A Wake Village resident will soon be able to shelter her cars from rain and hail storms.
Wake Village City Council members agreed Monday to grant Wake Village resident Kathleen White a variance to part of a municipal zoning ordinance, which will allow her to build a metal roof carport at her home in the 400 block of Carroll Avenue.
Wake Village Mayor Sheryl Collum said that White, who has lived there since 1984, wants to protect her cars from hail storms.
Following a public hearing on the proposed variance, at which no one spoke, council members agreed to White's request to construct the carport.
In other business, the council agreed to allow councilmember Brad Pearson to continue serving as the city's Mayor Pro Tem for another term.
Following their regular council meeting, council members held a 35-minute executive session for consultation with their Municipal Attorney Mike Brock. Following the closed session, council members returned to open session, but took no official action as a result of the closed session.
Before adjourning the meeting, Collum announced that the city will be holding its second annual Fourth of July fireworks display starting at 6 p.m. at King Park. Fireworks will start at dusk—roughly 9 p.m. Music, entertainment and food vending will start at 6 p.m.
