Public Hearings

Mr. Caffrey came forward and was sworn in by the board attorney. Mr. Caffrey is a licensed land surveyor and represents Mr. Borstad the applicant. Mr. Caffrey presented a lot line revision.

Mr. Stoner would like to see a final description of the properties after completion along with both deeds.
