Russ Thomas updated the Board on our Five-Year Review of the Bennington Township Master Plan. No action taken.
The board reviewed the Proposed Amendment to the Shiawassee County Zoning Ordinance in regard to Accessory Buildings & Structures and Commercial Kennels. The Board expressed concern with the recommendation of a fence no less than 4 ft. in height to contain the animals. A 6 ft. minimum fence would seem more appropriate. No action taken.
