With all this pre council to order, always good to see everybody again. 00:00:00
After this morning. 00:00:06
It's good to see you again twice in, one in. 00:00:09
One morning. Almost. 00:00:11
Is there a motion we approve pre council agenda? 00:00:13
So the minute second. 00:00:16
Motion second. All in favor. Say aye, aye, and it's approved. All right, Mr. Lavoy. 00:00:18
You're up first today. 00:00:23
It's the same part. 00:00:29
Ohh, that's right. 00:00:33
Same commercial permit that we've had for three weeks. 00:00:35
I'll pay 43 proposal. Norman's been holding this one. Is there a problem with that? 00:00:37
With. 00:00:46
So they're going to add a three slip transient dot boat ramp that's going to be staff only. 00:00:49
I'm gonna play some floating boat. 00:00:54
Floating walkways. 00:00:57
Or over some deteriorating concrete and some that are prone to fluid, they can move their fueling station out onto a pier. 00:00:58
Nine. We cut it back to 9 rental slips. 00:01:07
You did? 00:01:10
And a boat returned. 00:01:11
Dot. That's what it looks like now. 00:01:13
And that's what it looked like. 00:01:16
When everything's put in. 00:01:18
And that will show when the Reds worst guests next to Mr. Lights. He's where we took a boat slip off. Give him room for his 00:01:23
period. 00:01:26
Where? Where is it that the people were complaining about? They couldn't swim? 00:01:29
Seen 236. 00:01:35
Is Miss Miss Brown's House? 00:01:38
Are there not already boats going through there? They are, but it's no ways on those. 00:01:42
Circles or no white zones to her house. It's 265 foot of no weight going in there. So what will this change for her? 00:01:46
Nothing. 00:01:55
OK, because it's already in no way something that's correct. There's there's seven, no weight idle speed, only boys in that. 00:01:55
Salute. 00:02:02
Interesting. 00:02:03
You go and address that tonight. 00:02:04
Yes, Sir. OK. 00:02:06
OK. The other thing, James, I was going to tell you is Stan. 00:02:09
I I haven't forwarded this to y'all yet, but Stacker sent me the the traffic study that was done up there on that road. 00:02:13
I've got a copy of that, and then what? 00:02:20
Stan's got the county looking at that road. 00:02:23
But what stands comment to me was he would be willing to. 00:02:26
Make that a one way Rd. if that's. 00:02:30
What if 90% of all the residents, everybody around there would say this is kind of what we want, So I'm going to relay that to Mr. 00:02:33
Miles too, this afternoon before tonight. 00:02:37
But I don't see a reason why we don't vote on this tonight. 00:02:42
And I appreciate you. Yes Sir, your work on this and the extra stuff done. 00:02:48
OK. 00:02:52
Thank you. Thank you, James. 00:02:53
All right. Barry or Virgil? 00:02:56
Barry. 00:02:59
This is for 1500 McFarland. 00:03:08
Good. 00:03:11
What a pretty place. 00:03:12
It looks a little bit better than the. 00:03:15
Ohh wow. 00:03:17
It does look bad. You prepared all the exterior facade. 00:03:20
He's got windows coming. 00:03:24
But they're not going to be here for 90 days. 00:03:26
If we table him out for 90 days, then he comes back in. 00:03:30
We have to type them again to get it get the windows installed. 00:03:33
So we we're going to recommend if we go 120, give them time, get the windows here and get them installed. 00:03:37
Mr. Boswell wants to take you from all in the inspections from that point. 00:03:44
Take it out of condemnations. What's he going to do? 00:03:49
Have the idea? 00:03:51
Is that about right, that 90, I mean as far as getting that type of product in? 00:03:53
That long these days, Dave Standards probably. So it takes a lot because I don't know Brian Gurney seeing here. 00:03:58
Or Brendan, you were in that meeting, we're talking about the. 00:04:06
Some lighting. 00:04:10
In a project in Alberta, and and. 00:04:13
Talked about how you know we can, the money's there, but. 00:04:16
How big is 120 days or so before we get the poles? Yeah, six months. So trying to figure a way to go ahead and order them now 00:04:19
instead. 00:04:24
It's it's not uncommon for one to hold yet because most of the other special make. 00:04:29
Especially in this situation where the one that when the holes are already there. 00:04:35
They have to make the windows to fit the hole. 00:04:39
Gotcha. That looks a lot better. 00:04:44
That's going to be our recommendation for this. 00:04:47
Again, it's what, 120? 00:04:50
OK. 00:04:52
I think 90 is going to be cutting too close. 00:04:54
