public hearing lasts 4 minutes for lack of comments
November 10, 2008 | MILLVILLE -- The City Council held
a public hearing for two items on the agenda. The public
hearing opened at 8 p.m. and was closed for public input
by 8:04 due to the lack of comments from the public.
The two items discussed were a proposed revision to
the Millville city budget for the fiscal year of 2008-
2009. That was unanimously approved by the city council.
The other item was a new ordinance prohibiting smoking
in the city parks, recreational facilities and near
mass gatherings. That was also unanimously approved
and will take effect immediately.
In other items on the agenda, the council approved
a resolution requiring a deposit for building within
Millville city. Councilman Brian Jensen said, "The intent
is to protect our sidewalks." The deposit will be $2,000
for any building that will require the approval of a
residential building clearance. There will also be a
$200 dollar deposit for anything that is non residential
but still requires a building clearance. The deposit
may be returned upon the inspection of the sidewalks
and the completion of landscaping in the front yard.
The deposit is being issued to help with the cost of
any damage done to the city sidewalks if damage is done
while building. Mayor Mike Johnson said this should
help protect the city. The requirement for a deposit
will take affect immediately.
In two other agenda items, council member Brian Jensen
was approved to move ahead with the study of road impact
fees. He is working on getting different bids from companies.
Also Treasurer Tara Hobbs and Recorder Rose Mary Jones
went over the quarterly financial reports.
