Variance issues top city agenda
Commissioners to hear from Keep Bulloch Beautiful
Placeholder Image
    The Statesboro City Council and the Bulloch County Board of Commissioners will both gather today for their regularly scheduled first meetings of the month.
    The council will consider three variance requests. The Jennings-DeLoach Warehouse Company, home of the Statesboro Flea market, and the Monster Self-storage facility on Veteran's Memorial Parkway will seek to reduce the require off-street parking requirement for their respective properties. In the other request, Jimmy Anthony will seek to reduce the setback and building separation requirements for his property at 374 Northside Drive East.
    In other business, the council will consider a motion for City Manager Shane Haynes to execute a contract with Lott-Barber to prepare a unified land development code for the city.     The council will also consider a motion to amend the city's municipal code regarding water and sewer service to multiple unit dwellings. If approved, the code change would require owners of multiple unit dwellings served by a master meter to pay the minimum base water and sewer rate for each unit, plus consumption charges, regardless of whether or not the unit is occupied.
    The city council meets on the second floor of City Hall, in the council chambers, starting at 9 a.m.
    The county commission faces a light agenda for their evening meeting. To start, commissioners will receive a presentation by Keep Bulloch Beautiful regarding a state-wide recycling campaign. After approving the consent agenda and considering an amendment to the KBB bylaws, the commission will enter into executive session to address personnel matters and a possible real estate acquisition.
    The commission meets in the Community Room of the North Main Annex starting at 5:30 p.m. this evening.
