Wykoff Council tackles repairs


Mon, Nov 16th, 2015
Posted in Wykoff Government

The Wykoff city council met on November 9 at 7 p.m. for a regular meeting, with all members present. No visitors had signed up to address the council, so after approval of the consent agenda items, the council heard committee reports, including a report on the Fire Department stating that there are currently two firefighter openings and four applicants so far.

The council chose to contact ServiceMaster to do the cleaning of the grease build-up at the Community Center. Rocky Vreeman will get an idea of the expected cost, prior to the work being done. Next, the council discussed Ordinance 206, which is to have some minor wording changes made. Clerk Davis said the plan to is rewrite the entire ordinance, rather than having an ordinance and a separate amendment. This had been suggested by the city attorney, Tom Manion. The suggested rewording has been sent to him, but the council hasn’t heard back yet, so no action was taken.

The council then turned to the issue regarding Shooter’s Bar. The business owner, Shari, shared a report she’d gotten from CMS stating that the adjacent building does in fact pose a hazard. The tenant of the adjacent building was present at the meeting, and asked to speak to the council. Members explained that since he wasn’t on the agenda and hadn’t signed up on the “visitors” list, he wouldn’t be allotted significant time to voice his concerns. He briefly summarized his position, adding, “The engineer was misinformed. He can’t make a good judgement if he doesn’t have the information.” Rocky stated that regarding the professional opinion from CMS, “So if you don’t agree with that, you need to hire your own inspector.” Mitch Grabau shared that he felt the issue is not truly the city’s business, and said it should be handled between the two parties involved, and their attorneys if needed. He then added, “But it’s probably up to us to inform him (the property owner) that he needs to fix it.” The council elected to consult with the city attorney about what, if anything, the city should do next. Mayor Williams suggested to the tenant, “If you want to come back next month and talk about this, get on the agenda.”

The council then considered the Pay Request #1 from WHKS for the 2015 Street Reconstruction project, which requests payment of $71,683.84. It was noted that the small remainder would be billed and paid after the sod is laid. The council voted to pay .....
