3.Public Comment – Nancy Shaver asked if we could get electrical plugs on the south side wall inside the township hall to help with election equipment. Bob Cook responded that we have not needed them in the past but we can look at it.
Glen Fox commented that Lee Hill road looks good and it looks like it should hold up
Travis Klimek stated that the parking lot looks good. Goose Dirt works delivered 51 ton of 21AA and spread it out for the township
Cat Lake Association president thanked the board for the advice provided to them last meeting, that it was helpful-they are ordering new signs for no trespassing, they received the zoning ordinances from the township but there were no maps included, Bob Cook stated that we no longer include maps in the book because it just causes more questions-a map can be provided upon request for a small fee, Bob encouraged them to come to the planning commission meeting to become more informed in the process
Tim from 4137 Lakeview, in the cat lake association, raised a concern that the property being used for the business is not agricultural, there was a discussion as to what section was residential and agricultural, Bob will go as a citizen to visit with the people as a courtesy. Setbacks for township are 40’ where right to farm is 200’. Travis confirmed that it is 1 parcel. Greg Lotter concluded that the depth of a normal lot would apply to this property as residential and anything beyond that would be agricultural. Cat Lake President mentioned that the right to farm has not sent reports yet but township would be receiving one. Bob Cook said that the township cannot enforce anything in this situation. Set backs beyond 40’ would be enforced by right to farm act, anything within the association would be enforced by the association.
