HANNIBAL, Mo. -- The Oak Spring Subdivision is a step closer to becoming a reality after the Hannibal City Council approved the first reading of its amended final plat. The action was taken Tuesday night at Hannibal City Hall.

Due to terrain grades and its proximity to an existing house, a portion of Oak Spring Drive needed to be adjusted by approximately 14 feet.

The 48.5-acre property, located on Westover Road, is intended to include 41 lots ranging in size from 0.5 acre to a little over 3 acres.

The Hannibal Board of Public Works has reviewed the amended plat regarding the sewer and is satisfied with the changes. Neither was there any objections from the city's acting engineer.

The Hannibal Planning and Zoning Commission approved the amended final plat during its July 18 meeting.

In other business:

Street closure requests from the Historic Hannibal Marketing Council were approved for the Living "Dead" Windows on Saturday, Oct. 26, the Main Street Trick-or-Treat on Thursday, Oct. 31, during Oktoberfest from Sept. 27-29, and during the Christmas Living Windows on Saturday, Dec. 14.

A request for street closures was approved during the Saturday, May 9, 2020, car show.

Approval was given to handicap parking at 1708 Ruby Ave., 3919 New London Gravel Road and at 511 Hill St.

A public hearing was scheduled for 6:45 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 20, regarding the 2019 ad valorem tax rate.

The mayor was authorized to execute an amendment to an escrow trust agreement (early payoff) with the Public Water Supply District No. 1 of Ralls County and the Bank of New York Trust Company.

Final reading was given a bill revising city guidelines regarding sewers and sewage disposal.

Second and final reading was given a bill amending certain duties assigned to the traffic committee and moved those responsibilities to the city's new roadway commission.

The reappointments were approved of Quintin Heaton, Tom Batenhorst and Beth Knight to the park board. Their terms expire in July, 2022.
