Despite objections from some members over undefined expenses, the Fulton City Council Tuesday night approved a resolution authorizing the city to enter an agreement with the YMCA of Callaway County for construction of a walking trail from the north side of the YMCA parking lot extending north to Hornet Drive.
The council previously had expressed approval to contribute approximately $78,000 toward the estimated $118,000 project — higher than its original share after Fulton Public Schools were forced to back out due to budget issues — because the YMCA was in danger of losing one of two $20,000 grants it had secured if the project was not started by the end of August.
During Tuesday night’s meeting, however, Ward 4 Councilman Steve Moore expressed concerns regarding wording in the agreement that he felt leaves the city open for potential additional expenses.
