Council agenda includes public hearings

By Messenger Staff | Published Saturday, April 6, 2013

When it meets Monday evening, the Decatur City Council will hold public hearings on two requests that were approved by the Planning & Zoning Commission last week.

After opening the 6 p.m. meeting and issuing proclamations for National Library Week, National Public Health Week and National Child Abuse Prevention Month, the council will approve minutes and consider bills and invoices for March.

Public hearings are set on the request of James and Nancy Rosendahl for a special use permit to put in a private club at Sean’s Mesquite Barbecue on U.S. 287, and on David Fuller’s re-plat request on 1.7 acres in the South Decatur Addition, north of W. Collins St., south of W. Carpenter St. and east of 707 S. Perrin St.

The P&Z recommended approval on both items (see story, page 10A).

Also on the agenda are:

  • a request for a variance from the Decatur Public Library to install a commercial electronic variable message sign (CEVMS) on top of its main monument sign;
  • a request from the Decatur Police Department for $50,000 to purchase video/computer units for seven police vehicles; and
  • a proposed interlocal agreement with the city of Fort Worth to participate in the Environmental Collection Center household hazardous waste program, determine fees to be charged and authorize City Manager Brett Shannon to execute the agreement.

The council meets at City Hall, 201 East Walnut.
