PIQUA — Short is the agenda for Tuesday’s commission meeting beginning with a presentation by Cindy Bach, solid waste coordinator for Miami County before a move to executive session to consider the purchase or sale of property for public purposes.

Old business will include a final reading on an ordinance that would see the creation of a four-way stop at the current two-way stop intersection of Park Ave./Lambert Drive. After a request was made by an area resident over the intersection in regards to pedestrian safety, or too many close calls, as explained by Amy Havenar, city engineer, at subsequent meetings.

Study results cited terrain, speed, traffic and the number of pedestrians, particularly school children warrant the change if adopted upon the third reading by commission members.

New business will involve discussion on a resolution to authorize a purchase order for John Deere lawn mowers for the Public Works Department-Streets and Parks.

Commission meetings are held at 7:30 p.m. every first and third Tuesday of the month, on the second floor of the Government Municipal Complex, in the commission chamber. The public is invited and encouraged to attend. For information on meetings, work sessions, and more visit piquaoh.org.
