Thank you, Commissioner Dan McDonald

Print Article

We were trying to get a permit to build an extension onto our shop to store our boat in the winter. The shop was built years ago (two owners before us) during a time when strict building code was not in place or adhered to.

We were told that because the shop was too close to the property line on the north, we might have an issue with adding an extension on the south side, even though it more than meets all the setback requirements. We had checked with our neighbor to the north and he had no problem with the setbacks on the north side.

We contacted Commissioner Dan McDonald concerning this issue. He listened as we explained the issue we were facing in getting a building permit. Dan directed us to Milton Ollerton, department head of Planning and Zoning, who quickly found a code interpretation that satisfied our needs. Thank you for competence in all departments.

We had previously met Dan at a Neighborhood Watch program, spoke with him and liked his conservative and direct approach to issues. He is a man of principle and integrity and listens to people.

We will be voting again for Dan McDonald this November.

DAVE and HEIDI ROGERS
