Traffic will be studied by MoDOT on U.S. 63 at Houston.

The Houston City Council approved plans Monday for MoDOT to perform a study of traffic along U.S. 63. 

The review will include such things as speed limits, turning lanes and signage. 

The action came during the six-member board’s meeting.

The council also voted to spend up to $1,000 to disc, seed and fertilize property west of the industrial park for the addition of a soccer field that will open in the fall. The tract is owned by the Tuttle family. 

In other matters, members:

—Discussed no loitering signage for a parking lot situated at Lone Star Plaza. Trash has become an issue there. 

—Asked Brad Eidson, city attorney, to prepare documents for abandonment of a city alley way near Second Street. Steve Drake has purchased property there. 

—Decided delinquent utility bills will be sent to either court or a collection agency, depending on the amount.

Also attending the meeting were Superintendent Scott Dill and Ron Reed, economic developer.
