City council approves CUP for daycare
The Tea City Council met June 6 and approved a conditional use permit for an in-home daycare.
Kristine Yttreness applied for the permit at 2405 Lammers Ct. The council approved the permit with the expectation of having a fence put around the yard by Oct. 1, which she has committed to doing as soon as possible.
They also approved a variance for a rear yard setback at 1115 Spencer Lane. The rear yard setback does not impact any adjacent landowners.
The council approved temporary alcohol licenses for retail on-sale liquor during Teapot Days June 16-17. The licenses were issued to the city at the city park and Squealer’s Smoke Shack at the concession stand and parking lot at the Athletic Complex.
They also approved permits for concerts to be held at Boss’ Pizzeria June 16 during Teapot Days and July 8. The permits allow for loud music to be played until midnight both nights.
The council approved the hiring of Michelle Howard as summer rec director and Laura Spieler as assistant summer rec director.
Councilman Joe Weis made a motion to put in a four-way stop at Main Street and First Street, but it died for lack of second. The rest of the council wanted to wait for the committee that was set up last month to come back with their recommendations to make the intersection safer.
The council approved the foundation permit at 2000 and 2010 E. Manville St. in the Landmark Industrial Park. They also approved the off-premise sign at 1920 E. Gateway Lane.
The council moved forward with getting some contractors in to look at the church portion of the Community Hall and the hall to get quotes to repair the roof and siding. The church part needs a new foundation. They discussed getting quotes to make sure everybody’s on the same page to fix it up. Mayor Casey Voelker noted that it is one of the only old buildings Tea has, but how to proceed with the repairs based on what quotes come in.
