Coun­cil Holds Spe­cial Meet­ing

McDonald County Press - - FRONT PAGE - Megan Davis

South­west City’s board of al­der­men gathered for a spe­cial meet­ing on Mon­day, Aug. 6, to dis­cuss two pro­posed or­di­nances.

The first, Or­di­nance No. 603, au­tho­rizes the sale of real city prop­erty within the city lim­its. It also re­quires the city coun­cil to ac­cept and ap­prove one bid per prop­erty lo­ca­tion. The mayor and city clerk are au­tho­rized and di­rected to im­ple­ment all forms and sig­na­tures re­quired for the trans­fer of prop­erty.

The sec­ond, Or­di­nance No. 604, es­tab­lishes a new fee sched­ule for the is­suance of build­ing per­mits in the city. It pro­hibits any build­ing, re­mod­el­ing, dig­ging or other ex­ca­vat­ing with­out first ob­tain­ing a build­ing per­mit from a des­ig­nated of­fi­cial. It also re­quires that ap­pro­pri­ate fees be paid be­fore a per­mit is is­sued.

Each per­mit fee cov­ers the cost of five in­spec­tions — from the foot­ing be­fore pours to the fi­nal in­spec­tion. There will be an ad­di­tional cost for any re-in­spec­tions that may oc­cur.

The pro­posed per­mit fee sched­ule cov­ers fences, decks, at­tached and de­tached garages, and de­mo­li­tions, among other things.

Coun­cil mem­bers voted to ap­prove and in­state both or­di­nances.
