          Board discussed Bass’s Property on Fond du Lac Ave - The board told that the Town of                                             Germantown does not have an ordinance for a set back on a major road so Chad Dhein                                           referred back to the State ordinance #60.61.5e-5m.  Basically stating that the house is                                               grandfathered in on its original foundation, if they change the foundation then they would  n                                       need to bring the set-backs up to code.  Jason told the board that he doesn’t know which way                                   they are going but wanted to start the process with the board. 


            Discussion concerning Eric Mills Garage - Paul Metz has received several emails from                                                 neighbors regarding concerns such drainage to the ditches, lift in his garage and his large                                         truck (with advertisement) parked next to his garage.  

* Regarding the water in the ditch - The ditches are part of the road easement, so is allow to                                        flow into the ditches.

* Garage Lift - Per Eric this lift is not a heavy duty lift and it only stores his car in the winter.  

* Large Advertised Company Truck - Per Town ordinances a homeowner can not have a                                             Advertised large truck parked in a Residential zone area.   We discussed this at length with                                       Eric and the Board came to the conclusion that Eric will have a 30 day grace period to remove                                   the truck from the property or will be fined.  The Zoning Administrator will be following up on                                     this matter.
