Eight public hearings set for tonight council meeting

By CHRIS AGEE

Following an unusually brief agenda earlier this month, Mineral Wells City Council members tonight will conduct eight public hearings in addition to considering action on a number of other items.

The hearings, giving locals an opportunity to speak to city leaders in favor of or against pending issues, include the following:

Local teen club

After receiving the recommendation of the Planning and Zoning Commission following a public hearing April 1, the council will hold a separate hearing tonight regarding applicants for Venue 2:17. The club for teens recently opened at 212 S.E. 1st Avenue.

In compliance with the city's zoning ordinance, applicant Brenda Stewart and owner Mike Mearse submitted an application for a specific use permit – with the intent of operating an amusement center/teen club – last month. Tonight's hearing will be the last step before Stewart and Mearse can be granted authorization of specific use.

Oilfield services company

According to an application filed with the city last October, applicants Ada Kelleher and Wrench Runner Inc. are seeking a specific use permit to operate an oilfield service company located at 1704 Municipal Highway 379.

The Planning and Zoning Commission held its public hearing April 1 and recommends issuance of the permit.

Upon the completion of another public hearing at tonight's meeting, council members will consider voting to grant the permit pursuant to applicable conditions and requirements.

Additional public hearings related to this item include:

• Final plat of Lot 1, Block 1 of the Kelleher Addition.

• Request for a change in zoning on Lot 1, Block 1 of the Kelleher Addition from single family to commercial.

Undeveloped Altamont roads

In response to a request from applicant Betty Meyers, council will host a public hearing tonight regarding the abandonment of platted streets in the Altamond addition of Mineral Wells.

The list of undeveloped road segments includes portions of N.E. 7th, 8th and 9th Avenues and N.E. 11th Street.
