Mason City council approves interim permits to allow outdoor dining, sidewalk sales

first_img TAGS Mason City Iowa Coronavirus Mason City Council MASON CITY — The City Council in Mason City last night approved changes of an ordinance that would allow interim encroachment and sidewalk service area permits to help businesses during the pandemic.City Code allows for encroachment permits, which permit private outdoor use of city-owned property, and sidewalk service area permits, which allow private outdoor use of adjacent sidewalks.The current process for allowing such things as outdoor dining or sidewalk sales is typically somewhat lengthy and onerous, and City Administrator Aaron Burnett says while each application is unique, the use of interim permits would allow more rapid deployment of outdoor business activities for business owners seeking quick methods to return to business while remaining health conscious. “Some of them will be fairly easy to move through the interim process. Others depending on things like the width of the sidewalk, making sure that it’s not blocking pedestrian passage, making sure we have egress for buildings, things along those lines get a little complicated. It really depends on that application and how quickly that business can provide the information for consideration and approval. It can move very quickly if all the information is together and filed with the office.”Burnett says there has been interest in the interim permits. “We did receive interest from a business with all this discussion. We already received interest from other businesses. I think this will be a useful tool to move things through.”The council approved the ordinance changes, waiving the first and second readings and approving it on the third and final reading to allow the changes to take place as soon as possible. sidewalk sales private outdoor patio use City Administrator Aaron Burnettcenter_img City Council in Mason City Mason City code encroachment permits outdoor dining Mason City COVID-19last_img read more

Champions League: Still work to do, says Tottenham’s Pochettino despite Dortmund win

first_imgTottenham Hotspur still have work to do to reach the next round of the Champions League despite a convincing 3-0 victory over Borussia Dortmund in their last-16 first leg on Wednesday, said coach Mauricio Pochettino.Tottenham stunned the Germans with a goal two minutes after halftime from Korean forward Son Heung-min and struck twice late in the game through Belgian defender Jan Vertonghen, who was deployed in an unusual left wing back role, and substitute Fernando Llorente.”It is a massive, massive performance and effort from my players,” Pochettino told reporters.”My players are heroes. They deserve a lot of praise because their effort this season is amazing.”It is only the first half of the tie — 3-0 is a very good result, but we must go to Dortmund with the idea of winning. It is a very good result but there is a lot of work to do.”The second leg is in Germany on March 5.How Spurs came back strong after a weak first halfTottenham were on the backfoot in the first half against the Bundesliga leaders, who had conceded only two goals in the entire group stage and had the better scoring chances.The Argentine coach said he had to talk to his players at halftime to discuss ways of slowing their opponents down, with Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho wreaking havoc down the wing.”I would not say the team were nervous but the second half was much better. At halftime we showed them a few situations that could have been different,” Pochettino said.advertisement”We tried to help the team make the right decisions and perform in the best way. You need some luck, too. For me it is only the first leg, the first half but it is a very good result.”The result equalled Dortmund’s heaviest away defeat in the Champions League.The Germans also suffered a morale-sapping 3-3 draw against Hoffenheim last week in the Bundesliga after leading 3-0 and were also eliminated from the German Cup by Werder Bremen on penalties.”We played well in the first half, had a couple of chances, We defended really well and played well going forward,” Dortmund coach Lucien Favre said.”In the start of the second half we gave it away. It was a gift. After that we tried to play a bit too hastily and it was very, very difficult for us. After the second goal it was harder to hold on to the ball and create chances.”For Favre and his players it is now back to the drawing board.”There are periods of a season when things aren’t top, top, top. It is what it is. We need to analyse and work hard to avoid and correct these errors.”Also Read | Manchester United face UEFA punishment after fans throw bottle at PSG star Angel Di MariaAlso Read | Roma’s teenage match-winner Nicolo Zaniolo told to stay groundedAlso See:last_img read more
