The Linn Valley City Council held its bi-monthly meeting at 7 p.m. on Monday, May 22, 2023, with Council President Robert Suppenbach presiding and all council members present.  Mayor Cindy Smith was absent due to illness.

Joey McLiney, the city’s financial advisor, announced that the bidding on $3,980,000 in General Obligation Temporary Renewal and Improvement Notes will commence on Wednesday, May 24th.  These bonds are being sold in conjunction with funding ongoing costs incurred for the water project.  Based on a motion by Council Member Lew Donelson, the council approved Resolution #123 with a unanimous vote authorizing the bond sale to proceed.  

After approving the minutes from the May 6th and May 8th meetings, the council went into executive session for five minutes on a contractual matter, returning with no action taken. 

City Clerk Karen Siffring informed the council that the budget planning process has begun and requested council members to provide input on any items not listed in the current budget by mid-June. The council has scheduled a budget workshop on June 5th. 

Following this discussion, the council went into a 5-minute executive session on legal matters related to the annexation of the 139 acres recently purchased for the wastewater project.  Now that the land has been purchased, it must be annexed to legally become part of the city of Linn Valley.

Public Safety Director Corey Murrison requested the council to consider drafting a noise ordinance for the city.  It was agreed that further study of the issue by the council is needed because there are concerns about the enforcement of such an ordinance.

In Smith’s absence, Donelson presented Ordinance #248 for consideration by the council.  This ordinance, proposed by Smith, concerns the establishment of temporary regulations for recreational vehicles on R-1 Lots (building lots) within city limits. The ordinance would set specific time periods when RV’s and/or camping trailers could be stored or parked outside of permanent structures on R-1 Lots.  Several council members expressed concerns about the proposed ordinance, including the difficulty in enforcing its provisions. Council Member Brenda Muncy stated that Linn Valley is a recreational community and that this may be a POA issue, and Donelson stated that the council will need more time to consider potential effects of such an ordinance.
