Also present from the City of Manitowoc was Pat Nickels.

Chairman, Dale Markwardt, explained to Susan Hein the variance she received from Planning and Zoning.  Susan Hein explained that she had a pony named Licorice who was 27 yeas old.  Pat Nickels took over and explaimed that Susan lost her partner due to a tractor accident.  At that time Susan decided to sell the ranch house and live with Wendy & Rob Wetak.  The deputy constable went to Susan as there were complaints from the neighbbors, that the acreage was not big enough for a pony.

Susan purchased the property at 3709 South 15th St. prior to checking with Planning & Zoning.  She would need 2 acres to keep a horse.

The chairman explained that the board makes a recommendation but the board of adjustment makes the final decision.  The chairman asked for the people who were for the variance to speak.  Next he called for the people opposing the variance.  It was brought up that the residents did not want the manure and odor in their backyard.  A motion was made by Guy Gustafson to close the discussion.  Motion carried.  The town board moved forward opposing the variance that is coming up October 30th by the Board of Adjustment.  The board goes on record as there was a negative result.  The reasons for this is that it is a highly residential neighborhood, the small lot size and the complaints of the neighbors and from the odors from the manure.  It's a self-imposed hardship, bought the property well after she was made aware of the situation, sanitary problems, visual issues of a horse outside of your window, small lot size, and manure issues.  George Luebke made a motion pertaining to the letter received on the pony issue.  The board is negative and would not agree on the variance.  Seconded by Guy Gustafson.  Motion carried.  A letter will be sent to Reed Gaedtke.

Chairman, Dale Markwardt, asked if there were any questions or corrections to the minutes of the September meeting.  Chairman, Dale Markwardt, declared the minutes to stand approved.

It will be available in 2017, but it will go into effect in 2018. The builder has to come in with all the information such as the plans, energy work sheets like he always did. The only difference is that the builder can submit the application on line to the state but he still has to send it to the municipality. Once the municipality gets a permit form and they would be approved like always and electronically by the 15th of the following month after the permit has been finalized and issued, we would have to send that information to the state. A penalty if it is not done in that time the town would have to reimburse the builder for all the fees that he has paid except for the state seal. There are three ways to electronically submit these permits. Larry Maloney suggested that the builder file with the department so that all the information is filled out. Then they come to the town and bring their forms, plans, energy worksheet site plan and whatever we would require and that’s when the permit would be issued.
