Councilwoman Seeks Compromise on Live Music on South Main
St. Charles City Council is expected to discuss the issue at a work session Tuesday.
St. Charles City Council is expected to meet in special session Tuesday at 6:15 p.m., which will be immediately followed by a work session.
The live music in some restaurants on South Main Street is on the agenda for the work session. A local restaurant owner has petitioned to have the ordinance amended to allow restaurants on South Main Street that serve alcohol to apply for a conditional use permit to allow live music at their establishments.
Currently, the ordinance prevents restaurants that serve alcohol from having live music.
Councilwoman Mary Ann Ohms said she's interested in a compromise that might allow live music only inside.
"I want a compromise position if we can reach it," she said last week. "I'm going to try to get the best bill possible."
Other issues on the work session agenda include:
- Discussion of the Capitol Improvement Plan for calendar years 2013-2018 including discussion of building maintenance, streets, traffic signalization, street equipment, parking facilities, sanitary sewers, the police department and fire department.
Issues on the special council meeting agenda include:
- Final passage of an ordinance authorizing sale of $19 million in NID Limited General Obligation Bonds for Streets of St. Charles at Noah's Ark Infrastructure and Site Improvement Project, Phase Two IMprovements.
- An ordinance authorizing a contract with West Brothers Ford Inc for the purchase of seven 2013 Chevrolet Police Tahoes for $184,261.
- Request to authorize continued interim pay to Mathew Seeds for Interim Management of the IT Department.
