While only a small piece of the project, progress continues on the upcoming American Family Care building on West Broadway Boulevard as the Sedalia City Council will vote tonight on rezoning the land for the upcoming business.
Council will review an ordinance granting a rezoning application by Guesa USA LLC for property located at 115 W. Broadway Blvd., from C-3 Commercial to C-2 General Business District. Rezoning to C-2 would match other businesses in the downtown district.
The Planning and Zoning Commission recommends approval after voting 8-0 earlier this month. Jorge Guevara, of Guesa, submitted the rezoning request to the Commission in late 2015. The change would be minor, but would not require a “rear yard” for the business.
“The current zoning of C-3, although is within the same category, places some restrictions on the property that could tremendously impact the feasibility of this project and land design of the same,” Guevara wrote in the request. “… Approving this rezoning request will allow our team to better design the layout of our property and allow us to create better flow with adjacent properties. It will allow us more room to move and place the drives onto the streets to match the CVS property to ours to create better flow of traffic …”
According to information Guevara submitted to the city for the request, development for the new business is scheduled for March to September.
Council will hear a financial update during the pre-council meeting from Finance Director Kelvin Shaw.
Mayor Steve Galliher will present a special award to Sedalia Police Department Officer Rodney Collins for retiring after 30 years and eight months of service.
During the meeting council will also:
• Review proposals for IP-based surveillance system. According to information in the meeting packet, the surveillance and interview recording systems at the Sedalia Police Department are at the end of their service lives. City staff recommends approval of the low bid of $14,973.83 from Custom Communications of Sedalia. There is an option for additional cameras within the municipal building lobby and council chambers, which would provide security that is currently not available to these areas.
• Review a bid for $47,648 from Bryant Motors of Sedalia for two 2016 Dodge Chargers for the Sedalia Police Department.
• Review an ordinance approving and accepting a permanent utility easement from Michael Lee Fisher and Katie E. Ray Fisher for sanitary sewer purposes relating to the city’s sewer relief project.
• Review Change Order No. 6 of $52,300 from Spray Com Utilities Inc. for the Collection System Rehabilitation Phase 1A Project. According to the meeting packet, the majority of this additional work is to add 38 service connections to the scope of work and must be done through excavation.
• Review an ordinance amending the budget for Fiscal Year 2015-16 regarding Change Order No. 6.
• Review a quote of $12,911.86 from World Wide Technology Inc. for the purchase of replacement computer equipment (12 computers, four laptops and five monitors) through the State of Missouri Cooperative Procurement Program. This is part of the normal IT Department replacement program.
• Review the appointment of local business owner Michelle Swords to the TIF Commission, completing Stafford Swearingen’s term expiring July 2016.
The Sedalia City Council pre-meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the mayor’s conference room with the regular meeting immediately following at 7 p.m. in council chambers at the Municipal Building, 200 S. Osage Ave. For more information, call 827-3000.
