Pledge to Flag

The meeting was called to order at 7:00 p.m. by Mayor, Gordon Johnson; Council members present: Dennis Overland, Roger Ekern, Dale Schwanke and Liz Atkinson, Howard Otis - Zoning Administrator and Judy Graham - Clerk.

Citizens Present: Attorney Thomas Manion, Beth Hermes Mitchell, Gary Marcoux, Davin Thompson, Mark Welch of G Cubed, Zachery Miner, Katerine Lazano, Zachery Meredith of RP.

The agenda was approved with the addition of a summary of possible S. Rushford Subdivision Lots of the future, Road tour motions, and clerk can't be here on the 19th if a 2nd meeting is needed on a motion by Schwanke seconded by Ekern, carried.

After some discussion regarding the claims list for May and the addition of a WHKS claim regarding the Rislove Bridge, a motion to pay in a timely fashion was made by Atkinson seconded by Ekern, carried.

Laura Lane residents were present to inform the council of the pending project to begin this week on the surfacing of Laura Lane. After much discussion Attorney Manion agreed that the street was indeed a part of the City of Rushford Village and the citizens could petition to have the cost for the hard surface placed on their property tax as an assessment for a period of 10 years at 6.5% interest to begin with the 2010 tax year statement of May. Rushford Village Council will develop a resolution to this effect for the next meeting and those that wish to participate will need to present their Agreement of Assessment and Waiver of Irregularity and Appeal to the Council. Because this subdivision was underway prior to the current Zoning Ordinance, which now requires a bond to cover final road surface by the developer, this project will be treated like those in the past; however, this will be the final assessment of this kind.

Otis presented a copy of the final zoning board ordinance for Outdoor Wood Burners and after many questions and discussion, including citizens, Otis agreed to have each council member read and return to the next meeting for final Council adjustments.

Welch asked what is the actual supporting information requested of G Cubed on the Cranley access to make this driveway acceptable. Welch shared he has not been able to find any written standards relating to the slope of a private drive. Schwanke shared the Ordinance 11 requirements say in 10% is the maximum slope (making 15% unacceptable). He also suggested any changes you may be able to design mak .....
