LYMAN – The Lyman Town Council began their meeting Jan. 17, by adjourning to executive session.
When they returned, Jack and Marriane Bluemel of Main Street Mechanics came before the council appealing a decision of the Planning and Zoning Committee to deny a request for a conditional use permit for their business. Approval of the permit would allow them to park inoperable vehicles on the property.
The Bluemels were accompanied by their legal counsel, attorney Jake Skog.
The council discussed with the Bluemels stipulations they would be required to follow if the permit were granted. The stipulations were the Bluemels will be allowed to park no more than seven inoperable vehicles on the property, and the vehicles would have to be parked on the south lot of the property adjacent to the east fence. The council unanimously voted to approved the permit. The permit will be reviewed again in one year.
The Bluemels plan to again approach the Planning and Zoning Committee and request a zone change from commercial to light industrial for the business property.
The council discussed the July 4 fireworks display as it is Lyman’s turn to host the event. There is a possibility the location of the display would have to be moved due to the construction of homes near the Rodeo Grounds Complex as they may be closer than a 300-foot radius to the display.
The council discussed the possibility of asking the school district for permission to hold the display at Lyman High School. They also discussed the possibility of sponsoring the display, but, approaching the Town of Mountain View if the display could be held there.
Hutchinson will “re-measure” the distance from the site of the display to the new homes, and report back to the council.
