9.     RECOMMENDATION ON TOWNSHIP PARTICIPATION-
       SUNNYVIEW AVENUE SANITARY SEWER

Mr. Jasinski explained how the Township participation policy was developed
when the Township required a developer to go off site. The petitioner has to pay
for 150 feet and the Township will contribute to the rest of the sewer extension.
He also pointed out that a portion of the extension would be on private road and
the funds would be recouped when residents tapped into the sewer. Eventually
the residents will tap in and the Township believes it will recoup its costs. He
noted that there are only two homes on the street and one was currently in
violation with its septic field.

Motion by Mr. Hornung, supported by Mr. Sowerby, to receive, file and concur
with the correspondence date July 16, 2003 from the Budget Ways & Means
Committee and approve the Township Participation in the amount of $31,933 for
the off-site sanitary sewer extension along Sunnyview Avenue, as recommended.
Roll Call: Ayes-Hornung, Sowerby, Steiner, Fitzgerald, Cannon, Meltzer,

Charter Township of Clinton
Regular Meeting of the Board of Trustees
July 28, 2003
Page 6
______________________________

It was noted that the Fire Department was concerned about the sprinkler system
and the fire code being met.

Mr. O’Brien pointed out that the building contained a sprinkler system and they
would follow all the requirements of the Fire Marshal.

Deputy Chief Brouwer suggested that approval be granted contingent upon the
petitioner meeting all of the necessary codes and that no temporary certificate of
occupancy be given until the petitioner had met all the requirements.

Mr. Codron pointed out that the building would require temporary alteration
permits and overhead lighting. He felt that the Building Department could handle
the permits if the Board chose to approve the request.

Mr. O’Brien assured the Board that he would comply with all the requirements
and pointed out that they would not be using homemade signs to advertise. He
assured the Board that this was a clean show and that he had never had any
problems in any other cities. He informed the Board that he had been in Warren
over the last six years either at Universal Mall or a location across from Universal
Mall. He was also in Hazel Park and had done some charity haunts.

Mr. Tomlinson asked about security.

Mr. O’Brien stated that they hired professional security and will have enough on
hand so there are no problems. Security would be outside and patrolling the
parking lot. His company was known as Urban Legends. He does the alterations
himself and everything is fire retardant. He employs an electrician when
necessary, but he did not anticipate any changes to the existing electricity in the
building.

Mr. Fitzgerald expressed reservations because the Board did not know anything
about the business or the owner.

Mr. Sowerby asked if the Petitioner could provide a list of references, names
under which he had done business and locations prior to the next meeting.

Motion by Mr. Tomlinson, supported by Mr. Fitzgerald to postpone action on the
request for the haunted attraction at 35615 Gratiot Avenue, to allow the Township

16.    REQUEST PERMIT FOR TEMPORARY TRAILER: HILLCREST
       V AUTO SALES, INC. - 36246 GRATIOT

The petitioner and his representative, Michael O’Hair of 6642 Black River, Grant
Township, were present. The building preparations were underway and the
petitioner’s financing is secured. The revised site plan has been submitted to the
Planning Department. They were asking for a renewal of the temporary trailer and
the variance to allow them to store cars on the unimproved lot.

Mr. Santia acknowledged that he had received the plans, and there were some
corrections which needed to be made. The plan must go to the Board of Appeals.
It was pointed out that the site plan was not the issue other than it had to be
completed. The biggest issue was the paving of the parking area. Vehicles should
be removed from the unimproved lot. This had been an issue with the previous
owners also. Mr Santia felt that at this point they were only requesting a
temporary trailer.

Mr. Codron stated that he was not aware of current violations. It was the
petitioner’s intention to set up a temporary trailer while the building was
renovated and submit a site plan. Mr. Codron felt that the site plan should be
approved and then request the temporary use in the future. The petitioner is
currently using the unimproved area for sales. Mr. Codron felt that if they are
allowed to continue that use there would be no incentive for the petitioner to
move forward.

Mr. O’Hair pointed out that since the temporary trailer and variance was
previously granted, they should be allowed to have it again. He stated that the
petitioner had the incentive to move forward on the project.

Mr. Tomlinson asked if they could post a performance bond.

The petitioner agreed that they were in a catch-22 situation if they do not get
approval for the trailer. If they have to reduce their inventory, it will be a hardship
on the business.

Regular Meeting of the Board of Trustees

______________________________

Mr. Codron felt that the unimproved lot should be vacant.

Mr. Sowerby suggested that the trailer could be put on the unimproved lot with
the contingency that no vehicles be stored there.

Mr. Codron felt that was a reasonable solution.

Mr. Pannecouck pointed out that the unimproved lot has been used since the
business was originally started. He stated he was only asking for what had
previously been allowed, the temporary trailer and the temporary variance.
Although it is not part of the site plan, they intended to pave the unimproved lot.

Mr. Codron felt that they should be allowed to set up the temporary trailer, to
vacant the unimproved lot and there should be an understanding when the future
development will be completed. When the petitioner has a site plan, he can come
back to the Board.

Mr. Santia agreed with Mr. Codron.

Mr. Sowerby offered an unsupported motion approving the temporary trailer at a
location that is agreeable to the petitioner and the building department and that a
$5,000 bond be posted and that no vehicles be stored on the unimproved portion
of the property until a site plan has been approved and brought to the Board.

Mr. Dolan asked that the Board clarify the circumstances under which the bond
could be drawn on.

The petitioner asked for an extension of the variance to be included in the motion.

Motion by Mr. Tomlinson, supported by Mr. Sowerby, to receive, file and concur
with the correspondence dated July 2, 2003 from Hillcrest V Auto Sales, Inc., and
require a $50,000 bond and allow the petitioner to continue to use the unimproved
lot and to permit the temporary trailer for 90 days and the Township or the
departments would be allowed to draw on the bond if the petitioner fails to
perform timely on the renovations, to timely proceed on the site plan and to timely
complete the paving of the lot. Roll Call: Ayes-Tomlinson, Sowerby, Steiner,
Hornung, Fitzgerald, Cannon, Meltzer. Nays-None. Absent-None. Motion
carried.

believed the tent would provide adequate advertising and that there were

such requests.
