The council approved the appointments of Scott Kuhlemeyer to Maryville Public Library Board of Trustees, Bryan Nigh to the public arts committee and Billie Mackey to the board of zoning adjustment and also as an alternate board of code appeals as well as reappointment of Bill Ingels and Brian Schmitz for three year terms.
Prior to the open meeting, there were two public hearings.
The first was to consider rezoning a property located at 214 Volunteer Avenue from M-1 light industrial to R-4 multi-family residence zone. No one spoke from the audience.
The second was in regard to the levy and collection of tax on the real estate and personal property in the city. No one spoke during this hearing either.
Later in the open session, both ordinances were approved by the council; allowing the rezoning of the 3.35 acre tract of land to be developed into two 16-plex apartments and setting the tax levies: the general fund, 35.7¢; library, 27.4¢; parks and recreation, 30.12¢ and debt retirement, 9.65¢ per $100 assessed valuation.
