This Kendrick Oil Fast Stop Truck Wash property facing Maple Street was the subject of a public hearing at this week's city council meeting. Kendrick proposes to rezone the property in order to add two bays to the existing ones. The trucks in the far left background are west of Virginia Street and drive across Virginia to get to the truck wash. Kendrick has proposed to close that portion of Virginia to repave with concrete so the trucks do not tear up the street. Residents in the area are opposed to the rezoning for the two new bays. See city council story for more. The monthly Mayor's Minutes are on page two.

City council: no action on rezoning, paving

About 20 people packed the city council chambers for Monday's regular council meeting. The attendance was due to two public hearings concerning street repaving on Virginia and rezoning to allow two new bays at the Kendrick Fast Stop Truck Wash.

All council members were present as were city manager Patricia Phipps and city attorney Marcus Norris. The first public hearing was about the abandonment/closing of a portion of Virginia Street. Kendrick proposed to close about 140' feet of Virginia from Highway 60 south in order to repave it with cement. The repaving cost would be borne by Kendrick Oil. (more...)
