REMOVAL OF PARKING RESTRICTIONS - LAUPER

There is an Ordinance for parking restrictions on 7th Street North of 15th Avenue on the East side between the hours of six o'clock (6:00) A.M. and eight o'clock (8:00) A.M.  This Ordinance was to expedite the movement of shop traffic at this intersection.  This restriction causes confusion for traffic in the right hand lane as to who can go straight in the right lane or not.

The Police and Engineering Departments have reviewed this restriction and recommend that it be removed and that the right lane South of 15th Avenue be made a right turn only lane.  The Alderman of the Ward is also in concurrence with this recommendation.

RECOMMENDATION:  Have ordinance changed to allow parking at any time on the East side of 7th Street North of 15th Avenue to the Alley and to make the right lane south of 15th Avenue a right turn only lane.

 

A motion was made by Alderman Doose, seconded by Alderman Kelley, to concur with the recommendation and direct City Attorney to draft the necessary Ordinance.  Upon roll call the following voted in favor:  Heiland, Doose, Meredith, Kelley, and Westbrook   Motion

 

3RD SHIFT SEWER PLANT POSITION - PIATT

This item was recently tabled during the Committee of the Whole meeting on August 15, 2005. Alderwoman Heiland, City Staff and Union Representatives met to thoroughly discuss all options previously presented to council.  As a result of these meetings option 6 was agreed upon.  The third shift at the sewer plant will remain a one-man operation; however, City Staff and Union Representatives discussed safety and integrity issues and these issues will be resolved in the near future

Discussion was held regarding safety concerns and how they are being addressed.  Option #6 is to remain satus quo and have this item opened during contract negotiations. 

Alderman Doose questioned why she was not notified as to when the meetings were held.  Discussion was held and it was determined that it was the understanding of Staff that the interested Alderman where to contact Staff if they wanted to participate in the meetings.

Ken Schultz, AFSCME, wanted to clarify that the Union does not feel this position is eliminated.  The Union feels this is a vacant position the City is not filling at this time and this item will be discussed during contract negotiations.

 

A motion was made by Alderman Heiland, seconded by Alderman Kelley, to approve the recommendation of keeping the position to 1 man and have staff continue to work on safety issues.  Upon roll call the following voted in favor:  Heiland, Meredith, Kelley and Westbrook.  Alderman Doose voted against.  Motion Carried 4 – 1.
