Glasgow City Council spent Monday night’s regular meeting approving second readings of adjustments to four local ordinances.
The four ordinances up for discussion Monday night ranged from planning and development to drug- and alcohol-free workplace regulations. The first amendment applied to Glasgow’s planning and development ordinance. According to the amended version of the ordinance, a piece of property one acre or larger must have an approved development plan with the Joint City-County Planning Commission before any grading, stripping, excavation, filling or other disturbance of natural ground can occur. When a single-family dwelling unit is proposed on one or more acres of disturbed ground, grading and erosion control plans are required to be housed in the office of the Joint City-County Planning Commission, but no formal approval of the planning commission is required.
Glasgow’s zoning ordinance underwent some minor adjustments that included some definition changes and inclusions, and one correction of an error. The changes were just housekeeping items, Mayor Rhonda Trautman said after the meeting.
An ordinance of much discussion at the last city council meeting, Ordinance No. 2646 about placement of signs in the city, was approved with one additional amendment Monday. The ordinance was clarified to address time limitations on special event signs, number of signs displayed by a real estate company and locations of signs in rights-of-way. Councilman Wendell Honeycutt added one more amendment during the discussion Monday to give property owners the same ability to display sale signs for their homes as real estate agents.
