<br />PUBLIC HEARING ON PETITION FOR REZONING TO COMMERCIAL DISTRICT FOR PEDERSON DAIRY.
<br />Affidavits of Publication, Posting and Mailing of "Notice of Public Hearing" were
<br />presented by Clerk, approved as to form and ordered placed on file. Village
<br />Attorney Hasselquist reviewed for the Council the matter of the Building
<br />Inspector's having erroneously issued a permit, some years ago, for a pasteurization
<br />plant on this property, believing it to be a proper use for this farm land inasmuch
<br />as the Pedersons were dairy farmers and he believed pasteurization would be for
<br />milk from the dairy farm, whereas in reality the plant has served as a pasteur-
<br />ization station for other dairies and as such is a commercial operation. Mr.
<br />Hasselquist told the Council that this mistake had come to the attention of
<br />Village officials about a year ago, when the Pedersons applied for an addition
<br />to their present plant; that the Planning Commission has considered the matter
<br />for some time and has now recommended rezoning to Commercial District on the
<br />grounds that the Village should not permit an illegal use of the property to
<br />continue, but considering, too,-that the Village does have some responsibility
<br />in originally granting permit for the plant; said rezoning to be restricted by
<br />covenant to use for pasteurization plant only. He informed the Council that the
<br />Pedersons have taken the legal steps necessary to place said restrictions on their
<br />land; that the Pedersons have agreed'to ask for no further rezoning on their 70-
<br />acre farm, with understanding that this restriction can be waived should more
<br />than 50% of the surrounding area be zoned for other than Open Development District.
<br />Attorney Josiah Brill, representing Pederson Dairy, was present to corroborate IM'r.
<br />Hasselquist's statements. There were no objections to the proposed rezoning
<br />registered at the Hearing, and no written objections had been received prior
<br />thereto. Dickson offered the following Ordinance, moving that the Council
<br />naive second reading thereof and adopt Ordinance as submitted:
