Grayville Resident Cries Fowl at Council Meeting

Resident Len Thompson says chickens and ducks are creating a nuisance and in violation of an ordinance in Grayville.  Thompson appeared before the City Council Monday evening.

Chief Hatcher of the Grayville PD says he’s examined and measured the chicken coop in question and says that the structure is within legal parameters.  Furthermore, neighbors the Davis’ and the Nessler’s signed off on the coop and haven’t expressed any complaints.  City Attorney Jay Walden says the language of the ordinance however does give Thompson a potentially valid claim.

Ultimately, Council decided to table the complaint for now while they re-check measurements.

In other business, Council granted a TIF request for Kranko’s, a body art, gift shop and tattoo parlor as well as a Revolving Loan request for $7,500.  We also learned there is interest in the former IGA building, though Mayor Travis Thompson says the potential suitors wished to remain anonymous at this time.  He says they’re interested in the property but trying to gauge what kind of assistance they could get from the city before moving forward.

Additionally, Javen Cox was on hand to request assistance from the city in terms of a financial request as well as parade permits and road closures.  A donation of $20,000 was granted as were the permits and road closure requests.  Grayville Days will be held September 1st through 4th.
