DuBois to review DRMC request
Friday, September 6, 2013
By Josh Woods Staff Writer
DUBOIS - DuBois Regional Medical Center's request for modification to the City of DuBois' subdivision and land development ordinance requirements is headed to the planning commission for a final review.
DuBois City Council yesterday at its work session approved DRMC's SALDO modification request to construct a proposed pharmacy along Main Street. Councilman Ed Walsh and Councilwoman Diane Bernardo commended DRMC for working with the city to submit a comprehensive request.
"It's a delicate balance because there's always the compromise of housing," said Bernardo. "I'm glad the city and DRMC have such a great relationship that this is working out."
The modification calls for widening turnaround areas and Ginther Alley, as well as additional parking, Planning Commission Chairwoman Nancy Moore said.
"The modification is needed to make the property usable for the development the city is focusing on which is the O-office district," said Moore. "The modifications are not intrusive, and they're beneficial to the rest of the area."
Code Enforcement Officer Zac Lawhead reminded residents its against the city's ordinance to blow grass onto the street. Blowing grass onto the street causes a lot of problems for the public works department, he said, and he's been getting a lot of complaints.
The co-signer on a loan for the property located at 210 Rumbarger Ave. has cleaned it up, Lawhead said. "The property looks great."
Council awarded bids for the Patterson Avenue paving project, type 2 anti-skid material and 2-A limestone. The paving project was awarded to Glenn O. Hawbaker, Inc. in the amount of $186,823. Bucktail Excavators, Inc. was awarded the anti-skid ($16.43/ton) and 2-A limestone ($13.38/ton) bids.
In other business, trick-or-treat hours were set for Oct. 31 from 5-7 p.m. The hours coincide with Sandy Township, City Manager John "Herm" Suplizio said.
Community Life Church's request to use the Edward V. Cherry Amphitheater on Oct. 5 from 4-8 p.m. to show a movie on a giant inflatable screen was approved.
Councilman Randy Schmidt was absent from the meeting.
DuBois City Council's next meeting is Monday at 7 p.m. at the city building.
