Bouril:  Discussion 6499 Cty Rd. K with Craig Hardy.  Both parcels will work for Hwy access.    Bouril wants two building sites since the property has been divided. It is under 40 acres and it is non-conforming. There is a building on the site now which is in the right of way of the highway.  That building would have to be taken down.  There is a building site on the 32 acres on the southwest corner of the property. Should be re-zoned from A1 to AR1.   Not on the 8 acre site. 


Discussion on contiguous property.  County says if you have 40 acres (farm) you have 2 building sites. Discussion will continue.


Public Comments:  None
