The Mount Pulaski Zoning Board of Appeals met just before the regular City Council meeting October 23. The following members attended — Loren Holmes (President), George Washbond, Waneta Stephens, Tom Stephens, Dan Phillips, and Charles "Chic" Holmes.

The Hearing was for rezoning a designated portion of the property at 1120 N. Topper Dr. (Vonderlieth Living Center) from R-l (Residential) to B-l (Business) for new pharmacy.

The zoning change was being requested to construct a new building that will house a retail pharmacy and the doctor's office for Springfield Clinic. The new building will be located in the area where the existing gazebo and boulder is located.

The Mount Pulaski Zoning Board of Appeals approved the requested change submitted by Vonderlieth Living Center. The approval was then submitted to the Mount Pulaski City Council.

There was no public objection to the zoning change. Councilmember John Utterback asked about the doctor's office; the Council was told that Vonderlieth Living Center has a lease with Springfield Clinic for the new doctor's office.

The zoning change was approved by the City Council on the motion of Darrell Knauer and John Utterback. On the vote, Andrew Neaville, Matt Bobell, Darrell Knauer, and John Utterback voted yes. Joyce Maxheimer and Pete Howe voted no.
