Council approves Chautauqua Days plans

(Continued)

City Attorney Jack Kiley told the council that the owner of the decaying Lidster Hotel finally visited the site over the weekend.

“He now understands that it is worse than he thought it was,” Kiley said. Kiley added that a court date for action to condemn the building is set for April 19.

In other business the council approved:

- the Library fiscal year 2014-2015 budget, which showed a little more than $6,000 increase for the year.

- setting the $300 fee for non-compliant businesses who do not attain the license for brush disposal in the city waste facility.

- the transfer of Brent Shull from the water department to the cemetery department effective April 10.

- the mutual ILEAS mutual aid agreement renewal. This agreement sends officers to other locations in times of emergency, such as tornadoes or other disasters.

- having the Zoning and Planning commission review updated zoning code definitions.

In new business commissioner Thom Schafer reminds residents that, according to city code, there is an ordinance against burning refuse within the city limits.

“You can only burn what grows on your property,” Tallman added.

Schafer also reminds residents that the boulevards are not for signs. “On private property, no problem. Just not on the boulevards,” Schafer said.
