Public Hearing, Amending Rental Fees To Highlight City Council Meeting

WAYNE – Wayne City Council will open their regularly scheduled meeting Tuesday evening from the City Hall.

Councilmembers will start with a public hearing pertaining to Wayne Community Development Block Grant Loan to Greta Smith for “The Flower Cellar”. The 221 N. Main Street location was formerly Flowers & Wine as Smith is applying for CDBG Funds that will be sub-granted to Northeast Economic Development, Inc.

The Flower Cellar will continue the tradition of offering unique and high quality fresh flowers, wine, gifts and services that have been provided for the last 13 years by Flowers & Wine. Total project costs are estimated at $71,000 for equipment, inventory, supplies and a delivery vehicle. The project will also create two jobs and more information will be provided during the meeting.

Another presentation will hit the topic on “Diesel Engine Generator Addition”. In 2016, the city of Wayne retained a managing consultant as it transitioned away from NPPD as its sole energy provider. Bernie Cevera will discuss his findings and suggest the next steps with this process.

The Wayne City Council will then amend rental agreements for the City Auditorium and/or north meeting room and the fire hall. City Attorney and staff will have had discussion on when a Special Designated License (SDL) for alcohol is required. Councilmembers would like to amend the rental agreement to require a SDL if alcohol will be on the premises, either for sale or given away for free.
