Centralia City Council to Consider Waive Demolition Permit Fees for 2013

By Bruce Kropp, WJBD News

The Centralia City Council will be asked Monday night to continue to waive demolition permit fees for 2013.  The goal of the fee waiver is to assist in the process to demolish derelict and dilapidated houses.   The council will also consider two resolutions to complete demolition of two substandard buildings and allow the owners to pay back the cost of the demolition over time.  

The Men's United Club would repay $2,682 over 24 months to pay for the cost of demolishing a home at 411 North Lincoln.  Clifford Rapp would repay the city $432 over the next year for removal of an accessory structure on his property at 419 Leafland.  The Community Development and Planning staff believes the demolition projects are a positive step for the city and will remove structures that currently violate city code.   

Centralia City School Superintendent David Rademacher is requesting that 13th Street between Elm and Lincoln be designated as a school speed zone.

The Director of the Recreation Complex Sonya Germann is requesting permission to use Fairview Park for a Family Wellness Fair one night during the week of July 15th to the 20th.  The fair will include vendors and various fitness activities.  It would be open to the public for information and a family fun night.  

The council will be asked to approve a resolution to have Heneghan and Associates perform preliminary engineering and engineering inspection services for the 2013 MFT Street Maintenance Program.   

The meeting begins at seven Monday night at Centralia City Hall.