Whose district is that in? 00:04:57
Mine. 00:04:58
Now do you think that? 00:05:01
The property owner or the contractor needs to be here to not get the 1:20. 00:05:03
Do you y'all want him here tonight? The contractors got? 00:05:09
Previous engagement. 00:05:13
And Mr. White. 00:05:14
I doubt he'd show up. I don't. I don't have a problem. He'll show up. 00:05:16
If we need it. 00:05:21
Well, that well under these circumstances. 00:05:23
It's it's really not necessary because he can't tell us anymore than we already know. 00:05:26
I'm ******* first. 00:05:34
That all you had to do. OK. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. 00:05:36
Ohh. 00:05:42
Ground rod. 00:05:43
Yeah. 00:05:45
Yes, Sir. 00:05:45
Memorize your table six months ago. 00:05:47
Land involves the owner. He's having some trouble with not getting some of his employees license. 00:05:50
And we had a meeting at TP day before that February 28th meeting. 00:05:56
Involved Chief Blankley and Howard Davidson, the young owner who's he's very young, he's Armador, got his mother and heavily 00:06:01
involved in the business. 00:06:05
And you tabled it six months to see if they would have no further trouble at the end of that time. If they had no further trouble 00:06:09
and were are doing right, then y'all would withdraw it. 00:06:13
And there has been no trouble. I'll check with. 00:06:18
Howard, yesterday and things are going well and no further trouble, so we would recommend that it be withdrawn. 00:06:21
Those the golf carts, The golf cart, LSD, taxi cabs? How many do they offer? 00:06:27
I don't know how many he has. It's not a it's a small number. 00:06:32
Between 1:00 and 3:00 on him. 00:06:36
He doesn't have that grocery cart. 00:06:38
OK, alright. Any questions? Thank you. 00:06:45
Have you seen the guy that motorized wheelchair pulling a cart? 00:06:50
Going down. 00:06:54
Three times. 00:06:58
Yeah. 00:07:01
Handicap. 00:07:03
Yeah. 00:07:05
Watermelon furniture. What about the grocery cart? 00:07:07
Alright, so we have ponds, Yeah. Praying my kids don't. We've got. 00:07:13
One public hearing for you guys tonight, It's a rezoning. 00:07:18
For Beaker Property Group at 6615 Highway 69 S. 00:07:21
They're rezoning from R1 to BN. They're also annexing into the city, which will be introduced and. 00:07:26
Could be adopted tonight as well. 00:07:30
It's not harder. Ready. 00:07:33
That's a different one. 00:07:36
Ohh yeah yeah. So this one is down 69 S behind kind of where crew lounge is and. 00:07:37
That area. 00:07:44
It's just a vacant piece right now outside of the city, but they are requesting to annex in the city. When they do annex into the 00:07:47
city, they. 00:07:50
Come in as R1, so there also are requesting to rezone to BN which. 00:07:54
Is that blue as well in this map. So it's OK we're in that same on the rezoning before we vote on the annex and so it's we we do 00:07:58
the pre zoning language so that if. 00:08:03
You do deny the rezoning. They're likely not going to want to annex into the city at that point. 00:08:09
Harbor Rd. 00:08:16
Uh. 00:08:18
I'm not I don't know about this one is yes, it it would be that similar concept of I can actually show you here. 00:08:19
The. 00:08:26
Kind of office warehouse style. 00:08:28
Is that what you're referring to? 00:08:30
We can. We can talk further if. 00:08:33
Ohh, they're not putting arms. 00:08:35
Ohh, no no no no ohh. 00:08:37
So what are we actually voting on the moment? So you are voting on the rezoning. So they are rezoning from R1 to BN and then the 00:08:40
annexation is also coming up for introduction, but that by unanimous consent can be adopted tonight as well. 00:08:46
So those two items would be in front of you tonight? 00:08:55
It is. 00:08:58
Will this be the first opportunity? 00:09:00
For anybody with any objections to that, to air those the they went through Planning Commission as well and there were no, there 00:09:03
was no. 00:09:06
Here. 00:09:12
Sorry, as did that Marina thing. But that's that's true. Yeah, but this has been. 00:09:13
We set the public hearing for a while now, and it's been. 00:09:19
We have not had any issues whatsoever. 00:09:22
Come up. 00:09:25
So. 00:09:26
There any questions for that? 00:09:29
And in that case, but as far as the Marina thing, is that coming back today? 00:09:31
Right. 00:09:37
Yeah. 00:09:40
Should be. 00:09:42
Unless something else, Thank you. 00:09:44
You never know about it. 00:09:48

