Bureau County Board

PRINCETON — The Bureau County Board conducted the following business at its Feb. 12 meeting at the Bureau County Courthouse in Princeton:

• Granted a conditional use permit to the Kasbeer Farmers’ Elevator Co-Op to build two grain bins and conveyors at the facility in Ohio Township.

• Granted a request from Lynn VanderMeersch to rezone property in Concord Township from B-3 and Ag to Ag to bring property into compliance with the county’s zoning ordinance.

• Granted a request for a conditional use permit from John Prostko to replace an existing mobile home in Selby Township with a manufactured home.

• Approved Heartland Bank and Trust as account holder for decommissioning funds for the Big Sky wind farm.

• Heard there has been a delay in getting agriculture buildings assessed because agriculture buildings do not require building permits. The board discussed requiring agriculture buildings to have a permit. The board took no action following the discussion.

• Heard from Buildings and Grounds Committee Chairman Kristi Warren there is still a leak problem at the Soldiers and Sailors Park monument. The leak was addressed a couple years ago, but the problem did not completely go away. The Otto Baum company has been contacted to examine the problem and determine what may need to be done.
