Special Exception Permit – Ryan & Cletus Bass: Steve Sorenson presented a request for a special exception permit for Ryan and Cletus Bass to strip topsoil and stock pile the topsoil while widening an existing waterway over the next five years.

Conditional Use Permit – Cloud 1/Bug Tussel off Ekes Drive: Ken Franzen and Josh Furnald presented a conditional use permit for the construction of a communication tower on property owned by Jason Carr off Ekes Drive. This would allow Bug Tussel to provide wireless voice and internet service. The tower would be available to other carriers for collocation. Property owners with an Ekes Drive address noted that the portion of the roadway where the residences are located is a private road with an easement to access their properties. The private road is a 16.5 foot easement, is .7 of a mile long, and has a 16 percent incline. Mr. Carr’s property is at the end of this private road.
Residents expressed concern about the private road not providing public access to the site. Residents maintain the private road at their expense based on a maintenance agreement. Residents noted erosion problems with the road and suggested increased traffic would increase their road maintenance issues and expense.
The plan commission and town board recommend that the residents and Bug Tussel clarify the legal easement issues and work out a mutual understanding between all parties involved, including road upkeep. This item will be discussed again in January. Mead/Dorow. PASSED.
Bills were presented and paid. Treasurer’s report was presented.
