ROAD REPORT:  Gary has been mowing ditches and cutting up leaning trees from the ice storm; filled all potholes and fixed signs; started grading gravel roads.

A Variance Application for Gerard & Lisa Fischer was presented to construct an attached 30’ x 40’ garage.  Dennis was concerned about the 19’ location to the closest point to the centerline of an existing 30’ wide access easement.  The current structure is already non-conforming, and this request would make it more non-conforming.  28 opinion letters were sent out; 6 returned; 5 with no objection and 1 not in favor.
MOTION: Moved by Rusk; 2nd by Clagett to approve the Gerard & Lisa Fischer Variance Application with consideration for a reduction in building size to mitigate the non-conformance; all in favor; motion carried.
