Ellisville City Council Has Funeral Protests, City Manager Contract on Agenda

Check the agenda for the Ellisville City Council meeting Nov. 7.

Ellisville City Council will review funeral protests, site development and plat plans for the Fountains villas, and City Manager Kevin Bookout's contract at the Nov. 7 meeting.

Gathering for the first time since Oct. 17, the Council will review Bookout's contract specifically revising severance terms. The city manager contract would call for six months salary and health insurance upon leave by removal or resignation. The updated version would include another month's salary per year served in the position, capping at a 12-month severance pay. Bookout has been with the City of Ellisville since 2006.

Other items on the agenda: 

  • A petition from West County Honda and Royal Gate Dodge for permission to temporarily park vehicles on property at 15970 and 15978 Manchester Road
  • An ordinance for the final plat and amendment of the site development plan of the Fountains villas on Clayton Road; developers are requesting to build more of a specific floorplan villa instead of another that has proved to be less successful real estate
  • An ordinance amending commercial zoning districts legislation
  • An ordinance "enacting a new section relative to protests at funerals"

Check back with Ballwin-Ellisville Patch for updates on these decisions. View the full agenda here for the Nov. 7 meeting at 7 p.m. at Ellisville City Hall.

I've dealt with Mr. Bookout on a couple of occasions over the years, and found him to be really responsive and helpful. On another note, is it really necessary to put in an ordinance to try to prevent the Westboro crazies from protesting in Ellisville? It'll likely not hold up in court, and tie up the city. Additionally, it would more likely make Ellisville attractive to Westboro for any services. They MAKE MONEY from suing towns who try to prevent their free speech rights. Aren't there more important issues to spend time on?
