The Village of Clyman Regular Monthly Board Meeting was called to order at 6:06 PM.
Also, present were Village attorney Katherine Koepsell, Mike Siegel and a number of citizens were in attendance.
The meeting was posted at the Clyman Post Office, Clyman Village Hall, Clyman Lions club and on the Village of Clyman Website.
Request to speak Mike Siegel – Mike said he is going to be submitting a conditional use permit application for 942 Main St. He would like to put apartments in the current space where the Hardware Store is, this is just the start of him looking into this. Mike said that If it can be worked out for him to get the conditional use permit, a building permit and he can financially afford it that at the time those permits would be approved he would be willing to surrender the current license. If a way to put in the apartments isn’t figured out, he will have to sell and then he isn’t going to give up the license and the building would be sold with that license.
Another thing he wanted to address was the nudity violation. Mike said that we could litigate and go to arbitration, but he felt it would cost the Village more than what he would get fined to litigate it. Mike said he would cooperate any way he can.
Katherine pointed out that this would be a two-track procedure, the Village Board would need to decide if they want to amend the Ordinance that restricts dwelling on the lower level of a business and then they would need to decide if they want to grant the conditional use permit. For both you would have to have a hearing. You can hold both hearings at the same time and they both require a class 2 notice.
Superintendent Comments – Tim was not able to be here tonight so this will go on next month’s agenda.
Minutes- Minutes from the previous meeting had been provided to the Board. Motion byBeth/Mike to approve the minutes as presented. Motion carried.
Citizen Comment- Father Mike Erwin, Dan and Laurel Finger, Julie Plumits, and Heather Oneson all spoke advising the Board to do what is in the best interest of the community when considering the Conditional use permit for 942 Main St.
Ordinance Officer Report – There were no questions on the report.
Village Trustee Position– Beth said that we received one letter of interest and that was from Todd Grady. A motion was made by Beth/Mike to accept Todd Grady for the open Village Trustee position. Motion carried.
Fire Department Reports – There were no questions on the report.
Delinquent Utility accounts Report– There were no questions on the report
Personnel Hours Report – There were no questions on the report.
Budget Report– Clarification that this report is still for 2018 not 2019.
Invoice and paid bill Report – Motion made by Beth/Mike to pay the bills, Motion carried.
Archiving Minutes– Beth would like to get the past minutes typed up on the computer and then we can categorize them. To make it easier to find information you are looking for from previous minutes. Nothing would change with the original minutes they would just be copied and categorized. We would ask for volunteers to type them up and work on this so it would not cost the Village anything.
Next Meeting - February 25 at 6:00 pm
Adjournment – Beth/Mike made a motion to adjourn. Motion carried.
Meeting adjourned at 6:45pm
