Could We Be Driving a Golf Cart to Work?

Date posted - January 19, 2012

The Sheldon City Council on Wednesday heard reports from department representatives of Sheldon Fire Company, SCAT and EMA.

These reports were followed by updates from Heidi Brown of the Sheldon Marketing Committee and Mark Gaul of the SCDC.

Next on the agenda was a discussion to consider a permanent easement and improvements of the former Puccis site. Much of the discussion centered on who owns the brick ledge attached to the wall of the Katz building. The brick ledge was also part of the east wall of the former Puccis Building.

Al Katz is seeking the city’s help in making improvements at the site. The council agreed, after a lengthy discussion, that they will have the land surveyed. If it is determined that part of the ledge belongs to the city, the city will give $10,000 toward improvements and also deed the brick ledge over to Al Katz. It should be noted that the city manager will seek grants to cover the $10,000 if necessary.

Also on Wednesday’s Sheldon City Council agenda the council voted to asked the city attorney to draft an ordinance allowing the use of golf carts on city streets. ATV’s are currently allowed on city streets with a special license from the city.

Following the golf cart discussion the council went into closed session for the city manager’s evaluation.

We will have more city council news on later newscasts.
