Altamont City Council members Monday decided to renew their lease for the restaurant building at Schmidt Park with El Rancherito.

One change is being made to the lease; rather than increasing penalty for late payments on the lease by a percentage of the amount due, it was decided to set the late penalty at $200/month. The change will be effective April 1.

The Altamont council also heard from Becky Turner, who lives on Wurl Lane. The City closed the roadway, and it is no longer a thru street, but Turner said some are still using the roadway as if it was. Turner said instead of using a turnaround at the end of the roadway, people are using her driveway and continuing on their way. 

City police plan to monitor the situation.
