Stacy City Council met July 13 for a regular meeting. Jennie Carlson was absent.
The council opened the meeting by signing a tax abatement agreement for All Mac unanimously. All Mac received approval for up to $2500 per year for five years and an additional $5000 from the County for five years. The city would have a cap of $12,500 in abatements with the county allowing up to $25,000.
All Mac does trailer manufacturing, repair, parts, customization, and accessories and has plans to build at 5551 Sherman Oaks Road, on the east side of the freeway.
The city then signed an agreement for the Rise organization to clean the Stacy Sports Bar & Grill at a rate of $22.44 per hour.
In the engineer’s report, City engineer Dan Boyum told the council the street utility improvements for 311th street and 307th street drawings were being finalized and a schedule will soon be available.
Boyum told the council he fielded some questions about a potential apartment complex inquiring about the property just north of the Post Office on Forest Blvd.
Boyum said Foxhill Avenue, 314th Street, and the Ferris Trail paving projects have probable costs. The Council can discuss next steps related to bringing property ownersinto the process.
The council then approved the site plan for Service Grinding & Sharpening (SGSI) in the Stacy Business Park. All members voted in favor.
The council then discussed a stark difference in gallons of water pumped from city wells, compared to gallons billed. Currently the city is billing 13 percent less than what’s coming out of the ground. Mayor Utecht pointed out the difference is likely lost to outdated water meters and the city may have to look into new water meters.
The council then received an update on Stacy Daze. Tents have been secured as well as portable fencing. McDonald’s Distributing will provide the serving cart and wrist bands and the Lions Club will be in charge of liquor sales. Lion Andy Zuercher told the council he is going to request the Lions Club no longer do Stacy Daze due to increasing frustration over alcohol consumption and restrictions.
Council member Mark Ness re-iterated as in past years, he does not support the entire Lions Park being used for alcohol consumption. The council then voted 3-1 in favor of granting a liquor license to the Lions Club with Ness voting against.
The council then gave the ok to the Rustic Inn for outside beer sales during Stacy Daze unanimously.
The council then accepted a plea deal package as a party in the criminal case against Ryan Patzer, 30, Center City, in regards to an arson fire at Doyle Memorial Fields. Patzer was set for trial in August for the incident.
The plea includes 90 days jail served, restitution, he will supply a DNA sample and remain law abiding.
The council passed a motion to approve a liquor license for the Stacy Lions Club for the Rich Doyle Memorial Field for the year.
In the engineer’s report, city engineer Dan Boyum discussed street and utility improvements for 307th and 311th Streets. Boyum hopes to have the scope of the project for the April council meeting.
Boyum said due to the cold temps in February, the cleaning and televising of the 311th Street was delayed. The work was then completed on March 3, he will have a report to the council soon.
Boyum told the council the All-Mac site (old BP station) plans were submitted to the planning commission. There will be a public hearing for an application for a variance in the general business district for design standards and exterior finishes. The owners are looking for a variance because the business does not face a thoroughfare. The variance application also points out other building in town that are non-conforming to the existing zoning classifications.
In the clerk’s report, the council discussed holding an informal session to gage residents’ interest in having Foxhill and part of Sherman Oaks paved. The council scheduled a meeting for April 27 at 7pm.
Stacy Bar manager John Wicklander then told the council there was an issue with management support when he is not present. Wicklander said the assistant manager is not available nights and weekends forcing Wicklander to be on-call seven days a week. Wicklander offered a solution of moving the assistant manager back to a supervisor position and look for two new supervisor postions to fill night kitchen, and night front of house position. These would be part-time postions. Wicklander said that is one solution and the other would be to find another assistant manager. The council agreed it was ultimately Wicklander’s decision.
The council then passed a motion approving the sale of a Stacy Ponds Business Park lot purchase. The sale of the lot is priced at $90,000 and is being purchased by Service Grinding & Sharpening, Inc.
The council then discussed how to memoralize former council member and business owner Tony Olivolo. The council agreed to come back with some ideas.
