LAKE SHORE -- A dock ordinance aimed at defining the use of docks, including areas of marginal shoreline and wetlands, was adopted by the Lake Shore City Council Tuesday night.
The ordinance was developed after a controversy last fall in which a dock was built through a bog area in Margaret Lake. Although that dock will be grandfathered in, the ordinance allow the city's Planning and Zoning Committee to place conditions on future docks and review their locations. It also requires conditional use permits for extensions to existing docks.
The council set 7 p.m. Feb. 26 as the date for a public hearing on the Baywood sewer improvement project.
Candidates are being sought to two vacancies on the city's Sewer Committee and one vacancy on the Planning and Zoning Committee.
The council decided to postpone consideration until March on a request by Clerk-Treasurer Angie Davis for a salary step increase.
A request for 38 hours in comp time by Officer Steve Sundstrom for time he spent on Emergency Medical Technician training was approved by the council. Although he did not request it, the council also awarded an equal amount of comp time to Public Works Supervisor James Thomas.
Council members agreed to donate $200 to the governor's May 12 fishing opener festivities on Pelican Lake.
