SIKESTON -- City zoning on State Highway 61 North will remain as it is now: commercial.

During its special meeting Monday, the Sikeston City Council voted down a request to rezone approximately 30 acres alongside the highway north of the Scott County Health Department from C-1 neighborhood shopping and C-3 highway commercial to O-1 office district.
