his entry monument to Platte City has seen brighter days, and the City of Platte City is forming a group of three or four community members to assist in the design process for a new monument at this location. The sign is at the Main Street entrance to the city at Exit 19 off I-29, built on the side of the hill next to Platte Rental Supply (the old KC Bobcat building). There is another monument along Hwy. 92 as motorists enter the city from Tracy, but the improvement project will start by focusing on this sign at Exit 19. “The Tracy entrance monument looks great compared to the Main Street entrance monument,” said DJ Gehrt, city administrator.
