Verification of Proper Posting

Holding Tank – Lulich Landscaping
Specht stated that this location does not have very many alternatives, and a toilet is need. Motion by Specht to grant conditional use permit, 2nd by Boyle. Discussion followed: Poe stated that Lulich has improved the property by putting in a business. The property is a great improvement when entering the Town of Germantown. Poe would like to see a provision put into the variance that if a sewer is put within 500 feet of the property that Lulich Landscaping, LLC would be required to hook up to the sewer, that this holding tank could possibly be only a temporary situation. Specht agreed that is a fairly reasonable request. Thompson also agreed that this is a reasonable request, but may create a problem if the sewer has to cross the road. Specht would like to know if the variance goes with the property if sold. Uphoff stated that a conditional use permit would be needed and could deal with that then. Specht withdrew his motion. Motion by Poe to approve variance as requested with the condition that if the sewer runs adjacent to Lulich Landscaping, LLC that this property would be required to hook up to the sewer within 6 months, 2nd by Boyle. Motion carried.

Adjourn Meeting
Motion by Specht to adjourn the special town board meeting at 7:05 p.m., 2nd by Gillespie. Motion Carried.

Chairman Jax declared the special town board meeting adjourned.


Respectfully submitted, Betth Manson, Clerk/Treasurer
