Really? HuhWhy, is it a big loss? My guess he is leaving before his job is consolidated with another position, and he will actually have something to do for eight hours each day. Good grief. What does it take to do that job?

Before you answer that we all know the answer is no. But that's where us collectively are failing and the politicians are laughing all the way to the bank. Its hard to find the honest ones, but believe it or not they exist. But too many of us aren't open minded enough to give credit across the isle. Wake up people!

Oh, I guess since it wasn't mentioned in your comment, 100% of your numbers all voted one particular party too right? I'll assume they all pulled the D handle?

Wow that's the second big vote that one of Moores men were absent. That contact may not have passed otherwise. Well, I guess if Moore voted affirmative so would have Hobrook. At least they get paid for not being there to make the tough decisions and vote.

Only two items on agenda at Plan Commission meeting

At Wednesday night's Plan Commission meeting, only 2 items were on the agenda and both were approved

At Wednesday night's Plan Commission meeting, only 2 items were on the agenda and both were approved.

First on the agenda, Anthony W. Williams requested a Special Permit to use property located at 439 North 3rd Street for vehicle and sales service. In each of the Downtown Districts, a special use permit is required to operate a "vehicle sales or service facility."

A used car lot and service garage has operated under a special use permit since 2005. There are two buildings on the property and Williams plans to demolish one and build a 2,100 sq. ft. building with two wash bays and offices in its place. Motion did carry and the request was approved.

Also, Robert H. Berger, of Berger Properties, LLC, requested a zoning change from M1 (Light Industrial) to D5 (Downtown Industrial) for property located at 220 Oak St. The property is in two zoning districts because it is an el-shaped, double-frontage parcel between Oak and Pine Streets.

Rezoning of the M1 portion of the property to the D5 classification was being sought to allow more flexibility in positioning buildings. The Commission approved the request.

In other business, amendments to the Land Use Plan will be talked about at next month's meeting. Some amendments discussed included sizes of political signs and the definition for backlit signs.

All matters approved by the Plan Commission go to City Council on Monday.
