Scott Daffron:  No old business moving onto new business can I have a motion for approval of 15-11 Replat of Lots 1 & 2 of Ainsley Plat No. 1 – now known as Lots 1A & 2A – Judene & Gregory Ainsley.

 Charles Peck made a motion for approval of 15-11, seconded by Bill Sasse. 

 

Scott Daffron:  Who do we have to represent this tonight?

 

Judene Ainsley:  Judene Ainsley.

 

Scott Daffron:  Just out of curiosity, why the replats?

 

Judene Ainsley:  We’re just squaring the lot back off.  The gentleman next door previously, Mr. Painter, had purchased or we gave him that back lot because he had a big garden back there. Now the house has sold the new gentleman does not want to maintain that back part anymore so we’re just squaring it back off to the original way it was.

 

Scott Daffron:  It was kinda a strange little piece.

 

Charles Peck:  Yeah.

 

Patrick Wilson:  You represent your neighbors as well?

 

Judene Ainsley:  Yes.  They’ve all signed off on it.

 

Don Wittman:  Typically with the replat I don’t have to provide a second map but if you see the Ainsley Plat No. 1 the second sheet in you packet, that’s how it is now.  It appears on the auditor’s website.  And then the new one is essentially taking that small section and incorporating it into Lot 1.

 

Jim Chubb:  That was never sold I mean you let the guy use?

 

Judene Ainsley:  Yes.  He, originally Mr. Painter, we put a fence up and he traded us two foot or five foot just for the fence line.  And then he kept the back part where his garden was.  He and his wife did a lot of canning and a lot of stuff.  Then when he sold the property, Mr. Hair now does not want to maintain all that yard back there.  It’s just an open strip. We replanted grass and stuff back there now. And he’s elderly and he just doesn’t want to bother with mowing it.

 

Charles Peck:  And you are? You like to mow?

 

Judene Ainsley:  Miles well…

 

Bill Sasse:  It’s only a little square about like that.

 

Charles Peck:  Tractor works real good.

 

Scott Daffron:  Anything else?  Seeing none can we have a vote on 15-11?

 

Roll Call: Jim Chubb, yes; Scott Rowley, (absent); Bill Sasse, yes, Scott Daffron, yes;  Charles Peck, yes.  MOTION PASSED

 

Scott Daffron:  That approves your replat.

 

Judene Ainsley: Thank you.

 

Jim Chubb:  Go mow.

 

Judene Ainsley:  Ah, not tonight.  Maybe tomorrow.

 

Scott Daffron:  Anything else for discussion before we motion to adjourn?

 

Bill Sasse made a motion to adjourn, seconded by Charles Peck.

Roll Call:  Scott Daffron, yes; Jim Chubb, yes; Scott Rowley, (absent); Charles Peck, yes; Bill Sasse, yes; MOTION APPROVED.

 

Meeting Adjourned: 7:04pm.
