SHEPHERD — The Shepherd City Council discussed a possible new housing development for the city which will be built using new technology.

City Secretary Debra Hagler said Greg and Alan Biddle have a housing development in its beginning stages, and plan to start with 16 homes to be used for rental property.

The two will use a different type of construction using a 3D printer that creates items from cement.

Currently, the developers are trying to get drainage approved and doing required studies necessary for permitting. The development will be located near the intersection of Bird and Hallelujah streets.

In other business, the council:

•purchased two vehicles for the Police Department for $51,000 to be paid from ARPA funds;

•accepted resignation of part-time librarian Crystale Thompson, and will advertise for a replacement;

•discussed but took no action on a request to extend the right-of-way on North Railroad Avenue;

•discussed but took no action on a request to place a manufactured home on North Hill Street;

•denied a request for special dispensation on a permit request from LaShonda Carr;

•approved a correction to an ordinance regarding the Police Department; and

•approved shingle replacement and refurbishing of the gazebo and stage at the city park.
