HURON — A variance to permit the construction of a pole barn shed before a residence is built at 974 28th St. S.W. has been approved by the City Commission.
In their final meeting of the year on Friday, the commission, sitting for the one item as the board of adjustment, approved the request filed by Lauren and Lisa Miner.
Code requires that a principal building/dwelling unit also be located at the property in the large-lot residential district.
In the original application, the Miners said they wanted to build the shed first for storage of materials for the home. They have indicated that construction of the pole barn shed and house will begin within a month of each other.
A condition of the variance is that the building permit for the house must be obtained within six months of completion of the shed.
In other business, commissioners approved second and final reading of an ordinance officially naming the new cul-de-sac being built in the Southtown residential and commercial development south of Coborn’s as Kansas Court Southeast.
Owners of two businesses, ELO Prof LLC and Huron Title Co., recently announced plans to build a new office building on Kansas Court Southeast that they will share.
Commissioners also approved a request to offer Delta Dental as a supplemental benefit for full-time city employees. Participating employees will pay 100 percent of the monthly premiums and there will be no cost to the city.
