The board also received a complaint about a lot of dust on Pleasantview.

Building Inspector’s Report: No report due to the absence of Shawn Whitney.

Other Business: Ed Seeburg a resident of Anderson Acres who had a complaint about the constant motorcycle nice coming from his neighbor’s residence. The noise goes on all day and late into the night. He has talked to the neighbor Owen Walker. Mr. Walker’s response is it is his property and he can do what he wants with it. The board said they could not do much right now. There would have to be a change in the noise ordinance and make it stronger @ the annual meeting and election in March of 2017. They also suggested Mr. Seeburg get on the agenda @ a Burleigh County Commission meeting to see if he could get some help from the county commissioners.

Grady Wolf had a complaint about a number of cars being stored on a piece of property by him. There are approximately 300 cars on the property. Brandon Schock said a fence will be put on the propertynorth of Lincoln and the cars will be moved. Ms. Sara Krein from C&K Auto was at the meeting and she stated they were trying everything they could to get the cars off the property. There have been delays from the City of Bismarck and with the engineering firm. She was asking for 2 more weeks to start moving the cars off the property. They have people lined up to haul the cars off the property. The board stated they did not have jurisdiction there and it was the City of Lincoln that would have to be contacted regarding this issue.
