Two street intersections may get stop signs in the near future. The first readings of both ordinances are on the agenda at tonight's Brazil City Council meeting.
The council will meet in Council Chambers at City Hall at 7 p.m. Although topics may be added or removed, the following items have been included on the preliminary agenda:
- The second reading for passage of Ordinance 16-2005, to vacate a public alley in Brazil. At the previous meeting, not all property owners could be on hand to express their views about the alley, and Council members planned to investigate the matter further by speaking with citizens residing in the area.
- The first reading of Ordinance 18-2005, to designate a stop street in Brazil. The ordinance is sponsored by Fourth Ward Councilman Bill Lovett and designates John Street at the intersection with Mechanic Street as a stop street. Violators will be subject to a civil penalty of $12.
- The first reading of Ordinance 19-2005, to designate a stop street in Brazil on Leavitt Street at the intersection with Knight Street. Violators will be subject to a civil penalty of $12.
- The first reading of Ordinance 20-2005, which allows for the placement of tables and chairs on National Avenue, between Depot Street and Alabama Street, for the convenience of customers in various food industries along National Avenue.
- The first reading of Ordinance 21-2005, which authorizes the acceptance of credit cards for payment of Brazil utilities account payments and fees, fines and fees, and services to the city.
Regular reports will be heard from Brazil Police Department, Brazil Fire Department, Planning and Administration Office, Public Works Department, Water Department and Wastewater Department.
