BOYCEVILLE—The Village Board held two Public Hearings on the request for Conditional Use Permits during their regular monthly meeting Monday evening, August 12. One was to allow for the construction of a Group Home and the other was to allow for an Auto Repair business on a residential lot.
First, Jesse Laine appeared before the board on her request to allow her to build a four-bedroom group home at 1430 Anderson Hill Lane. She pointed out to the board that it would be for four adults with special needs. Three village residents also spoke to the board in favor of her proposed home and after some discussion the board unanimously approved her request.
The other request came from Board member Lukas Montgomery to allow him to have an auto repair business from his home at 938 Center Street. Montgomery told the board about working at home for the ability to be near his pre-school age children and to work part-time on vehicles. He noted that his work would be light work on cars. Both village President, Gib Krueger and Board member Trude Chernak voiced their concern to the request because it is located in a residential area and that could open up others to request the same.
But in the end the board approved the request on a four to two vote with Chernak and Krueger voting against with Gilbertson, Jonathon Farrell, Keith Sorensen, and Brad Stevens voting in favor with Montgomery abstaining from voting.
