Some revisions to the city of Owenton’s zoning regulations could be back on the table.

The Northern Kentucky Area Development District had proposed the adjustments to the current regulations in the late 1990s. The changes proposed by the A.D. district would reflect some of the changes that have happened across the city.

According to Owenton City Clerk Laura Aldridge, the Owenton City Council never voted on the changes when they were originally proposed.

The council met April 20 and is waiting for the A.D. district to examine the ordinance so changes can be made.

Discussion on the ordinance will resume once the ordinance has been received from the A.D.  district.

Owenton Mayor David “Milkweed” Wotier said during the meeting that he plans to bid out a contract with the city’s current trash company, Collection Services Inc., of Northern Kentucky.

Wotier said he plans to bid the contract out this fall.

Councilman Robert “Casey” Ellis said he would like to see a recycling plan as part of any bids received.

The council voted Feb. 2 to take action on a purple house at 125 East Perry Street.

Wotier said the council planned to foreclose on the house because of the condition of the house and an unwillingness to fix it up.

The council was told by Owenton City Attorney Mark Cobb during the April 20 meeting that a complaint had been prepared but no good address had been located on the property owners to serve the complaint.

The Owenton City Council will meet again at 7 p.m. on May 4.
