The Kingston Springs City Commission met in regular session last Thursday. All members were present.
During Community Input, B. J. Mitcham who has lived on Harpeth View Drive for 16 years, and she has only seen water over the road twice, “We have a sign that says ‘this street may flood.’” She asked if the sign was really necessary, and stated that it affected property values along the street and that she would like to see it removed.
An ordinance regulating animals in residential districts was up on the agenda again. Commissioners elected to defer the item until the February meeting, and discuss at their upcoming retreat.
Ordinance 13-002 concerning junk vehicles was approved unanimously on first reading. The ordinance prohibits the storing, parking or leaving of any vehicle which is “abandoned, wrecked, dismantled, inoperative, rusted, junked or in partially dismantled condition” on public or private property for more than 48 hours. After that time it will be declared a “public nuisance” and subject to notice of violation. This does not apply to vehicles enclosed within a bulding on private property, or to business vehicles used by licensed vehicles. The ordinance is available for viewing at City Hall, and will be up for second reading after a Public Hearing at the beginning of the March 21st meeting.
The Kingston Springs City Commission meets on the third Thursday of each month at 7p.m. in the Beck Town Meeting Hall in downtown Kingston Springs.
