Lennox city council discusses rezoning, drainage, sidewalks and street projects

Lennox City Council met on Monday, Aug, 12.  The councilmen had been told at last month’s meeting that due to the fact that the federal funding for Lewis & Clark Regional Water System (LCRWS) has been at a standstill, they may be facing a capital call to help fund the next phase of the project. Troy Larson, executive director of LCRWS, and Dennis Weeldreyer, the City’s director on the Lewis & Clark board, were present on Monday night to talk to the council. The directors of LCRWS will be meeting on Oct. 24 to vote whether or not to issue a capital call. If they decide to, Lennox’s portion would be $243,027. The council agreed to discuss the matter and talk to Weeldreyer before the vote. (See Lewis & Clark story, upper left.)
A public hearing was held on rezoning a parcel of land from central business to light industrial. The rezoning has been approved by the Planning Commission. Richard Schriever, former Planning Commission, stated that property owner Rob Huber told the Planning Commission that he would be willing to install screening and curb and gutter on Railroad Avenue.
