HOLTS SUMMIT, Mo. — The Board of Alderman will discuss business licensing, dilapidated vehicles and recycling at its meeting tonight.
In January, the board voted to table a discussion on business licensing. A proposed ordinance would introduce different licensing fees for different types of businesses — currently all businesses must pay a flat fee. City staff is asking the aldermen for a final vote on this issue.
Two other bills are up for first reads — a fee increase for utility task vehicle permits and a change in the regulation of dilapidated vehicles.
If passed, the second bill would require any dismantled, nonoperative, wrecked or discarded vehicle be covered with a fitted cover and parked on a surface of asphalt, concrete, rock, brick or gravel. It also allows for the towing of any improperly parked vehicle.
The aldermen will also hear an update on the city's sewer project, a multi-million dollar endeavor to link the city's wastewater management system to Jefferson City. Holts Summit is seeking bids from contractors.
