Manchester City Council Meeting Recap

The Manchester City Council held two public hearings on Monday night.

City Manager Tim Vick says one of the hearings was on a request to rezone a double lot at 501 Grant Street.

A public hearing was also held on a request by potential buyer Jim Schaul to rezone 1228 North 2nd Street to allow a duplex to be built on the property. Several residents have come forth to Planning and Zoning with concerns about what the duplex would look like, so the City Council has tabled their decision until they get a recommendation from P&Z, who will meet again on March 6th.

And the Manchester City Council has agreed to authorize the loaning of funds from the Franchise Fee Fund to the Hotel Motel Tax Fund, paying 100-thousand dollars for an economic development project involving the new hotel going up on the west end of town.

Manchester’s city crews have been busy clearing streets with all the snowfall over the past few weeks. Vick says each snowstorm has led to several vehicles getting towed, so it’s important for local residents to pay attention to the snow emergencies.

Another snow emergency is in effect for Manchester through Wednesday morning.
