Oak Creek postpones board of trustees meeting

Austin Colbert

— The Town of Oak Creek pushed its regular board of trustees meeting, originally scheduled for Thursday, back a week to Sept. 17. The primary reason was to allow more time for the public to learn about a major agenda item that had been scheduled for discussion.

The public hearing is for Michael and Joy Marx, who are trying to gain approval on a Land Use Change of Minor Impact, which would allow them to operate a commercial dog kennel at their residence on Bell Avenue. The Marxes have about a dozen Alaskan sled dogs, which they use for guided tours in the winter.

Other agenda items include a public hearing on an amendment to a land use code regarding mitigation and sign standards, as well as house of the month nominations for October.
