Zoning Officers Report:  Mr. Lesniak reviewed his report with the planning commission. He has been to two trials for  court violations, one for 144 Ross Hill Road and the other for 116 Toolshed Lane/130 Cooper St.  Both defendants were found guilty and fined.

FOR THE GOOD OF THE ORDER

Mr. Bierly would like the Planning Commission to help develop a driveway permit ordinance.  He would like everyone who paves an existing driveway to get a permit so that it is installed correctly and will not damage any of our roadways.  Mr. Kunes pointed out that we already have a specifications in the zoning ordinance. Mr. Bierly would like to planning commission to review this and expand it where it may be needed.  It was suggested we look at College Township or other townships for  a model ordinance to follow in this regards.
