Wilson, who was appointed to a vacancy representing the 1st District on the city’s west side by the council at their Jan. 9 meeting, took the oath of office from City Clerk/Treasurer Patty Huberty.

Wilson had served on the Park Committee before applying for the vacancy created when former Alderman David Williams resigned last September because he had moved out of the city.

The council approved an ordinance amending the zoning code provisions dealing with the Board of Appeals.

“This is really a cleanup ordinance,” City Attorney Crystal Fieber explained. “A lot of the changes related to bringing the city code into compliance with court rulings,” dealing with variances to city zoning regulations.

Primarily, she added, it has to do with requiring that variances be allowed only if three conditions are met: unnecessary hardship, unique property limitations and no harm to public interests.

“The changes here are going to give Board of Appeals members better tools to work with,” Building Inspector Pete Scheuermann told the council.

The council approved spending $9,938.78 from the city’s contingency fund to pay for brake repairs on the Department of Public Works’ front end loader.

Public Works Director Cathy Austin explained that the brakes failed during plowing after an early January snow storm. She said that the plan was to have the brakes fixed on the truck in the city garage, but that the repair firm had to take the truck to their shop to make the necessary repairs.

Austin said it is expected that the truck will be back in service by this weekend.
