Mayor Phelps said people have to realize there is good reason for them to get permits. If a property owner is doing a project that is going to change the footprint of their property -- they need a permit. Two of the main reasons for thisois to make sure that people do not build struc- tures over utilities, this can create serious safety issues. Another reason is there are setback reqqirements that need to be m&. For instance you can not build anything within so many feet of your property line. Although some of the" setback issues can be amended with a variance, if a property owner receives permission with a majority of other owners in the area. Another reason for this is to keep the community looking as neat and orderly as possible. "We don't want people to drag in old dilapi- dated buildings into town," Phelps said. Police Chief Alan Wahl asked the council for per- mission to raise the fee for officers to work at wedding dances and other events where liquor is served. The current fee is $75.00. He would like it raised to $100.00 per night. Wahl says our rate would still be lOW compared to other towns in the area. With two members of council missing, Phelps said he would like to table the request until the full council was there to approve it. Jim Patterson made a formal .request to have a parcel ofhis land detached from the city. Patterson had already prepared the neces- sary paper work to make the change. The council approved Patterson's request to detach the prop- erty. The council passed a joint powers agreement for anything needed with Cottonwood County. Currently the city has a joint powers agreement for maintaining First Avenue for plowing in the winter. The blanket joint powers agreement will cover things like seal coating, which saves the city money. The council passed the joint powers agreement. Last month Luke Ewald representative from DesMoines Valley Health and Human Services requested the city to desig- nate the city park as a tobacco free place. The council thought it would be hard to enforce however they thought it would be a good idea, and adopted a policy declaring the city parks as tobacco free. Ewald has posted signs in the park declaring it as Tobacco Free. The EDA requested the council to pass a resolution to send to the county ask- ing for temporary tax abate- ment on the former Recipe building until it is sold.
