City of Marshall appoints new mayor pro tem, passes zoning ordinance amendment
During a Marshall City Council meeting Monday, May 7, council members voted on a new mayor pro tem.
According to unofficial meeting minutes, Mayor Mark Gooden stated it was time to nominate a new council member to serve in that capacity. Charles Guthrey, who had been serving as mayor pro tem, made a motion to nominate Councilman Chuck Hines. The council unanimously approved the nomination.
Council members took other action Monday night, including approving a liquor license for Quick Run on South Odell Avenue.
The city, along with the Saline County Emergency Management Commission, presented a proclamation honoring the late Emmit Williams. Williams served as Saline County Emergency Management director, worked in law enforcement, and served as Civil Air Patrol Wing Commander. The street leading to the Marshall Memorial Municipal Airport has been dedicated to Williams, and a street sign bearing his name was presented to Mrs. Marshal Williams, according to meeting minutes.
In other news, the council had a second reading of an ordinance amending a zoning ordinance by adding a special use for boarding kennels in the “C-2 Highway Business District,” and it was approved.
Another ordinance was presented Monday. The council approved an ordinance authorizing and directing the mayor to execute a contract between the city, the Board of Public Works and Visu-Sewer Inc. This is for the purpose of rehabbing sewer mains using cured-in-place pipe.
Meeting minutes have not yet been approved by the council. Council members Dewey Hendrix, Kirk Arends, Ron Ott, Chuck Hines, Charles Guthrey, Dan Brandt and Tom Hagedorn were present. The next regular meeting is scheduled for Monday, May 21.
