8 I The Lovell Chronicle I September 25, 2014 M_ABWYN LAY A crowd gathered on Saturday, Sept. 21, in front of the Hyart Theatre to greet Jennifer Snell during her 90- day reveal, which was being filmed locally as part of her participation on the ABC's Extreme Weight Loss television show. Mobile homes on Main Street in topics for public hearing by Byron Council BY BOB RODRIGUEZ Should the state's Ti- tle 11 rulings governing manufactured homes and numerous other land use and development aspects be suspended by the Byron Town Council? That appears to be in the realm of possibility, spurred by a request by Hei- di Brightly for a variance to place a manufactured home on a Main Street site. After considerable discussion in the Town Hall on Thursday night, Sept. 18, the council took the somewhat unusual move to expedite the matter and set Oct. 14 for a public hearing, changing the regu- lar meeting to Oct. 16. Mayor Pam Hopkin- son and the councilors an- ticipate that the hearing topics, especially regard- ing prohibition of manufac- tured homes except in spe- cific zones, will attract a large crowd. Therefore, al- though not yet approved, it's possible that the hear- ing will be held in the audi- torium in the Bryon Recre- ation Center (in the former Byron school) rather than Town Hall. An announce- ment will be made. The quick action to set a public hearing stems from a 30-minute presen- tation by Brightly. She ap- proached the council, which pondered her variance re- quest and then devoted an- other 15 minutes for discus- sion. Brightly told the body several times that manu- factured homes are becom- ing widely accepted by mu- nicipalities and that Byron should take another look at its restriction. "Other towns are not opposing them," she said, "as this is the mobile home age." Some months ago it was indicated by a large number of Byron residents that they want to avoid manufactured homes on Main Street, although a double-wide was allowed during the past couple of years. Observed Council- or Alan Bair, "It has done nothing but improve the ap- pearance of the town." Brightly, accompanied by Edward Diaz, pushed strongly for the council to help accommodate her re- quest. Her plan involves razing an existing older home on Main Street across from the Byron Bar & Grill, adding a foundation and placing a 16-by-32 foot 1998 modular home there. The town has ruled previ- ously that not only must mobiles be placed only in the properly zoned sites, of which there are few on Main Street, but they must measure no less than 24-by- 32 feet. Diaz explained that they plan to add "a huge covered porch" that would take the proposed dwelling well past the required 24 feet. Council discussion me- andered through various possible scenarios and pos- sibilities with the conclu- sion, led by Mayor Pam Hopkinson, to do whatev- er possible to help Bright- ly with her request. The latter will square off with Hopkinson for the position of mayor in the November general election. The mayor and Bair emphasized that the hear- ing will be solely to listen to the pros and cons antic- ipated from the public. The format will be to listen only, not for the mayor and coun- cil to answer questions or comment. During the sub- sequent council meeting the elected officials will work to make a decision based on public input. There will then need to be three read- ings if the various applica- ble ordinances are revised. The public hearing, be- sides manufactured homes, will include the following topics: recreational vehi- cles, manufactured home courts, floodplain district regulations, minimum lot sizes, abandoned vehicles, weed control, offensive rubbish and others. In other matters the council: Approved paying Au- gust bills of $67,780 in- cluding $5,520 as half of the fee for next year's fire- works show during Byron Days, and payroll costs of $19,690. Received a report from Police Chief Frank- ie Rohrer that during Au- gust he handled 45 calls including 34 traffic stops as well as issuing 12 cita- tions for weed and rubbish violations. The council meeting was preceded by a one- hour work session, so no ac- tion was taken. The prima- ry topic, introduced by the mayor, involves charges for existing but unused wa- ter taps, as well as sewer maintenance fees. The out- come of her suggestions to possibly reduce costs to us- ers, with council input, is forthcoming.
