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

#01-03—Cesarz as amended. Dan
