Deer Management

As previously reported by Patch, It's the second half of a two-year deer management plan approved by aldermen in October, 2011 that uses sharpshooting as the only method of reducing the deer population. As in years past, the culling will begin in December.

Solar Panels

After being continued for a number of weeks, a vote could also come Monday night on a proposed solar panel ordinance for the City of Town and Country.

As previously reported by Patch, the City of Town and Country is considering an ordinance that would put guidelines in place for residents who want to install solar energy systems.  

The proposed plan would allow resident's to install two types of solar panels, roof mounted and ground, but the city prefers the roof mounted. It also requires homeowners to obtain a conditional use permit to install the panels and that's where some residents and homeowners see a problem.

City Budget

The Town and Country Board of Aldermen is examining the city's proposed 2013 fiscal year budget.

As previously reported by Patch, City Financial Director Betty Cotner presented the proposed Fiscal Year 2013 budget to aldermen prior to the last board of aldermen meeting on Oct. 22. Cotner said the city's total budgeted expenditures is $16,504,160 and total revenues is $14,090,700 for FY 2013. Monday is the first reading of this bill. A vote could come at the Nov. 26 board of aldermen meeting.

New Maryville Building

Aldermen are also set to discuss a final site development plan for a new building on the Maryville University Campus. According to documents included in this article, the school wants to build a three-story, 87,500 square foot building to be used to house the School of Health Professions. The new building would replace the current Duchesne Residence Hall that is set to be demolished. A parking lot will also be built as part of the site plan. Monday is the first reading of this bill. A vote could come at the Nov. 26 board of aldermen meeting.
