Anna City Council meets Aug. 1: School traffic pattern, 2018 fireworks discussed

Traffic patterns around a local school and plans for next year’s Independence Day fireworks display were among the items discussed at last week’s regular meeting of the Anna City Council.

The meeting was Tuesday evening, Aug. 1, at Anna City Hall.

The traffic situation is related to a project at Lincoln Elementary School, which is located on Warren Street in Anna. Lincoln is in Anna School District No. 37.

District superintendent Chuck Goforth attended the Aug. 1 city council meeting and discussed plans for traffic flow around the school.

A construction project which has been underway this summer at Lincoln essentially will lead to the front of the existing structure becoming the back. 

The addition which is being built at Lincoln will become the front of the building.

School officials have discussed new traffic patterns around the school with the Anna Police Department.

Parents of students at Lincoln also will be fully informed of plans for traffic.

In other business at last week’s meeting:

The council voted to have local resident Brad Dawson present the city’s 2018 Independence Day fireworks display.

Dawson stepped in at the last minute to present a well-received fireworks display on July 4 at the Anna City Park.

The city continues to move forward on plans which will allow Pets Are Worth Saving to build a new facility along Dogwalk Road in Anna. Current guidelines will need to be amended.

The council continued to discuss proposed regulations for yard sales in the community.
