MONTROSE COUNCIL MEETING
FEBRUARY 3, 2005
The Montrose City Council met for Regular Meeting at 7:00 p.m. on the 3rd day of February 2005. Council met at City Hall, 102 S. 2nd St. pursuant to law with Mayor Ronald Dinwiddie presiding and the following Council members present: Brisby, Holland, Junkins, and Slater. Roberts absent.
Ordinance No. 191. Clerk/Treasurer Cirinna told Council the City Attorney, Robert Johnson, recommends deleting item numbers 18-24 and adopting the Uniform Building Code, Uniform Code on Abatement of Dangerous Buildings and the Uniform Fire Code. Council agrees with this and the amended ordinance will be on the March 3, 2005 Agenda. Councilwoman Slater suggested using the word “semi-trailers” be used in the junk vehicle portion of the ordinance. Cirinna will check the Iowa Code regarding use of a semi-trailer without wheels. Dinwiddie says the semi-trailer is not operable on a road anymore; the original use was on-road. Therefore, the semi-trailer would be a nuisance.

Uniform Bldg., Dangerous Bldg., & Fire Codes. Moved by Holland, seconded by Slater to adopt ordinances on the Uniform Building Code, Uniform Code on Abatement of Dangerous Buildings, and Uniform Fire Code. All ayes. Motion declared carried.
Councilman Jeff Junkins wants to know if the City should put gravel in the alley between Mark Conlee and Glenn Van Pelt. After some discussion, Council says it would have to be graveled by the City because it is Glenn Van Pelt’s only entrance to his home.
