ROCKLAND — Rockland City Councilors had a full plate before them Wednesday night and made quick action of a long list of items after the lengthy discussion concerning the Safe Harbor Marinas expansion.

The Council voted Oct. 13 to postpone final action on a proposed inclusionary zoning ordinance. The ordinance had been given preliminary approval Sept. 13. The postponement would give city officials more time to see if any revisions are needed.

The proposed ordinance would cover any new construction or substantial renovation to six or more residential units. Twenty percent of the units would need to be affordable for workforce housing. Developers could pay a a fee of $150,000 per unit to the city in lieu of providing the affordable housing units.

Developers of hotels would be required to set aside one affordable housing unit for every 10 rooms they plan to build. Hotel developers could pay $5,000 per unit they are constructing in lieu of creating an affordable housing unit.

The issue will be before the Council again on Nov. 8.

In other action, the Council:

* Approved a lodging license for 410/412 Main St. The city has allowed for the downtown building to be used for lodging for the past four years. The property was sold and the new owner wanted to continue using the property under the lodging license law. Councilors debated at length about whether it met the code standards before voting 3-2 (Mayor Ed Glaser, and Councilors Louise MacLellan-Ruf and Nate Davis in support) to award the lodging license.

* The Council postponed action on a lodging license for the Trade Winds. The code office reports there needs to be work done on the sprinkler system and nine first-floor rooms have to be re-inspected for electrical work. The current license expires Oct. 15 but the owner will be given an additional 30 days to complete the work.

* Approved spending $50,000 for grant writing services.

* Approved a waiver of a $180 fee for Carrie Post in her appeal to the Zoning Board of Appeals for a fence built by her neighbors.

* Approved writing off $95,385 in debt that its auditor has determined to be un-collectible. The money was largely loans provided by the city over the past 20 years to businesses that have closed or gone through bankruptcy. The write-offs include $24,368 for Economy Clothes, $22,611 for Tyler’s Maple, $17,010 for Cafe Miranda,  $12,374 for Toast of the Town, and $2,998 for the Maine Squeeze.

* Agreed to allow Mac Attack and Amato’s to keep their food trucks at Buoy Park through Nov. 30 at no additional charge. The leases were to end Oct. 15.
