Red Bud Council held brief meeting Monday

The Red Bud City Council held a brief meeting on Monday night, with not much discussion on the items on the evening’s agenda.

From the Planning Commission, the council considered a special use permit that will allow for a home occupied business in a residence on West Market Street.

In the Planning Commission’s hearing minutes held on Jan. 28, it was noted that Dana Barrows, who runs a professional counseling business currently located at The Phoenix, wanted to operate in a place of her own. She currently rents the home, owned by Mike and Erin Liefer, on West Market.

The city council approved of the special use permit.

From the Economic Development Commission, the council approved of a four year property tax abatement of 50 percent for Gateway Fabrication Solutions, LLC.

From the Finance Committee, approved was a training request for City Administrative Assistant Pam Poetker. It was noted that this is a two day workshop in Springfield that is required for the electric infrastructure grant that the city received. While there is no registration fee, the council approved of paying for Poetker’s milage, hotel and meals.

The council also approved of paying for interested council members to attend the Red Bud Chamber of Commerce’s annual dinner.
