Director Weaver stated, May 14th.

Attorney Altman stated, May 14th right here, same time.

President Anderson stated, I apologize to everyone that is here but, I can’t…

****

#747 Juanita Norman; Requesting to rezone from A-1 to R-2 on .33 of an acre. The property is located North of Monon at 8490 N. Meridian Road.

President Anderson asked, do we have anyone here to represent this request?

Jeff Tanner was representing the request.

President Anderson asked, do we have anyone with any questions about this request? Do the Commissioners have any questions about this request?

Director Weaver stated, the reason that this is being rezoned, you just had one last month in the same area it’s, a very shallow piece of property. It has Meridian Road in front of it and then the railroad is behind it. It’s a piece of property that is wide but, shallow. So, in order to make it easier to build on, instead of requesting a variance, it’s more logically to rezone to have better setbacks to meet.

President Anderson asked, is this going to need a septic system?

Director Weaver stated, it is on a septic system.

President Anderson asked, is there a septic system already there?

Jeff Tanner stated, yes, there is.

President Anderson asked, is he going to build on this?

Director Weaver stated, he’s going to do an addition right?

Jeff Tanner stated, yes, just an addition.

President Anderson asked, are there any questions? If we don’t have any questions let's go ahead and vote.

With no further discussion the Board voted.

The results of the vote were as follows: 4 affirmative and 0 negative. This will be presented to County Commissioners for their action.

Attorney Altman stated, that will be next Monday, right here at 8:30 in the morning, they have the final action.

Jeff Tanner asked, do I need to be present at that meeting?

Attorney Altman stated, I always tell people, yes. They have the final answer.

President Anderson stated, even though we give you a positive recommendation, they can still turn it down but, no one has been opposed to this anyway. So the likelihood is that they are not but, I would have someone either yourself or someone there.

Jeff Tanner stated, I will be here, 8:30 next Monday.

Director Weaver stated, in the same room.

Attorney Altman stated, in the morning.

#748 Robert & Carol Hardebeck; Requesting to rezone from I-1 to I-2 on .23 of an acre. The property is located on the West side of N. Sixth Street, just West of 1110 N. Sixth Street.

President Anderson asked, do we have anyone representing this request?

David Gillman stated, I’m representing Crown Castle Incorporated. We are here tonight to petition for a rezone of 10,000 square feet of property, on Mr. Hardebeck’s land, from I-1 to I-2. The reason for this rezoning request is to allow us to follow a special exception and be heard on the 19th of this month, before the Board of Zoning Appeals, as a special exception. The tower that we’re proposing to construct would be a 250’ self support tower. We would have a 75’ x 75’ fenced in compound with security data on it and barbwire across the top. Inside of the compound area, we would house the equipment sheds to support the antennas of the people that are locating on the towers. Crown Castle is a little bit of a different type of company. We basically deal in vertical real estate, we do not have phones that we sell to people. All of the phone providers, the 6 licensed carries in Indiana, make application to Crown Castle to find them a site. So, all of the carriers can go on a single tower as opposed to having 6 different towers out there or more than one tower they all have basically asked Crown to find them a site in the Monticello area. This particular property was attractive to us because, of A it was zoned industrial purposes and the Hardebeck’s were willing to lease the property to us. The property has another tract adjacent to the, I believe the West and the South that is zoned agricultural. That property owner was not interested in leasing property to us, Mr. Hardebeck has an existing building and then a new building in the rear of his property and we would be right in between those two building. I do have a map of that I can share with the Board at this time showing you exactly the location of the tower.

Attorney Altman asked, is that this map?

David Gillman stated, that’s correct.

Attorney Altman asked, has the Board seen this?

Director Weaver stated, while the Board is looking at that I would like to mention that we did have a call from one of the neighbors, not necessarily objecting to this request but, questioning what their intentions were.

President Anderson asked, who was that?

Director Weaver stated, the welding shop, Rudy Owens.

President Anderson asked, how far is Rudy from that tower?

Director Weaver stated, he is right beside it.

Attorney Altman stated, Rudy Owens is right there.

President Anderson asked, he’s quite a way, away from it though isn’t he?

Attorney Altman asked, it sets off of the road how many feet?

