Members of the Russell Community Club were in attendance to discuss the sewer dump station at the campground. According to city ordinance, The Community Club is responsible for all sewer lines from their property line plus 100’.
The Chariton Schools did not hire a bus monitor for Russell. Jay will take on the bus stop project and come up with an acceptable site by the beginning of next school year.
A property line issue was determined to be a civil issue, not a city issue. A resident was instructed to call the law center with any dog issues. There is complaint of a semi-trailer and signage on his property. He was asked to bring all his permits and licenses to city hall so the city can be assured he has the correct documentation to act as a business.
