Fulton City Hall is pictured here.

Representatives from the Callaway 200 will speak at tonight's Fulton City Council meeting, opening with a 6:30 p.m. workshop.

Callaway County will celebrate its 200th anniversary in 2020, and organizers are planning what they described last September as perhaps the biggest wing-ding ever to come to Callaway County. The celebration will kick off in October, followed by mid-year events and a finale in November 2020.

They will provide an update on their plans thus far tonight.

Tonight's regular 7 p.m. meeting will include three public hearings.

Tracts of land known as 205 and 209 Oak St. rezoning from R-2 Residential to M-1 Manufacturing.

Tracts of land known as 308 and 310 Oak St. rezoning from R-2 Residential to M-1 Manufacturing.

All four of the tracts are across the street from Danuser Machine Co., which is requesting the change. According to the minutes from the Feb. 27 Planning and Zoning Committee meeting, Janea Danuser, representing the firm, said this would be the company's third and final project, which will include the development of a parking lot and expansion of the manufacturing facility. She also stated there would be no increase of truck traffic on Fifth Street and there will be no new large equipment to increase noise levels.

Members of the Planning and Zoning Committee voted to approve the rezoning.

A tract of land known as 906 Westminster Ave. rezoning from R-2 Residential to R-3 Residential.

This project addresses the former George Washington Carver school, which has been proposed for repurposing as a senior housing project. This proposal has been through the city's Historic Preservation Committee with members approving the proposed rezoning.

City Council members also will discuss the purchase of a new street sweeper and improved city hall security, and hear ordinances regarding increased electric and trash collection rates plus the three rezoning requests.
