The Holts Summit Board of Aldermen will meet 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Holts Summit Municipal Center.

The board will discuss a number of bills and resolutions related to streets, windshields, the custody of records and the emergency warning system.

The board will hear a first reading of a change to Section 38-216 of the Holts Summit Code to provide clearer direction to developers of property inside and outside of city limits.

Connecting a gravel road directly to a paved street can lead to degradation and damage to the paved road over time. Because of this, the city requires anyone connecting a new road to existing city streets to include a section at the connection that matches the existing street.

New language proposes a length of 200 linear feet, meeting city standards.

Also on the agenda is a first reading of a new windshield policy — damaged or missing windshields and windshield wipers can be dangerous on the road.

The proposed bill includes a clear and undamaged windshield with a device equipped for cleaning rain, snow or other moisture.

The city will consider entering in an agreement with Blue Valley Safety, Inc. for maintenance of the emergency warning system.

During the discussion portion of the meeting, the aldermen will discuss a request for funds for the U.S. Department of Agriculture wastewater project, the recent Mayor's Cup fundraiser, insurance renewal and the accounts payable policy.

Derek Miles will also present on a Pro Foods variance request. The agenda does not specify the nature of the request.
