THE CITY OF MONTICELLO, IOWA
IN THE NAME AND BY THE AUTHORITY OF THE CITY OF MONTICELLO, IOWA
To approve setback related to Kraus Plumbing & Heating Monument Signage
WHEREAS, Brian Kraus has requested that the Council allow the installation of a monument sign in front of his business between the business and the Oak Street ROW that does not meet the standard 5’ setback set forth within the City Code, and
WHEREAS, The City Code specifically permits the Council to reduce that setback requirement, the provision being added to the Code to provide flexibility when the area available for the sign is limited and/or the ROW is very wide, and
WHEREAS, The Council has reviewed the proposed sign location and the Oak Street ROW and finds that it would not be inappropriate for the sign to be located up to the ROW so long as the sign does not infringe within the area of the ROW based upon the limited space between the building and the ROW and the wide nature of the Oak Street ROW.
NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED by the City of Monticello, through its’ City Council, in session this 16th day of October, 2017 that Brian Kraus is permitted to erect a monument style sign on his property, located at 317 S. Locust Street, between his building and the Oak Street ROW, with no setback from the ROW being required.
IN TESTIMONY WHEREOF, I have hereunto subscribed my name and caused the Great Seal for the City of Monticello, Iowa to be affixed. Done this 16th day of October, 2017.
Dena Himes, Mayor
Sally Hinrichsen, City Clerk
