A special Horseshoe Bend City Council meeting was held April 22 to adopt an ordinance authorizing a deferred compensation plan for city employees.
Sally Pohl, recorder/treasurer, explained that CitiStreet is now finished signing up the employees for the pension plan changes. Pohl was informed that an ordinance would be required and since the first payroll deductions will be made May 3, this ordinance needed to be adopted immediately.
A second item was added to the agenda authorizing the city right-of-way to be used.
Mayor Bob Spear reported that a resident has plans to build a new home in Marina Village #1 on E-Tri Lakes Drive and it is necessary for their drain field to be placed across the street on land they own.
The Building Permit Committee and the Planning Commission has approved the construction of the home; however, they do not have the authority to grant permission for the homeowner to place part of their lines in the street right-of-way.
After discussion from councilman George Williamson it was decided to grant permission with the stipulation there would be no expense to the city of any liability on the part of the city at any time in the future.