Will follow sequentially throughout the week. Next week we'll also be our last town hall series. 00:10:03
Of the summer and fall, so it's gonna be in in the Greater Alberta area this year. 00:10:10
Just I heard this thing go. You just annexed across 15. I did. 00:10:16

event and really look forward to being there in your district. Absolutely. And then two, we're wrapping up the school supplies, so 00:11:39
pay your parking ticket with school Supplies Drive. I want to thank Jessica and her team for doing this. What a difference is it 00:11:45
makes for some young people, and you've heard me say now for three weeks in a row. 00:11:51
It's expensive to send your children to school and a lot of families. 00:11:58
In our community, live paycheck to paycheck and it makes it very difficult. 00:12:02
To provide for their children and so this helps fill a gap and it's a great way to you. You have a parking ticket, it's a great 00:12:06
way to pay it and then make a difference back. So please if you got it over to your parking ticket pay it with school supplies, 00:12:11
make a difference and or if you still want to continue to donate. 00:12:17
Just reach out to Tuscaloosa 311. They'll be happy. OK? That's all I have. Mr. Tanner, that sounds great. We will be requesting an 00:12:23

what you feel like saying. So we have Mr. Bob Annis whose term expires on this Friday the 1st. 00:12:51

With all this pre council to order, always good to see everybody again. 00:00:00
After this morning. 00:00:06
It's good to see you again twice in, one in. 00:00:09
One morning. Almost. 00:00:11
Is there a motion we approve pre council agenda? 00:00:13
So the minute second. 00:00:16
Motion second. All in favor. Say aye, aye, and it's approved. All right, Mr. Lavoy. 00:00:18
You're up first today. 00:00:23
It's the same part. 00:00:29
Ohh, that's right. 00:00:33
Same commercial permit that we've had for three weeks. 00:00:35
I'll pay 43 proposal. Norman's been holding this one. Is there a problem with that? 00:00:37
With. 00:00:46
So they're going to add a three slip transient dot boat ramp that's going to be staff only. 00:00:49
I'm gonna play some floating boat. 00:00:54
Floating walkways. 00:00:57
Or over some deteriorating concrete and some that are prone to fluid, they can move their fueling station out onto a pier. 00:00:58
Nine. We cut it back to 9 rental slips. 00:01:07
You did? 00:01:10
And a boat returned. 00:01:11
Dot. That's what it looks like now. 00:01:13
And that's what it looked like. 00:01:16
When everything's put in. 00:01:18
And that will show when the Reds worst guests next to Mr. Lights. He's where we took a boat slip off. Give him room for his 00:01:23
period. 00:01:26
Where? Where is it that the people were complaining about? They couldn't swim? 00:01:29
Seen 236. 00:01:35
Is Miss Miss Brown's House? 00:01:38
Are there not already boats going through there? They are, but it's no ways on those. 00:01:42
Circles or no white zones to her house. It's 265 foot of no weight going in there. So what will this change for her? 00:01:46
Nothing. 00:01:55
OK, because it's already in no way something that's correct. There's there's seven, no weight idle speed, only boys in that. 00:01:55
Salute. 00:02:02
Interesting. 00:02:03
You go and address that tonight. 00:02:04
Yes, Sir. OK. 00:02:06
OK. The other thing, James, I was going to tell you is Stan. 00:02:09
I I haven't forwarded this to y'all yet, but Stacker sent me the the traffic study that was done up there on that road. 00:02:13
I've got a copy of that, and then what? 00:02:20
Stan's got the county looking at that road. 00:02:23
But what stands comment to me was he would be willing to. 00:02:26
Make that a one way Rd. if that's. 00:02:30
What if 90% of all the residents, everybody around there would say this is kind of what we want, So I'm going to relay that to Mr. 00:02:33
