Council Discusses Parks, New Housing Developers
Posted: 19 June, 2013
WAYNE (KTCH/KCTY) - The Wayne City Council met once again for their regular meeting Tuesday evening. One of the first important items up for discussion was to set closing hours for many of the public parks in town.
The Wayne PD has had some issues with individuals loitering at the parks at late hours and participating in illegal activities. The council voted 5-0 to approve this and they will discuss it further at the next meeting.
The council then voted to adopt the City Administrator’s employment agreement for the next year. The current administrator, Lowell Johnson, received a 2% raise and was very appreciative to the council.
Kaki Ley then brought to the board an action to demand multi-unit builders in the city of Wayne to show building proposals to the board before starting construction. Many of the multi dwelling units have been described by the board as “boxes on top of boxes that wreck the visual integrity of the neighborhoods that they are being built in.” The board made a point that they will do everything they can to change this in the future.
To end the meeting, the City Council voted to sell of the city’s extra supply of bricks to citizens of Wayne County for $1.00 a brick. The city is going to make approximately 20,000 bricks available for non-commercial purchase immediately.
