HEARING OF VISITORS: None

ZONING INSPECTOR:

  1. The Zoning Appeals Board denied Martin’s appeal and Joe issued a second notice of violation. If they still have someone living over the garage after thirty days, it will be turned over to the Prosecutor’s Office.
  2. Joe stopped to talk with Shumaker Homes on US 23. They have a planned layout for a new building that is thirty feet different than their plan approved in 2004. He told them if they want to build where they have it laid out, they will have to submit a new plan.

ROAD/CEMETERY SUPERINTENDENT:

  1. Kevin will take the 2003 Chevy truck to CCI for a quote on the needed work.
  2. Big Sky came down and fixed the antifreeze leak on the snow plow.
  3. The John Deere 5510 Road Mower needs to have the oil pan replaced. L.A.B Technical Services will repair it for approximately $1000.00 and he will also adjust the clutch. The Trustees discussed this and all voted to approve the repair. Kevin will go to John Deere and purchase the parts for this repair.

FIRE CHIEF’S REPORT:

  1. All paperwork is complete and the new fulltime firefighters will start on January 25, 2015.
