Mayor Rudi invited Oakwood Manor Elementary School Principal Amy Casey to join her at the dais, where she read and presented the Proclamation to Ms. Casey.
Ms. Casey said she is very pleased with the partnership with the Gladstone senior citizen master gardeners who will be mentoring Oakwood Manor Elementary School students, as they plant and nurture a school garden, which supports not only the inter-generational piece, it is a great support for the school’s curriculum, when it comes to earth science, soil, and plants. The students will not just be looking at worksheets of the parts of a plant; they will be experiencing it through their work with the garden. This will also provide an emphasis on sustainability, going “green”, and the school’s colors are green, so the school goes “green” every day! Ms. Casey said the school is thrilled with this partnership, and thanked Mayor Rudi and Council members for the Proclamation.

Mayor Rudi said this has been a little bit of a school day, because Ms. Casey of Oakwood Manor Elementary School was present, as was Ms. McCann, who was a teacher at Chapel Hill Elementary School, both schools in Gladstone. Mayor Rudi said she was glad to see them this evening.

Item 8. on the Agenda. COMMUNICATIONS FROM THE AUDIENCE.
Stace Speiser, 6109 North Michigan Avenue, said he was part of a group of people in attendance, all of who live on the 6100 block of North Michigan Avenue, for the purpose of getting some suggestion from Council as to what to do about traffic. There have been several cars that have been speeding in the neighborhood, and the neighbors have dealt with this for years, and they have even stopped cars before, because it is getting so frustrating. There was an accident the other day where a speeding driver seriously injured a fifteen-year old girl. Mr. Speiser said he realized this falls under law enforcement, but on the other vein, he would like to present this to City Council as far as they would like to seriously explore the idea of putting two speed bumps on this street. There has been a general consensus of many of the neighbors, and they can further that and get more exact numbers in the future. Mr. Speiser said they see this as the only foolproof way to slow down the traffic.
Mr. Speiser introduced Jason Lindsay and his daughter, Maggie, who were mostly impacted by the accident a couple of weeks ago. Mr. Speiser said he wanted City Council members to hear what happened that night, and perhaps some solutions may be discussed.
Jason and Maggie Lindsay, 6015 North Michigan Avenue, Mr. Lindsay began by saying they had a visit by Officer Willoughby this evening, who stopped by to see how Maggie was doing. Mr. Lindsay said on August 26, at approximately 10:00 PM, he was inside the house getting ready for bed, and Maggie was sitting outside on the tailgate of their truck in the driveway, talking to a friend on the cell phone. There was a car that was speeding southbound on Michigan Avenue at a pretty high rate of speed. Maggie and a neighbor observed the driver, when he was at 6019 North Michigan Avenue, he jerked his wheel suddenly to the left, and he struck a 2006 Chevy Cobalt, and he knocked the axel out of it. The driver did not, apparently, hit his brakes and continued coming through Mr. Lindsay’s neighbor’s yard into his driveway, striking his 2003 Chevy F-150, full size four-door truck – t-boning the truck his daughter was sitting in.
Mr. Lindsay said his daughter was flung against a tree in their yard. The F-150 struck his 1998 Ford Explorer, sending both vehicles into his front yard, leaving them parallel parked in front of the house. Mr. Lindsay said when he came out, Maggie was wrapped around a tree, with the tailgate on top of her. She sustained a broken left hip, her small intestines were ripped open on the inside, and they spent five hours in the emergency room, with constant vomiting, and Maggie strapped to a board. Emergency surgery was performed that night to repair the rip in her intestines. Mr. Lindsay said Maggie has been in a wheelchair for a month and will be in it for another six to eight weeks, and then doctors will determine if she needs surgery of her hip to put pins in to repair the hip. Mr. Lindsay said it seems ludicrous that they are not safe in their own driveway. This is what the neighbors have been trying to fight for years. Mr. Lindsay thanked the City Council for their time.
Don Faudel, 6209 North Michigan, said during the day, he is usually sitting in front of his house doing a project of one sort or another, and he has his phone with him. He sees the cars coming from Shady Lane by the elementary school, and by the time the cars get to his house, which is 600 feet from the stop sign, the cars are usually doing 35 to 40 miles per hour in the 20 miles per hour zone. This is not only a neighborhood, but also a neighborhood with a school nearby. Mr. Faudel said he is sure everyone has driven down Shady Lane towards North Oak Trafficway, and there is a community there, Oakview, where people know not to drive faster than the speed limit, because they will get a ticket. Mr. Faudel said when he first moved to Gladstone, one of the things he heard about Gladstone was don’t speed, because you will get a ticket.
