Policy for city assistance suggested

When an oversized tractor-trailer came through Holton on Thursday afternoon, April 12, bearing a 256-ton power transformer and taking a convoluted path from west of Leavenworth to the Iatan power station in Platte County, Mo., northwest of Kansas City, it drew a lot of interest from people in town.

It also drew a handful of Holton city employees out to make sure the tractor-trailer and its load had a safe, unobstructed route through Holton — and it also got a member of the Holton City Commission asking who should cover any cost the city might bear for making those employees put in that extra work.

During the commission’s regular meeting on Monday, Commissioner Dan Brenner suggested that the city adopt policy charging contractors for the use of city employees and equipment when they are necessary to assist in moving large loads through the city, whether that assistance comes during or outside of regular business hours.
