Courthouse damage, trucking around the Square
Damage to the historic Adair County Courthouse has generated a healthy discussion among residents and at the first March Fiscal Court meeting. Lee Ann Jessee and Mike Watson were asked to present information on the most recent efforts at restoration done by the Adair Heritage Association. (The Heritage Association is headquartered at the Adair County Public Library and all the research is there.)
Questions under consideration include whether to patch the damaged wing, or, just remove the wing, using the insurance money as partial payment for it. The four wings are not part of the original landmark historic building and opinion polls have shown many would like to see them removed and have the grass restored around the original building.
While Judge Executive Gale Cowan gathers bids for repairs on the building damaged by the Amazon truck, several have put their ideas and questions on the subject in writing and are shared below.
Columbia Magazine especially appreciates viewpoints and ideas from truck drivers who have had to deal with problem areas in their careers, problem areas like the Public Square in Columbia. One letter makes it clear: "...One of the things I saw a lot would be a sign at each end of a by-pass showing "Truck Route" using that road, and a sign on the other road indicating "Local Deliveries Only," with a picture of a truck on both signs..."
Damage to the Courthouse February 20, 2021 and letters that followed from CM readers:
Use caution on the square
Drivers could use help in hazardous navigation
It's the fault of the government(s)
Signage would help truck drivers
Signs and lights needed
Commercial vehicles need guidelines
Can we just remove the wings?
Hoping there is insurance
GPS does not help truck drivers
Jake breaks need to be controlled
Trucks are longer now than when Square was built
