- MINUTES      Council Meeting      May 28, 2019

RECOMMENDATION: Approve minutes of May 28, 2019

• ACTION ITEMS

- Ordinance amending Article II of the Code of Ordinances

Amendment to the motor vehicle license section of the town code will result in the elimination of the town decal while still requiring the payment of the annual fee for each vehicle as well as the personal property taxes.

RECOMMENDATION: Waive second reading and adopt ordinance

- Ordinance enacting Code Section 74-79 to prohibit parking over curbs

          This ordinance is necessary to prevent an ongoing issue which is creating      a parking/safety hazard for travel and will allow for a penalty for parking on any      portion of curb as it creates a parking/safety hazard for travel.

          RECOMMENDATION: Waive second reading and adopt ordinance

- Ordinance to amend Section 4-20 (a) R-1 Residential of the Zoning Ordinance

          The State Code was amended in 2015 to include group homes of less than      5 individuals with disabilities in the definition of a residential property. The      attached amendment will bring our code into compliance.

          RECOMMENDATION: Waive second reading and adopt ordinance

- Ordinance to repeal Section 34-71, Article III Mountain View Cemetery from the Code of Ordinances

          During the 2015 revision of the Code of Ordinances, this section was      included by mistake. The Town’s code has a general section regarding cemetery      fees that has been adopted which overrides these old costs.

          RECOMMENDATION: Waive second reading and adopt ordinance

- Appropriation Resolution

          To allow the funds to be included into the FY ‘18/’19 budget for use, it is      necessary to appropriate the funds as listed.

          RECOMMENDATION: Proceed to second reading

          The Town is facilitating the purchase parcel of land from CSX on behalf      of Houff Corporation.  The down payment of $4,000 has been paid to the Town      from Houff Corporation for a deposit on the parcel.

          RECOMMENDATION: Proceed to second reading

- REQUESTS FOR ANNUAL STARS AND STRIPES CELEBRATION

          Clifton Forge Main Street is requesting permission to hold the annual 4th      of July Parade and Stars and Stripes Celebration on Thursday, July 4, 2019 and requesting that streets be blocked from the 400 block of E. Ridgeway St. to the Clifton Forge Fire Department on D Street. The parade will line up at 10:30 and begin at 11 AM. They are also requesting that the part of Jefferson Ave. that extends from the south side of the First Citizen Bank driveway to Main Street be closed during the parade to allow for bleachers for spectators during the events.
