Sheldon Council Hears Report on Street Scape–No Discussion

Date posted - January 5, 2012

The Sheldon City Council held a quite brief meeting for their first session of the new year Wednesday mostly taking care of routine ‘first of the year’ business.

This included appointments of city council members to various boards and commissions. Mayor Meendering named Dave Popkes as Mayor Pro Tem and also assigned him to the Airport Commission, Cable TV, and Museum Board. Duane Seehusen was named to represent the council on the Board of Adjustment, Housing Review Board and Recreational Trails committee. Greg Geels was named to the Cemetary Board and SCDC Board. Ron Rensink was assigned to the Library Board and the Planning and Zoning Commission. Brad Hindt will represent the Council on the SCDC Board and Park Board.

Heidi Brown submitted a report on the Street Scape project. She mentioned that the City had agreed to pay for the design and infrastructure costs. She said the committee has continued to meet in order to address budget suggestions and bond constraints for the enhancement portion of the project. But, before presenting a formal recommendation, the committee has decided to investigate the possibility of including the renovation of the former Pucci’s property. Her hope is that she will be able to present the committee’s recommendation in the near future.

The council also set February 15th at 4:30 as the date and time for a public hearing on the sidewalk project. City Manager Scott Wynja told the council that repairs have been completed at two locations, 321 Washington Avenue and 520 11th Street. Since these repairs were completed after the council had begun to take formal action there could be some money owed to the City. Therefore, they will remain on the list of properties included for further consideration.
