Rainsville Amends Zoning Ordinance

By Marla Jones, Managing Editor • marla@southerntorch.com

DeKALB COUNTY, Ala. — (Full Video on our Facebook) The Rainsville City Council held their regularly scheduled meeting on Monday, July 1. 

The Council was presented with the 2018 Audit, which can be found on the City’s website.

The Council voted to amend a zoning ordinance pertaining to building permits. Going forward, when remodeling, citizens must purchase a rolloff dumpster or carry to a landfill with debris instead of burying trash on the property.

According to Revenue Officer Matt Crum, builders are making “unapproved landfills” in their backyards. The new measures will stay in compliance with the Alabama Department of Environmental Management’s (ADEM) regulations.

In other business, the City:

  • Purchased 350 garbage cans in the amount of $16,792
  • Purchased 20 4-yard dumpsters in the amount of $11,900
  • Empowered the Mayor to sign a garbage pick-up agreement with the Town of Geraldine
  • Approved the replacement of tile on Country Club Lane in the amount of $2,000
  • Purchased a utility trailer for the Field of Dreams in the amount of $1,600
  • Approved Resolution 07-01-2019 to surplus a 2007 Dodge Durango from the Rainsville Police Department
  • Accepted a $19,517 bid from Twin City Used Auto Sales for a 2014 Ford Explorer (funding as follows: $16,000 from insurance money from wrecked vehicle and $3,000 from savings earmarked for the police department)

The next meeting of the Rainsville City Council will be held on Monday, July 15 at 5pm with a work session beginning at 4:15pm.
