A Warrensburg resident voiced his concerns about a Holiday Inn currently being built on Highway 50 to members of City Council Monday night.

David Ewing came armed with a Powerpoint presentation that illustrated his frustrations with the project. Ewing lives on Walnut Lane, 90 feet from the Holiday Inn Express & Suites.

A list of concerns about the four-story structure includes the height of a berm (too short), lighting (way too much), water drainage and privacy, to name a few.

“It's not a feasible situation,” he told Council, adding that he sent a certified letter explaining his concerns to the owner of the hotel, Dorothy Krzyostaniak, which she allegedly refused to accept.

He has been, however, in email contact with the hotel architect, Mr. Tiedemann.

Since the appearance by Ewing was not on the official council agenda, no discussion could take place, explained, City Manager Harold Stewart. The Council did, however patiently listen to his concerns. The issue may be placed on a future Council agenda, it was noted.
