The Town of Seneca-Wood County is in need of two Zoning Committee members. Due to the Chairman resigning and another member moving out of the township, the zoning committee is looking for a person to serve as Chairman and one as a committee member. The Zoning Committee meets when a constituent requests a zoning change to their property. Currently the committee has met once a year over the last couple of years. At the meeting, the committee listens to the constituent’s request for a zoning change, reads through the town’s and state’s zoning ordinances and determines if it would be in the town’s best interest to grant the zoning change. A committee member is paid $20 per zoning committee meeting plus mileage, currently at $.56 per mile for 2021.
The Chairperson presides over the meeting and conducts some preliminary investigation into the request. The Chairman is paid $25 per meeting as well as mileage.
