The Sidney City Council approved two liquor license applications and two zoning applications in its Jan. 11 meeting.

The council approved liquor license for Beans and Steams Coffee House, LLC and Kiersten Richards as the manager of the 610 Glover Road location. Richards purchased Beans and Steams Coffee House from Pat and Sharrell Keane. Her license will allow catering as well as sales at the store.

The council also approved a license for MSW Liquor, LLC, Paul Strommen the contact. The license is for 1500 Illinois Street, the former Two J's location. Strommen said the Two J's name will continue for now, but there are plans to change the name. His license also includes catering.

The council also approved two zoning changes. Broc and Tiffani Dye applied to rezone a tract of land at 2230 Cheyenne County Road 113 from A (Agricultural) to AR (Agriculture Residential). Briand and Mandi Raffelson applied for a zoning change from A to AR for property known as 10940 County Road 20. First reading of both requests was approved. Three readings are required for zoning requests, according to city attorney J. Leef.

The council also approved an agreement with Cranmore Lawn & Pest for herbicide and pesticide service. The contract is for $74,700; $71,135,60 if the City purchases the chemicals early.

Parks Superintendent Tom VonSeggern said the cost increased compared to the last agreement. However, the amount of City land increased by 55 acres, and labor costs increased. Additionally, the city was encouraged by Cheyenne County Weed District supervisor to treat some of the ditches and greenbelts.
