Discussing the Alleys
However, the city council tabled the measure Monday night. The council made its decision after hearing public concerns.
The proposed names of the alleys are Lancaster, Sorin, Barth, McQuitty and Nowell.
The council wants more public imput on naming the alleys. In a related issue, the council wants to review arrangements for snow removal, delivery trucks and emergency responders.
Local business owners find all this attention on the alleys good.
"In order for us to be a progressive, you know good community where people want to come. I think that is great. I think that they are taking on a responsibility or considering it, that would defiantly help our shopping area," said Ruth LaHue, owner of My Secret Garden.
The Columbia City Council will meeting again on November 5.
