It is recommended by the Zoning Board Committee to adhere to the Fulton Ordinance Code of a 7 foot setback from the lot line.
Action: Rule on variance request.
B. Motion to use General Fund Reserves to repay $49,310.37 to the Fulton Revolving Loan Fund
Summary: During 2006 and 2007 the city used $49,310.37 from the Revolving Loan Fund to pay for site demolition and clean-up at the old JT Cullen property, and for a sewer extension across Route 84 for the Fulton Fire District. DCEO is requiring the city refund these funds back to the Revolving Loan Fund because the city did not receive prior written approval from DCEO for these projects as per state guidelines. Failure to repay the Revolving Loan fund will jeopardize future state grant funds for public infrastructure projects.
