Fulton city officials will kick off Tuesday's meeting with a 6:30 p.m. work session to discuss the city charter and possible amendments.
The regular meeting starts at 7 p.m. with a proclamation in honor of the Fulton Housing Authority's 60th anniversary and a public hearing for rezoning a half-acre tract just south of 2525 N. Bluff St. (a small apartment complex) from C-3 Planned Commercial to C-2 Commercial.
The entire City Council agenda can be read at fultonmo.org/government/city-council/.
One ordinace slated for its first reading (Bill No. 1540) concerns a grant application for new hangars at the city's Elton Hensley Memorial Airport. If approved, it would authorize the mayor to sign all documents for federal and state assistance.
A memo dated April 19 from city engineer Kyle Bruemmer to Mayor Lowe Cannell states city officials have banked specific federal funds for three years ($150,000 per year) and the city would like to build a new row of T-Hangars. Bruemmer further states there is an ongoing waiting list for hangar space. These hangers and required taxiways will cost $900,000.
"If we award a contract prior to Sept. 30 and construct in 2020, we will have about $690,000 of entitlement funds available," Bruemmer said. "We are applying for an additional $120,000 in state funding to help cover the difference."
The city's match would be about 10 percent. Current hanger rents are $156 per month, generating about $20,000 yearly.
