LeAnn Jevne was present at the meeting to request a limited parking sign to be put up in front of her shop, Mabel Flowers and Gifts, on Main Street. There have been issues with people parking in front of her shop for extended periods of time which is inconvenient for her customers. She suggested a two hour parking sign, a no overnight parking sign, or a customer parking only sign. The council discussed putting up a limited parking sign, but decided to table it until the December meeting to research the matter further.

Warren Vicker was also present at the meeting to dispute the electric bill dating from September 2012 for his apartment.

The council passed a motion to continue to allow SEMCAC to rent the space in the EMS building free of charge. There was also a discussion about continuing with the current cleaning service for the building and it was decided to keep it.

The EDA fund is currently negative due to the recent purchase of Cruiser’s Family Restaurant. A motion was passed to make a transfer from the Nursing Home fund into the EDA fund to bring the account back into the black.

The work has been completed on the Ash Street project and payment is due. The sewer fund is short because of recent engineering expenses so the council approved a motion to take out a micro loan which would be a seven year note with a 2.5 percent interest rate.

The council approved a motion to change the current zoning permit fees from a flat $5 to $25 for a zoni .....
