City Council held a public hearing during the Sept. 11 meeting for the zoning/rezoning of three parcels.
The first two parcels were not zoned when first annexed into the city in 2009. Outlot 915, where the water tower property on Dawsett Avenue is located, was zoned as R-1C (Historic Residential Single-Family District). Outlot 916, which contains a portion of the Waste Water Treatment Plant property, was zoned as R-1B (Single-Family Residential District).
The third parcel, Outlot 917, is where the Keep It Classy car wash is located. The parcel will be rezoned from Rural Estate to General Commercial. In each case, the zoning will match the surrounding area of those parcels.
In meeting business, council passed Ord. 2018-56 as a first reading to implement those zoning changes.
Ord. 2018-57 corrected a fund account number in a previous ordinance. Council passed this as a final reading.
Ord. 2018-58 amended section 945.01 of the codified ordinances to clarify that gas boat motors are not allowed on any city reservoir. Regulations from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources currently prohibit gas motors, but local ordinances did not align with those regulations. The ordinance was passed as a first reading.
Ord. 2018-59 authorized the purchase of a replacement transit van to replace a vehicle used by the Meter Department. The replacement was budgeted for 2019, but the existing vehicle has become too unreliable to continue making repairs. Council passed this as a final reading.
