Falls City amends rules for ‘adult’ establishments

FALLS CITY -- Those who violate provisions of Falls City’s rules pertaining to sexually oriented businesses can now be fined $2,000 -- four times the previous $500 penalty. This was one of three amendments to the city’s zoning ordinance approved by the Falls City City Council at its June 13 meeting.

The second change to the ordinance also includes listing “sexually oriented business” as an authorized use under the “general business zoning district.” The third adds an appendix with a plethora of definitions.

Within the city limits of Falls City, a sexually oriented business cannot be located within 1,000 feet of a church, school, child-care facility, the boundary of a residential district, a public park, the property line of a lot devoted to residential use, an establishment where alcoholic beverages are sold, or another sexually oriented business.

Also during the meeting, the council approved as presented the fiscal year 2011 audit. The audit report, presented by Wayne Beyer of Pleasanton-based Beyer & Co., stated the city’s financial statements presented fairly in all material respects.

The report indicates that the city finished the 2011 fiscal year with a combined ending fund balance of $236,498, which was an increase of $27,772 over the previous year.

The cover letter to the audit report contained the following recommendations:

•Utilities: Late fees were assessed at a lesser amount than what the city policy allows, which is being blamed on an error related to a computer-system conversion. The issue has since been resolved.

•Municipal court: Generic, un-numbered receipts were being used, which did not contain entity identification information. It is recommended that the court use numbered or computer-generated receipts.

The report also noted a control deficiency with regard to the segregation of duties, which often is not possible because of the city’s small staff -- only the city secretary and a clerk are assigned to work in City Hall.

“During the time under audit a single individual was responsible for reconciling bank accounts, preparing payroll, preparing accounts payable, and maintaining the general ledger,” according to the report. “To the extent possible, duties should be segregated to serve as a check and balance on the employee’s integrity and to maintain the best control system as possible.”

In other business, the council:

•Voted to apply for a $275,000 Texas Community Development Block Grant from the Texas Department of Agriculture’s Office of Rural Affairs. If the city is awarded the grant, the funds will be used to fund sewer-system improvements, with Falls City being responsible for providing $13,750 in matching funds.

•Voted to hire LNV Engineering and Langford Community Management Services for engineering and management administration services, respectively, with respect to a recently awarded disaster relief fund grant that will fund improvements to the city’s water system.

•Reached a consensus to authorize City Attorney Acie McAda to solicit requests for a proposal related to an oil and natural gas lease for city-owned property.