David Gillman stated, it’s against the property line.

President Anderson stated, that’s a 200’ and sum tower.

There was discussion among the Board members.

David Gillman stated, Crown Castle primarily leases to the cellular phone providers but, we have been approached to lease to 911 apparatus, digital paging services, we would lease to whom ever we could fit on the tower.

President Anderson asked, when a tower like that collapses, what way does it collapse, straight down? If it ever collapses.

David Gillman stated, I do have a certified engineer’s statement on that particular question, Exhibit A. Self supporting criteria for self supporting towers if a tower failure would occur and there has been none documented except for a plane it would need 30 percent of the tower height so that would be 75’ and I will submit that as additional evidence with this case.

President Anderson stated, that’s still well within the radius…

Attorney Altman stated, not more than 75’, I’m trying to get a dimension here is what I’m really trying to do. It’s close to 100’.

Jay Clawson asked, does anyone know what DC&M Enterprises are?

Director Weaver asked, where are you seeing that Jay?

Jay Clawson stated, there is a little narrow strip to the North.

Director Weaver stated, I think that’s where Dwayne's World is.

President Anderson asked, these towers, are they all capable of doing this?

David Gillman stated, no, we do have guide towers, this particular tower is a self supporting towers.

President Anderson stated, self supporting tower.

David Gillman stated, self support structure.

Jay Clawson asked, did you guys do the one by his sons building in Wolcott last year?

David Gillman stated, I know that I have had one in Wolcott but, I don’t believe that we did one there.

Director Weaver stated, that was Verizon.

Jay Clawson stated, it’s probably going to be similar to what they put in over there.

Director Weaver stated, we had a nod of a head back there. Toni Hancock is with this group, we work with her quite a bit and she is familiar with that tower.

David Rosenbarger asked, what is the special exception?

Director Weaver stated, any tower requires a special exception.

David Rosenbarger asked, is that because of the height?

Director Weaver stated, yes.

President Anderson asked, do we have anyone here in the audience with any questions about this? Do the Commissioners have any other questions? If not, I say let's go ahead and vote.

With no further discussion the Board voted.

The results of the vote were as follows: 7 affirmative and 0 negative. This will be presented to County Commissioners for their action.

Attorney Altman stated, that will be next Monday at 8:30 in the morning, right here.

#749 Fred H. Jr. & Shirley Boessel; Requesting to rezone from B-2 to L-1 on the North 160’ of lot #1 in Boessel Subdivision. The property is located in Monon Township at 6464 N. Bedford Bay Court.

Director Weaver stated, that one has been tabled too.

President Anderson stated, okay, that has been tabled.

****

#750 Walter Novaski (Area Welding); Requesting to rezone from A-1 to I-1 on .912 of an acre. The property is located in Liberty Township at 6009 E. State Road 16.

President Anderson asked, these are out in Liberty Township that you need to upgrade them to meet the zoning codes on them?

Director Weaver stated, yes, this property is not zoned properly for this business that is located on it.

President Anderson asked, do we have anyone here with any questions on this request? Do the Commissioners have any questions about the request? If not I say let's go ahead and vote.

Attorney Altman stated, for the record Director Weaver, this is one that should have been that way when the Ordinance was adopted for Liberty Township and just didn’t get done.

Director Weaver stated, that’s right.

Attorney Altman stated, I know that the staff has spent a lot of time to get that done but, some things get missed.

With no further discussion the Board voted.

The results of the vote were as follows: 7 affirmative and 0 negative. This will be presented to County Commissioners for their action.

****

#751 Otto Richard & Patsy Sue Leis (Leis Machine); Requesting to rezone from A-1 to I-1on 1.996 Acres. The property is located in Liberty Township at 6033 E. State Road 16.

President Anderson asked, this is another one that they have to upgrade the zoning to bring them into compliance?

Director Weaver stated, yes.

President Anderson asked, is there anyone here with any questions about this request? Do the Commissioners have any questions? If not let's go ahead and vote.

Otto Leis asked, there is one question that I have about this, is there any way to waive the zoning fee on this because of the Zoning Board never acting upon this?

Attorney Altman stated, the Board does not have that authority.

Otto Leis stated, okay.

President Anderson stated, if we could, we would.

