Bob is also suggesting/recommending we rewrite the townships comprehensive plan. Bob will invite Bob Colson to one of our town meetings as he would help us figure a new plan to present to the residents. A survey would also need to be sent out to residents which the Plan Commission will work on. Consensus of the board was for the Plan Commission to go ahead with the start of this process.
Fire/Ambulance Report: A study will be done for vehicle types, buildings, space, ect. This study will be bid out and cost approximately $2500-$3500.
New Business: Fireworks Permit – Bob gave sample copies of a fireworks permit from a few different sources to Rich and Val. We will write up one to suit our township’s needs.
Humane Officer – Bob has been trying to get a hold of the Dunn County Animal Control Officer who hasn’t been able to attend our meetings. In speaking to the officer on the phone he told Bob that essentially it is up the District Attorney on how dogs are dealt with. Rich and the supervisors will meet the DA and see what can be done with the problem dog owners in our township.

Town of Stanton Plan Commission Minutes: August 27, 2013
Chairman Bob Anderson called the meeting to order at 7:00pm. Members present: Cheryl Hoffmann, Joel Wittenmeyer, Pat Smith.
Minutes of the July 23, 2013 meeting were approved. Hoffman/Wittenmeyer.
Bob talked with Bob Colson from Dunn County about the Township’s Comprehensive Plan. Colson will come to the September PC meeting to help the commission get started on revision of the plan. The state and the county must be notified of this update. The Town Board is in favor of the update.
Prior to having any public meeting/open house, the PC will redo the land use map incorporating new zoning districts. The PC will also look at past surveys to determine if questions need to be added or removed before new surveys are sent out.
Bob talked with Terry Dunst about the proposed Regulation of Business ordinance. Terry pointed out that someone in the township must be responsible for issuing citations. Once issued, the township is responsible for any further action. It was the consensus of the PC to give the proposed ordinance along with the business applications to the Town Board for comment/approval. With reference to the business application process, the PC noted that existing businesses would be grandfathered. The application is designed to be informative rather than restrictive.
There were some discrepancies noted in the Dunn County Zoning Ordinance and Supplementary Use Regulations. Questions and comments should be emailed to Pat Smith. Questions and comments will be compiled and sent to Cleo at Dunn County Zoning.
Meeting adjourned at 7:45pm. Wittenmeyer/Hoffmann.
