Council talks events, road work Tuesday

stillwater             The Stillwater City Council will discuss events, road work and special use permits at their meeting Tuesday.

At their 4:30 p.m. work session, the council discusses the city’s options following the Readex Research event survey results. Those options include: lifting the special events moratorium and have events be on a first-come, first-served basis, create a committee to form policy reccommendations based on the survey, continue the status quo regarding events but organize a group with members experienced in community-event organizing.

Also at that meeting, the council will discuss running events organized by Mastel Event Management. The events include the Stillwater Half-Marathon, Stillwater Log Run and the Stillwater Lift Bridge Road races. The events, if approved, would take place in May, July and October.

At the  7 p.m. business meeting, the council holds three public hearings. One regards approving a special use permit for a roof structure at the Freight House.

The second hearing is for road construction projects on Pine street from Broadway to Third Street South and Holcombe to Greeley streets as well as William Street from Willard to Pine streets and Martha Street from Willard to Pine streets; mill and overlay projects on Churchill from Third Street South to Greeley Street, Pine Street from Third Street South to Greeley Street, and Myrtle Street from Main Street to Third Street South.

Another hearing is for Washington County’s Orleans Street improvement project

Jane Taves will also be awarded a service award for her eight years on the Human Rights Commission.

Both meetings Tuesday are in the City Hall council chambers and are open to the public.
