Consider and Take Action re: Request for a Class 4 Salvage Permit, J. Steele, 2421 State Hwy 19. John Steele appeared before the Board to discuss his intention to obtain a Class 4 Salvage Permit. Mr. Steele explained that he picks up unwanted vehicles and takes them to his place of business on state highway 19. There he removes the fluids, catalytic converters etc. When the vehicles have been thoroughly prepared for recycling, he transports them to Samuels in Madison. Following questions and answers and general discussion the chair indicated he was comfortable offering a letter of support noting that the vehicles would be limited to 10 and that all work was done inside a building and each permit renewal would be an opportunity for review. However consensus of the Board was to delay action at this time. The clerk will check with the county concerning the appropriate zoning and procedures for the salvage permit. Vern Pogue with talk with the person at the DOT. The item will be on the next agenda.
