City Commission approves a handful of variances for residents

Posted: Wednesday, Oct 23rd, 2013

HURON – The City Commission has approved applications for variances ranging from a fence to a building addition.

They are:

• Tom Baszler, 1949 Wisconsin Ave. S.W., to construct an attached garage three feet from the north property line where a 10-foot side yard setback is required.

• Dan Kempf,, to subdivide the lot at 156 Colorado Ave. S.W. Code requires that lots platted after March 1, 2002 have a minimum lot width of 100 feet and a minimum lot size of 10,000 square feet in multi-family residential zones.

The current lot size is 50-feet-by-165 feet. The proposed lot will be reduced to 50-by-115 feet and the east 50-by-50-foot parcel will be added to 457 Second St. S.W.

• Elijah Rodriguez to operate a tattoo and body piercing business at 270 Kansas Ave. S.E. He has operated a shop at another location and has met all requirements of the city and state.

• Child Evangelism Fellowship of South Dakota, 602 Oregon Ave. S.E., to construct a 24-by-48-foot addition that will, including all other structures, be 357 square feet over the code.

• Fawn Olerud, 1175 Wisconsin Ave. S.W., to be allowed to keep a newly constructed six-foot-tall fence on the alley property line where code requires a five-foot setback if there is solid waste collection. There was a misunderstanding when the fence was constructed. Olerud must sign a waiver so that the city is not responsible for any damage caused by city equipment. She must make fence modifications for better visibility within 60 days, and pay a penalty for not obtaining a building permit.

Meanwhile, the commission entered into an agreement with Stockwell Engineers, a Sioux Falls consulting firm that will draft a master plan for recreation areas near the James River and Ravine Lake.

The plan will propose ideas for 80 acres of city-owned land, including the old pool site, Riverside Park, the fishing area, Crown Park and the north boat ramp on the lake.

Commissioners also:

• Accepted the resignation of Karen Weeldreyer from the Historic Preservation Board and appointed Shirley Apley to serve the remainder of the term. Weeldreyer, a member of the board since it was formed, has moved out of the district.

• Hired Jake Eichstadt as a volunteer firefighter.

• Approved additional pay for Dennis Bennett, assistant city engineer, as a blade operator during snow removal operations.

• Approved the regular full-time status of Jeff Dixon, solid waste maintenance employee, after his probationary period.

• Approved the transfer of a 2013-2014 retail on-off sale malt beverage and South Dakota farm wine license from Rinconcito Latino Restaurante to Yessica’s Restaurant, 334 Dakota Ave. S.
