Today's word on journalism

Monday, April 24, 2006

Dueling masters on words:

"He has never been known to use a word that might send a reader to the dictionary."

--William Faulkner, writer (1897-1962), on Ernest Hemingway, writer (1899-1961)

"Poor Faulkner. Does he really think big emotions come from big words?"

--Ernest Hemingway, writer (1899-1961), on William Faulkner, writer (1897-1962)

Millville alters rules for accessory buildings

By Shauna Smith

March 19, 2006 | MILLVILLE -- A public hearing was held at Thursday night's City Council meeting and was only open for 3 minutes. There were 10 citizens in attendance and none had any comments.

The hearing was to receive public input on a proposed revision to a section of Millville City Code regarding the size of accessory buildings that would require a permit. The minimum size was at 120 square feet and the approved ordinance will bump it up to 200 square feet.

Also, the council is considering self-inspections to be included in the permitting process of home businesses so the county doesn't have to be involved anymore.

The recommendation was given to the council by the county fire marshal, according to Councilman Brian Jensen.

"It was brought into us as a tool to use because they don't have the man power," said Jensen.

Self-inspections will be required with all applications for business licenses or home occupations. The inspections will be based on the honor system.

No decision was made on the self-inspections. Discussion will be continued in the next City Council meeting and the council will ask the county fire marshal to attend and give input on the change.

In other business, the council approved the expansion of Silicone Plastics Inc., a manufacturer of injection molded plastic fabrications. On conditions of the approval, Silicone Plastics has to acquire land to accommodate 33 parking stalls by Jan. 1, 2008, and get rid of parking on the city right of way. If these requirements are not met, the owners will not be granted a business license for 2008.
