10. PLANNING COMMISSION REPORT. Planning Commission Chairman, Bryon Terry, reported on the meeting held last week. He explained that the Commission held a public hearing for the Ideal Acres Subdivision. They were not present and still had some items they were working through with the gas company before they could submit their final plan.
The Commission approved a couple of conditional use permits for preschools.
A company called Weber Auto Sales has applied for a business license to start a car lot in the Jones Glass parking lot. They will be renting the portion of the building on Main Street and have cars out front. They were told that they could not be over the sidewalks or in the site triangle, but they did not require a certain amount of cars. They did ask them to clarify what areas they would be using. They will also be doing some landscaping and a little repair of the parking lot. The Commission approved the business to be located there.
 
11. ADDITIONAL REVIEW AND DISCUSSION OF TENTATIVE BUDGET. Mr. Langston mentioned the block wall that was installed along the cemetery property and stated that the City’s half is $11,250. This was not included in the budget, so we will need to add this in the current year’s budget of the cemetery and take it out of perpetual care as a transfer.
