|Aldermen turn to housekeeping in first meeting of '08|
One week into the new year, the West Monroe Board of Aldermen took care of some routine matters Tuesday night at its regular meeting, which Mayor Dave Norris described as housekeeping.
On the agenda for the board of aldermen meeting were a number of measures aimed at keeping the city of West Monroe up-to-date on agreements with other area governments as well as with the Environmental Protection Agency.
Also at the meeting, aldermen approved an ordinance redesignating property on Wellerman Road from "open land" to B-1, or transitional business, in anticipation of a new nursing home project planned for the site.
Norris said the parcel of land at the corner of Wellerman Road and Jana Drive would be used to house an inpatient residential facility for the elderly in addition to an inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation facility.
The planned facility will be operated by the Comm Care Corp., which currently operates Ridgecrest Nursing Home in West Monroe.
Norris told the board that the new facility would replace Ridgecrest. The current site of Ridgecrest Nursing Home would be sold or donated, Norris said.
Among other business considered by aldermen was a measure to grant the mayor authority to establish rules and regulations at Restoration Park.
City Attorney Doug Caldwell said West Monroe currently has rules in place at Kiroli Park and Lazarre Park, but attempts to enforce similar rules at Restoration Park have fallen short because of a lack of an ordinance to enforce them.
Caldwell pointed out most of the infractions at the park were limited to four-wheelers on trails and animals off of leashes, but he warned the problem could escalate without an ordinance to enforce the rules.
"If they can't back up the rules, then there's no way to keep it under control," Caldwell said.
Under the ordinance adopted Tuesday, West Monroe police officers will be empowered to enforce rules established by the city.
Caldwell said the city plans to institute the regulations currently in use at Lazarre Park at Restoration Park.