Attorney Altman stated, it isn’t in the Ordinance, is why I say that, the Board does not have the authority.

With no further discussion the Board voted.

The results of the vote were as follows: 7 affirmative and 0 negative. This will be presented to County Commissioners for their action.

Attorney Altman stated, right here 8:30 in the morning.

President Anderson asked, and you are?

Terry Fisher was representing this request.

President Anderson asked, you’re representing the request on this?

Terry Fisher stated, yes.

President Anderson asked, do we have any questions in the audience at all? Do the Commissioners have any questions?

Director Weaver stated, again, this is a similar situation except, this has a home on the property, or did have a home on the property, is the home still there? I did not make it up to this property but, they are wanting to replace that home and in order to do that they have to get it rezoned first but, it’s not properly zoned at this time.

President Anderson stated, if we do not have any questions at this time, I say that we go ahead and vote.

With no further discussion the Board voted.

The results of the vote were as follows: 7 affirmative and 0 negative. This will be presented to Town of Monon for their action.

Attorney Altman stated, you had better check with the Town Clerk to see when they will be able to act on it. We will certify it tomorrow but, it has to be mailed up there so you need to check with them.

Terry Fisher asked, there’s no problem if I tear the house down is there?

Attorney Altman stated, it’s not rezoned.

Director Weaver stated, it’s not rezoned yet.

Terry Fisher stated, I can wait.

Director Weaver stated, you can tear it down, with the understanding that if they don’t pass it, you are not going to be able to put a house back up.

Terry Fisher stated, I’ll wait.

An audience member stated, so it’s now up to the Town of Monon?

The Board stated, yes.

****

#753 Fred J. Geyer II (Krystil Klear Filtration); Requesting to rezone from A-1 to I-1 on 1.21 Acres. The property is located in Liberty Township at 5900 E. State Road 16.

President Anderson asked, is this another one of those?

Director Weaver stated, yes, it is.

Fred Geyer stated, yes.

President Anderson asked, and you are Fred Geyer?

Fred Geyer stated, yes.

President Anderson asked, do we have anyone in the audience with any questions about this? Is there anyone that has any questions about this? If not I say let's go ahead and vote.

With no further discussion the Board voted.

The results of the vote were as follows: 7 affirmative and 0 negative. This will be presented to County Commissioners for their action.

#258 Marvin Johns; Requesting primary and secondary approval of a 1 lot subdivision to be known as Johns Subdivision on 1.550 Acres. The property is located in Liberty Township on the South side of State Road 16, just West of C.R. 700 E.

President Anderson asked, do we have anyone here representing this request?

Marvin Johns Jr. was present to represent this request.

President Anderson asked, do we have anyone in the audience with any questions about this request?

Kerry Hickman asked, I’m just wondering, the part of the property that borders my land, what is going to happen with it?

Marvin Johns Jr. stated, what happened is, I sold my house and 5 acres. I have 6 ½ acres. Director Weaver told me that I had to keep, when I originally started going through this, Director Weaver said that I had to keep at least an acre. So rather than to give that ½ acre, the extra ½ of an acre to the new homeowner, I kept a ½ acre which, Jim Milligan laid it out for me. Which is, I think, that it’s 30’ along the backside of Mr. Hickmans property is the only reason that it worked out that way.

President Anderson asked, is that the piece of property that you’re asking about? What exactly was your question?

Kerry Hickman stated, I didn’t know….

Marvin Johns Jr. stated, what is going to happen to it is, I will keep it with the acre. Actually, it’s going to be an acre and a half, it borders the highway.

President Anderson stated, right.

Marvin Johns Jr. stated, to square up what I had sold with the house.

President Anderson asked, this is on the…

Kerry Hickman stated, when I originally read this in the paper, I’m not being a surveyor or an engineer of any type, I just figured that the way it was stated, I figured that it was all behind me. I didn’t want a 5 or 6 house subdivision because, the property wouldn’t support it.

President Anderson stated, he can’t build anything like that.

Marvin Johns Jr. stated, what I had done was square this up…

President Anderson asked, this property sits here?

Marvin Johns Jr. stated, yes, Billy Conwell is here and Kerry Hickman here.

