Sturgeon may be growing a bit, and the city office staff a touch less busy.
At least those seemed to be two of the topics of the Sturgeon Board of Aldermen’s January 22 meeting.
Mark Perkins of rural Boone County spoke to Mayor Danny Joiner and the aldermen regarding his desire to build six new homes in Sturgeon.
The homes will be located on Sturgeon’s north side along the west side of North Ruby Street, locally referred to as the old Proctor Place, said Sturgeon City Clerk Donna Tracy.
According to the meeting’s draft minutes, Perkins told the aldermen he plans to build six new homes. Each would have three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a two-car garage.
He was instructed to contact Mike Jacoby, president of the Sturgeon Planning and Zoning Commission. A public hearing on the development is scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 21 at Sturgeon City Hall.
Regarding the city office, the aldermen voted in favor of changing the city’s building permit process.
From now on, to obtain a Sturgeon building permit, interested parties must visit Boone County Government Building in Columbia, located on 801 East Walnut, Room 315 to fill out their building permit and pay for the building permit there.
