Margaret Gitter presented her request and answered various questions (rental time frames, acreage designations, hunting and fire department concerns) and that she has been in contact with county/state officials in order to comply with all requirements. She does not want to make it too commercial and plans to be at the July County Board of Adjustments meeting. Pat Flint explained that they would be responsible to basic rental laws/conditions even though it is not the same as ordinary rental of properties. Dennis Rehr related his recent discussions with Sauk County Planning and Zoning related to this request and that similar requests have recently been approved in Spring Green and Baraboo and cannot think of any special conditions that need to be added to this request. The discussion resulted in the following:
