Approval of the plan commission meeting minutes of January 8, 2014: This item was postponed due to incorrect minutes that were distributed.   

Discussion and possible approval of Courtney Bungartz/Chris Lang request for a variance of building setback limits:     Stanley Sarauer made a motion to recommend to the Town of Cooks Valley town board to grant a variance from the Town of Cooks Valley if a variance is needed, because the setback limits are met regarding the property lines and the setback from the road was a county road.  The plan commission felt unsure of power to grant a variance of a county road.  Thomas Short seconded the motion.   The motion carried 5-0.

Discussion and possible approval of Don & Cynthia Swartz request for a variance of building setback limits:  Stanley Sarauer made a motion to recommend to the board to grant a variance request for a variance of building setback limits.  Discussion involved the small one acre size lot with septic system and well yielded with limited building sites.  The setback of 56 feet still allowed for visibility from the driveway access and allowed snowplowing.  Calvin Swartz seconded the motion.  The motion carried 5-0.

Future Agenda Items & Business:  no items were listed.

­­­­­­Adjourn:  Damian Prince made a motion to adjourn.  Stanley Sarauer seconded the motion.  The motion carried 5-0.
