Zoning Administrator’s Report

Olson reported that a “cease and desist order” was issued relating to the county building used by the Birkie on County OO. They were selling coffee, jewelry and ski items at the building. While it might not seem as much, he was not hired to pick and choose which rules he will enforce. There are options available to the county to make things right. The town could not find a permitted use or conditional use which would allow for what was occurring. The County can rezone its own property to allow for this. It could ask for a variance as well. Hucker noted the town is hamstrung because it has to be as restrictive as the county ordinance is. If the County amended its zoning ordinance to allow for a conditional use for this type of commercial use in forestry to cover this, the town plan commission and town board could then consider amending its ordinance to match what the County did. Olson also noted that he got calls about this issue which led to his checking on it.

Olson noted the commission may review a rezone next month. Notice will go out once it is ready.

Olson handed out the year-end report that Boss prepared comparing the year 2018 with past years. Olsen also gave a report on a teleconference for statutory changes that he attended.

Any Other Business That May Come Before the Commission for Discussion

There was none.
