Mayor Pat Jones opened the Orangeville City Council meeting Jan. 10, at 7:30 p.m. after a prayer and a pledge of Allegiance. Jonathon Fauver representing Four Corners Mental Health and Jeff Barney representing Alcoholics Anonymous appeared before the City Council to request the use of the Orangeville City Community Center for weekly AA Meetings and to have a partial waiver of the fee charged.

Fauver said AA by its charter has to be unaffiliated with any agencies and programs thereby keeping any information given out in AA meetings confidential. Barney had asked Jonathon Fauver for help in finding a facility where weekly AA meetings could be held for those individuals needing help from AA.

Fauver said, having AA meetings would be beneficial in Orangeville as there is a lack of AA meetings generally in the area. We need to have people attending AA, AARP or NA meetings to help them as they go through our Drug Court and for longer phases of the substance abuse program.

Mayor Pat Jones asked Barney about how many people would be attending these meetings. He replied, he expected no more than five to 10 people one hour per night. If we held a meeting for all those that needed it, we would have to schedule the Delta Center. My wish is to help people.

The Mayor suggested the Orangeville City Hall would be appropriate for such meetings.

Barney said, the tradition of the AA is that each AA group is to be fully self-supporting from contributions. The group has to sustain itself to purchase the book for each member and half of the remaining money would be given to the city for the use of the facility. The AA organization declines outside contributions.

Fauver explained the request for the waiver of the fee to use the building by acknowledging that the group would give to the city half of whatever money they collect in those meetings. That amount would be un-specified. Fifty percent of the contributions will go to purchase materials and the other 50 percent would go to the city.

The Mayor asked would this be for alcohol abuse only. Barney replied, I am going to run the meeting on a 12-step basis for drugs and alcohol. Even for those that have a gambling problem can be helped. The root of the problem is the same for each.

Fauver said, The Four Corners Mental Health treatment programs run from Monday through Thursday. Then Friday, Saturday and Sunday there are no treatment programs available. The AA meetings will help fill in the weekend gap for struggling addicts.

After some discussion by the Orangeville City Council it was decided to make the Orangeville City Hall meeting room available for the weekly AA meeting. The details will be worked out later with the city for a Friday or Saturday night. This program helps keep people out of jail and control their problem.

The Orangeville City Council then heard from Dennis Tuttle Orangeville's Zoning Administrator concerning the amending of the Animal Control Ordinance and the City Code Kennels Regulations and Requirements Permitted Conditional Uses in a Commercial Zone. The last Planning and Zoning Meeting held a public hearing on the subject of kennels in a commercial zone. The issue debated was, whether or not to allow kennels in other zones in the city besides RR-1 land on the edge of the city that has an acre or more of property. Two citizens came to the hearing to voice their concerns about the noise and smell. At that meeting Jason Mills explained how he planned to build the kennel to subdue both the noise and smell.

The Planning and Zoning Commission made up some recommended changes to the Orangeville's Code and recommended the City Council adopt these necessary changes to the City Code. The Planning and Zoning Commission's recommendation in commercial areas is for Commercial Kennels only.

This amended Kennel Code would allow for a minimum of four and a maximum of 10 dogs and relates to Commercial Kennels being used for raising, breeding, housing and selling dogs.

The Code states that kennels in commercial areas are subject to the following conditions: A minimum of one acre is required, and the kennel will maintain four and not more than 10 dogs over the age of six months and comply with Orangeville City provisions and standards specifications of the Animal Control Ordinance. That Ordinance includes kennels and how they are to be built and maintained.

Mills had requested this Zoning Code change so that he could install a dog kennel in a Commercial Zone behind his auto repair shop on Highway 29 in Orangeville.

The Orangeville City Council then passed a resolution to amend Orangeville's City Code Kennels Regulations and Requirements Permitted Conditional Use. They then adopted the Ordinance permitting Kennels in a Commercial Zone.

By these changes Jason Mills will be permitted to install his kennel in an Orangeville Commercial Zone. Dennis Tuttle Orangeville Zoning Administrator also reported that the Planning and Zoning Commission had approved two business licenses at their last meeting. Randall Stilson was approved for an occupation Business License on 115 South and 100 East in Orangeville. The business will be called the M and P Pawn and Second Hand Store. It will be a premises occupation.

Joe Jensen also was approved for a Business License. This will be a home occupation license in the John Davis house at 165 North 200 West. Joe would be doing Handyman work from the house.

One of the last items discussed by the council was a list of requests for CIB money and to set priorities.
