WAYNE – With a series of four ordinances seeking third and final reading approval, the Wayne City Council will meet for their regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday, March 15.
From the council chambers inside City Hall, the meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. with a street and planning report from Joel Hansen, Street and Planning Director.
Hansen will address the 2021 annual report from the Public Works Department which maintains 34 miles of streets and 84 lane miles. Their five full-time employees combine for 77 years of service as the group also has one part-time worker. Hansen will also go over a list of nine major activities that were included this past year as well as anticipated projects for 2022.
An action request will then be made by Matt Ley from Sanctuary Apartments, LLC to forgive a sewer bill from December 15, 2021 – February 15, 2022 because of a water line break. The bill is $1,795.85 as the water did not go down the sewer which was confirmed by both the plumber and city employees.
Third and final readings will also come in front council for the Future Land Use Map of the comprehensive plan for the City of Wayne; amending the zoning map (Sanctuary Apartments, LLC); annexing real estate lot 1, Logan Valley Industrial (new Dollar General) and directing sale of lot 3, southeast addition from the City of Wayne to R. Perry Construction.
The “Wayne Chicago Street” project received two bids on the project and will be addressed during Tuesday night’s meeting. A recommendation of the project manager, Olsson, is to award the contract to the low bidder, Robert Woehler & Sons Construction, Inc., for $744,327.
Wayne City Council members will then close out their meeting by setting their council retreat day for Tuesday, March 29 at 5:30 p.m. from the Wayne Fire Hall.
