PRESTON - On Thursday, July 19th the Fillmore County Planning & Zoning Commission voted Jim Keune as the Board Chair and Steve Duxbury as Vice Chair for the coming year.

Gun Shop Variance

Bill McBride of Kava Road, Preston asked the Board of Adjustment to approve a variance for 20 feet to construct a gun shop. Currently the shop is being run out of a very old house. McBride would like to tear down the house and build a new shop on the exact location. However, the current location is too close to the road under current ordinances. The Board asked if Carimona Township had reviewed the proposal. A representative from Carimona Township was present to report that the Township did not see any problems with the proposal. Concluding this discussion the board unanimously approved the McBride variance.

Johnson Feed Lot

Jon Johnson, Fountain asked the Fillmore County Planning Commission to approve a Conditional Use Permit (CUP) to expand his feedlot from 392 animal units to 700. This feedlot would be located in Fountain Township. The land is located in an agricultural district and is approximately 3 miles north of Preston. After the Commission found that the Johnson proposal met all ordinances the CUP was approved.
