Spencer Council Preview

Spencer Council Preview

Spencer, IA (KICD)–The Spencer City Council will meet in regular session tonight.
The evening will open with a public hearing on the renewal of a 25-year natural gas franchise agreement with Black Hills Energy. The current Gas Franchise with them is set to expire in August of this year. Staff has met with Black Hills Energy to review the proposed ordinance and after a few minor tweaks feel the agreement serves the Citizens of Spencer well.  The first reading of the ordinance also takes place tonight.
An amendment to the zoning code pertaining to parking requirements for dwelling units in the Central Business Zoning District is up for a vote.  Currently the ordinance requires off-street parking requirements for dwelling units exceeding 4 units.  That requirement has created a difficult challenge creating more dwelling units.  This matter was previously sent to the Main Street Organization for their input.  The City has since received a letter from Main Street stating that they feel that the parking requirements for dwelling units over 4 units are no longer needed.
The first filing of an ordinance on tree planting in the Public Right-of-Way as well as Tree Trimmers Licenses requirements is also on the docket.
Tonight’s meeting starts at 6:30 in the Council Chambers of Spencer City Hall.
