.
Approved an ordinance that accepts the final plan of Boley’s Park, located near the Bud Young Estates. The park, which is for Micah Boley, is just more than 12 acres.
