Regular Meeting November
Crow Wing Town Hall 6:00
Board Members Present: Chairman Mark Platta, Supervisors
Greg Smith and Dave Schultz, Clerk Virginia Rogers and those on the attached public roster.
Mark called the meeting to order and the pledge to the
flag was recited.
No gopher bounties were claimed.
Brad gave the Planning and Zoning report. He reviewed information
from the public hearing regarding permitting for accessory structures. After reviewing the proposed amendment to the ordinance
a question about the wording arose. Mark made a motion to table this item until the next meeting. The motion was seconded
by Greg and passed unanimously.
A letter from Steve Qualley regarding the Curt Engholm
hearing was reviewed. It was determined that the he will be asked to communicate with the public defender regarding an agreement
to clean up the property and assess it to the property taxes. He should proceed with this agreement only if Isla Engholm is
willing to consider it as she is the one who would have to sign it.
The Anthony violation was next considered. The inspection
determined that the fence had not been repaired or replaced and is not at all in compliance with the ordinance. Permit information
from the county was reviewed as well as aerial and ground photos from the assessor. After discussion, it was determined that
a letter should be sent to the property owner listed on each parcel that is in violation. The letter should instruct them
that they must determine whether or not they wish to continue the salvage business, in which case they must meet all requirements
in the ordinance regarding junk salvage yards. If they decide to discontinue the business, an agreement must be entered into
to clean up the debris on the property. A response will be requested within 30 days. It will be sent by certified mail and
the ordinance standards will be included.
Big Wood Timber is back on the violation list due to signs
put up without a permit. A letter has been sent informing them of this. They have also removed a portion of the smoke stack.
We have no information as to why this has been done. An update was given on the
dirt bike race track now owned by Brothers Motorsports.
Insurance declarations pages were reviewed. Ginny will
contact MATIT for clarification and correction.
The minutes of the November 1, 2011 meeting were reviewed.
Dave made a motion to approve the minutes as written. The motion was seconded by Greg and carried by unanimous vote.
Payroll was approved and correspondence was reviewed.
was adjourned at 7:50 p.m. by general consent.
