Adell zoning code rewrites continue

by Bernadette Mondloch Review Correspondent

ADELL – The Planning Commission is continuing its work revising the village’s zoning ordinance.

At their July meeting, the commission in favor of a rewrite of the setback requirements for accessory uses or structures as it referred to trees and shrubs. The rewrite will be taken up at their August meeting and, if approved, sent to the Village Board for their action.

Revisions to the village zoning map remained on hold until a later meeting in the fall.

The Village Board at its July meeting discussed the alley that runs behind the former county shed in the village.

The alley is in need of repair to allow residents whose garages are on the alley to get to their garages.

The current owner of the former county shed is not allowing residents to drive on what he is claiming is his property.

The board had earlier directed Director of Public Works Jeff Kreutzinger to obtain bids on repairing the alley to accommodate all involved parties.

Kreutzinger reported that the repairs would cost $7,500 for asphalt, grading and rolling. The board approved the project.

Adell Cooperative is in the process of developing new office space at 606 Tower Ave. The board approved a sign for the office building.

Trustee Kim Peterson reported that the firm which provided the village’s old banners is no longer in business, so she is in the process of obtaining pricing from other suppliers for replacement banners.

Village President Andy Schmitt said he has been receiving multiple complaints of a barking dog in the First Street area.

Village Clerk/Treasurer Kelly Rathke said letters have been sent to various owners concerning illegally parked recreation vehicles, which she said is a growing problem. If the violations continue, owners may receive violation notices and possible fines.

Building Inspector Walter Grotelueschen reported several instances where village residents failed to obtain a building permit before beginning work.

In both cases, Grotelueschen said, he has instructed the people involved to obtain a permit from the village.

The board approved parking on the north side of the R&S apartment building to address a situation where apartment residents had been parking illegally in a neighbor’s driveway. Two parking permits were authorized.

Kreutzinger reported that the Cross Connection Control Meter change outs are going very well. Twenty fliers were distributed and 19 of those residents called to set up appointments to change out their meter.

A meeting to discuss borrowing options for the Onion River wastewater treatment plant improvements, water mains and to review employee performance will be scheduled after an engineer reports his findings from a walk-through of the plant.

Trustee Andy Birenbaum, the village’s representative to the Onion River Wastewater Commission, recommended the hiring an independent certified engineer to walk through the plant and if any improvements are needed. The board approved, with money to be taken from the jointly-owned maintenance account.

Rathke reported that John Gasper from Workhouse is making changes to the utility system to prepare for the bi-monthly sewer and water billing.
