The Manchester City Council held a couple of public hearings on Monday night.
One of the hearings involved the City entering into a loan agreement for the new Meadow Brook Trail subdivision that is being planned along the east city limits. Local developer Wes Schulte plans to build 51 townhomes, duplex units and single family homes on nearly 19 acres just east of the Good Neighbor Society campus. City Manager Tim Vick says the Council approved the general obligation corporate purpose loan agreement and to borrow money thereunder in a principal amount not to exceed $650,000.
The Manchester City Council also held a public hearing on a proposed five year lease agreement with Mediacom for the former Well House that sits adjacent to the Williams Street water tower. Vick says Mediacom uses the Well House to store equipment.
The City Council has also approved amending the City’s fee schedule. New fees have been added, including for planned unit development amendments, site plan review fees and building in the flood plain.
And Vick says the City had a request from Manchester resident Lynne Majetic to have chickens at her property at 724 East Fayette Street.
The Manchester City Council has been meeting via video and phone through Zoom during this time – the public has also been able to listen to or participate in the meetings via Zoom or by sitting in the Council Chambers with City staff and the mayor while complying with the six-foot social distancing protocol.
