SIKESTON - With the passage of a new ordinance, an apparent solution to a question over which governing body has authority over conditional use of property in a transitional zone was reached by the city council. The problem arose over a request from Bootheel Counseling Services to operate a rehabilitation center for its clients during daytime hours. The proposed site is 325 Tanner St., which is in the transitional zone district. The Board will consider the request from Bootheel Counseling Services at its April 20 meeting.
