City Approves Conditional Use for Reigning Cats & Dogs
Wednesday, August 31, 2011 • Posted August 31, 2011

During their August 22nd meeting, the City Commission acted upon a request by local business, Reigning Cats & Dogs, to change their temporary Conditional Use Permit to a permanent permit.The business had been granted a temporary permit when it first applied just over a year ago. At that time, the Commission decided to wait for a year and review their application. During that period, they have acquired numerous letters of recommendation and support attesting to their qualification for a long-term extension of the Conditional Use Permit. The motion to approve passed unanimously.The Commission also considered the use of Land/Sea containers by residents inside the City. During discussion, the Commission agreed that, even though only four instances of the large containers had been noted, comments from residents indicated a need to address the issue. By a unanimous vote, the Commission decided to ban the long-term use of the containers, and to require the painting of the containers to blend into their surroundings more aesthetically.The City voted unanimously to purchase electronic water meters to aid in the reading and monitoring of resident water use. The new meters are discussed at length in this week's "City Corner" column.The plat for a subdivision at the south-western corner of Ritter and Lemburg Streets was approved. The plat shows five lots in the subdivision, named in documents as the G and J Evans Ranch.The next regular meeting of the City Commission will be May 12th.
