Announcement: 1 - Public present. Colin Combs (Supervisor)

Approval of Minutes: of August 20th. - Motion to approved minutes by Jenny Carroll and 2nd. By - Jim Carroll All As

Old Business: Carl went to Health Department to pick up list of inspections year to date. January 1st - August 1st. Colin attended our meeting with lawyers view of what we can do to enforce the point of sale ordinance. He passed out a copy of her response and we had a long discussion on, if / how / why / can we enforce it and who will enforce it. The bottom line is not recommended to go back in time on violators and to proceed slowly. Carl will try and get with Michel at Public Health for her opinions. Carl will also check on mobile signs and be sure they are included in our ordinance. (TABLED)

Z.B. - Jim Marker - N.A.

Z.B.A. 1 new variance hearing scheduled for Attached Garage 14-12 and 14-13 for addition.

New Business: Our talks continued on the Point of Sale ordinance. It was clear that work remains on this issue and the wording changed to get the Township Boards approval. The other issue is who will enforce it? Our enforcement officer, our Zoning Administrator or our Constables? The planning committee will draw up a procedure for the board to look at. Rex suggested that we put Planning up date in December News Letter. This article must be turned in by November 1st. A article in section 3 on rental of property in Second Twp. was added to require a permit for rental of property. ( our goal is to be sure the number of people using the rental does not exceed the septic capacity.) . We reviewed the list of questions Denise C. had sent us. Rex and Carl completed and send it back with updates and maps. Denise returned the Zoning packages and Carl sent E mails to the planning members and to Kathy to send to the township Board Members. The board will have to vote to adopt the Master Plan as written, for it to go into effect. If they so choose. We also need a vote by the board at the September 17th. Meeting to approve the sending out the ZONING DRAFT copy for public viewing and neighboring townships comments. If the board approves its release a public hearing will be scheduled for Saturday October 18th. @ 10:00 A.M..

Discussion & Home Work: Members will review Master Plan and Zoning section , prior to next weeks meeting.

Next Meeting: September 17th. @ 8:00 A.M. Rex will be out of town.
