Jeff street committee okays pair of projects

A pair of projects that will help financially challenged residents go the go-ahead from the Jefferson city council’s street committee Tuesday.

Dianne Blackmer, volunteer coordinator of the Greene County Christian Action Resource Center (food pantry) in the 100 block of E. Harrison St, got permission to reserve parking spaces near the building for clients who can’t walk easily. The signs will be posted east of the alley to the corner of Chestnut St, and across the street east of Danielson’s, when the food pantry is open Wednesday mornings.

The Action Resource Center will provide the signs and volunteers will place them and take them down.

Also, Mary Ocker, a member of The Sanctuary in Jefferson, received permission for Women Encouraging Women to place assistance boxes in the community. The boxes will resemble the Little Free Libraries already found in town. Inside will be personal hygiene items, box meals, and other items people in need can take.

The group plans to put the first one on E. Lincoln Way across from the Milwaukee depot at the office of The Sanctuary.
