Public Hearing on Amendments to Ordinance related to Parking Restrictions on Town Roads regarding citation amounts. The board is proposing an amendment, which would increase the citation amounts for parking on town roads December 1 through April 1. Section 3. Penalty of the Ordinance would now read as follows: “Any person who violates section 1, of this ordinance shall forfeit not less than ten nor more than twenty-five dollars for the first violation during the prohibited period beginning December 1 to April 1. The second violation, during the prohibited period shall forfeit not less than twenty-five nor more than fifty dollars. The third violation and all subsequent violations shall not exceed one hundred dollars. Each day, or partial day, of continued violation shall constitute a separate offense.

In addition, without limiting the authority of the Town to impose the forfeiture, the Town may cause a vehicle parked in violation of this ordinance to be towed at the owner’s expense.

No one appeared at the public hearing.

Consider and Take Action re: Blair Moldenhauer plan for rezone and road construction, section 17. Mr. Moldenhauer explained that he is planning to develop a driving range. The clerk requested that he talk with the Board concerning the previous developers agreements amendment regarding the completion of the road east of the cul-de-sac. In 2004 Mr. Moldenhauer signed an amendment to his developers agreement indicating that he would need to complete Deer Creek Run prior to obtaining an occupancy permit. There was lengthy discussion concerning the timing of any road construction. Moved by Doug Yelk, second by Vernon Pogue to amend the Developer’s Agreement of September 2, 2004, (with respect to road construction and occupancy permits) to say that “the Town Board will allow an exception for a recreational use building adjacent to the current finished roadway”. The intent is that a recreational use building can be given an occupancy permit, if it is built adjacent to the completed portion of Deer Creek Run, without impacting on the requirement to complete the road as described in the Developer’s Agreement amendment of 9/2/2004.
