Three items were taken care of quickly during Tuesday night's Robinson City Council meeting.
Gerod and Desiree Briggs were on hand to see if their variance request for a metal garage on their property was approved.
While they did not speak to the council during the meeting, Alderman Barbara Alexander said they would like to have a 40x76 foot metal garage added to their property at 10399 E. 1150th Ave. This also includes a 12-foot attached porch.
