Odds and ends, renewing licenses and approving building permits were the main aspects of last week’s Clifton Town Board meeting.
The board agreed to recommend to the county the approval of a certified survey map for Don and Christine Vieregge, 433 New Century Drive, Hudson.
The Vieregge’s own three lots on either side of a ravine on 840th Avenue in Clifton. The lots are accessible through driveways on either side of the ravine shared with Randy and Karen Huppert, W11571 840th Ave., on one side and Doug and April Greene, W11667 840th Ave., on the other. The Vieregge’s have agreements with both families that the sharing of driveways will continue if the lots or existing properties are sold or built on, provided some conditions are followed, such as no building of a commercial business or parking lots for fishermen.
The Vieregge’s said they plan to record the agreements with the county.
“If you’ve got this recorded, that’s about all you can do,” Clifton Town Chairman Leroy Peterson said.
A building permit was approved for Mike Manteufel, W12455 851st Avenue, for a storage shed he will move onto his property, contingent on receiving the county land use permit and providing the board with building specifications.
A building permit was also approved for William Anderson, W12100 742nd Avenue, for a 12 by 18-foot detached garage built on a concrete slab.
The Town Board renewed liquor licenses for Clifton Hollow Golf Club, W12166 820th Avenue, River Falls, and Clifton Highlands Golf Club, N6890 1230th St., Prescott.
Bartending/server licenses were approved for Clifton Highlands employees Tom Brown, Rachel Johnson, Gwen Lysne, Mary Elliot, Paige Hood, Thomas G. Smith, Carly Jenny, Susan M. Smith, Kylen Feltes, William E. Holst IV, Ryan Timm and Todd Hausebildt.
Bartending/server licenses were also approved for Clifton Hollow employees Charles Egeberg, Matt Garber, Holly Frankenberg, Jessica Griffin, Heather M. Lee, James Farrell, Mike Tschida and Gretchen Egeberg.
While the board approved these licenses, there were concerns why no representatives from either golf club were present, in case of objections or issues with the licensing.
Town Clerk Judy Clement-Lee said she’s going to send a letter to each golf club requiring a representative to appear at future licensing hearings.
Clement-Lee also said that the town will hold an Open Book session from 3:30-5:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 29. During this time residents can look at their property valuations and discuss those figures with the town assessor.
Following that will be a Board of Review from 6-8 p.m. Those who wish to challenge their assessments can present their case.
The Open Book and Board of Review will take place at Clifton Town Hall, on County Road FF near the juncture with County Road QQ.
