OLD BUSINESS  

Case #01-03—Cesarz

John Lowe indicated that the township was sent a transcript from the court reporter that

attended the March 3, 2003 Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) meeting. The court reporter

attended the meeting at the request of Mr. Paul Burns, attorney for Mr. Russell Cesarz

(ZBA Case #01-03). 

The Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) reviewed the transcript of the March 3, 2003 meeting

provided by Mr. Cesarz, as well as the township’s minutes from the meeting. John Lowe

pointed out errors in the transcript provided by Mr. Cesarz.  For example, in several sections,

the 18,000 square foot amount was transcribed as 1800 square foot. Also, the ERS district

was referred to as the RS district.  Annette McNamara will forward a list of these inaccuracies

to the Mike Kehoe, the township attorney. 

The ZBA reviewed the township’s minutes page by page.  All members of the board concurred

that pages one and two are correct as presented.  Page three should be corrected to more

accurately reflect comments made by Roger Pashak in the Call to the Public. Page four should

 have the wording changed to indicate the township has multiple ERS districts. 

Linda Manson-Dempsey motioned to approve the section of the minutes pertaining to ZBA

Case #01-03—Cesarz as amended.  Dan Rossbach seconded.  Motion carried 5-0.  

APPROVAL OF MINUTES

Linda Manson-Dempsey motioned to approve the remainder of the ZBA minutes (portions not dealing

with ZBA Case #01-03) from March 3, 2003 as presented.  Larry Fillinger seconded.  Motion carried 5-0.

ZBA Case #21-02—Castle

Annette McNamara indicated that the time has expired for Mr. Castle’s variance request, and he

has not resubmitted any additional information.  Linda Manson-Dempsey motioned to remove

ZBA #21-02—Castle and close the case, effective May 5, 2003, due to no response from

applicant.  Dan Rossbach seconded.  Roll call vote: Rossbach, Fillinger, Manson-Dempsey,

J.Lowe, Dan Lowe—all yes.  Motion carried 5-0.

CALL TO PUBLIC

Linda Manson-Dempsey pointed out that index pages from the transcript provided by

Mr. Cesarz as missing.  Ms. Manson-Dempsey also felt that the transcript was not transcribed

verbatim and she was quoted inaccurately.

ADJOURNMENT

Dan Lowe motioned to adjourn at 8:22 p.m.  Linda Manson-Dempsey seconded. 

Motion carried 5-0.
