MHOG WATER ISSUES
Water Water pressure needs
to be improved at
DEQ permit to connect an eight inch water line between Fox Fire and Crystal Wood. If the permit is expired then we
will have to get another one and we will have to have Tetra-Tech come back and inspect it, the money will have to
come out of Escrow money. Dan Lowe believes that Tetra-Tech was already paid for this but he will do more research.
A Representative from Boss Engineering explained the site plan for George
Jappaya owner of
Planning Commission has approved the preliminary site plan but wants them to get two variances. They have four REU’s
presently but the final amount of REU’s needed will be determined by what types of businesses occupy the building.
Any change of use has to come back to the Planning Commission. They will come back to the Zoning Administrator for
permits whenever a new tenant is to occupy the building. They will also be required to go to the Zoning Board of Appeals
for any required variances. Dave Hamann motioned to approve the Preliminary
Site Plan Approval for
Center , tax code number 4710-02-400-013, subject to the same conditions that the Planning Commission requires.
Tammy Beal seconded. Motion carried 5-0.

Dave Hamann, Paula Wyckoff, Dan
Lowe, Tammy Beal, Bob Hanvey---all yes.
PRIVATE ROADS GENERAL ORDINANCE
Pla Planning Commission recommends that Preexisting Non-Conforming Private Road Ordinance be put in the General
Ordinances, not the Zoning Ordinances. Dave Hamann presented a rough draft to try to handle splits on unapproved
private roads. When residents of a private road come to the Zoning Administrator for a new split the Zoning Administrator
will bring it to the Board of Trustees. That way they can look at each case individually and try to facilitate the
improvements of the road with the residents. Sue Lingle’s suggestion of different classifications of roads from a 1996
document will also be considered. Dave Hamann motioned to accept the Planning Commissions recommendation and
further investigation and finalization for the Preexisting Non-Conforming Private Road General Ordinance, along with
Sue Lingle’s previous recommendation and come up with a final ordinance that we are all comfortable with using.
Dan Lowe seconded. Motion carried 5-0.
PARK & RECREATION REPORT
Paula Wyckoff reported that because the millage didn’t pass the Parks & Recreation would have to recon- figurate their
spending. Howell city would like to lower their contribution. New ways of funding programs will have to be determined.
No action taken.
