Motion carried.
 
Review proposed Ordinance No. 2010-26
 
An ordinance amending Section 1160.04 (a)(3), "Parking of Recreational Vehicles."
 
Mayor Cicero explained that there were two (2) items on proposed Ordinance No. 2010-26 which were amended by Council and the ordinance is before the Planning Commission so it can be recommended to Council to approve the amendments to proposed Ordinance No. 2010-26.
 
Mr. Febo stated he agrees with the two amendments to the ordinance, which are located in Section 1, part B, number 1.
 
At this time, the Secretary read a portion of the minutes from the March 25, 2010 Regular Meeting of the Planning Commission, which asked if the proposed ordinance would cause a hardship for current residents that own recreational vehicles, and if this new proposed ordinance would hurt residents more than it would help alleviate the problem.
 
Mr. Febo reiterated the above statement from the meeting minutes, and stated he feels that portion of the proposed ordinance is unfair and he cannot support an ordinance such as this.
 
Councilman Ward stated that this proposed ordinance is not as restrictive as the original rules passed. He explained that a motor home, under the old rules, is prohibited, except for ten (10) days out of the year, no matter the size of the vehicle.
 
In answer to Mr. Febo's question regarding the storage of a boat in a backyard, Councilman Ward stated it can be parked, as long as the boat is well screened and on a hard surface.
 
It was noted that the adequate screening of the recreational vehicle while being stored portion of the proposed ordinance was inadvertently left out.
 
Mr. Sirk, in referencing Section 1, B. 6, stated his concern is for the adjacent neighbor looking down from a second story window and seeing a recreational vehicle stored.
 
In answer to Mr. Sirk's question, Mayor Cicero stated the current ordinance, previously passed this year, has been enforced twice, but not for storage of a recreational vehicle specifically.
 
Mr. Murphy stated he would double check proposed Ordinance No. 2010-26, with regard to references to screening and correct if necessary.
 
Mr. Febo voiced his concern about residents knowing about this legislation before it is passed and enforced on October 1, 2010.
 
It was moved by Mr. DeCrane, seconded by Councilman Schlessel that recommendation be made to Council to adopt proposed Ordinance No. 2010-26, as originally written, with addition if necessary, of reference to screening of recreational vehicles when stored.
 
Roll Call:
 
Yeas: DeCrane, Febo, Sirk, Cicero, Schlessel
Nays: None.
 
Motion carried.
 
It was moved by Councilman Schlessel, seconded by Mr. DeCrane that the meeting be adjourned.
 
The question was put to a voice vote and passed unanimously.
 
Motion carried, meeting adjourned at 8:04 p.m.
