Posted in Government

The Wykoff City Council held its regular monthly meeting on Monday, March 8, 2010, at 6:30 pm in the Municipal Building with the following members present: Tim Grabau, Mike Holzer, Michele Hitchcock, Betty Niemeyer, Jeremy Comstock, Cheryl Davis, Al Williams. Absent: None

Mayor Mike Holzer called the meeting to order at 6:35 p.m. The following items were added to the agenda: J.Zoning; K. Flags; L. Sewer meeting.

Tim Grabau made a motion to approve the minutes from the February meeting. Betty Niemeyer seconded the motion and it carried unanimously.

Jeremy Comstock made a motion to approve the bills. Tim Grabau seconded the motion and it carried unanimously.

Tim Grabau made a motion to approve the Treasurer's Report. Betty Niemeyer seconded the motion and it carried unanimously.

VISITORS: Tim Zwart was present to discuss the re-zoning of the Pat Doering property. He wondered why it was at the county level already and nothing has been done at the city level. Mike received a phone call from Chris Graves. About a year and a half ago the county zoning removed the option of informing the city of permit applications and getting the city's approval before issuing the permit. This procedure was changed to expedite the issuance of permits. The county does want Wykoff to adopt their own zoning.

According to the county's new procedures, and after talking to the county attorney, the legal way to do these re-zonings (because we are using county zoning), is to go through the county. The county will hold the hearing for the re-zoning application for the Pat Jones property from residential to commercial. Public hearing for this issue is scheduled for March 25th, 7:00pm at the county courthouse.

Mike also noted that in order for us to have our own zoning, we need four or five people to serve on a zoning board or we can't have our own zoning.

Sally Affeldt, with the Wykoff Historical Society, informed the council that they have received a letter from Mike Bue, president of Security State Bank, that they have been awarded grant money from the Webster Fischer Foundation. The grant was submitted by the deadline of November 30th. Carolyn jumped the gun on the application. They had never approached the city to see if they would match the funds received from Webster Fischer Foundation. Council will consider paying half of the balance remaining after the grant. Betty noted that in the future, council needs to know .....
