Jeff Crick and Chris Howrey from Woodbury Central School discussed the details of the Memorandum of Understanding being drawn up between the City and School regarding proposed Meredith Lane that will run through near where their buses currently park and fuel.  They want to ensure that the needs of the bus parking area and drivers are met including fuel tank location, lighting, gravel and grading after the City installs Meredith Lane.  Thompson will work out these details in the MOI that is presented to the school for approval.

Engineer Scott Gernhart updated the council regarding the Meredith Lane project.  He is currently working with the owners of the trailer court at S. 5th Street to secure easement for storm sewer and sewer in the area.

The council discussed 212 S. Pearl Street.  Jason Bush has requested a hearing with the Inspector in response to the Official Notice he received regarding the property.  At this hearing, the Inspector will review and give his determination if the property is or is not a nuisance violation.  Hearing is scheduled for Saturday July 21st at 6pm at Bush’s request.  Bush let the council know that he is having an auction at the property Saturday July 21st at noon to sell items from within the house.

Inspector Christensen was not present to give updates on the June 15th deadlines for nuisances at 211 Jones, 308 N. 2nd, and 523 Main.  The City has been addressing many other nuisances and mowing violations in town by sending letters and/or going to mow properties.  Council did not discuss or take action on zoning changes.

Council discussed the safety in front of 16 S. 1st Street – Motorville.  Children riding their bikes or walking in this area veer near or into traffic along Highway 140 due to business parking in the right-of-way and lack of sidewalk.  Property owners told the council last year that they had plans to install a sidewalk in 2017. Attorney Thompson sent a letter requiring the installation of a sidewalk by July 28 or the City will install one and assess the cost to the property owner.

Attorney Thompson introduced proposed Chapter 58 of City Code addressing abandoned/vacant buildings.  He asked council to review and give suggestions on any changes.  If passed, this ordinance could require owners of abandoned or vacant buildings to register the property with the City, pay a Registration fee, and have an annual property inspection.  Will review and add to future agenda.
