Aldermen approve crossing guard

The Bowling Green Board of Aldermen agreed to enter a contract allowing the Bowling Green R-I school district to establish a crossing guard on business highway 61 during their regular meeting Monday night.

Mayor Jim Moore called the meeting to order just over 5:30 p.m. All Alderpersons but Kenda Flynn were present as of roll call.

Present members of the board subsequently moved to unanimously approve minutes from the previous meeting as well as the presentation of warrants and treasurer’s report.

The group voted to open the public hearing session, presenting discussion of two rezoning requests entered by Frank and Rebecca Worthington of Independent Rentals, LLC. The first of the requests is for a .55 acre tract at 2000 West Church Street; the second is a .74 acre tract at 20th and Church Streets. Both tracts are currently listed as single-family dwellings. The Worthingtons would like to rezone the pieces of land to establish multiple-family dwellings for their rental properties. Building and code inspector Mel Orf mentioned the couple has noted their plans to build a pavilion and park for the tenants.
