While the Walmart public hearing was the main attraction of Monday night’s City Council meeting, a number of other items were up for vote.
Here’s what the council decided on those items:
- Two of the council’s first bills dealt with getting needed repairs done to city buildings. The Council unanimously approved Bill 8904, which will transfer $4,700 from the Park Improvement Fund to the building maintenance account for electrical repairs at the James J. Eagan Center. The council also approved Bill 8905, which transfers $800 from the general fund to building maintenance for police department electrical repairs.
- The council gave an OK to two special use permit transfers for the operation of cell phone towers to Crown Castle Towers. Bill 8906 deals with the transfer from St. Charles Tower, and Bill 8907 deals with a transfer from Verizon Wireless.
- After its first reading, the Council approved Bill 8908 to become ordinance 7962. The ordinance allows for the replacement of an exterior sign on St. Louis Bread Company. During the public hearing, petitioner Jon Krone said that it would complement the interior renovation of the Florissant eatery.
- The council approved Bill 8909, which provides funding of more than $6,500 for the Children’s Arts Programs at Valley of Flowers. The funding will be reimbursed through a grant, Ward 1 Councilman Tim Lee said.
