Mountain View City Council agreed on Aug. 23 to rezone the former Cedar America property from industrial to general commercial, and to give an across-the-board raise of 50 cents per hour to city employees.
The zoning change was recommended by the planning commission. Zoning Enforcement Officer Rex Vannatter addressed the council saying there was no opposition to changing the zoning. NOACON construction had requested the change on behalf of Meadows Ford, which had purchased the property and plans to relocate the dealership. Vannatter said general commercial zoning would be the appropriate zoning for the area.
The council unanimously agreed to amend the zoning map.
The employee raise was recommended by Mayor Roger Gardner, and the council also raised the starting pay by 50 cents.
Gardner explained the general starting pay will now be $12 per hour. He said some starting pay is higher, depending on if the employee has a CDL, is an equipment operator or has certain experience.
The new pay rate will begin the first pay period in September.
