Mr. Bickley noted that the minutes for the fence issue at 5121 Sloan Street were emailed to the Board members. The last sentence of the 8/12/15 minutes did state that Mr. Johnson agreed to nail additional one-by-one boards on the back side of the fence; which has not yet been done. Mr. Bickley indicated that the office has not received any complaints and questioned if the Board would like a letter sent to Mr. Johnson reminding him that the boards have not been installed. After a brief discussion, the Board directed Mr. Bickley to send a letter to Mr. Johnson requesting that he install the boards as Mr. Johnson indicated he would do.

Mr. Bickley reviewed the status of the JBS Market (Miller Boat Line) use variance administrative appeal by Jeffrey Jadwisiak.

Mr. Bickley reviewed the screening plan at the Dollar General Store and noted that the wall/fence has been extended beyond the transformer and storm sewer manhole and then extended to the west by forty (40) lineal feet. The Board requested the wall/fence then be extended back to the building. Ed Davis, representing Dollar General Store, noted that the wall/fence would extend over the storm sewer and the County Engineer noted that a wall could be an issue if the storm sewer needed repair or replaced. Mr. Davis suggested a fence rather than wall be extended from the wall/fence to the building. The Board discussed the issue and agreed that a solid fence, not a wall, would be acceptable.

Tim McKenna made a motion to approve the placement of a fence, the fence matching the fence on the wall, to extend from the wall/fence back to the building. The motion was seconded by Sandra Erwin. Motion passed.

Rick Smetzer thanked the zoning inspector for addressing the lighting issue at the Dollar General Store. Mr. Smetzer identified two (2) additional items: a temporary sign (opening soon) that exceeds six (6) square feet and the placement of brick on all four (4) sides. Only two (2) sides have been bricked. The zoning inspector will review.

The Board discussed architectural requirements for the township.


Jack Ziegler moved to adjourn the meeting. The motion was seconded by Sandra Erwin. The meeting was adjourned at 7:31 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,
