PLANNING & ZONING
Mark and Melanee
Strobel were present to file a complaint about a renewed occurrence of smoke in their yard from the outdoor boiler at Big
Wood Timber. Mark has been diagnosed with pneumonia and believes it could be related to the smoke. He said he believes the
smell of the wood that they are burning is not normal. Brad Arnold suggested periodic unannounced visits to see what type
of material is being burned and offered to stop in at 7:30 a.m. tomorrow (Oct. 27th). A letter will be sent to
Big Wood letting them know that the smoke issue is not resolved, there are other sources of heat available and that they can
either resolve the smoke problem or use an alternative fuel source. They should also be informed that trailers and other types
of equipment or items should not be stored in the right of way. The smoke issue was to have been resolved by June 15th
and now that the system is being used again, it is obvious that the problem has not been solved. Complaints have been received
from multiple parties. We have not received any documentation from them informing us of information received from the manufacturer
or other attempts that have been made to improve the way that the system functions.
Dave had finished
corrections to the road mileage log and asked that it be emailed to Rob and Anne at the County Highway Department. He also gave an update on new signs that need to be ordered. Dave has been removing trees brought down
by the storm.
Greg made a motion
to approve the October 12, 2010 minutes as written. The motion was seconded by Dave and carried by unanimous vote.
Payroll was approved
and correspondence was reviewed.
The meeting adjourned
by general consent at 7:40 p.m.
