“If Ottumwa Veterinary Clinic were to vacate that property and if someone else were to come in within a year, they could apply for a conditional use permit for another type of retail use as it stands right now within the existing footprint of the structure,” Shafer said.
The council will also:
• Hold a public hearing on the status of the $513,000 Community Development Block Grant the city received for the $1.1 million sewer separation project on the area between Kettle Creek and Richmond Avenue, Ferry Street and Chester Avenue. Approximately 90 percent of the project is finished.
• Vote to approve the Ashpalt Street Repair Program 2013, which will place overlays on 10 streets and alleys throughout the city, totaling nearly $880,000.
The council will meet at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in council chambers at City Hall. The meeting will air live on GO-TV, cable channel 6.
