PLANNING AND ZONING: Zoning Administrator Oleson provided pictures from a site visit he and Supervisor Wright made to the Dropik farm this afternoon.  They depict improvement in the clean-up process.  Consensus to have Oleson send a letter to Mr. Dropik reminding him the court order is still in place and that compliance needs to be maintained.  If the property ceases to be in compliance, the town will be obliged to place vehicles in storage.

Oleson reported that the final plat for Wosepka Acres will be on an upcoming agenda.

Oleson reported he had spoken with a developer regarding two lots on Geneva Golf Club Drive.  A buyer is interested in purchasing both lots; however, they want to build across the common lot line between the adjacent lots.  Oleson remarked this could be accomplished through a minor subdivision.  Chairman Eldevik inquired if the two lots could be combined without going through the platting process.  Wright, seconded by Oberg, made a motion to allow the two lots to be combined under one parcel provided the assessor’s office grants approval.  Motion carried unanimously.
