Members of the Palmyra City Council approved the plat for the Warren Head Business Park, discussing the latest progress in the area during their regular meeting Thursday, Aug. 23.

City Attorney Chase Hickman delivered the second reading of the bill pertaining to the plat for Warren Head Business Park, and council members unanimously approved it. Rack Builders Inc., doing business as Palmyra Industrial Inc., is currently building an 80,000-square foot expansion facility for its Quincy location. Street Commissioner Lynn Smith said street construction was moving forward smoothly, but a cul-de-sac on the south failed compaction tests.

Officials with Klingner and Associates worked with Tom Bleigh with Bleigh Construction to determine a solution. The results will include additional excavation and about 1,388 tons of larger rock being installed at a total cost of $18,753.79. Council members granted the change order for the project.
