THE VILLAGE REPORTER
The Archbold Village Council dealt with some legislative matters at its meeting June 20.
The council approved the second reading of two ordinances one authorizing up to $20,000 a year to improve the local retail and commercial business development and promotion after the relocation of the SR 66 truck route.
The other authorized the village attorney to petition the Fulton County Board of Commissioners to change township lines.
The council amended an ordinance governing the parking and maintenance of recreational equipment.
The new language is part of the exceptions to limitations on parking RVs at residences.
The amended language follows wording limiting the parking of RVs to 3 feet behind the front house line and 3 feet away from the side and read lot lines, except that for loading and unloading purposes the equipment may be parked in the driveway for a period of not more than 48 hours “and subject to the stipulation that in cases of unusual circumstances such as topography, irregular shape of lot, location of buildings and unique hardship the owner may get an informed consent variance signed by all property owners within 200 feet which would eliminate a formal public hearing. The consent form shall be drafted by the Zoning Inspector and returned in a timely manner. If all signatures are not acquired, a public hearing will be set for a formal variance request with the Zoning Board of Appeals. The fee for the consent form shall be the same as for a formal hearing.”
The council later passed Resolution 2016-47 accepting Brice W. Meyer as a probationary officer for the police department.
The council named Robert Seaman to serve on the Fulton County Subcommittee of the Ohio Public Works Commission.
