The Ford Council had asked for a permit to build a communication tower last year but then changed plans for a taller tower. This change classified the tower as a “Commercial” tower which required a “Special Use” permit. Todd had noted that all requirements were met for a special use permit.

A reference to Special Land uses for Recreational properties was looked at in description of property to clarify a point of use in the new zoning manual. A discussion followed on getting better service in this area.

A motion was made to pass the special use permit and a vote was taken with all four members voting in approval.

The next meeting will be July 14,2021

Meeting adjourned at 7:20 PM.

Lyle Monette, Acting Secretary for Mike Sikkenga