President Anderson asked, so, he doesn’t border you here?

Marvin Johns Jr. stated, no.

President Anderson asked, that little piece behind you there is nothing that he can do with it, he can’t put anything on it.

Kerry Hickman stated, I didn’t know it, he never talked, we never talked.

President Anderson asked, but, that was your question on it?

Kerry Hickman stated, right, because, I just assumed that he was going to put in several properties.

Marvin Johns Jr. stated, no, just the one piece of property is all that I want to do.

President Anderson asked, that’s where he is going to build right here?

Marvin Johns Jr. stated, yes.

President Anderson stated, he has to build within these limits and he can’t put a house other than that spot.

Marvin Johns Jr. stated, right. I have plans for a house, there was a trailer up here, I moved it and I was going to build up there.

President Anderson asked, do the Commissioners have any questions?

Attorney Altman asked, what is the reason for that tract? Is it access to go somewhere?

Marvin Johns stated, no, what it is, I have 6 ½ acres there and I squared it off….

President Anderson stated, she told me that he needed at least an acre.

Marvin Johns stated, I have a house back here, I have an additional 5 acres here and I have a house here. I’m selling the house and 5 acres so I squared that property up which left an acre and a half that’s why that is there, that’s the only reason. There’s nothing that I can do with it, I thought that I would plant fruit trees or something back there.

Attorney Altman stated, you certainly couldn’t build on it.

Marvin Johns Jr. stated, no, there’s nothing to do there but that’s the only way I can square that piece of property up with the house. It was a odd shaped piece of property when I bought it.

President Anderson asked, you have room for a well and septic?

Marvin Johns Jr. stated, there is a septic and well there now.

President Anderson asked, it’s already there?

Marvin Johns Jr. stated, yes, it’s on the highway.

President Anderson asked, do you have any objections to that?

Kerry Hickman stated, no, not from what he is saying there.

President Anderson stated, he can’t build on it, he can’t put anything on there.

Kerry Hickman stated, as long as it doesn’t end up for a storage area for all of his construction and it’s going to be a residential, not a business.

Marvin Johns Jr. stated, it’s all zoned agricultural right now.

Kerry Hickman stated, that’s my concern, detriment to the property up to this point and beyond.

President Anderson asked, do the Commissioners have any questions at all? This has met all of the provisions for the subdivision?

Director Weaver stated, for the primary, yes. Jim didn’t get us the information for the secondary.

Marvin Johns Jr. asked, what was that?

Director Weaver stated, Jim didn’t get us the information for the secondary.

President Anderson asked, so all that we can do is primary?

Director Weaver stated, yes.

President Anderson stated, we don’t have the secondary so all that we can do is the primary. So I say let's go ahead and vote.

With no further discussion the Board voted.

The Primary Approval Request for a 1 lot subdivision to be known as Johns Subdivision located in Liberty Township, was approved by a vote of 7 to 0, based on a finding of fact that the Standards of the Subdivision Control Ordinance have been met.

****

#260 Lowell, Donald & Glen Stockment, Owners; Robert Wrede, Applicant; Requesting approval of a 10 lot subdivision to be known as Ten High Acres – Part 2 on 10.000 Acres. The property is located in Honey Creek Township on the Northwest corner of C.R. 225 N. and C.R. 300 E.

President Anderson stated, I don’t think that that we have anyone here for that. If not, I say that it’s tabled until the next meeting.

****

#261 Richard Wilken; Requesting approval of a 5 lot subdivision to be known as Russow’s Ridge on 3.099 Acres. The property is located in Union Township on the South side of Norway Road, East of the golf course.

President Anderson stated, do you want to state your name that you are here to represent your request.

Richard Wilken stated, owner of Russow Ridge.

President Anderson asked, is this for both primary and secondary?

Director Weaver stated, just primary, we do not have a drainage approval yet but, it has been submitted, so we will have that by the next meeting. I have not received any calls or concerns on this property.

President Anderson asked, does anyone have any questions about the request? Does it meet all of the Ordinances?

Director Weaver stated, to the best of my knowledge.

Attorney Altman stated, it certainly needs a drainage approval.

Director Weaver stated, and they are in the works of that.

