Brady Council Gives Final Approval To Special Use Provision


At their meeting Tuesday night, , the Brady City Council adresssed two zoning related issues.

The first was approval of the second and final reading of an ordinance providing for a Special Use Permit for the Central Business District for a retreat center at 100 N. Blackburn Street at the Serenity Quilts facility.

The second involved a discussion of an appeal of a decision of the Planning and Zoning Commission  denying a request by Lance Grove to build an 8/9 foot fence as a Special Use Provision for a Multi-Family District property at 401 S. Pine Street. However, the Council decided more information was needed and will probably order another public hearing on the request.

The first item taken up by the Council was a discussion of  a request for a temporary street closures related to the Christmas In the Heart parade on December 10th.

The Council concluded with an Executive Session for consulting with the City Attorney with regard to Emergency Medical Services, and to discuss personnel evaluations of the Police Chief and Municipal Court Judge. The Council took no action on the issues discussed in the Executive Session.

Appearing on KNEL’s Morning Program Wednesday, Brady Mayor Tony Groves indicated the Council will be holding a meeting with the City’s Utility Dept. to review and discuss the state of the City’s electrical service in light of a rash of electrical outrages experienced recently.
