Matt Clemens was present to discuss issues of zoning for his property at 2265 55 th. St. Croix County has raised some concerns about his business of Midwest Truck Service. Mr. Clemens asked the Town Board for an informal recommendation for Commercial Zoning before he spends the fees necessary for a formal rezoning request. Chairman Lund and Supervisor North both stated they felt that a rezonement to Commercial for the site where he has his shop would be appropriate. No formal action was taken and some concern was voiced about possible future use of the site if the present use ends. Will be on the agenda if and when a formal rezonement application is received.
