Announcement: 3 - Public present. Colin Combs (Twp. Supervisor), Mary & Raymond Smith. The Smith’s asked about an ordinance requiring setback from property line for fire pits. It is the belief of the planning committee, that fire pits are no different than an auxiliary structure, and should be governed by the 10” set back rule. Jim C. will look at it and report back at the next meeting. Gary V. updated the committee on the Center road law suite. Carl brought up his talk with Gary from ISPMGT, they now think the tower will have to be 80’ - 100’. Carl will call and invite them to our next meeting. The are putting a tower up on West Branch Dr. The planning commission would like them to provide information on what and where the are putting these towers.

The price of the yearly sign fee will be $100.00 for 4’ x 4’ and $200.00 for a 4’ x 8, with a permit being required for all signs in the Township. Much more discussion on signs and enforcement. We now need to address all signs in the township must be notified of there need for a permit. Rental Property permit was discussed, Rex and Colan met with the Health Department and they have a formula for rental property, that works off the capacity of the system. This tells the number of people renters can rent to. (We do not know the fee they charge for this inspection). The Fee for a Rental Permit is $350.00 yearly.
