Public notice regarding the Old Parkville Cemetery located on 9 Highway

LogoTransparentThe City of Parkville is issuing the following public notice regarding the Old Parkville Cemetery located on 9 Highway. 

The City of Parkville Municipal Code states that any person or persons residing within the limits of the City of Parkville, or related by consanguinity (blood) or affinity (marriage) to a person buried in the Old Parkville Cemetery may purchase a burial plot.  However, the cemetery is full and there are no longer burial plots available for purchase.

The City of Parkville is issuing public notice of a 90 day notification period, beginning September 10, 2015 and ending December 9, 2015, for any remaining relatives of those buried in the Old Parkville Cemetery to contact the City to reserve the right to burial on a family plot. Due to space constraints, any future burials will be limited to cremation only. Following the notification period, the City plans to propose an ordinance to amend Parkville Municipal Code Section 155.030 closing the Old Parkville Cemetery to ALL future burials, except for to those who responded during the notification period, rendering the cemetery inactive.

Those that wish to reserve the right to burial on a family plot must prove consanguinity (blood) or affinity (marriage) relations. Consanguinity will be limited to a third degree relationship (Parent, Child, Brother/Sister, Aunt/Uncle, Niece/Nephew, Grandparent, Grandchild, Great Grandparent, and Great Grandchild) and affinity will be limited to a second degree relationship (Spouse, Parent-in-Law, and Daughter/Son-in-Law).  Please contact Tim Blakeslee at the City of Parkville 816-741-7676 or tblakeslee@parkvillemo.gov with any questions.

PARKVILLE POLICE DEPARTMENT RECEIVES INTERACTIVE MILO RANGE SIMULATOR

LogoTransparentThe City of Parkville is excited to announce that the Parkville Police Department was selected to host the MILO Range Simulator. The MILO Range Simulator is on loan from Midwest Public Risk (MPR), a municipal risk pool to which the City belongs for Property & Liability and Workers’ Compensation coverage. Parkville was the first community selected by MPR to host the equipment on-site for training simulations.

The MILO Range Simulator is a world-class interactive simulation training product. Since 1994, the award-winning MILO product line has been continuously selected as the de-facto training simulator for all branches of law enforcement, military, security, and public safety agencies throughout the United States.

The MILO Range Simulator is an interactive device that displays virtual use-of-force and shoot/don’t shoot training scenarios on a large projector screen.  These life-like training scenarios provide a safe learning environment for law performance personnel.

Earlier this year, Parkville Police Captain Jon Jordan received his MILO training certification.  Captain Jordan is able to set-up, manage, and train others on the use of the MILO machine. Captain Jordan said that “The MILO Range Simulator provides an opportunity to evaluate and improve officer cognitive skills in a simulated stress situation.  It also allows the trainer to safely discuss all levels of use-of-force in real time.”

Parkville City Administrator Lauren Palmer went through a handful of scenarios on the MILO Range Simulator.  Following her experience, she said that “I have a new appreciation for the tough decisions police officers have to make in the field to keep us all safe. I am so pleased that Chief Chrisman and Captain Jordan took the initiative to secure this training tool to help better prepare Parkville officers.” The Mayor and members of the Board of Aldermen will test the MILO Range Simulator at 5:45 p.m. prior to the regular Board meeting on September 1, 2015. Members of the press who are interested in observing the elected officials demonstration should contact Captain Jordan at (816)-741-4454. Use of the MILO Range Simulator by the general public must be handled by appointment only due to limited space and availability.

The Parkville Police Department will be hosting the MILO Range Simulator through mid-September. For more information regarding the MILO Range Simulator please contact Parkville City Hall at (816) 741-7676 or cityhall@parkvillemo.gov.
