Ken Weber explained a problem he is having with rezoning that was done in 2004.Weber’s application to change from agricultural to commercial property read “for advertising purposes.”The DOT is not allowing Weber to put up a billboard because zoning should not have been changed for advertising purposes only.There were no minutes from the 2004 zoning meeting due to the Zoning Director’s recorder malfunctioning.Weber collected affidavits from members of the Zoning Commission proving discussion occurred regarding a used car business and nail salon on the property.The DOT provided a copy of the Charles City Press article stating rezoning was needed to put up a billboard.The letter the Board of Supervisors received from Mike Milligan, Zoning Director, on behalf of the Zoning Commission recommending the zoning change and the motion made by the Board do not reflect any reason for the change.Weber stated he has also talked to Rep Mark Kuhn about the issue and the Board encouraged Weber to visit with Kuhn again.Weber is asking for the Supervisor’s support in cleaning up this issue.The Zoning Commission may need to readdress the issue before the Supervisors can take action..
