City approves zoning change

Published 12:00 am Tuesday, November 15, 2005

The Montevallo City Council held a public hearing and approved a Planning and Zoning Board recommendation to re-zone 19 acres belonging to Sue Mikul from Agricultural Open to D-I Conventional subdivision on

Monday night.

During the public hearing, no one expressed objections to the change.

The property is located adjacent to and south of Ammersee Lakes Subdivision.

The council also approved a contract with the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office for jail services at a cost of $30.63 per day.

At the request of Councilmember Hollie Cost, the council delayed action until a special meeting can be called on an extension of the Highway 119 sewer line to Hidden Forest and Colonial Oaks Subdivisions.

Cost wanted time to review a contract with Nichols Construction Company for the work at a cost of $471,282.

While the council had previously authorized the city clerk to institute a public records request policy, the council made it official Monday night.

Under the policy, the city will charge 50 cents per page for copies and up to $16 per hour for necessary research for such public document requests.

The hour can be broken into 15-minute units at $4 each.

The council appointed H.G. McGaughy to the Historic Commission to fill the term of Tina Dew who has moved away.

On the Library Board, the council appointed Karen Pendleton to fill the position left by Emily Pendleton and Kathlyn Laythion to fill the position left by Francis Albright.

The council carried over the re-appointment of Jane Clayton to the same board for the next council meeting.

The council also approved the minutes of the Oct. 10 and Oct. 24 regular meetings and the Oct. 27 special meeting
