From the Mount Pleasant City Council Meeting

The Mount Pleasant City Council met in regular session Wednesday night.  The Council did not approve an amendment to the home occupation sign ordinance to allow for increased signage size.  There was a request from a resident to increase the size allowed and both the Council Ordinance Committee and the Planning and Zoning Commission recommended a change to 4 square feet.

Mayor Steve Brimhall was authorized to sign insurance renewal contracts for the city general liability insurance coverage and the airport operator’s liability insurance.

An encroachment permit for the City Hope Foundation was approved.  A building on Lucas Street was gifted to the Foundation and the Foundation would like to replace an old sign that is currently located in the city alley right of way. The alley is not open and is not used.

The Council set January 25 Council meeting at 5:30 pm as the time for public hearing and contract award for the final phase of improvements at the waste water treatment plant. Public hearings and contract awards will also be held during that same meeting for the Aldrin Street and West Henry Street reconstruction projects.
