Mr. Hickman asked about the large shipping crates behind the fire station on State Route 4 and
doesn’t look very nice. Mr. Brock stated that these are going to be used as a training facility.
Mr. Frentzel’s understanding is that these will be painted more of a neutral color and perhaps
will not be as noticeable.

This looks dangerous.

Fun fact. Shipping containers are sent to America full of junk then abandoned. It’s cheaper to construct new ones in China than ship them back to China.
Go down to where Mosteller dead ends into Cresentville. There are hundreds of them stacked twice as high.
I’m going to stack 5 of them in my back yard and see how quick the city comes knocking.

What concerns me the most about the the ugly shipping containers is how can we go forward enforcing code violations on residents when the city is stacking shipping containers behind the fire station. I can see someone saying sure I’ll get rid of all those cars right after you get rid of all those shipping containers. I think the the code enforcement officer will have a much harder time getting residents to comply now. From my understanding he has a hard enough time already.

Maybe they are going to refurbish them to use for "temporary offices, etc" for all the new city employees????

Correct me if Im wrong. But I think the code enforcement is based on the 'Tattle' system. So, if no one complains, nothing gets done. Therefore, in reality, there is no real code enforcement.

Mr.  Hickman  referenced  the  shipping  containers  and  Mr.  Chesar  advised  that  those  were  
not addressed  in  the  current  updates  before  Council.   Mr.  Hickman  stated  that  there  are 
 shipping containers on University Boulevard the same as the ones behind the fire station and felt 
that we need to address it before we see them throughout the City.   Mr. Hickman asked if the 
shipping containers  are  regulated  for  other  zoning  districts.    Mr.  Chesar  explained  that 
 no  shipping containers  are  permitted  in  the  rear  yard  of  residential  districts.   Mr.  
Hickman  is  looking  for

regulations  for  permanent  shipping  containers.     Mr.  Chesar  will  bring  back  the  
shipping containers  and  commercial  vehicles  to  Council.   He  noted  it  takes  approximately 
150  days  to
update the Code.

How about directing the City Manager to get rid of the damn things?
Don't know what they're for, don't care, just would like to see them gone. There is absolutely no good reason for them.
