Opponents of a downtown drive-through restaurant and supporters of red-light cameras made no headway in Wednesday's KCMO city council committee meetings, but but neither are ready to throw in the towel.
Supporters and opponents of a proposed moratorium on all drive-thru restaurant construction in the downtown loop argued for more than two hours at a public hearing held by the Planning and Zoning committee.
A city council committee set a hot button issue aside to cool for another week. The debate is over the city turning off 37 traffic lights in east-central Kansas City which by federal standards are no longer needed.
Traffic light changes stopped for one week
Some area residents did not agree with the city manager that four-way stop signs would be safer at intersections that were near schools. And a resolution to turn 23 of the 37 back on was introduced.
