 • Clarion City Council hear property concerns from residents.

 At a meeting Monday evening, the Clarion city council heard concerns from residents on property owned by Roger Anderson at 603-605 First Street Southeast. Judy Haugland informed the council that there had been some cleanup of the property but that the safety concerns still existed. Andrea Arne and Kathy Fender addressed the council on the same property. The two residents have been cleaning the property and had some interest in possibly rehabilitating the property into a shelter for abused women. They have found some community support for this project but have not gotten too in depth in the process since they do not own the property. Arne stated to the city council that Anderson would be returning to Clarion this week and she hoped to have him sign over the property to her. The council agreed that while the project could be beneficial to Clarion, they did not feel that this was necessarily the best property to use since it needed an extreme amount for work. After much discussion the council chose to proceed with possible citations against Anderson. They also cautioned Arne that if the property were to be signed over to her she would become financially responsible for the property.

In other matters, the Clarion city council heard the report from the Streets and Utilities Committee on the possibility of adding stop signs making some changes to the parking the business district and modifying the golf cart ordinance. The committee is still doing research before bringing the changes to the city council for review. The Clarion Hotel Motel Board met recently and approved over $6000 in grants this quarter. The Mary and Martha group would be painting the Gazebo at Gazebo Park as part of Make A DIfference Day on October 24th. Adam Russell has been hired to fill the Water Operator position with his day on the job last Monday.The Clarion Lions Cub has completed their portion of the construction of the new building at Lions Park. All that remains to be done is a small amount of work which will be completed by a plumber and electrician.
