Zoning Administrator Report

As Boss was absent Hucker presented the Zoning Administrators report. There was one Shoreline Land Use Permit, and one Violation.

Discussion of County Metallic Mining Ordinance

The commission went over the adapted ordinance. A number of questions were raised. One was about the hours of operation that vary from exploration and prospecting to mining. Should the town be more restrictive in the allowed hours of operation? Another concern brought up was about the reclamation of the mining site once mining ceases. Should the town’s ordinance be more specific? Hucker is going to ask the town’s attorney about whether there should be a definition of reclamation, and if there should be a specific requirement for providing a reclamation plan in the town’s proposed ordinance.

Any Other Business That May Come Before the Commission for Discussion

Hucker has talked with the Northwest Regional Planning Commission. They will be able to add a glossary, but concluded that an index similar to what was in the 2008 Plan should not be added to the final plan. Adding to the index as requested would make it hard to edit in the future.

Motion to adjourn by Brandt and seconded by Mazik, MC 5-0
