Tuesday night the Pawhuska City Council met for their monthly regular meeting. Once the official business portion of the agenda was completed the discussion turned to community events, and a new drive by the Pawhuska Police Department to slow down traffic along Main Street.
The City of Pawhuska is preparing for a storm, of tourism, when the Pioneer Woman Ree Drummond opens her Mercantile at the end of the month. In preparation the Pawhuska Police Department has been working to enforce cross walk usage and slow down the busy traffic along Main Street, which is also State Highway 60, and keep drivers watching for pedestrian traffic.
The conversation of parking once again arose during the meeting of the City Council, this time the discussion focused on parking enforcement or possibly setting up a means to collect parking fees, while no action was taken the discussion remains open.
One of the last items discussed was the 100th birthday of Pawhuska native, icon, and business owner Sally Carroll. The council was excited at the prospect to doing something to celebrate Carroll birthday later this month but did not share their plans.
The Pawhuska City Council will meet again Wednesday October 12, at noon for a Special Meeting at Pawhuska City Hall.
