City of Seward,Alaska City Council Minutes <br /> August 14, 2017 Volume 40, Page 255 <br /> added that the lot, itself, was not square and had some pre-existing drainage issues on it, both <br /> concerns the contractor was willing to work with. <br /> Notice of the public hearing being posted and published as required by law was noted and the public <br /> hearing was opened. <br /> Laura Schneider said she and her husband had recently moved to Seward and decided they <br /> wanted to put down roots. They owned Exit Marine, LLC. <br /> No one else appeared to address the Council and the public hearing was closed. <br /> Squires questioned the wording which related to hazardous materials; noting the lease <br /> language did not allow for the use of hazardous materials. <br /> Long said this was a standard clause on every lease,and asked for the opportunity to research <br /> this matter and confer with the attorney before changing the language on this lease because it could <br /> potentially impact every other lease currently in place. <br /> Keil suggested adding the word"improper"before the use of hazardous materials,but Long <br /> still wanted to have the time to review language. Earnhart agreed with Long and wanted to do more <br /> research,but added that the intent of this lease language as it was not to prohibit operations,but to <br /> avoid long-term storage or dumping on the property. <br /> At council's behest, administration agreed to review all leases for this hazardous language. <br /> Squires said he did not want to inhibit business,but rather wanted to protect businesses and <br /> allow them to conduct their business. He was concerned that the language as it was currently written <br /> did not provide for that intent, but instead clearly stated that hazardous material was prohibited. <br /> Earnhart and administration agreed to create a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) <br /> between the City Manager and the leaseholder to allow for this clarification. <br /> Motion Passed Unanimous <br /> Resolution 2017-043,Recommending Kenai Peninsula Borough Approval Of The City Owned <br /> Fourth Of July Creek Subdivision, Seward Marine Industrial Center (SMIC), Exit Marine <br /> Replat; Creating A New Lot To Be Known As Lot 4, Block 4, Exit Marine Replat, Located <br /> Within The Industrial Zoning District. <br /> Motion (Keil/Casagranda) Approve Resolution 2017-043 <br /> City Planner Jackie Wilde said the Planning and Zoning Commission held a regular <br /> meeting on July 18,2017,and approved the plat in its irregular shape,including the drainage ditch. <br /> Notice of the public hearing being posted and published as required by law was noted and the public <br /> hearing was opened.
