Case 05-23:  Mr. Tim Williams is requesting a variance of easements on his property located on Martins Chapel Road in the Autumn Hills subdivision. First reading. 

Mr. Williams advised the board that he needs to install a special septic system on his lot which will require the drainage easements to be changed (removed).  Mr. Williams also requested a variance of the 60 foot required house setback. He wishes to place his house on the lot in a manner which will only allow a 40 foot setback. 

After some discussion and review of the plat, Mr. Cooper advised the Board that Mr. Williams written application does not provide adequate reasons to change the setback. He advises Mr. Williams that he must observe the 60 foot setback. 

Mr. Cooper advises that Mr. Williams will have to submit an amended plat in order to get the drainage easement off.  Mr. Williams expresses concern that his home construction has been delayed. Mr. Cooper suggests this case can be presented to the Planning Commission, meeting immediately following, so Mr. Williams's home construction will not be delayed any longer.
