City considers giving special treatment

The levies held Tuesday night as two votes by McMinnville officials ended in stalemates. Under consideration was breaking city policy and paying for a property owner’s stormwater abatement measures.“To my knowledge, in the 16 years I’ve been with the city, the city has never done this type of work for a commercial or retail entity,” said McMinnville Public Works assistant director Brad Hennessee. “Stormwater abatement should be included in the construction costs, not paid for by the city.”Under construction is a new office by Dr. Jeffrey McKinley that will be located on the corner of Caldwell and Mullican streets.
