WEIMAR — Weimar City Council reviewed city ordinances discussed their public pool project at the Aug. 8 city council meeting.
Council looked at several proposed changes to the plan and design for their new public pool project.
One of the proposed changes was the addition of a seating area to the side of the pool with a wall separating it from the nearby basketball court. The plan also included gates surrounding the area exclusively for pool use.
Council also reviewed the 1,500 square foot splash-pad which runs off six water valves, despite there being several more valves already installed. The additional extra water valves will be installed with the possibility of future growth in mind.
Council voted to amend the contract so that the pool project will not exceed a total cost of $1 million dollars, and for construction to be based on the most recent design presented .
Council voted unanimously to change the current city ordinance regarding peddlers in the city.
This action followed some controversy that arose about the previous ordinance not differentiating between food trucks and peddlers. This topic was brought to the council’s attention in their last council meeting when several local food truck vendors encountered some issues with the permit policy.
One vendor was asked to leave the city property they were selling food on, even though they were invited by a resident to bring the food truck to the property.
The new updates will include changes to the process to gain a permit for sale in the city. A valid license and phone number are now required.
Weimar City Council meetings are the second Thursday of each month at 4 p.m. at City Hall, located at 106 E. Main Street in Weimar.
