OLD HOSPITAL PARKING LOT – REQUEST A WAIVER FROM THE DRAINAGE ORDINANCE

Surveyor Ward distributed a letter from Randall Miller and Associates, Monticello, IN; along with the proposed plan to the White County Drainage Board. He explained the developer wants to expand the parking lot area and lower it approximately five (5) feet and the run off will be less than the previous run off. The City of Monticello did not provide a letter of permission for the storm sewers at this time. He will not recommend granting a waiver without the City of Monticello approval document.

Vice President Heimlich clarified this discussion is not about the old hospital parking lot, but about the whole site.

President Burton commented that the project plans are not clear.

Member Diener stated that we should have the City of Monticello documents first before granting a waiver.

Attorney Loy recommended granting a waiver contingent on the City of Monticello approval.

· Vice President Heimlich made a motion to grant the waiver contingent on the letter from the City of Monticello allowing White County to use the storm sewer outlet; seconded by Member Diener. Vote: Unanimous.

LANCE EZRA STORAGE BUILDING (0.995A) – REQUEST A WAIVER FROM THE DRAINAGE ORDINANCE

Surveyor Ward presented a visual display of the one acre site which is mostly gravel and hard surface. There is a county tile that runs along the south property line on the north side of the highway and drains into the Esther Fraser system. He asked the landowner to attend the Drainage Board meeting to request a waiver. There is currently enough impervious surface area on the whole lot that the addition needs to comply with the Drainage and Sediment Control Ordinance. He said the run off goes to the Griffin tanks in the southeast corner of the property. The concern is the water might be trapped on the north side of the building.

President Burton wanted to know if the neighbor is aware of the project. There is an issue of overlapping property.

Lance Ezra, developer, and associate were present to answer questions. Mr. Ezra said the neighbor knows about the project. The storage building is 7,000 square feet. He stated Mike Ezra, County Line Tiling/Excavating, Winamac, Indiana will be doing the work.

· Member Diener made a motion to grant a waiver for the storage building; seconded by Vice President Heimlich. VOTE: UNANIMOUS

There being no further business to come before the board, their meeting was adjourned.
