KINGWOOD \u2013 Mayor Jean Guillot apologized Tuesday to Royce Larew for\u00a0 asking to have Larew removed from the Board of Zoning Appeals because of a note\u00a0 left at city hall.\r\nLarew told council he did not know he was a member of the board. \u201cI was never contacted that I was on the board,\u201d he told council. \u201cI believe I should have been notified.\u201d Larew knew that he was under consideration for a spot on the board.\r\n\r\n\u201cI apologize. That was our mistake,\u201d Guillot said.\r\nAt council\u2019s last meeting, Guillot asked to have Larew removed, saying Larew did not respect city ordinances.\r\nAs previously reported, a door hanger, dated 11:02 a.m. May 7,\u00a0 was hung on the door of a Main Street home. By \u201cconcerns\u201d was written, \u201cGrass need cleaned off sidewalk. Thank you. City Supervisor.\u201d\r\nOn May 9, the door hanger was found in the drop off box at city hall. On the back was written, \u201cI cleaned up the sidewalk at ... Main Street. Next time you have a problem, don\u2019t trespass on private property call me at my office 789-2611 Thanks Royce Larew.\u201d\r\n\r\nLarew told council Tuesday he did not appreciate finding the notice on the door. \u201cI am tired of being singled out,\u201d he said. \u201cI was going to sweep the grass off the sidewalk. I mowed the grass the night before and was going to sweep it away the next morning.\u201d\r\nHe told The Dominion Post that, if council did not want him on the board, then so be it. Council voted unanimously Tuesday to remove\u00a0 Larew from the Zoning Board of Appeals.\r\nIn other discussions, council talked about ways to help residents with sidewalk repair. Councilman Michael Lipscomb said if a sidewalk needs to be replaced the city could break it up and cart away the concrete. \u201cPeople have a hard time getting rid of concrete,\u201d he said.\r\nGuillot agreed. \u201cIt would be a big plus if we could meet the people halfway,\u201d he said.\r\n\r\nLipscomb said some\u00a0 sidewalks that need repair have fire hydrants located on them.\u00a0 \u201cWe don't want people jack hammering around them,\u201d he said. \u201cThat could cause problems.\u201d\r\n\r\nRecorder Bill Robertson said he searched online for an ordinance that would address the situation but has not found one. Lipscomb said he would review the current ordinance and see if it can be amended.\r\n\r\nCouncil also discussed contacting the W.H. Drane Company about codifying city ordinances. The company, located in Beachwood, Ohio, provides ordinance codification and related publishing services to municipalities in\u00a0 Ohio and West Virginia. Lipscomb said he would contact the company and get prices and more information about its services.\r\n\r\nLauren Larew told council her neighbors on Seemont Drive have two ducks. She asked council \u201cto look into it.\u201d\r\n\r\nCouncil\u00a0 discussed changing\u00a0 the ordinance governing signs and banners. \u201cWhen the ordinance was done, we didn't have all the technology we have today,\u201d Guillot said, referring to\u00a0 lighted and movable signs that can distract drivers.\r\n\r\n\u201cWe need to make sure banners and signs don't obstruct drivers\u2019 vision when they are pulling out,\u201d Robertson\u00a0 added.\r\n\r\nQuestions about grass thrown on tombstones during mowing at the city owned Maplewood Cemetery\u00a0 were discussed.\r\n\r\nCouncilman Dick Shaffer said\u00a0 families should be cleaning them.\r\n\r\n\u201cI don't believe we should keep burying them,\u201d Guillot said. \u201cWe should take some responsibility. It looks bad when you go to the cemetery and see dead, yellow grass all over the tombstones.\u201d\r\n\r\nRobertson said workers could\u00a0 remove some of the\u00a0 grass with a leaf blower.\u00a0 No other action was taken.\r\nCouncil\u2019s next meeting will be June 4\u00a0 due to the\u00a0 election.
