The Mayor declared a quorum present. There were no others present when the meeting opened.
Therefore, there were no comments from the audience.
The Mayor presented a request for a post-frame building at 115 Texas. This request was tabled at the May 10, 2016 meeting because we need clarification on setbacks. Alderman Curt Oetjen talked to the property owner about this variance. Mr. Allen reduced the size of the building to comply with the lot coverage requirements and relocated the structure so that it is 7’ off the property lines. This is a 50’ lot.
Motion 1: Oetjen moved and Houseworth seconded to approve the post frame construction on property at 115 Texas Avenue with changes specified above. A roll call vote was taken, and all present voted yea. The Mayor declared the motion carried. [Alderman Brinkley asked if the neighbors were notified and he was told that neighbors would be notified only in the case of a variance. Alderman Oetjen also indicated that this structure will replace a garage that was demolished].
Motion 2: Oetjen moved and Helfrich seconded to adjourn. All present voted yea and the Mayor dismissed the meeting at 5:34 p.m.
