The meeting’s agenda was short and began with the new business of amending the county’s zoning ordinance. Zoning officer Tim Pitrowski pointed out that Article 5, Section 18, of the code is not needed and serves only to complicate the process currently being followed with telecommunications antenna and tower standards.
He said the section contains boilerplate language that goes beyond the scope the county needs.
County Attorney Frank Childs agreed the section should be deleted from the code.
Following Pitrowski’s recommendation, the commissioners unanimously voted to remove the section from the county code.
County Administrator Mike Underwood presented board members with a handout of information about paperless agendas. The idea was brought up at the commissioner’s strategic planning session.
