This project ordinance will appropriate $6,812,956 awarded by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and a required local match from the Airport Operating Fund of $358,577 for the Runway 4/22 rehabilitation project.  Council initially approved a capital project budget for this project in June 2008, contingent upon receiving a federal grant for the project.  Since the grant was not awarded as of June 30, 2008 (our fiscal year end), staff requests Council's approval of a new project ordinance to replace the one contingently approved in June.

Council Member Bates stated he contacted a temporary storage container company to determine the date of delivery and the company refused to disclose the information.  Council Member Bates asked whether the date of delivery could be placed on the units to better monitor the duration of the units.

AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF FAYETTEVILLE AMENDING CHAPTER 30, ZONING, OF THE CODE OF ORDINANCES OF THE CITY OF FAYETTEVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA.  ORDINANCE NO. S2008-015

Council Member Crisp inquired about the lack of a grandfather clause.  Mr. Teal explained bracing on the outside of an existing fence would be grandfathered in and the one year would allow for nonconforming fences or fences constructed out of inappropriate materials to come into compliance.  Mr. Teal noted a statement could be included in the ordinance to provide further clarification should Council so desire.

 

This is the advertised public hearing set for this date and time.  The public hearing opened at 8:38 p.m.

 

No one appeared in favor.

 

Trey McLean, 1233 Hunters Trail, Hope Mills, NC appeared in opposition representing his client who he stated had expressed concerns regarding the wording of the proposed ordinance, the negative impact on construction material innovation, building inspectors being given the discretion to approve nonlisted items, and the lack of grandfathering with regard to supporting slats.

            At the request of Council Member Haire, Mr. McLean provided examples of materials that could be in violation of the ordinance as proposed.

VOTE:              PASSED by a vote of 7 in favor to 3 in opposition (Council Members Evans, Haire and Applewhite)

 

4.            ADOPTION OF STORMWATER CONTROL ORDINANCE

 

            Greg Caison, Stormwater Division Manager, provided background information that led to the development of the stormwater control ordinance.  Mr. Caison spoke briefly to work performed by the stakeholder’s group, the Stormwater Advisory Board and city staff to address the expected requirements of the new NPDES permit and requirements to minimize future potential flooding.  Mr. Caison called attention to Section 23-68.2(e) and recommended that the phrase “stormwater management facilities related to detention ponds and other BMPs constructed to meet the requirements of this ordinance” be added to clarify the intent.  Mr. Caison stated the ordinance was presented and discussed at the City Council work session on August 4, 2008.  Mr. Caison stated an effective date of January 1, 2009 was recommended.

 

            Council Member Meredith asked whether the ordinance as revised following the public hearing had been reviewed with stakeholders and the Stormwater Advisory Board.  Mr. Caison stated an opportunity for discussion had been provided but the stakeholder’s group was not interested in additional regulations.  Council Member Crisp expressed concern that Council had not been provided copies of minutes of the discussions.  Mr. Caison responded to further questions.  Mayor Chavonne asked that staff work to determine the specifics that are preventing consensus regarding the ordinance.

                        Harvey Raynor, Deputy County Attorney, stated following the public hearing before the City Council on August 11, 2008, Council moved to table the agreement to allow for further negotiations.  Mr. Raynor addressed changes to the franchise agreement consistent with those negotiations to include a ten-year term with a possibility of two ten-year extensions and a thirty-day notice by the county to the city of any substantial amendments or modifications to its permit.  Mr. Raynor stated the changes as presented would satisfy the county’s immediate need.