Mr. Faudel said on the way to tonight’s meeting, while driving on North Troost, where the speed limit is 30 miles per hour, there was driver tailgating his wife, and in a hurry. He could not wait, and passed them at about 50 miles per hour on the left hand side. They were getting ready to turn left and there was very nearly another accident. Mr. Faudel said it is not just in their neighborhood, but also throughout the city. Mr. Faudel said he has called the Police Department many times and said, “Gladstone’s raceway is open today”, and they ask what he means, and he explains the cars are driving down the street 60 to 70 miles per hour, and he is not exaggerating. Mr. Faudel said he believes speed bumps would definitely help his neighborhood.
Mitz Kritzler, 6106 North Michigan, said she was present to discuss the speeding on her street. On July 18, a dog was hit, and nobody stopped for it, and then right after that her neighbor, Jeff, was coming down the street heading south. There was a car behind him, and Jeff put his blinker on to turn into his driveway, when the car tried to pass him, and almost hit him. Jeff lost his bike down on the ground, and the guy got out and starting cussing him out. Jeff said he was not going to take this and called the police, and the guy backed all the way down the street. Ms. Kritzler said Don, who just spoke, tried to catch him, but he could not. Jeff went around later to find the speeder and he did find him, and he had to call the police there, as there were some things that went on. On August 26, Maggie was hit. Ms. Kritzler said they are tired of the speeding and there are a lot of kids in the neighborhood, and they want something done.
Mayor Rudi asked Assistant City Manager Scott Wingerson if staff has met with this neighborhood, and asked for an update on this matter.
Assistant City Manager Scott Wingerson replied that he believed some conversations have begun. Mr. Wingerson said the neighbors mentioned visiting with Officer Willoughby, and Public Safety Director Mike Hasty has been involved, and he is sure those discussions will continue. The Public Works folks will be involved to see what type of traffic calming mechanisms might be appropriate in that general area. Speed bumps are one devise. They come with positive aspects, but they also come with unforeseen consequences. Mr. Wingerson said staff would be happy to work with the neighborhood, as they have with numerous other issues over the years, to see if the problem can be solved. Mr. Wingerson said in the short term, Director Hasty will be providing additional enforcement on Michigan and Euclid and the connecting streets in the general vicinity, and we will try to come to a consensus on a longer-term solution.
Mayor Rudi asked if the Robo Cop has been in the area.
Mr. Faudel said that has been tried. It is down and the neighbors were told it needed parts for it. Mr. Faudel said he did request the traffic trailer to be set on their street and it has been there in the past. The traffic trailer was going the wrong way; it was set 50 feet north of the stop sign, pointing south. It should have been pointing the other direction coming southbound on North Michigan. Mr. Faudel said the last time he asked to have the traffic trailer in the neighborhood, an officer stopped at the house, and told him that it was out of commission. Someone had thrown suntan lotion on it, and it embedded into the machine, and Public Safety was waiting for parts. Mr. Faudel said he asked if Public Safety officers could just sit on their street with a car. If someone sees a cop, they slow down. Mr. Faudel said last Monday, there was a police officer standing in his front yard, shooting radar. She got nine or ten people in the first hour. The more they sit there, the more they will get. The same officer stopped by his house yesterday and asked if things had improved a little bit, and his reply was it had somewhat, but there have still been lots of cars.
Mayor Pro Tem Les Smith said he was glad to hear that staff is communicating with the neighborhood. That is a good thing. Unfortunately, with 400 lane miles of street in our city, we cannot sit everywhere. Robo Cop proves to be especially successful, if you have a real officer backing it up every now and then, so folks know when that Robo Cop says slow down, they mean it. Mayor Pro Tem Smith said there are a lot of alternatives out there now. There are Robo Cops on poles that are solar paneled, and different varieties of what we are trying to do, because we only have one, so perhaps, we should look at more for other places around the city. Speed bumps don’t really work; speed humps might be a better alternative. They are wider and they have the same effect of a speed bump, but they are not as aggravating to the neighbors, who have to drive over it all the time, and they don’t tear up the snowplows quite as bad. That may be an alternative, but we have tried to avoid those in our community over time.
Mayor Pro Tem Smith said he used to live in this area quite a few years ago. Since the tornado wiped out so many trees, it just seemed to have opened up the street, and it looks like a raceway. Mayor Pro Tem Smith said he sympathizes with the neighbors and he is glad that staff is communicating with them. Mayor Pro Tem Smith said he would like to have a report on what the resolution might be at the next City Council meeting, and not leave this open ended. Mayor Pro Tem Smith asked Mr. Wingerson if that was possible.
Mr. Wingerson replied that report would be available at the next City Council meeting.
