  1. Alternative Evergy Systems Ordinance Amendments Public Hearing – Chairman Bronson brought the public hearing to order. He explained that the purpose was for the Planning Commission to review the suggested amendments and then formulate a recommendation for the Township Board who had the power to enact them.  He noted that the commission members were supplied with a copy of the amendments from Laura Kreps of Carlisle Wortman, and a copy had been available in the township office for the public to review.  A short discussion by the board followed his introduction. Following that, the hearing was opened to public comment. There was none.

      At this time the board discussed some corrections and additions. A few items needed to be changed to remain consistent with the existing ordinance terms, such as “Special Approval Use” and “Building Official.”  The board also thought that the Decommissioning Plan and financial guarantees section should add language to be more explicit about the Township’s options following a review of the financial status as called for by the amendment. There were a few typos and cut and paste errors along with location references that needed to be addressed. Chairman Bronson was going to send his copy of the amendment suggestions to Ms. Kreps with all of the problem areas highlighted and an explanation of what was discussed during the meeting.

      Mr. Proctor stated that he thought it would be a good idea to have Ms. Kreps forward a copy of the revisions back to Mr. Bronson to make sure all of the corrections were done. Building Inspector Kolar asked about having a Solar Ordinance that covered Residential.  It was thought that there was already language in the ordinance covering this. With nothing further to discuss, Liaison Horkey made a motion to recommend to the Township Board to adopt the ordinance amendments with the suggested corrections. Mr. Proctor seconded this motion and all were in favor. Having concluded the public hearing, Mr. Sedlar moved with support from Mr. Proctor to adjourn the meeting and all were in favor, Public Hearing adjourned at 7:27 p.m.
