Roll Call taken and the following Village authorities announced present at the beginning of the July 26, 2011 Special Meeting. Attorney Barry Bright, Trustee Jean Ann Poehler, Clerk Jodi Daws, and Attorney Ron Young.

Attorney Bright stated that the purpose of this meeting was to serve as an informal appeal hearing per Robert Dow’s request regarding the Notice To Abate letter sent to Mr. Robert Dow on July 2, 2011. Mr. Young asked if the Village had a burn ordinance of any sort. Attorney Bright indicated that the Village does not allow burning in any ditch line, but the Village does allow burning as long as you use caution and that you be courteous to the neighbors. Mr. Young stated that Mr. Dow intends to get this completely cleaned up because he would like to eventually place a mobile home on the property but needs more time to get it taken care of. Attorney Bright informed Mr. Young that the Village has requirements that must be met when bringing a mobile home into the Village. A permit must be completed and presented to the Board along with photos of the mobile home for review. Bright further indicated that the mobile home must be 10 years or newer. Mr. Young asked for details of the conditions that need corrected. Mr. Bright indicated that there were weeds to be cut where the old house used to be, and there are two brush piles which need burned or removed. The village wants at least one of these conditions to be corrected within two weeks, with all conditions being corrected within four weeks. Mr. Young asked if Attorney Bright would send a confirmation letter allowing the extra time and manner of correcting the three conditions. Trustee Poehler stated that all of this would be okay with the Nuisance Committee.

Motion to adjourn at 6:50 p.m. made by Trustee Poehler.
