City to update strategic land use plan


November 18, 2018

The Alva City Council will begin the task of updating the city’s strategic land use plan at their Monday meeting. The council will discuss and vote on appointing a working committee of ten people update. The need for this update became apparent when council members voted down a request for a variance in the zoning of some property.

The council will meet at 6:30 p.m. Monday in the council chambers of City Hall.

Council members will also discuss and vote on the Planning Commission’s request to review all permit applications with exceptions beginning Jan. 1.

Earlier the council approved increasing the cemetery board from three to five members. Monday night, they will vote on adding Dr. James Bell and Jesse Kline to that board.

There will also be a vote on approving a resolution for an interlocal cooperative agreement with Circuit Engineering District (CED) #8.

In addition, the council will hear reports from the mayor, city business manager, and several city boards and commissions. Citizens and council members will have a chance to make remarks or inquiries at the end of the meeting.

The Alva Utility Authority, consisting of council members and presided over by the mayor, will meet following the council adjournment. There will be discussion and a vote to authorize bidding of construction for a new chlorination system for the city’s water system.

Trustees will vote on the purchase of 6,500 linear feet of 16-inch PVC water pipe, four 16-inch butterfly valves, boxes and 16-inch interconnections from Pioneer Supply for $168,429. These are for replacement of a water transmission line.

Other votes will be on a change order reducing the Wynn Construction contract by $2,304.60 on the Young Street Tank Farm project and a change order increasing the construction contract with Cobalt Construction by $4,200 for sodding the east slope adjacent to the sewer main.

The Alva Economic Development Authority meeting that follows only has minutes and claims on the agenda.
