Law & Ordinance - Mr. Moorman
The rental property inspections are progressing. About one-third of the ninety (90) units are completed. Efforts to complete the other sixty (60) units are going to be increased. The program is up for renewal by council at the end of April.
Mr. Welch questioned that perhaps Mr. Weber may need to work additional hours to schedule inspections.
Barbara Gillespie, property owner of 7 Harrison feels more external zoning rules should be implemented; i.e., RVs, boat storage, etc. She brought up a dog issue and Mr. Moorman recommended she contact the SPCA for more help, after calling the Hamilton County Sheriff.
There are also issues with neighbors. Items are encroaching on her property and possibly the sidewalk. Mr. Moorman will pursue this with Mr. Weber.

3-foot snowflakes totaling $1,707.16 and shipping will be approximately $126.00 through UPS. We will not have to send them a deposit after advising them of our situation with Wayne Mfg.
