The bollards in downtown McMinnville will stay. The red bells once again escaped the chopping block when the measure was considered Tuesday night and unanimously tabled.A joint meeting of the Safety Committee and Streets and Sanitation Committee was held to discuss removing the bollards. On the committees are Aldermen Rick Barnes, Billy Wood, Jimmy Bonner and Mike Neal.Bonner is chairman of the Safety Committee.“I think the problem I’m having with the bollards is large trucks will come downtown and have no way to get out,” Bonner said.
