Lanesboro City Council approves Conditional Use Permits


Fri, Aug 9th, 2013
Posted in Lanesboro Government

By Jade Sexton

Two public hearings were held before the regular city council meeting in Lanesboro on August 5. The first one was from Richard Horihan, owner of RLH Grain. Horihan had requested a Conditional Use Permit (CUP) to put up a new drying bin and increase the height by six feet.

Councilor Dybing said there are currently no regulations in Planning and Zoning regarding the height of a drying bin, so the meeting was called for discussion.

Shari Qualy approached the council with concerns about a larger drying bin. She brought in two jars with samples; one with dust and one with the “bees wings” that come out of the dryer during drying season. She stressed nearby properties are seriously affected during drying season with this material flying through the air.

City Administrator David Todd said the new bin was supposed to decrease dust, noise, and debris while increasing drying capacity for Horihan.

Horihan reiterated this. He said the drying process will not change, but it will be cleaner and it should decrease the bees wings. He added that he would love to eliminate them altogether, but it’s extremely difficult given they are very light and fluffy.

Lanesboro resident John Levell asked Horihan if there were any increased hazards with the new bin, and Horihan replied it should actually be less dangerous.

Dybing said Planning and Zoning discussed the issue at length and had questions about the actual height, so there were no recommendations. He made a motion to approve the permit, and the motion passed.

The second public hearing was in regards to the lot downtown owned by Eric and Andy Bunge. Four years ago the council approved a CUP to allow an open air market in that location. Eric said they were just asking for an extension of what was approved at that time, with no changes.

The original CUP stated there would be a fence around the lots, and 33 percent of the space could be for storage. That area would be used to store rental equipment. One resident commented there is a van and a trailer parked there all the time, but Eric said he wasn’t aware of that. There is no fence put up, either, and Eric said there is simply not enough money to put up such a large fence.

There are two Amish people who come to the market to sell things, and sometimes someone who sells jewelry. Bunge pointed out that Amish selle .....
