Hilltop Estates, second additional approval


Fri, Oct 2nd, 2009
Posted in Government

By Karen Reisner

The Chatfield City Council unanimously gave their approval to the development agreement and the final plat for the Hilltop Estates, Second Addition at their September 28 meeting. The public hearing had been continued from their last meeting on September 14 and again, there was no comment from the public.

City Clerk Joel Young assured the council that the reasons for the continuance had all been resolved. The development agreement has been signed. All the other conditions set in the primary plat have been satisfied, including a grading plan and drainage reports - with the exception of drainage issues related to future development of Wisdom Lane. Approval of the final plat was recommended by the city engineer, David Morrill of McGhie and Betts, Inc. with two conditions. The development of Wisdom Lane in the future will require attention to remaining draining issues. The final plat approval included the Wisdom Lane condition.

As a second condition recommended by the city engineer, the city approved the acceptance of the donation of the property labeled Outlot B from Amerett L. Donahoe. The property has a storm water retention structure that treats water from a large area of land. The water comes from an area larger than a small neighborhood making it reasonable to be the responsibility of the city as a public facility.

Public Nuisance

A public hearing was held with no comment from the public on the public nuisance at 709 Grand Street SE. The owner had been notified on September 7 to bring the property into compliance by cutting the long grass and weeds. On September 14, a report of the public nuisance was made to the city council. On September 15, the property owner was again notified. The council voted to authorize the city to cut the grass and abate the nuisance on October 2, if not yet done by the owner. Costs of abatement completed by the city will be assessed to the property.

Other Business In Brief

• The council authorized the publication of Ordinance 389 which relates to the use of outdoor solid fuel burners within the city in the city's official newspaper. A second consideration was approved forbidding the use of these burners within the city.

• Pay estimate number six, the final payment, in the amount of $17,725.27 for the Hillside Drive project to contractor Jech Excavating was approved.
