Lennette and Jon Crumet – Came before the Council after the Special Planning Commission meeting regarding a special use permit to allow them to move a newer mobile home on to the property at 637 Whitfield. Property owners Martha and Chuck Falk were also present. The final decision of the special use permit is to be determined by the City Council. Lennette Crumet spoke providing details of the mobile home: 1989 single wide manufactured home, putting on a permanent foundation – title work to the home says it is a manufactured home – The Council had some questions – whether the home was considered a residential design manufacture home – initially the council requested more information regarding the title and looked to seek guidance from the City Attorney, then questions about the actual dimensions of the home were brought up. City Code minimum width for an allowed manufactured home is 22’ and this single wide is only 13.8’, so it does not meet minimum requirements.
Susie Hackathorn motioned to not approve the special use permit allowing the mobile home to be moved on to the property at 637 Whitfield. Elsie Middleton seconded the motion.
Motion passed 5 yeas, 0 nays.
