Preston City Council Report: Doherty property split


Fri, Oct 6th, 2006
Posted in Government

The Preston City Council met for less than ten minutes on Monday, October 2. Fifty-one acres owned by Robert and Kelly Doherty was annexed by the city of Preston at the May 15 meeting. At that time it was stated by Doherty that they wanted to build one house soon and have it connected to public utilities. He suggested that a couple more houses may be built on the property in the next couple of years. Doherty requested the annexation so that he could obtain city sewer and water. The property is located south of Hwy 16 and west of US 52 by the golf course.

Council member Steve Knoepke wanted it noted for the record that the property split was a special case as the property already had access to city sewer and water. City Administrator Joe Hoffman agreed that all the infrastructure was in place including driveways. Therefore, the normal processes required for a split could be bypassed. The council approved the split to create the three new parcels, two less than an acre and the third consisting of 2.31 acres.

Other Business

• Erlyn and Sandra Marzolf requested and received permission to remove a badly broken sidewalk in front of their home at 416 Valley Street NW. Hoffman explained that it is the only sidewalk in the immediate area. All costs for removal and turf restoration will be borne by the property owners.

• Joe Hoffman detailed the need for a new dump truck box for a 1991 truck. He described the rusted through supports for the tail gate. Hoffman stated that a rebuilding of the deteriorated box was estimated to cost between $2,000 and $3,000. He stated that a stainless steel used box would cost about $3,500 and a new 'entry-level' box would cost about $5,000. The council approved the purchase of a replacement box not to exceed $5,500.

• Holly Zuck was appointed to the Economic Development Authority.
