Members of the Chatsworth City Council approved a rezoning request during a brief monthly meeting held Monday. Councilmen Brad Rowe and Fred Welch were not in attendance.

The request came from Johnny Waters who wished to rezone 15.45 acres south of Hill Street and west of Tenth Avenue from Low Density Residential (R-1) to Residential Agriculture (R-A).

The Planning Commission had recommended approval of the request.

Frank Adams, representing the Keep Chatsworth Murray Commission, requested approval from city council members to participate in the Cigarette Litter Prevention program.

The KCMB received two $2,000 grants for the program.

Support from the city council for the 2014 Cigarette Litter Prevention Program Task Force ould come in a number of ways but particularly helps in the promotion of the program.

The KCMB will provide portable ashtrays and brochures as well as other literature materials to get smokers to use appropriate receptacles for cigarette butts and cigar tips.

The program launched the first of this month.

Mayor Dan Penland also signed a proclamation designating June as Cigarette Litter Prevention Month 2014.