Mayor Rudi asked if the neighborhood had one particular contact person, and said it would help if staff could contact one person. Mayor Rudi asked Public Safety Director Hasty to meet with the neighbors to obtain a name and phone number, and said that Council would expect to receive a report at the next City Council meeting.
Mr. Speiser said just to be clear, we have gotten fairly good response the last week or two from the Police Department. There have been more officers writing tickets. There is still an issue with two particular cars. The neighbors have given the Police the license plate numbers of the cars, the time of day, and where they live. The thing that he has requested for months is just a visit from an officer saying, “knock it off”. Mr. Speiser said he knows they cannot write a ticket, but they can certainly go knock on the front door, and to his knowledge, that has not been done yet, as a matter of fact, the one car that they have been trying to get stopped, came by at 10:21 PM last night, about 30 to 35 miles per hour, pulling a skateboard. They like riding on the running boards of this particular truck. Mr. Speiser said that is what they are dealing with, and said pardon us if we are a little bit frustrated, but this has been a 20-year issue. The Robo Cop was turned around the right direction for a while. The kids loved to throw baseballs at it, but it did not do a lot for the traffic; however, maybe some of the permanent type situations like you see on the interstates that start flashing and is there all the time, would be a good idea.
Mayor Pro Tem Smith said he is glad to hear the officers are responding, which is what he would expect, because they are good at what they do. The neighbors can appreciate the fact that there is only so many dollars, and so many officers who can be at so many places at so many times.
Mr. Speiser agreed, and said that is why there has to be some type of control device, because they could sit out there five days per week, and still not catch the transients that are going to fly through. They know that speed humps are an issue with the City and everybody, but what surprised him was how many of the neighbors who want that.
Mayor Pro Tem Smith said neighbors do want them for a while, but after they hit them everyday three or four times, it is surprising how quickly neighborhoods get tired of them. The City has been down that path.
Mr. Speiser said if some ideas could come forward at the next meeting, that would be good, and in the mean time, the officers are writing more tickets, which will help out too, and he believes they are on the right course.
Item 9. on the Agenda. COMMUNICATIONS FROM THE CITY COUNCIL.
Councilman Barry McCullough thanked Amy Casey for Oakwood Manor’s wonderful event yesterday. It was neat to be part of that, especially as a former student of Oakwood Manor, along with Ms. Swenson, which made it even more rewarding.
Councilmember Carol Suter stated for the record, she wished to recognize the people who have graciously agreed to serve on the Complete Count Census Committee. Council just passed a Resolution approving our city’s participation in that effort as that is helpful for our city to get some grant money from the federal government to cover some events. The people who have agreed to serve are: Mary Zuva Clark, Everett Jones, Freddie Nichols, Carl, (JoJo) Pacubas, Kirk Forslund, Su Bacon, and Bob Baer. Councilmember Suter said it was fun to convene this group, because every person who she asked said an enthusiastic “yes”. People were actually flattered, and several expressed that they felt honored that they were asked to serve their city. Councilmember Suter said it reinforced for her that interaction with people, and then at their first meeting with the regional census staff person, how important our long-term strategy is, as a city, to nurture active citizen engagement. Tham Vo, who is the regional staff person, and who is overseeing five or six states for the feds on the census, was so blown away when she came to the first meeting, and she said she could not believe it – she was just at our Council meeting, and within three weeks, Gladstone has a committee and is ready to go. Ms. Vo said that is absolutely unheard of, and with almost everyone else that they work with it is like “pulling teethe”; nobody in any American city can get volunteers, and they cannot get people willing to serve and do anything.
Councilmember Suter said Ms. Vo was really intrigued about why Gladstone is so different, and how did we get this done. Councilmember Suter said she told Ms. Vo this is a long-term strategy of our city. Councilmember Suter said the second thing this confirmed to her was that this is a brilliant strategy, because it is producing wonderful people like these, who are willing, eager, able and available to the City to serve, and she is looking forward to working with this group, and is looking forward to setting standards for lots of other cities in the area, as they try to keep up with us and how well organized we are and how enthusiastic we are.
Councilman Mark Revenaugh congratulated the Community Center staff; he has spent quite a few hours in the Community Center since it opened. There are not too many things that people might say that government does well, and that is certainly one instance where the government of the people of Gladstone truly knows how to run a Community Center. The staff does a fantastic job. Councilman Revenaugh said he has been all around the city, has talked to elected officials in all of our regional cities, and our Community Center is the envy of them all, which has been the case since it opened, and the fact that we operate it profitably is a testament to Parks and Recreation Director Sheila Lillis and her expertise and experience in picking staff. This has been a super project.
