Crawford County Supervisors Adopt Zoning Ordinance Amendment

The Crawford County Board of Supervisors adopted the zoning ordinance amendment that addresses the decommissioning of structures such as wind turbine towers during Tuesday's weekly meeting.

The board held a brief public hearing before approving the third and final reading of the measure before adopting it. The supervisors also scheduled a public hearing for Tuesday, May 18th at 10 a.m. in regards to the reclassification of a portion of 165th Street from a level B road to an area service road.

Engineer Paul Assman reported that Crawford County received $860,000 in pandemic relief from the American Rescue Plan and he says that should go a long way in keeping projects moving forward. Assman also estimates that the county could potentially save up to $500,000 on secondary road management next year because of their material management this spring.

The board adopted a resolution establishing the temporary moratorium to gather information on new wind turbine tower construction and that is set to expire on July 1st. They also approved resolution to appropriating $18,225 to the probation and juvenile departments. The supervisors also took action on a tax abatement for a junked mobile home and will remove it from the tax base once they have the junk certificate in hand.
