Aldermen also voted to allow a variance to the city sign ordinance so Trinity Lutheran Church can continue using its electronic sign in front of its church just off Clayton Road. The vote had been continued for a number of meetings.

A public hearing was held on the proposal by Covenant Presbyterian Church to build a 19 foot windmill on its property. According to church officials, the windmill will be a teaching tool for elementary students at Covenant Christian School, while providing water for the school’s garden. There were no comments opposing the church's request for a conditional use permit to build the structure. Aldermen will likely vote on the request at the next board meeting.
