Construction crews cut down and clean up a tree on the sidewalk along the north side of West Broadway Street on Sunday morning, Oct. 25.  The loss of the trees, west of the square, was mourned by area businesses and residents, who took to social media to lament its loss.

After speaking to the City Administrator, Mayor, and Police Chief, no one was aware that this was taking place. Wright Tree Service shut down a State Highway without the Missouri Department of Transportation knowledge and did not have the proper signage and detour route posted.

One person on site told me the highway wasn’t closed even though there were barricades and cones across both lanes of traffic and a makeshift road closed sign.
