1- Public comment concerning any issue that is not on this agenda.

There was no public comment

2- Swimming pool ordinance proposal. (Council requested)

The planning members discussed the swimming pool ordinance that Jaye Binkerd worked on this past month. They went through the proposal item by item making changes as needed to adapt this plan for the Town of Daniel.

Planning member Gary Weight moved to recommend the swimming pool ordinance that we worked on tonight to the town council. That the motion will be sent to the Planning Commission for final inspection and the Commissioners have 10 days for review. Planning member Barry Hobbs seconded the motion. Discussion: Planning member Kim Norris asked if we would send the revised plan to the council and was told yes. There was no more discussion. The vote was unanimous and the motion carried.

3- Council action update

The Council approved two contracts for the water system. The pump station and the electrical will be finished in a few days. The town has received additional money from CDBG for improvement of the water lines on Little Sweden Road and the lower section of 3000 South from Daniel Road to Big Hollow Road. The lower section of 3000 South will be done before winter and the work on Little Sweden Road will begin next spring with new pipe lines being installed.

Planning member Blaine Smith said that some people were complaining about the water pressure. Chairman Bunker explained that the pressure will improve when the 4 inch lines were replaced with 10 inch lines. It was mentioned that the Public Works Department needs to have their meters read. Chairman Bunker said he would take this suggestion to the Council for instruction.

4- Administrative issues. Permits, fees, planning actions, etc.

Chairman Bunker reported that letters had been sent and replies received concerning non-agricultural buildings coming into compliance.

Planning Member Barry Hobbs had received a letter from Charleston addressed to the Town of Daniel regarding the annexation of the Binggeli property. He showed maps to the Planning Members concerning the proposed annexation portion. Part of that property is zoned RA5 and borders the Town of Daniel and the Planning Members would like to keep this area RA5. It might benefit us to challenge the annexation and ask to have the RA5 annexed into our town or insist that they put in writing that it will stay RA5. Some of the Planning Members need to attend the Charleston meetings to stay on top of what is happening and to try to protect the RA5 parcel. The land owner wants to be annexed into Charleston. Lorie Hobbs will check to see if the County is in violation of the conditional use permit of this land. Also, the Letter of Notification Chairman Bunker received is from an engineering firm that owns the property which makes the letter invalid. In addition, there were no notices sent to neighbors of the

proposed annexation property. Chairman Bunker will talk to Mayor Duggin tomorrow and ask that the Town Council take action now and be pro-active in checking into this annexation.

5- Approval of 18 Aug 2010 minutes

Planning Member Barry Hobbs moved to approve the minutes of 18 August 2010 with Member Jaye Binkerd seconding. The vote was unanimous and the motion carried.

6- Motion to adjourn.

Planning Member John Glodowski moved to adjourn the meeting with Member Barry Hobbs seconding. The vote was unanimous and the motion carried.

The meeting was adjourned at 9:00 p.m.
