Lot #206   The property owner requested the board to allow for a new roof over the house to match the pitch and the height of the new garage roof.  The owner was informed by the board, further work would result in a cost of over 50% of the valuation of the original structure and would not be allowed under floodplain regulations.  The board explained they will not allow for variances of the floodplain regulation but would work with the owner toward solutions.  Options given were: 1. An independent appraisal of the original structure showing the actual valuation is above the assessed value; 2. Finish off the house roof at it's original pitch and size to prevent water damage; 3. Elevate the entire house to one foot above base flood elevation.

There being no further business to come before the board, motion by  Rydl to adjourn, second by Muntz.   All ayes.
