Warrenton changes how permits will be handled for downtown events


The Warrenton Board of Alderman approved a change to downtown events during its Aug. 1 meeting.

The minor change now requires anyone wishing to have an event in the Main Street Overlay District to file for a permit at least 30 days prior to the event. Previously, the permit application was due 120 days before the event.

The application also no longer has to be approved by the Warrenton Downtown Association before it can be approved by aldermen. Instead, city staff will decide whether to recommend that aldermen approve the permit.

Also during the meeting, aldermen approved street closures for the Warrenton High School homecoming parade and annexing a small section of land north of Interstate 70 and east of Big Creek on the Northwest Service Road into the city.

A public hearing on the annexation occurred during the July 18 meeting, but no member of the public spoke. The city said it had received no objection to the annexation since that meeting.

All measures passed the board 5-0. Board of Aldermen President Jack Crump was absent.
