Emotional Support Animal Request Item To Be Brought Forward During Wayne City Council Meeting

WAYNE – Councilmembers in Wayne will take part in their regularly scheduled meeting Tuesday evening from City Hall.

Inside the council chambers, the meeting will start at 5:30 p.m. and early on take action on a request to keep a rabbit inside city limits for the purposes of being an “Emotional Support Animal” in a dorm on the Wayne State College campus.

Paul Lindner is also making a request to extend his sidewalk into the city terrace/right-of-way at 601 Westwood Road. An evergreen tree has grown over the existing sidewalk and the owner would like to relocate the sidewalk around the tree instead of trimming or removing the tree.

There was an amendment to the regular agenda on Monday as Mark Meyer with Milo Meyer Construction, Inc. has been hired to move a storage building at 212 Windom Street owned by Diana and Dave Zach. Meyer is requesting council to waive the section in the code that requires a certified engineer’s statement that the movement of the structure will in no way have an adverse effect upon any road surface or bridge on or along the proposed route within the city jurisdiction. Meyer will be in attendance at the meeting to answer any questions.

American Broadband will be on the agenda for a pair of  items. The group is seeking approval for an initial community-wide technology over-build agreement as well as the pole use agreement with the City of Wayne.

Councilmembers will also look to address a certificate of extended warranty period for corrective action on the 2019 Nebraska Street Improvement Project. Unacceptable work includes seeding, pavement cracking and storm sewer manhole adjustment.

Tuesday evening’s regularly scheduled meeting will conclude with an ordinance looking to approve an amendment to the contract with Big Rivers Electric Corporation (BREC), action on the “Consent to Proposed Amendment” and the waiver of rights under Section 3.15 for purpose of the proposed amendment with BREC and a discussion and update on the Chicago Street Storm Sewer and Paving.
