Miner resident given extra time

Wednesday, April 13, 2005

MINER - The Miner Board of Aldermen are giving a resident six months to complete a car restoration project.

The Board arrived at the decision during their regular meeting Tuesday after first accepting the election results and swearing in Collector Ellen Davis, City Marshal Roger Moore, and Board of Alderman members Marlene Anglin, Ward 1, and Justin Medley, Ward 2.

The letter with the petition to the Board for the exception to the city's ordinance prohibiting unlicensed vehicles did not include a time frame for the project and the resident did not attend the meeting.

"I was hoping I could ask her," Medley said regarding the project's time frame.

Donna Thomas, board member, suggested a six-month period.

"If there's a neighbor who objects to that we'd have to reconsider," Medley noted.

In other business Tuesday, the Board approved rezoning seven acres on Matthews Lane from I-1 industrial to R-1 residential and amended city code to allow the manufacture, sale and repair of trailers only in I-1 zoned areas.
