Council moves through busy agenda

The Fayetteville City Council took the following action in Thursday night's regular meeting:

A resolution was adopted authorizing execution of an intergovernmental contract to provide bonds for the city's proposed amphitheater and new downtown improvement program.

Main Street Tourism Association bylaws were approved.

Discussion of possible changes to the land use map for the proposed south side master plan was removed from the agenda, due to city staff and the Planning and Zoning Commission having not yet completed their review of the issue.

Beer and wine licenses for Publix at Fayette Pavilion and Kroger at Fayetteville Towne Center, necessitated by changes in management, were approved.

City financial director Lynn Raven was presented with a certificate of achievement for excellence in financial reporting for the fifth consecutive year.

The first reading was conduted on a proposed amendment to the city's occupational tax ordinance. State guidelines permit an increase in fees for insurance companies from $50 to $75 per year because recent census figures saw the city's population rise above 10,000, according to city staff.

A public hearing was conducted on a proposed rezoning of a portion of the Fayette Promenade development, which was recommended for denial by city staff as well as the Planning and Zoning Commission. No one representing the applicant was present at the meeting, and there was no public comment.

A moratorium on sign permits was adopted, to be effective until adoption of a new sign ordinance.

The first reading of that proposed sign ordinance was conducted, and it is expected to be adopted at the next meeting.