Attorney Altman stated, so that’s something that you can make contingents on your primary voting and they would have to have it for the secondary anyway before they can get approval.

President Anderson asked, should we vote it conditional on the drainage?

Attorney Altman stated, I think that I would, there again, just to have it on there.

Jay Clawson stated, he doesn’t have the buildable areas….

Attorney Altman stated, that’s right.

Jay Clawson stated, but, it will be on the secondary plat along with the drainage.

Attorney Altman stated, approval.

Director Weaver stated, well Jay, he does, he only has the front ones on there. He only has the front setbacks on there.

Jay Clawson stated, 60’, he doesn’t have the other setbacks, the side setbacks. Normally, each time they do a subdivision you have a square where you can set a house front and back.

Director Weaver stated, measured setback line. On the side and rear setbacks that’s something that Jim has questioned, if that is something that is necessary to have on these plats.

Attorney Altman stated, yes.

Director Weaver stated, well….

Jay Clawson stated, but, he has everything on here, he just doesn’t have the lines drawn in there.

Director Weaver stated, he doesn’t feel like it’s a necessity….

Steve Fisher stated, it’s especially nice when there are existing buildings.

Director Weaver stated, I agree, I prefer it being on there.

With no further discussion the Board voted.

The Primary Approval Request for a 5 lot subdivision to be known as Russow’s Ridge located in Union Township, was approved by a vote of 7 to 0, based on a finding of fact that the Standards of the Subdivision Control Ordinance have been met.

Attorney Altman stated, upon receiving the additional information the drainage approval, which is applied for.

****

President Anderson asked, do we have any business?

Jay Clawson stated, one thing that we, as a City, ran into is there was a drainage permit given to, I don’t know what they call it, it’s a subdivision behind Schroeder.

Director Weaver stated, Westside Commercial.

Jay Clawson stated, that it was suppose to be done and they came in and started building and there was any real drainage done, so, what kind of situation are we getting into here. You’re requiring it but, they are getting permission to start building before these improvements are….

Director Weaver stated, well, we had a letter of credit for that and we were under the understanding that the drainage was all in.

Jay Clawson stated, they haven't done what they proposed to do…

Attorney Altman stated, it was certified by Mr. Couts, that it was done.

Director Weaver stated, right.

Charlie Mellon stated, the retention pond was never done.

Steve Fisher stated, there is a pit there.

Director Weaver stated, wait, there is a retention pond there…

Steve Fisher stated, there’s a pond there.

Director Weaver stated, yes, there is Charlie.

Jay Clawson stated, but, the situation where they said that the whole area was going to be drained to…

Director Weaver stated, part of that couldn’t be done either because of a lawsuit that is pending against the county.

Attorney Altman stated, you might check with the county surveyor and the gentlemen with the drainage….

Director Weaver stated, Todd Frauhiger.

Attorney Altman stated, they went out there and looked at it and we leaned on them as to approve it and I checked on the sewage system and all with the people in the City of Monticello and everyone seemed to think that it was just fine.

Director Weaver stated, we spent quite a bit of time on this.

Jay Clawson stated, they came to us wanting when they started construction on all of the apartment buildings there, there was really nothing done at that time. It seems to me like when they come for an application, that this work has been completed because I heard from several people that the work is not done. It’s suppose to be extremely dry and the project that they laid out to us here, what they were going to do, it came a reality like draining all of the water over to the Buss Ditch. They never went underneath the railroad or tile like they said that they were going to do or anything…

Director Weaver stated, I think that part of that is due to the lawsuit that is pending, but…

Jay Clawson stated, the thing is, right now, I don’t know with as low as that is, if they had a lot of rain if that whole project wouldn’t be under water. The thing is, we need to have some kind of thing in check that when they come in wanting building permits to the city asking us for approval, that this is checked off. There is no way because, I asked the guy and he said well, I don’t know, the developer so, there just needs to be more of a trail that when we approve something, for piece of mind. We have no recourse to go back after something is already done and we don’t want this guy to come back and say well, all of my apartments are flooded now.

President Anderson asked, they have to be approved for occupancy, don’t they?

