Mo- tion carried unanimously. Mayor opened Public Hearing on the proposed economic development agree- ment with Warren County Economic Development Corporation at 6:50 p.m. Rosien noted no written or oral comments had been received. (Editor's note: The location contained in the publication had incorrectly stated that the hearing would be held at the library. The change in venue was duly posted at the library and the time delayed to 6:45 p.m. from 6:30 p.m. to ensure travel time to the correct venue for anyone wishing to speak to this topic.) George Meineke, 8389 Arthur Trail, asked how the $200,000 per year was arrived at. He thinks that is a lot of money. Oliver explained that the agreement is an aggregate of $200,000 over 5 years. It is not per year. Erika Isley, 3086 S Orilla Rd, asked what was paid last year. Oliver said around $37,0O0. Tom Greteman, 5237 Clearwater Drive, stated Norwalk is not far away from need- ing its own Economic Development Commission and asked if the Resolution can be amended by future councils. He also expressed whetherTIF obligation is a good funding source and suggested the City evaluate how long TIF resources would last. Oliver said an analysis of the TIF is currently underway. Lloyd Carlson, 8832 Woedmayr Circle, asked what the current $1 per month on the water bill is being used for. Oliver said that money had been used for fire- works, for economic development purposes. Dave Hixenbaugh, 4903 Lakewood Drive, questions whetherTIF money can be used in this way for economic development. Dougherty answered that attorneys specializing in TIF drafted the proposed agreement. Bdan Baker, 3628 Prairie Sage Drive, asked who the city of Des Moines relied on for their legal advice in the franchise fee case. Dougherty answered that it was their city attorney. Murillo asked that Oliver check to see how Norwalk uses TIF in comparison to other cities. Mayor closed the Public Hearing at 7:21 p.m. Motion by Sylvester and seconded by Leto to table adoption of Resolution approving an economic development support agreement with the Warren County Economic Development Commission (WCEDC) until the Septem- ber 19, 2013 council meeting. RC passed unanimously. Mayor opened Public Hearingon proposed zoning changes to add automotive repair as a special use in the C-4 zoning district at 7:37 p.m. Rosien noted that no written or oral comment had been received. No one present wished to speak, the Public Hearing was continued along with consideration of proposed Ordi- nance amending the Zoning Code of Ordinances of the City of Norwalk, Iowa, Section 17.10.120 C-4, Old Town Business District, by providing automotive re- pair as a special use in the C-4 zoning district at a future council meeting. Second reading of an Ordinance amending the zoning Code of Ordinances of the City, of Norwalk, Iowa, Sections 17.04.040 definitions; 17.10.110 C-2, community commercial district and 17.10.110 C-3, highway service com- mercial district, by establishing a definition for automotive repair and pro- riding automotive repair as a principal permitted use in the C-2 and C-3 zoning districts failed for lack of a motion. The proposed Ordinance is de- feated. Motion by Sylvester and seconded by Murillo to pass the third reading of Ordi- nance No. 13-013 to amend the Code of Ordinances of the City of Norwalk, low'a, 2010, by addition of Chapter 169 Rental Housing Code, regarding housing codes, providing for regular rental inspections, rental inspections upon receipt of complaint, certification of inspected housing, issuance of rental pemtita and collection of inspection fees and registration of all rental units within the corporate limits of the City of Norwalk, Iowa. RC passed unanimously. Motion t~j Muriilo and seconded by Sylvester to pass the third reading of Ordi- narme No. 13-014 to amend the Code of Ordinance of the City of Norwalk, iowa, 2010, Chapter 177, by adopting provisions pertaining to rental con- care and feeding of a bowl of Friendship Bread Start- er Dough. Looking back I can't decide if it was more like having a pet, a baby, or a nuclear reactor in my kitchen. This dough was to be kept on the counter for TEN DAYS! Now I'm no baking expert (my family will confirm that), but I do know leaving food on tile counter for ten days isn't a normally accepted health practice. But the friend who offered me the dough let me taste some of the bread she'd made with it. It was delicious. I took the dough. I knew she would ask me how my bread turned out. She might even want some. I definitely wanted some. So for ten days, the Friendship Bread Starter Dough ruled my life. On Days 1-3, I stirred it gen- tly, as directed, and later in the day, "burped" the bowl to let out some of the excess gases. Each time, my dough smelled a little more like a post-prom par- tywithout a chaperone. " On Day 4, I "fed" my dough more milk, flour and sugar. A wise person would have resisted the urge to substitute. But there I was using skim milk for whole milk and whole-wheat flour for white flour. I guess I was trying to make a healthier snack for my trashcan, be- cause that's where it all wound up. But I'm getting ahead Of myself. On Day 6--or rather Night 6, the middle of Night 6, to be exact--a sound erupted from our kitchen. "There's someone out there," I whispered to my husband. "Ya," he said, "someone wants to steal your starter dough." Clearly, he was jealous of all the time I'd been spend- ing with it. There was no intruder. The plastic bowl I'd stored my starter dough in had blown its lid into the liv- ing room. And despite my loving care, it began to do it daily. Finally Day 10 arrived.
