NORTH WEBSTER – North Webster Town Council told a construction company Tuesday they didn’t have any issues with construction plans for a house as presented.

John Kidd, president of R W Kidd Construction, Winona Lake, said the county recommended to him that he present some remodeling concepts at 121 N. Mulberry St. to the Town Council. He presented two options.

Kidd said the property owner lives in California and Florida, but “loves it here.” What was proposed was to add another bedroom and bathroom to the house.

Kidd said one option will put the house in line with its neighbors. The property would have a single-car garage and would still have room to back up.

Upon presentation of the first option, Kidd said the county didn’t seem to have an issue with the plans and the neighbors didn’t have an issue with the house being in line with theirs.

The second option was to add a few feet to the bedrooms, making the house 4 feet closer to the street and 3 feet out of line of the neighboring houses.

Kidd said there will be other things done to the house like new siding, but there really won’t be anything new done to the front of the house.

Clerk-Treasurer Betsy Luce asked if the neighbors are open to both options.

Kidd said he hasn’t talked to them yet about the second option. He assumes the neighbors will get a certified letter of the meeting with the Kosciusko County Board of Zoning Appeals. Kidd said he has a meeting Aug. 9.

Councilman David Waliczek said if the county doesn’t have a problem with the requests, he doesn’t have a problem with it.
