Mahoney, Jr. was also in attendance. Councilperson David McCutchen. was absent because of work responsibilities. The first visitor to appear before Council was Mrs. Lois Lindsay who complained of having to pay a business license and extra base charges for wat-Pr and sewer service because she rents apartments; she feels that this is a resort area and many people rent rooms and apartments that are paying neither of these charges. Mayor Hosti promised that he would look into her situation and assured her that all people renting more than one unit are supposed to abide by these same guidelines, and that the city is assessing these charges on everyone known to be renting. The next visitor was Jack Youmans, a volunteer fireman who reported an incident that occured at an accident scene on top of Lazaretto Creek bridge last Sunday. The incident led to a question of jurisdiction between the Chatham County Police and the local fire department. Mayor Hosti replied that he had only become aware of the incident a few hours earlier, and that he was awaiting a report from the Police Commissioner who is investigating. The question of jurisdiction will be addressed and settled, he stated. Police Commissioner Orsini commented that Mr. Mahoney, as Recorder's Court Judge and City Attorney, should be asked to advise us on the question and that Chatham County should be notified. He stressed the history of close cooperation between city and county police and this must be preserved because this cooperation is essential for the public welfare. Councilperson Solomon moved acceptance of two sets of minutes 1 00085 March 1, 1984 Page TWo from the month of February, seconded by Councilperson Orsini and passed by unanimous vote. Bills for the month of February, 1984 were approved as follows: Water /Sewer - $11,182.72, Public Works - $3,634.47, Sanitation - $1,688.54, General Government - $5,524.82, Recreation — $741.37, Fire Department - $2,079.22, First Responder - $369.99, Parking Meters - $869.24, Police Department - $7,408.16. Water /Sewer Chairman Paul Jackson reported that renovation of #6 Pumping Station is nearing completion and that the employees have been working long hours assisting the contractor. He also reported that an EPD evaluation of the waste water treatment plant has just been completed and that the verbal remarks were good and very complimentary to Mr. Art Harden, plant supervisor. Councilperson Hutton reported that the South Campbell Avenue paving has been delayed because of weather conditions but will soon be completed and that extra dirt from the site will be used on dirt streets which need refurbishing because of the rain. She further noted that the EPD evaluation of the landfill was very good, and that the DPW buildings are under construction. Prepar- ation for the summer season has begun and trash barrels are being donated again this year by SunKist. The department is trying to eliminate tow -away signs by painting yellow lines onto the pavement. Councilperson Wylly reported that the computer changeover is nearly complete and should be fully on line in another month. Be reported that Representative Bobby Phillips was successful in getting $60,000.00 into the State Budget for erosion control. Mayor Hosti added that the administration is waiting -for a March 9th meeting with the scientific task force committee that is presently evaluating past studies of erosion. After this meeting action will be taken to curb erosion, especially at those most serious sections (First Street and the South End.) 1 00086 March 1, 1984 Page Three Councilperson Solomon reported that the basketball program is nearly over and that Tybee Island will be represented this weekend by teams playing in the Georgia Parks & Recreation Society's District Tournament in Brunswick. He also stated that the Recreation Board has worked very hard and has prepared a year -round schedule and a proposed budget for the coming fiscal year. Police Commissioner Orsini gave a report of the callsamswered by the police during the past month. He stated that three people have been bitten by dogs since Christmas and that, due to complaints, enforcement of the dog control ordinance will be tightened. He stressed that dogs are not allowed on the beach, even if restrained by a leash, and stated that the Chatham County Animal Control would be caning much more often. He told the public to call the Police Department if they wished to complain about a loose dog. Mayor Hosti added that he has received many letters complaining about stray dogs, and called everyone's attention to an article in the current Tybee News. Councilperson Solomon noted that the absence of the Fire Commissioner prevented his reporting on two fully involved structural fires and that both buildings were saved due to the efforts of the volunteer firefighters. He said :that he knew Councilperson McCutchen would commend the firefighters if he were present. Mayor Hosti stated that Councilperson McCutchen was delayed unexpectedly in his work and hoped that he might come in before the end of the meeting. Councilperson Hutton introduced the Second Reading of the Sign Ordinance ( #1984 -2) by first reading a letter from Planning Commission Chairman Arnie Seyden suggesting changes recommended by a joint meeting of the planning commission and a committee of business persons. Councilperson Hutton first read the suggested amendments, then commented on them. Some amendments were accepted after study by the City Council and the Mayor's ad hoc sign committee, with input from MPC. Others were not accepted. The ordinance, with amendments included, was read by Councilperson Hutton who then -_ -moved its adoption. Councilperson Jackson seconded the 1 00087 March 1, 1984 Page Four motion and it was approved by a vote of four (4) to one CO with Councilperson Solomon casting the negative vote. Councilperson Jackson read an ordinance to amend the sewer ordinance as pertaining to taps and costs (Code Section 6 -2 -4). After some discussion during which the Mayor explained that this would not change the present practices but would delete references to additional charges for outside city limits and to actual amounts of fees. The reason for the change is that there is no longer any need for fees outside city limits since we have annexed the area we serve. The Water /Sewer Commissioner requested that this ordinance be read again later in the meeting so that it could become immediately effective. A vote was taken and there were four (4) in favor of adoption and one (1) -( Councilperson Solomon) against. Mayor Hosti, since the vote was not unanimous, postponed the Second Reading until the next regular meeting. Councilperson Wylly introduced a request for an extension of a permit for a temporary sales office for Tybee Ocean Villas. Mr. Bill Story spoke for the developers, stating that this sales office is not a part of their permanent development plan which is on file with the city already, but that the office is still needed since sales are still going on. During discussion gruncilperson Hutton stated that she will vote in favor of extending this permit once but not again because she believes nonconforming uses lead to pressure from others for similar requests. Mayor Hosti noted that the facility, if utilized on a permanent basis, would be in violation of the flood ordinance. The vote was unanimously in favor of a one -year extension. Mr. David Steele of Tybee Cable Television, Inc. presented a request for a rate increase of $1.00, from $11.95 to $12.95 for basic cable service. The increase is to help upgrade equipment and everyone should have better reception. There was some discussion of details of programming to be added and dropped; the people who have paid in advance will be exempt from the increase until their 1 1 0008S March 1, 1984 Page Five advance is depleted. Councilperson Solomon moved that the rate increase be granted, Councilperson Orsini seconded and the vote was four (4) in favor and one (1) against (Councilperson Wylly) . Mr. Steele then presented the city with a check in the mount of $3,419.85 for the franchise fee for 1983. Councilperson Jackson explained that the Citizen Band radios being used by the city hall staff to located Water /sewer and public works personnel are not getting the job done. He is accepting bids for VHF radios so that the city can have its own channel and moved that the low bid be accepted. Councilperson Orsini seconded, and the vote was unanimously in favor. It was noted that the low bid received is under $3,500.00 and is for a Motorola System. Councilperson Wylly moved to adjourn and the motion was unanimously accepted. 1 1 # 1984 -2 00089 AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY OF TYBEE ISLAND, GEORGIA, CODE OF ORDINANCES, TO BE ENTITLED AS FOLLOWS: ARTICLE 8 - PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT, CHAPTER 4 - ZONING, ARTICLE B - ZONING DISTRICTS, SECTION 20 - SIGNS.