Miles too, this afternoon before tonight. 00:02:37
But I don't see a reason why we don't vote on this tonight. 00:02:42
And I appreciate you. Yes Sir, your work on this and the extra stuff done. 00:02:48
OK. 00:02:52
Thank you. Thank you, James. 00:02:53
All right. Barry or Virgil? 00:02:56
Barry. 00:02:59
This is for 1500 McFarland. 00:03:08
Good. 00:03:11
What a pretty place. 00:03:12
It looks a little bit better than the. 00:03:15
Ohh wow. 00:03:17
It does look bad. You prepared all the exterior facade. 00:03:20
He's got windows coming. 00:03:24
But they're not going to be here for 90 days. 00:03:26
If we table him out for 90 days, then he comes back in. 00:03:30
We have to type them again to get it get the windows installed. 00:03:33
So we we're going to recommend if we go 120, give them time, get the windows here and get them installed. 00:03:37
Mr. Boswell wants to take you from all in the inspections from that point. 00:03:44
Take it out of condemnations. What's he going to do? 00:03:49
Have the idea? 00:03:51
Is that about right, that 90, I mean as far as getting that type of product in? 00:03:53
That long these days, Dave Standards probably. So it takes a lot because I don't know Brian Gurney seeing here. 00:03:58
Or Brendan, you were in that meeting, we're talking about the. 00:04:06
Some lighting. 00:04:10
In a project in Alberta, and and. 00:04:13
Talked about how you know we can, the money's there, but. 00:04:16
How big is 120 days or so before we get the poles? Yeah, six months. So trying to figure a way to go ahead and order them now 00:04:19
instead. 00:04:24
It's it's not uncommon for one to hold yet because most of the other special make. 00:04:29
Especially in this situation where the one that when the holes are already there. 00:04:35
They have to make the windows to fit the hole. 00:04:39
Gotcha. That looks a lot better. 00:04:44
That's going to be our recommendation for this. 00:04:47
Again, it's what, 120? 00:04:50
OK. 00:04:52
I think 90 is going to be cutting too close. 00:04:54
Whose district is that in? 00:04:57
Mine. 00:04:58
Now do you think that? 00:05:01
The property owner or the contractor needs to be here to not get the 1:20. 00:05:03
Do you y'all want him here tonight? The contractors got? 00:05:09
Previous engagement. 00:05:13
And Mr. White. 00:05:14
I doubt he'd show up. I don't. I don't have a problem. He'll show up. 00:05:16
If we need it. 00:05:21
Well, that well under these circumstances. 00:05:23
It's it's really not necessary because he can't tell us anymore than we already know. 00:05:26
I'm ******* first. 00:05:34
That all you had to do. OK. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. 00:05:36
Ohh. 00:05:42
Ground rod. 00:05:43
Yeah. 00:05:45
Yes, Sir. 00:05:45
Memorize your table six months ago. 00:05:47
Land involves the owner. He's having some trouble with not getting some of his employees license. 00:05:50
And we had a meeting at TP day before that February 28th meeting. 00:05:56
Involved Chief Blankley and Howard Davidson, the young owner who's he's very young, he's Armador, got his mother and heavily 00:06:01
involved in the business. 00:06:05
And you tabled it six months to see if they would have no further trouble at the end of that time. If they had no further trouble 00:06:09
and were are doing right, then y'all would withdraw it. 00:06:13
And there has been no trouble. I'll check with. 00:06:18
Howard, yesterday and things are going well and no further trouble, so we would recommend that it be withdrawn. 00:06:21
Those the golf carts, The golf cart, LSD, taxi cabs? How many do they offer? 00:06:27
I don't know how many he has. It's not a it's a small number. 00:06:32
Between 1:00 and 3:00 on him. 00:06:36
He doesn't have that grocery cart. 00:06:38
OK, alright. Any questions? Thank you. 00:06:45
Have you seen the guy that motorized wheelchair pulling a cart? 00:06:50

