Public Comments:

Rick Sathre-Planning & Zoning issues with the proposed RV Park at BayView scheduled for Oct. 15.  Concerned that he won’t be here for the next regular town board meeting.  Concern that residents won’t be able to participate.  Asked for no decision being made till people are able to come before the board till more people can be here.  Noted that an environmental assessment worksheet should be done if more than 15 pads are within the shoreland area or more than 25 in non-shoreland area, which is mandatory and must be approved prior to final approval.

Chr. Reichel explained that timing is important and the public is notified and written comments are always accepted.  The final decision is made by the Planning & Zoning Commission or Board of Adjustment.

Sup. DeLuca noted that the persons on the Board of Adjustment and Planning Commission are appointed by the Town Board to administer the Ordinance.

Sup. Doroff noted that the members of the Board of Adjustment and Planning Commission are appointed not elected.

Wally & Shirley Snyder noted that all decisions are made by the two boards and not political.  The county also has a Planning Commission and Board of Adjustment-the county board of commissioners do not make the zoning decisions.

Marcie Moe-complained letters are not read at the hearings.  She was informed that the letters are read and noted.  She disagreed.

It was noted that property owners are sent written notice of the hearing as well as the website, newspaper and have the ability to write, email, fax or appear in person if it is that important.

Safety-Peg Nelson said to wear orange vests while walking and lifejackets.
Planning Director-Julia Maki gave the board a written report-absent due to child surgery.
Maintenance-Pat Trancheff of Sept. summary.  He reported that he would like to ask Rick Worringer to fill in for him-the insurance company will be contacted to ensure he would be covered.
Sup. Aro-record retention plan to think about and 2014 budget work will start shortly.

               MOTION to adjourn at 8:15 pm.
