Friday Greetings,

A handful of demonstrators from the Westboro Baptist Church staged a protest at the corner of 23rd and Howell this morning.  There was a group of counter-protestors in the area across the street from them.  The activities were closely monitored by the North Kansas City Police Department and the Clay County Sheriff’s Department.  There were no issues and no arrests were made.  The demonstration lasted approximately 30 minutes.  

The last of the three large sycamore trees located next to the playground in Macken Park is being removed today.  The first two trees removed were rotted in the middle from the ground up, and the one that is being removed today is also suspected to have a rotten core. An arborist for Custom Tree Care estimated the trees to be between 110-130 years old, based on his observation of the tree stumps. That means the trees were there before the City was incorporated in 1912. 

Parks & Recreation will host two great events at Macken Park on Saturday, September 15.  The Back to School Bash will be from 6-8:30 p.m. and Movies in the Park featuring Justice League will begin at dusk.  Both events are free and open to the public. 

Mayor Stielow, several City Councilmembers and staff will attend the Missouri Municipal League Annual Conference from Sunday, September 16 to Tuesday, September 18.  As a result of this conference, the City Council Meeting has been moved to Wednesday, September 19.
