Murphy motioned to approve the minutes from the July 5, 2011 meeting. Anding seconded, motion passed.

 

Gauger Salvage - was tabled from last month.  Would like to double the number of cars stored from 650-700, currently stored, to 1300. They would like it stated in the minutes that the town board is not concerned with the number of employees they have. Anding think there should be a number. Anding wants to be sure there is not contaminates and that the town is not going to be liable in the future. He wants something in writing. They have storm water permit. Scott is licensed to remove freon. They work with the DNR and they inspect the property every year. They have disposed of 10,000 tires since Jan. 1, 2010. Scott thinks a max number of employees they would ever have is 25. Numbers were discussed but no action is needed. Zoning on mini warehouse lot is B3. Salvage yard is B4. They would like to sell new car parts and have a Gauger Auto Parts or some kind of store. They are not expecting a larger volume of traffic. They are expecting to sell more to their current customers. They run a small route where they deliver used parts. They would use the same truck and sell new parts as well. Murphy would like a list of all the licenses and expiration dates. New and used auto parts needs to be on the conditional use permit along with an increase in car storage. Thursday we will meet to discuss this at 7:00 pm.

 

Hottman motioned to adjourn. Anding seconded, motion passed.


ARENA PLAN COMMISSION

August 4, 2011

 

PRESENT:  Bill Gauger, Dave Lucey, John Wright, Bob Murphy, Rod Anding, Sheryl Schmidt, Minnie Gauger, Mary Lockman, Dick Lockman, KayDee Maxwell

 

Meeting was called to order at 6:05pm by John Wright.

 

Gauger Salvage - Update their conditional use permit to add "sell new and used auto parts" and double the number of cars stored to 1300. We are going to leave the number of employees as a discussion and nothing more at this time. We have copies of all of their permits. Schmidt motioned to update the conditional use permit to store 1300 cars and sell new and used auto parts. Anding seconded, motion passed.

 

Public comments - Anding doesn't think we need to pay for three town board members to attend every meeting. He thinks it is a waste of money. Maybe only one board member attends each meeting. Wright thinks one member should be present at least. This way we can save some money.

 

Anding motioned to adjourn. Schmidt seconded, motion passed.
