B. Zoning Ordinance Update—Public Hearing held June 8, 2010 (More regarding this topic in “New Business”) Frank explained that at the Public Hearing on June 8th Warren Utecht, consultant from Martenson & Eisele (M & E) summarized what has all transpired in the last year. The state has finally preapproved the Town of Lamartine’s Zoning Ordinance Update. This is the first plan in the state to be reviewed. There has been much red tape to get to this point. Some town property owners at the public hearing requested to have their land changed from a zoning of Agriculture to an Ag Transitional zoning. The Town Board would have to decide at the June Town Board Meeting if this land will be included on the future land use map as requested by the property owners (New Business “C”). The public hearing was held open and will be reconvening at a date to be determined, after the Town Board decides on the additional land requests to Ag Transitional. If the Farmland Preservation Zoning Map is changed the state would have to review the map again and a date to continue the public hearing would be set after the state review. Mike made a motion to change the order of the agenda to New Business B and C so this could all be discussed at one time. Bruce seconded the motion. Motion carried 3-0.
D. Board Action—M & I Contract Changes & Additional Charges to complete the Zoning Ordinance Update—Discussion took place regarding the recent Change Order (June 3, 2010 Revision) the town received from M&E. They were requesting an additional $2556.33 for extra work done to this point. They have given the Town a 28% or $1000.00 discount. Discussion then took place regarding a new “Agreement for Professional Service”, dated June 18, 2010. This scope of services is for zoning map recertification and ordinance revisions in the amount of $3065.00. Mike made a motion that the Town pays M&E the change order amount of $2556.33 now and pays the remaining $3065.00 when all is done and finalized and not before. Bruce seconded the motion. Motion carried 3-0. During the discussion it was decided that Frank would see if he could get either of these amounts discounted by M&E. Please watch for notice to reconvene this Public Hearing.
E. Board Action—Adding additional Ag Transitional land as requested by landowners to be added to the map(s) in the Town Zoning Ordinance currently being updated—Bruce made a motion to accept the additional Ag Transitional Land proposed on the June 14, 2010 zoning map. Mike seconded the motion. Motion carried 3-0.
