Mabel City Council alters zoning permit fees

Fri, Nov 15th, 2013
Posted in Mabel Government

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. Due to a carbon monoxide leak in the apartment, he vacated it in September 2012 and has not lived it in since. The council reviewed his request, but denied it as the dispute needs to be settled by Vicker and his landlord.

The minutes from the October 9, 2013 meeting were reviewed and approved.

The monthly bills were reviewed and approved for payment.

Mabel City Maintenance Director Robert Miereau updated the council on the Cherrywood Drive improvements. The project is still moving along and he will continue to keep the council advised on the progress made each month.

A motion was passed to renew the CEDA 2014 contract upon recommendation of the EDA.

City Clerk Karen Larson informed the council that the SEMCAC offices had recently moved back into the EMS building. During the firefighters’ renovation of the building, SEMCAC had to temporarily move its office to a different building. 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 .....
