Russell City Council Approves Nuisance Resolutions, Discusses Vacant Building Ordinance

Russell City Council 2-7-17The Russell City Council met Tuesday and approved two nuisance resolutions and continued discussions regarding the proposed Vacant Building Ordinance.

The nuisance resolutions were for trash and old appliances at 704 East 3rd Street and a nuisance vehicle at 1645 North Elm Street.

City Manager Jon Quinday explains the proposed Vacant Building Ordinance that was introduced to the Council a couple months ago and continues to be tweaked by city staff.

He explains the definitions a little more and how it would work.

It's not just about appearance. It's also about safety concerns.

The Council could take action on the ordinance sometime before the end of the year.

Also Tuesday, the Council approved an annual grant application for the public transportation bus and another drawdown payment for the South Fossil Street Reconstruction Project.
