Bob Novak opened the meeting at 7:00 PM
Approximately 9 residents were present.
Bob Novak informed the residents that the purpose of the meeting is to discuss shed/building options.
He informed them that right now we are looking for input.
Bob Novak stated that an option size of a shed that we are looking at adding 50×46, keeping it under the 2400 square feet shed so no conditional use permit would be required.
The group discussed the future plans of additional equipment as this should be a factor in the building size and options.
Bob Novak informed those present that the township does now own a tractor and will be adding a mower. Temporarily the tractor is being stored at Mr. Novak’s residence at no cost.
Bob Novak informed the residents of an estimated quote for 50×40, heat, cement & insulated for ~$50,000 and that would not include the cost of land.
Bob Novak also informed the group that we can rent to store the tractor. He said there are options available for this. At this time he does not have any rental quotes to share with the residents.
Options discussed:
• Basic sized ‘shell’ shed to store the tractor on the township property
• Renting Silver Lake’s city shed or other private rental options
• Adding the shed right on to the township building
• Purchasing property to put up a shed
Residents have requested a long range plan with figures. Also are asking for building details as rental costs/locations, maintenance/insurance/security costs for a shed, itemized quotes for a shed along with shed types.
Motion made by Rodney Schmidt to adjourn the meeting, Bob Novak second the motion. Motion carried.
