Village Council Holds Meeting Tuesday
The Pinehurst Village Council will hold its regular work session Tuesday, Oct. 24, at 9 a.m., in the Conference Room in the Village Hall, followed by the regular monthly business meeting at 1 p.m. in the Assembly Hall.
The morning work session will include an update on a proposed recreation center already listed as a future capital improvement item in the council's long-range plan. Parks and Recreation Director Mark Wagner said last week that he plans to report to council the reasons why a center is being recommended. Cost estimates and other details are to be provided also.
Results of a survey presented to the council in September show that the public supports recreation programs in the village.
The afternoon business meeting includes a public hearing on a proposed amendment to the Pinehurst Development Ordi-nance governing exterior wall finishes or exterior finishes for new residences built in the R-10, R-15, and R-20 zoning districts. The amendment would limit the number of exterior facade materials (excluding the foundation) to three types.
The council is expected to vote on an ordinance amendment permitting a Farmer's Market mobile vehicle to sell fresh fruits and vegetables in the parking lot of the FirstHealth Center for Health and Fitness. The council is expected to vote on adopting a flood damage prevention ordinance amendment, incorporating the requirements affecting property in flood plains and flood ways into the Pinehurst Development Ordinance.
The council is also expected to consider adopting a resolution assessing property owners in the Municipal Service District for $261,000 to cover the cost of repairs to the earthen dam on Pond 1. The amount will be based on the size of each lot. Property owners will have 15 years to repay the assessment, at no interest.
The village agreed to split the repair costs with the 22 property owners in the service district. The repairs cost about $522,000.
A 3 percent discount will apply if the property owner pays the entire assessment at once. The village will not charge any interest on the assessments, but future interest charged would be capped at 8 percent, according to the resolution.
A public-comment period is held at the end of the agenda at both meetings.
