Welcome to Chillicothe, Missouri

 Thanks to several projects underway by Main Street Chillicothe, the city is getting "spruced up for Spring." The planters throughout downtown are now decorated with a variety of seasonal flowers by Beth Wiedner of Weeds Greenhouse. Main Street Chillicothe employees and Green Hills Communications also recently painted two crosswalks in the newly named Kelly Poling Arts District. The new mural depicting the Leeper Hotel and other downtown sites is also taking shape. Weather pending, the newest mural should be competed in the next few weeks.

The City Council voted recently to move forward with plans to demolish the old Chillicothe Municipal Utilities' old steam plant and also passed an ordinance establishing a local bid preference policy. The building was built in 1938, but steam plant usage began to slow after the diesel plant was installed to produce power. The steam plant continued on for several more years only being used during summer and winter peak times. Crews are expected to start work around August 1 and will have five months to complete the demolition. Second Ward City Councilman Wayne Cunningham verified that every effort was going to be taken to save the stone archway around the main doors and the sign reading "Chillicothe Power Plant" for use at a later time in an appropriate place in the city.

Just a day before the end of the legislative session in Jefferson City, lawmakers gave final approval to a House Bill, which, among other things, designated July 7 as Missouri Sliced Bread Day. During the 2018 session, Representative Rusty Black introduced Sliced Bread Day in Missouri, however, the language got added to another bill that did not pass out of the Missouri Senate, despite the best efforts by local Senator Denny Hoskins. However, this year, Black and Hoskins were able to ensure the language was added to another similar bill and was able to pass in the final days of the 2019 legislative session. Sliced Bread Days will be celebrated July 5-7 in conjunction with the Freedom Festival.
