BY TORY DUNCAN

Sutton’s planning and zoning commission forwarded a zoning change option to the Sutton City Council Aug. 7, to approve the construction of a new 21-unit storage unit facility on East Maple Street, during their monthly meeting, Monday, Aug. 13.

Council members took up the change, as proposed by Mark Fehr of Sutton, approving the construction of the new mini-storage facility, which will be located at 1009 East Maple, directly north of Aspegren Repair.

Originally, the land in which Fehr will build the units was zoned residential, and per the suggestion by the Sutton planning and zoning board, council members approved the change of the zoning status from residential to commercial.

Clay Center future pool facts presented at Back-to-School Bash

BY ASHLEY D. SWANSON

During the annual Clay Center Community Club Back-to-School Bash Monday, a rendering for the possible future pool in Clay Center, along with information about the project was available for attendees.

The current pool is 60 years old, being constructed in 1958, and was originally designed to last about 25 years before updates would be needed.

Along with excessive water leakage, the pool has a number of issues that have come with age, including the need of a filter system replacement, where the parts are obsolete; the pool currently does not meet ADA accessibility standards; and the decking is beginning to sink, causing extra safety issues.
