Chairman Olson opened the meeting.

Supervisor Zent made a motion to approve the minutes of the previous meeting. Supervisor Selzler seconded the motion. The motion passed with Supervisors Zent and Selzler and Chairman Olson voting in favor.

School board Report: No report

Zoning Board Report: :  Abatement on  Philip Couch  property, Chairman Olson will call Kevin to verify. 

Assessor’s report:  Two applications were received for township assessor position. Interviews will be set in August.  Chairman Olson stated that township board signed a contract with Van Guard under some pressure [pressure of making sure that all residents of township are taxed fairly].  Since township signed the contract, will have more say into what goes one with the assessment.  Residents are encouraged to allow assessor into home so that an accurage appraisal can be obtained.

Township was sent a bill for properties that were missed during the year and not assessed so the county had them assessed. Chairman Zent didn’t think township should pay twice for 35 homes. Chairman Zent feels these plots should be excluded from the reassessment since Burleigh County just assessed the properties. Chairman Selzler made a motion to not pay the bill until we get the situation figured out.  Chairman Zent seconded the motion.  The motion passed with Supervisors Zent and Selzler and Chairman Olson voting in favor.

Chairman Zent feels that VanGuard will not find much in discrepancies in the Apple Creek Township.

Building Inspector’s Report:

Letter should be sent out; a form letter that will advise owners a permit is needed to obtain permission to build; general guideline is that structure with a roof on it needs a permit.  Craig recommends 60 days maximum for resolution of property issues. 

Motion from Chairman Zent to have a letter sent to Harmony Stables and Stoppler’s indicating that building permits are required and to contact Greg Hillig.  Chairman Ken 2nd the motion. Supervisors Zent and Selzler and Chairman Olson Approved.
