Council Holds Public Hearing on Rezoning Request; Two Items Moved to Second Reading

Posted on May 25, 2021

Kenton City Council took care of a light agenda at its Monday night meeting.

Two ordinances, one to vacate an alley and the other to authorize the safety service director to advertise for bids for rock salt for the public works department, were introduced under new business. They were sent on for a second reading.

The city was notified that Ports Petroleum, which operates Fuel Mart on South Detroit Street, has applied for a liquor permit with the Ohio Department of Commerce, Division of Liquor Control.

Since the business is located approximately 380 feet from Waterworks Park, the Division of Liquor Control is required to notify the city, which has 30 days to object or request a hearing.

Also at the meeting, Hardin County Commissioner Roger Crowe thanked the city for its help in installing the veteran’s banners around the city.

A public hearing was held prior to the regular meeting on a rezoning request for 950 Kohler Street.

The request is to change zoning classification from R-1, a one or two family residence district to B-1, a neighborhood business district.