Councilman Revenaugh said he also wished to congratulate Public Information Officer Richard King and Economic Development Administrator Melinda Mehaffy for another excellent issue of “Coming Home to Gladstone” magazine. People from other cities have told him their magazine is nothing like our magazine. It is an impressive publication, and there is even an article about sustainability, and what one can do. Councilman Revenaugh said he thinks it is neat that City Engineer Tim Nebergall and his staff, and all the City staff have embraced sustainability. Councilman Revenaugh said he is in the process of replacing all of his light bulbs with CFLs. This is something he would not have considered doing before, but the more educated he becomes about sustainability, and how even individuals can make a big difference, has motivated him to even put insulation behind the switches in the wall of his house to try to cut down on energy leakage. These are just two examples of things that all of our residents can be doing, and there is something that everyone can do to participate in helping to sustain our environment.
Mayor Pro Tem Les Smith said he would like to publicly offer his condolences to City Manager Kirk Davis and his family on the passing of his mother this past week.
Mayor Carol Rudi asked Parks and Recreation Director Sheila Lillis to report on the events coming up at Oak Grove Park.
Parks and Recreation Director Sheila Lillis reported that the UMKC Broad Brass Band would be performing at the Gladstone Amphitheatre in Oak Grove Park, on September 27, at 3:00 PM.
Mayor Smith said on October 11, the Northwinds Jazz Band would be performing at 3:00 PM, and Friday Fright Night will be held on October 30.
Director Lillis thanked Mayor Smith for helping her!
Mayor Rudi informed the audience that this information is available on the City’s website. Mayor Rudi said the City’s annual Gladfest celebration will be October 2-4, and there will be a lot of things going on around City Hall, and they are looking for volunteers, so anyone who is interested, please call the Gladstone Chamber.
Item 10. on the Agenda. COMMUNICATIONS FROM THE CITY MANAGER.
Assistant City Manager Scott Wingerson said he would like to echo the comments from Mayor Pro Tem Smith on the passing of City Manager Kirk Davis’s mom over the weekend. Mr. Wingerson said we are all thinking of him, and he would encourage everyone to keep Kirk in their thoughts. He would have been proud tonight. Mr. Wingerson said City Manager Davis had a big role in providing leadership on all three items on the Open Study Session agenda this evening, so when thinking of him personally, also think of him professionally, and he knows he would appreciate that.
Item 11. on the Agenda. RESOLUTION R-09-73, approving an Interlocal Agreement by and between the Cities of Gladstone, Belton, Harrisonville, Lawson, Lee’s Summit, Liberty, Raytown, Sugar Creek and Wood Heights, Missouri to facilitate the implementation of the Neighborhood Stabilization Program.
Mayor Pro Tem Les Smith moved to adopt RESOLUTION R-09-73, approving an Interlocal Agreement by and between the Cities of Gladstone, Belton, Harrisonville, Lawson, Lee’s Summit, Liberty, Raytown, Sugar Creek and Wood Heights, Missouri to facilitate the implementation of the Neighborhood Stabilization Program. Councilman Mark Revenaugh seconded. Councilman Barry McCullough seconded. The Vote All “aye” - Councilman Barry McCullough, Councilmember Carol Suter, Councilman Mark Revenaugh, Mayor Pro Tem Les Smith, and Mayor Carol Rudi. (5-0).
Item 12. on the Agenda. RESOLUTION R-09-74, granting the provisional renewal of a Class “A” Liquor By the Drink License to Millennium 2, Inc., doing business as "The Lost Bar," with special conditions.
Mayor Pro Tem Les Smith moved to adopt RESOLUTION R-09-74, granting the provisional renewal of a Class “A” Liquor By the Drink License to Millennium 2, Inc., doing business as "The Lost Bar," with special conditions. Councilman Mark Revenaugh seconded.
Mayor Pro Tem Smith said although he concurs with staff recommendation on this, the one thing that kind of bothers him a bit is that under the findings in the body of the Resolution, Number 2., it states “that these incidents reflect a lack of training and supervision of employees of The Lost Bar in controlling sales of liquor to minors”. Mayor Pro Tem Smith stated this is hard to judge. There were three incidents by three separate employees. That is something to get one’s attention, but he believes it is somewhat unfair of us to pass judgment on the owners of the business that they don’t supervise or train their employees. Anyone who has had employees know that is a difficult task, so he does not know that we should be in the business of casting judgment.
Mayor Rudi asked if Mayor Pro Tem Smith is recommending changes to this action.
Mayor Pro Tem replied no.
The Vote All “aye” - Councilman Barry McCullough, Councilmember Carol Suter, Councilman Mark Revenaugh, Mayor Pro Tem Les Smith, and Mayor Carol Rudi. (5-0).
