Guyton city council’s approval to rezone a 2.06 acre portion of property located at 705 Central Blvd. from R-1 to C-1 means the citizens will be getting a new post office.
Guyton’s Planning and Zoning Board recommended the rezoning with one condition:
That the U.S. Postal Service makes sure that the landscaping is sufficient and in line with other nearby buildings.
According to postmaster John Mobley, construction of the new building should be complete in about eight months.
Other actions approved by city council during last week’s special called meeting include:
• Second reading of an ordinance to establish a department of public safety, to set forth the department’s functions and duties, the effective date and for other purposes.
• Second reading of an ordinance amending the water and sewer ordinance to modify the procedure for water cut-offs, increasing the amount of the service charge for non-payment of water bills and other related matters. Alderman Jeff Lariscy confirmed they were changing the date “from a moving target to a set date.”
• Second reading of an ordinance to amend the ordinance: abatement of nuisances, setting forth procedural and substantive provisions, including the designation of Guyton’s municipal court as tribunal for citations.
• nCourt online traffic citation payment service for citizens wishing to pay their tickets online.
• Purchase of a complete Flosearch II System for $4,300 for the waterworks system.
The next regularly scheduled Guyton council meeting will be held Sept. 9 at 7 p.m. in the city hall.
