SP Village Council considers possible zoning violation

A potential zoning violation was on the agenda for South Point Council.

The council went over a violation of a zoning order involving RDI Construction, where someone from RDI bought an unused lot next to his commercial lot to use for storage, although the lot that was purchased is in a residential zone.

“According to our solicitor (Randall Lambert), we’ve cited him and asked him to move the material that he has on residential property,” South Point Mayor Ron West, said. “It’s nothing dangerous, but it’s an eyesore to the neighbors.”

A village golf cart ordinance is going through its finishing touches before being brought up at the next meeting in March.

The council also went over possible new ways to let residents know about boil water advisories that will be moved to next month’s meeting as well, although South Point fixes water issues very quickly, West said.

Council members Mary Cogan, Chris Smith and David Moore will make up a committee that will work on the pay scale for village employees.

The village of South Point is currently in the process of setting up the village hall permanently as well as cleaning out the other side and getting it ready to rent.

“We would like to have a family physician move in there,” West said. “It already has exam rooms.”

South Point Village Council meetings are on the first Tuesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. at the new village hall at 415 Solida Road in the former Quality Care Nursing Services building next to FoodFair.