Alright, so we have ponds, Yeah. Praying my kids don't. We've got. 00:07:13
One public hearing for you guys tonight, It's a rezoning. 00:07:18
For Beaker Property Group at 6615 Highway 69 S. 00:07:21
They're rezoning from R1 to BN. They're also annexing into the city, which will be introduced and. 00:07:26
Could be adopted tonight as well. 00:07:30
It's not harder. Ready. 00:07:33
That's a different one. 00:07:36
Ohh yeah yeah. So this one is down 69 S behind kind of where crew lounge is and. 00:07:37
That area. 00:07:44
It's just a vacant piece right now outside of the city, but they are requesting to annex in the city. When they do annex into the 00:07:47
city, they. 00:07:50
Come in as R1, so there also are requesting to rezone to BN which. 00:07:54
Is that blue as well in this map. So it's OK we're in that same on the rezoning before we vote on the annex and so it's we we do 00:07:58
the pre zoning language so that if. 00:08:03
You do deny the rezoning. They're likely not going to want to annex into the city at that point. 00:08:09
Harbor Rd. 00:08:16
Uh. 00:08:18
I'm not I don't know about this one is yes, it it would be that similar concept of I can actually show you here. 00:08:19
The. 00:08:26
Kind of office warehouse style. 00:08:28
Is that what you're referring to? 00:08:30
We can. We can talk further if. 00:08:33
Ohh, they're not putting arms. 00:08:35
Ohh, no no no no ohh. 00:08:37
So what are we actually voting on the moment? So you are voting on the rezoning. So they are rezoning from R1 to BN and then the 00:08:40
annexation is also coming up for introduction, but that by unanimous consent can be adopted tonight as well. 00:08:46
So those two items would be in front of you tonight? 00:08:55
It is. 00:08:58
Will this be the first opportunity? 00:09:00
For anybody with any objections to that, to air those the they went through Planning Commission as well and there were no, there 00:09:03
was no. 00:09:06
Here. 00:09:12
Sorry, as did that Marina thing. But that's that's true. Yeah, but this has been. 00:09:13
We set the public hearing for a while now, and it's been. 00:09:19
We have not had any issues whatsoever. 00:09:22
Come up. 00:09:25
So. 00:09:26
There any questions for that? 00:09:29
And in that case, but as far as the Marina thing, is that coming back today? 00:09:31
Right. 00:09:37
Yeah. 00:09:40
Should be. 00:09:42
Unless something else, Thank you. 00:09:44
You never know about it. 00:09:48

Will follow sequentially throughout the week. Next week we'll also be our last town hall series. 00:10:03
Of the summer and fall, so it's gonna be in in the Greater Alberta area this year. 00:10:10

event and really look forward to being there in your district. Absolutely. And then two, we're wrapping up the school supplies, so 00:11:39
pay your parking ticket with school Supplies Drive. I want to thank Jessica and her team for doing this. What a difference is it 00:11:45
makes for some young people, and you've heard me say now for three weeks in a row. 00:11:51
It's expensive to send your children to school and a lot of families. 00:11:58
In our community, live paycheck to paycheck and it makes it very difficult. 00:12:02
To provide for their children and so this helps fill a gap and it's a great way to you. You have a parking ticket, it's a great 00:12:06
way to pay it and then make a difference back. So please if you got it over to your parking ticket pay it with school supplies, 00:12:11
make a difference and or if you still want to continue to donate. 00:12:17
Just reach out to Tuscaloosa 311. They'll be happy. OK? That's all I have. Mr. Tanner, that sounds great. We will be requesting an 00:12:23
executive session, OK? 00:12:27
Alright, thank you. 00:12:31

what you feel like saying. So we have Mr. Bob Annis whose term expires on this Friday the 1st. 00:12:51

Mr. Ennis, he currently is the chair of that board and does he has expressed a desire to be reappointed. 00:13:03
