One permit was presented for review. Douglas Haase for a 7×14 enclosed porch at 525 NE 4th Street.

 

Department Reports were presented. Street Superintendent Buzzell reported he has his new brine tank and he lost turbo in the plow truck. Fire Chief Sturtz reported the SCBA equipment has been ordered and our grant funds were received from FEMA. The new jaws of life equipment are here and was funded by Monsanto and Good Trust. He will be ordering new fire trucks in January with approval from the rural fire board. Police Chief Bailey reported four signposts were vandalized and now repaired. Mick and Rick attended a class on railroad incidents today. Both said it was very informative. New radios are working good for the police department, but the fire departments need programmed.

 

Public Hearing. Mayor Good closed the regular meeting at 7:17 p.m. to open the public hearing for the usage variance request for Daryl Johnson of Johnson & Sons Inc. at 307 E. Division St. The request is for side yard setback of three feet rather than the required five feet. A garage currently sitting on the property is only setback at three feet. Daryl plans to connect the garage to the house which will change the structure requiring the variance. It was also noted that permits are only good for one year. Emily noted he has met the requirements of the usage variance request. He will need to locate the property pins for the building permit to be approved.

 

Mayor Good closed the public hearing and entered back into regular session at 7:19 p.m.

 

Motion by Anderson, second by Liston to approve the usage variance request for Johnson and Sons Inc., Daryl Johnson at 307 E. Division.
