Grandview City Council Briefs


The Monson family's feedlot operation, just to the west of Sunnyside, will soon be a distant but not forgotten memory to local residents. The City of Sunnyside purchased the 150-acre plot from the Monson's last night for a reported $2.5 million. The cattle feedlot operation routinely has anywhere from 2,000 to nearly 3,000 cows on-hand on any given day.


Council opts to leave damaged intersection as four-way stop

GRANDVIEW - Monday night, Grandview City Council voted to leave the damaged intersection at Grandridge Road and West Second Street as a four-way stop, for now.

The intersection was damaged two weeks ago when a semi-truck hit one of the overhead wires and a fire hydrant, bringing down several service poles and the stop lights they supported.

Council opted to leave the intersection as a four-way stop while the city pursues emergency funding through the Transportation Improvement Board. The funding would make it possible for the city to upgrade the intersection to include a steel pole signal system with mast arms, pedestrian signals and a new turn radius that would make it easier for semi-trucks to make it through the intersection. The estimated cost of the upgrade is $262,000.
