City council to review one- and six-year street program

YORK – It’s that time of year again, when the director of public works presents the proposed one- and six-year street program to the York city administration and council.

That will take place this Thursday, when the city council meets in regular session.

This is done each year, as the street projects for this year (the one-year program) are outlined as priority and future projects (the six-year program) are considered for priority moving forward.

Also on Thursday’s agenda when the council meets in regular session:

  • The council will consider a special designated liquor license application filed by the York Chamber of Commerce for a tasting event at the Kilgore Library on May 2.
  • The council will talk about the future new fire station construction and the process that is currently underway in preparation for that construction.
  • The council will recognize the existence of some surplus property which will then be disposed of.
  • The council will also consider some resolutions which declare certain structures/properties in the city are “unsafe or unfit for human occupancy because there exist violations” of the maintenance code. Three properties are listed as being unsafe or unfit for the council’s consideration: 55 S. Platte Avenue, 803 N. York Ave. and 1631 N. York Ave.
  • An annexation ordinance pertaining to a property at the interchange will gets its third reading.
  • A public hearing will be held regarding an ordinance that would allow administrative plats to provide for lot splits, combinations and additions, as well as boundary adjustments, without having to re-plat the lot.
  • They will also consider the sale of real estate to a private person.

The public is encouraged to attend the meeting, which will begin at 5:30 p.m., in the council chambers.
