                                                                        November 10, 2009  Regular Meeting

                                                                                   

The Crow Wing Township Board of Supervisors held its Regular Meeting on Tuesday, November 10, 2009 at 7:00 p.m. at the Crow Wing Town Hall.  Present were Chairman Greg Smith, Supervisors Mark Platta and Dave Schultz, Clerk Virginia Rogers, Treasurer Susan Goodew and those on the attached public roster.

 

A request had been received from Ed Mattson to take the roads in the plat of Sand Creek. It was noted that the $1500 maintenance amount has not been submitted and six stop signs will need to be installed and the cars parking on Boulder Court will need to be parked off the road. Once the maintenance fee and signs are taken care of, the township will accept the roads, as they do meet other requirements for township maintenance.

 

Dave LePage was present on behalf of Big Wood Timber. The chimney on the outdoor furnace has been raised to a level of 40 feet and Dave had met with Mark Strobel to discuss the size and construction of the fence between the properties. Mark was present and reviewed a sketch of the fence. He expressed his approval of the location and type of fence and noted that he will look again at the treeline to see just how far the fence needs to extend to provide adequate screening. There still seems to be some problem with the smoke coming back down to the ground on some mornings. Dave said that he intends to build some sort of lean-to to keep the wood dry, as starting the fire with damp wood contributes to this problem. Mark noted that the problem is occuring about two mornings out of the four that the furnace is running.

Dave requested an extension on the right to appeal the so that they would have recourse in the event that the new CUP has conditions placed on it that are more restrictive than the business allows. Mark made a motion to extend the right to appeal to December 31, 2009. The motion was seconded by Dave and carried by unanimous vote. The amount Big Wood will be billed for the expenses involved in the land use violation was discussed. A decision on which expenses to charge for was tabled until there is a final total and the statutes have been checked.

 

A check for $13000 was received from the bond company for the plat of Nature Path. Since the assessment has not been certified yet, it can be changed to reflect this reduction. Dave made a motion to pass Resolution 2009-12 - Resolution Adopting Assessment, which is attached to these minutes. The motion was seconded by Mark and carried by unanimous vote.

 

A cemetery deed for Roy and Joann Luukonen was reviewed and signed.

 

Billing for land use violation expenses was considered. Mark made a motion to adopt the following Land Use Violation Enforcement Billing Policy attached to these minutes. The motion was seconded by Dave and carried by unanimous vote.

 

Ginny was asked to send a letter to The Farm on St. Mathias informing them that they will need an entry permit for the driveway they appear to be putting in on 75th Street.

 

The minutes of the October 27, 2009 Regular Meeting were read. It was noted that Mark had voted no on the refund amount for White Oaks Glen. Dave made a motion to accept the minutes with that addition. The motion was seconded by Mark and carried by unanimous vote.

 

Correspondence was reviewed and claims were approved and paid.

 

The meeting was adjourned at 10:00 p.m. by general consent.
