HAVEN, Kan. — The Haven City Council took time to address two special use permits connected to a vacant lot at 22 Stadium Drive. Ryan and Tiffany Warden had requested the permits to place a 22’ X 25’ lawn shed on the northwest corner of the property, and to build a personal softball facility.
The planning commission approved the shed request but recommended that the council deny the softball facility. Most of the council agreed that the softball field might not be ideal in that spot. Ryan Warden said that he would be willing to demolish the two old barns on the property and build the facility over that same area.
The motion for the new shed was approved by the council on a 3-2 vote and denied the softball facility on a 4-1 vote.
Also Monday, the council approved a bid from Derek’s Tree and Stump Service to remove a number of trees in the city at a cost of $2,700 and the council further discussed a certain sign that is on a resident's yard.
City Clerk Leslie Atherton asked if the Council wished to expend dollars for the City Attorney to pursue researching First Amendment rights further.
The council was in consensus to not pursue the matter any further.
