iii. Nuisance Properties – Each property was gone through and a few of them
will be brought to the City Attorney for court sessions.
It was noted that the Code Enforcement Summary report for the last three
months has had an 85% success rate. Congratulations to the Officers!
b. City Administrator Krider reported
i. Updates to fee schedules – These are still getting worked on from several fronts.
We’re looking to get information from some similarly sized municipalities, and
Henry is getting some information from other sources as well.
8. Old Business
a. Review Vacant Properties List – Seems like several of the properties have been sold
lately or will be in the near future.
b. Home Occupation Code Ordinance – Going further on this, we need to check with the
WP Fire Department whether placards need to be placed on houses where special
chemicals will be stored in case of fire. We need to protect our firemen. Also, we need
to figure out how to enforce this as an Ordinance.
c. Fiscal Year 2019 Budget Draft – Still working on this.
9. New Business
a. Review City Maps – Special Use given to either properties or the owners of the properties
should be listed on the City Map. The City Administrator has been doing this and is
also hoping to have the re-zoning done of Farmington Road by the deadline of March
31, 2018 so we can save money by doing it all at once.
b. Proposed Re-zoning on Farmington road of five (5) properties – This is to be sent to the
Planning Commission, and then on to Council as a whole. Question: When is the
Notice being published? Some neighbors have been asking about buffering the noise of
a business next to them and may have an objection at the Public Hearing. Notice should
be in the paper February 13, 2018.
10. No Public Comment was offered.
11. Motion to Adjourn was made by Alderperson Siewert at 7:18 p.m. and seconded by Alderperson
Goranson. Motion carried.
The next regular meeting of the Land Use Committee is Wednesday, March 7, 2018 at 6:30 p.m.