Director Weaver stated, no, they are approved for occupancy. I don’t believe that there is anywhere in the ordinance that does not allow us to issue a permit as long as we have that letter of credit. It says that we can’t issue a permit prior to the improvements being in and also we need to do some work on our letter of credit. Attorney Altman and I did more than what the Ordinance says to get this done because, we did require a letter from an engineer stating that all of the improvements were done.

Attorney Altman stated, I don’t want it to be wrong.

President Anderson stated, if the drainage isn’t done, then the improvements couldn’t be done.

Jay Clawson stated, at the time that that started the construction he did not have any kind of approval that was done at the time that construction was started.

Director Weaver stated, it would have had to be done. We had to have a letter of credit for the improvements to be put in…

Attorney Altman stated, that’s what the letter of credit is for.

Director Weaver stated, it doesn’t say that it has to be done.

President Anderson stated, but, now it stated that it is done and it’s not done.

Director Weaver stated, that’s what it sounds like what Jay is saying. We have released the letter of credit yes, because of the letter that we got from the engineer.

Attorney Altman stated, if he’s wrong I would sure like to know about it.

Jay Clawson stated, unless they updated or changed their requirements of what they were planning on doing and did something totally different than what was submitted with the prior approval, with the subdivision request. When they did the subdivision they showed this, this and this and if they changed the project, they didn’t come back and say that we’re amending our drainage to show us. I think what got questioned on it was someone had a previous drainage plan and it wasn’t quite planned out exactly what the first drainage plan was in there. It may have been like they said at one time they planned on drainage all of the way over to McGill Manufacturing and that whole area.

Attorney Altman stated, and that went bye bye.

Jay Clawson stated, but the thing is…

Attorney Altman stated, they still have to meet the drainage standards…

Jay Clawson stated, they might have resubmitted it to Todd but, no one ever gave that information to the city, I don’t think.

Director Weaver stated, they did resubmit to the Surveyor’s Office, I’m almost sure of that.

Jay Clawson stated, that may have done that but, I don’t think that Doug ever got an update.

Director Weaver stated, maybe that is something that we need to address with the Surveyor’s Office.

Jay Clawson stated, they need to, if there is an amendment on subdivided property we have to have that because, we have paperwork filed on that, the approved.

Attorney Altman stated, it’s certainly something that I think that we need to get to it.

Jay Clawson stated, that’s fine just like if there is an amendment that needs to be put with everyone’s file in the county subdivision you have control of everything but, when we have someone that wants to build we have to have secondary approval and if you guys change something…

Attorney Altman stated, let's meet with Director Weaver and go over that file and make sure that it is all there and the way that you want it.

Jay Clawson stated, Couts knows that we had to sign off on it so there is probably was an updated one.

Attorney Altman stated, but let's look at it.

Director Weaver stated, I think something that is coming that is going to help us with this situation too is our Building Inspector. The Ordinance says that it’s the Building Commissioners job to inspect the improvements for the subdivision and he does have some knowledge of how those improvements are to be put in so I think that is going to be a benefit to us.

Greg Bossaer stated, this is something totally different but, our building inspector did send out a packet of information if anyone has any comments I know that he would appreciate it.

Director Weaver stated, a lot of the differences are, his fees for doing the inspections.

President Anderson stated, he doesn’t feel like the county should have to pay a whole lot for these inspections which I agree with him. If someone wants to build something they should foot the cost of the inspections.

Director Weaver stated, when he takes over we will no longer be issuing building permits, he will be doing that.

 

Don Ward asked, through you?

 

Director Weaver stated, through us, but,, it will be his signature that will go on them.

President Anderson asked, is he using any of your secretaries?

Director Weaver stated, yes. Something too that goes along with this we’re going to have to repeal parts of our Ordinance and Attorney Altman and I hope to have that ready and to the Board next month.

Attorney Altman stated, our Ordinance talks about a building permit and an occupation permit he will need two.

President Anderson asked, do we have any more business?

Director Weaver stated, Jay, back to the drainage, if we do feel that there is a problem I said something to President Anderson that we do have money to hire an engineer go out on our behalf and inspect. So that’s something that I just want to remind you that we do have that ability to do that.

President Anderson asked, do we have any other business?

Jay Clawson made a motion to adjourn.

David Rosenbarger seconded the motion.

The meeting adjourned.
