Township agrees on financing for arena remodeling

By Michael Jacobson

The Paynesville Township Board of Supervisors took the following actions at their meeting on Monday, April 26.

*The board agreed to finance the arena remodeling project with $90,000 in EDAP funds and $10,000 in revenue funds. The principal will be paid back to the respective fund by the Paynesville-New London-Spicer Hockey Association and all interest will go to the EDAP fund.

*The board accepted the low quote of 74.49 per pound for crack filling material for Old Lake Road from Astech in St. Cloud.

*The board accepted a quote of $19,662.72 from Caldwell Asphalt for sealcoating Cemetery Road and the roads in the Heatherwood Addition.

*The board approved a variance for Jeff Hoffman to construct a house within 35 feet of the centerline of Briarcreek Road.

*The board approved a variance for Kirby Larson to construct a mound septic system three feet closer to King Bee Lane than the normal setback requirement.

*The board set a public hearing for Kelly Mohr on Monday, May 10, at 8:30 p.m. for a variance on the setback to Cushing Road for an addition to his house.

*The board set a public hearing for Mohr on Monday, May 24, at 8:30 p.m. for a variance on the setback for a new drainfield.

*The board set a public hearing for a preliminary plat on Nockleby Estates on Breezewood Road at 8:45 p.m. on Monday, May 24.

*The board set a public hearing for Monday, May 24, at 9 p.m. for a variance request from Gary Condon, who wants to add a room to his home on King Bee Lane. While the addition would not normally need a variance, a variance is required because the home is too close to King Bee Lane.

*The board approved an easement with Carol Kramer to install a surface water drain pipe from near the intersection of Crystal Road and Cedar Point Road to Lake Koronis.

*The board noted that a public hearing, requested by Ken Evans and scheduled for Monday, May 10, for an off-sale liquor license was dropped because state law does not allow off-sale establishments within a mile of city limits.

*The board received a letter complaining about the accumulation of old cars on a property in the Koronis Oaks Addition. Township officials have been assured that all unlicensed cars will be removed by June 1, 2004.

Concerning the issue of horses on the same property, the board noted in a letter from attorney Ron Frauenshuh that a covenant exists in the Koronis Oaks Addition that addresses this, but currently the board of governors for the addition is not active. A new board would need to be formed by the landowners to address this issue.

*The board noted that a joint meeting with the Paynesville City Council, the ad hoc aquatic park committee, and the board of supervisors will be held at city hall on Wednesday, May 19, at 6:30 p.m. to discuss options for the proposed aquatic park.
