The Sherburne County Board of Commissioners approved several plats and conditional use permits (CUP) Tuesday.
William and Karen Sadlowsky received CUP approval for an existing accessory building for a welding shop in Becker Twp. They have five acres in an agricultural district.
The Sadlowskys must do all the welding inside the building and they cannot store parts and materials outside. The size of trucks are restricted to pick-up trucks and no semi-trucks will be allowed.
They also cannot have any employees, no signs and no Sunday business.
John Rust received CUP approval for a commercial use within the urban expansion district in Baldwin Twp. Rust has 1.13 acres and no outside storage will be allowed.
Jonathan Schmidt requested a CUP for an accessory building for a home carpet cleaning and roto rooter business in his Haven Twp. home. He has almost 50 acres in an agricultural district.
Schmidt may not have more than two employees and is limited to five trucks or small vans.
Herman and Beverly Jedeak received a CUP for a temporary manufactured home for their son to take care of his father in Baldwin Twp. The septic system on the 18-acre property must be upgraded to accommodate both the residents and the mobile home.
James Mevissen received CUP approval for an oversized outbuilding on his almost five acre lot in Baldwin Twp.
Richard and Alice Srnsky received approval for a preliminary and final simple plat for Hillside in Livonia Twp. The 25-acre property consists of two lots, with one existing building site in a general rural district. The access to these new lots will be off 112th St. only.
Phoenix Enterprises received preliminary and final plat approval for Cumberland Gap (three lots on about seven acres) and Cumberland Hollow (four lots on about 10 acres) in Livonia Twp.

With the approval, they must show documentation that the well in the southwestern corner of the property has been capped properly. A 100-foot rear setback to all the lots on the southern end of the plat is required.
There will be no access onto Co. Rd. 42 and the south property line needs to be clarified. The fence on the right-of-way on the northeast corner must be pulled.
In other business, the commissioners approved the purchase of two radio base stations, plus labor, materials and installation from Granite Electronics for an estimated $23,000. The emergency service department requested the equipment for the UPA tower site.
They also agreed to purchase a security fence for about $19,000 to be installed by North Star Fence Inc. The fence will go around the government center and it is required by the City of Elk River.
