AMENDMENT #4 TO ORDINANCE 2-92 ADOPTION OF STATE UNIFORM DWELLING CODE:  It was brought to the town boards attention that due to the fact we had not updated our current ordinance a resident who took out a permit in 1978 and never finished the work could now do an addition without permits. Rick Clem, AV Building Inspector supplied us with several other town’s model ordinances and said until we update ours there is nothing that can be done about this.

ROAD INSPECTION DATE: The Board decided to take their annual road inspection on May 16th @ 12:00PM. They will inspect the condition of the roads and what work will be bid this year.


APPROVE SALE OF TOWNS 8-ARCE PARCEL: The electors again approved the sale of the town’s 8-acre parcel and now the board needed to decide. Perry would like to see us try to trade land at the gravel pit with the state. We could save the town thousands of dollars if that were possible. Bauers recalls that the state won’t trade land for land inside the state forest. Hunter would not like us to do anything with it, just hang onto it. Bauers made a motion to make a trade with the state and if they won’t trade then we’ll sell it. The motion was seconded by Perry and passed 3-2 with Hunter and Held voting no.
