Old business:

 

There was discussion about a job description for a maintenance person. It has been discussed and will need more work at the next planning commission working meeting.

 

There was discussion about dust control on Maple Shores Drive. Gravel breaks down as it gets old. A new lift of gravel could possibly help the dust problem. Motion by Member Swanson to forward to the board adding about four inches of gravel to Maple Shores Drive, second by Member Valvoda, motion carried unanimously.

 

Discussion ensued about the 2010 resolution setting building inspector fees. Motion by Member Folkestad to pass to the board the recommendation to have the planning commission work on a new resolution setting building inspector fees at the next working meeting, second by Member Valvoda, motion carried unanimously.

 

New business:

 

Larry Knabe, 7483 Clint Road, Braham was present and requested a variance of seventy-five feet to build a pole shed on his property. This is due to the need to keep acreage for a secondary sewer system and the way the buildings and well are situated.  After discussion, motion by Member Valvoda to forward to the board approval for a variance contingent on the written application, complementary drawings, and approval of the Zoning Administrator John Kemen, second by Member Swanson, motion carried unanimously.

 

There was discussion that another variance may be needed on Royal River Run.

 
Member Swanson with regrets and thanks recommended to the board the resignation of Member Folkestad, with the recommendation she continue to take the regular planning commission meeting minutes, second by Member Valvoda, motion carried unanimously.
