ZONING – a Conditional Use application was presented for Walter Nied to construct a 56' x 26' accessory building on vacant property. One out of 4 opinion letters was returned with no objection. The Comprehensive Planning Commission recommended the approval of the application on the condition the maximum wall height is not to exceed 10', cannot be used for commercial purposes, the lot should be added to the deed with the south lot across the street and sold as one, the north lot if sold separate needs to have a septic system in order to be sold.

The Department of Commerce is currently providing the UNIFORM DWELLING CODE inspectors for the Town of Hunter. Len Eckerly said a couple of contractors reported that it takes a long time to get permits from the State and asked if we would consider assigning a UDC Inspector for the Town. Scott Scheilbien and Troy Kadlecek are both certified UDC Inspectors and addressed the Board. Scott said the tax payer pays a fee to the State but the inspections are not getting done on a timely basis. Troy said sometimes it takes up to 6 weeks to get the paper work through. The board will look over the fee schedules from Troy and Scott and make a decision for enforcing the UDC.

Skip Kelsey of Northern Sheet Metal wrote a proposal for REPLACING THE FURNACES. The garage furnace cost would be $4,972 and the hall would be $5,500.
