  4. New Business
    • Morgan Minor Subdivision Preliminary Plat Approval
      • Tony Jackson introduced the topic of a three-lot subdivision between Danbury and Lakeview/Highview. A review shows that the lot sizes are appropriate. The developer has received confirmation from the Board of Public Works for sewer and water capacity. Mr. Jackson mentioned that there were some issues about drainage at first, but they have received a letter of approval from Saegesser Engineering. Mr. Jackson noted that the Developer is responsible for curbs, sidewalks, and gutters. 
      • John Spencer asked about the “performance bond”
      • Tony Jackson said that it deals with the installation of anything that is for public, not private use. Mr. Jackson noted that this is not a very big development, but the performance bond or letter of credit offers a guarantee that the sidewalks, gutters, and curbs will be built. The streets are already platted. There is one section not developed out yet, but it could be in the future.
      • Harold Hart, representative for the developer, addressed the board and showed them renderings of the subdivision plat to make clear the needs on the road.
      • Ben Ledbetter asked at what point the city will take over the street. Tony Jackson said not until the area is built out.
      • Motion to approve preliminary plan made by John Spencer
      • Seconded by Ben Ledbetter
      • No public comment
      • Unanimous approval.
  5. Adjournment
