Tim Grabau made a motion to approve the treasurer's report. Michele Hitchcock seconded the motion and it carried unanimously.

VISITORS: Pam Kunz and Les Peterson. Les informed council that he applied for a permit to set two trailers on footings behind his garage and attach to the garage. He will be 18-20 feet on the east side, 10 feet on the south side, 15 -20 feet on the north side from property lines. He will be putting a gabled roof on the trailers. Mike mentioned this is a different use for trailers and trailers were something we didn't want to see in residential areas.

Les proposes to take the running gears off and set them on a foundation. The trailers will be painted brown to match the garage. Pam mentioned the trailers would be attached to the garage as an addition to the garage.

The county permit requires neighbor's signatures and city approval before county will approve the permit. Rocky Vreeman, a neighbor, feels that if the trailers are put behind the garage he has no problem with it. After more discussion on the subject, Tim Grabau made a motion to approve the permit as presented to council and that is the two trailers be put on a permanent foundation and a roof added. Michele Hitchcock seconded the motion and it carried unanimously.
