The plans for a Walmart at 3350 and 3400 N. Highway 67 remain up in the air as the representatives for the plan were no-shows to the latest public hearing.
According to the Independent News, petitioner Jeff Otto did not attend the public hearing at the previous City Council meeting on Jan. 28. It was postponed from an earlier meeting in January.
Previously, Walmart received approval of its development plans last year from the council and has requested an amendment to its plans, which have a cause of concern for City Engineer Tim Barrett.
Barrett told the council that he’s worried about the truck traffic for the development as well as “soil in the flood plane fringe,” which violates city ordinance, according to the article.
The council postponed the public once more until its Feb. 11 meeting.
