Burger joint's fate on council's plate
The Porterville City Council on Tuesday will consider revoking or modifying a conditional use permit issued to the developer of a drive-through restaurant that was constructed in a manner inconsistent with the approved plans.
The newly-constructed building on the southeast corner of Putnam Avenue and Leggett Street is expected to be the future home of a second Red Onion eatery.
On March 5, the council conducted a public hearing on the matter. After the hearing, the council requested that the developer, Mary McClure, submit plans representing proposed corrections to the approved plans showing changes in the building elevations and site layout, so that some solution could be defined, a report prepared by city staff states.
As of Friday afternoon, McClure had not submitted revised plans or elevations to represent a possible resolution.
Also on Tuesday:
- A consent item, matters not typically pulled for separate discussion unless requested by a council member or member of the public, to accept a $69,640 state grant and increase the Porterville Police Department’s sworn staffing levels from 62 to 63 positions, effective July 1.
According to a staff report, the money will be used to pay for a full-time officer that will be assigned to the Post Release Community Supervision program.
The council is set to meet at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in the council chambers at City Hall, 291 N. Main St.
