Culver Town Council to Meet Tonight

The Culver Town Council members will meet in regular session tonight.

The council members will act on additional readings of the traffic ordinance and the salary ordinance.

The traffic ordinance designates a congested motor vehicle traffic and pedestrian area on Lakeshore Drive and signage will be placed between 508 Lakeshore east to 824 Lakeshore Drive. The ordinance also creates a no parking zone for 50 feet from the intersection on both sides of the street on Batabano and South Plymouth Street.

There will be no parking allowed on the east side of Ohio Street from Davis to Mill Street and no parking on either side of Ohio Street from Washington Street to Jefferson Street.

The final portion of the ordinance bans semi-truck and trailer parking on residential streets. Semi trucks and trailers may be parked on private property in residential zones. Semi-truck idling time is restricted in a residential area for no more than 15 minutes.

A public hearing on the traffic ordinance is scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 9. Those choosing to voice an opinion about the ordinance who cannot otherwise attend the meeting may submit an email or written letter to the Culver Clerk-Treasurer to be read into the record and considered by the town council members during the public hearing.

Also during tonight’s meeting, a resolution to transfer funds within departments and funds will be considered as well as an ordinance to encumber 2017 funds. The council members are also expected to appropriate grant funds.

The Culver Town Council will meet at 6:30 p.m. ET tonight at the Culver Town Hall at 200 E. Washington Street.
