Picking up from the last meeting, the Lyon County Board of Supervisors continued deliberation in regards to the decision to either approve or disapprove of a two-part rezoning application for Groeneweg Family Farms 1 LLC brought forth by the Dollar General Corp. The board made its decision on both parts of the application, the 2.18-acre patch of land located outside of Larchwood that would contain the Dollar General store and its associated pieces and the 300-foot strip of land on the right side of the patch, lining the highway. The patch was approved by both the zoning board and the board of supervisors and the strip was disapproved by both parties due to the lack of a clear plan for that particular area after rezoning. Both decisions made by the board of supervisors were voted on via roll-call, 5-0 and 4-1, respectively.
Fiscal year department appropriations for 2019 were approved as well as a resolution which grants the county auditor authorization to issue checks to make payments without prior consent from the board. Instead, bills will be submitted to the board for approval during the next meeting following the payment. The 2017 tax assessment rates were reviewed and approved by the board.
The Village of Lester’s sign placement was tabled until the board can converse with county attorney, Shayne Mayer, about setting up a time for a public hearing.
