Mr. David reported that he had issued no permits since the last meeting. Mr. David said he was going to send some letters out to residents about the buildup of junk or inoperable cars that are sitting in peoples’ yards. He said with the winter weather it’s hard for people to move these cars, but this will just be a reminder that the Oxford Township Zoning Resolution states that after 10 days, any inoperable vehicle must be house in a garage or barn out of sight. He said hopefully later this spring when things have dried up, people will either move or get rid of the vehicles in question.
