This is a request to vacate an alley platted between two rows of lots. Staff Findings are: 1) The Town of Bellvue has been platted for many years. Many of the ownerships do not coincide with the platted lot lines; 2) Vacating the alley will not leave any property without platted access; 3) Vacating the alley will not adversely affect any of the utility services in the area; 4) The County Health and Engineering Departments have reviewed the proposed vacation and amended plat and stated no objections.

Staff Recommendation is for Approval of the vacation of the alley in Block 2, Town of Bellvue.

This is a request to amend a condition of approval to allow two single family dwellings on Lot 2, Blue Spruce Village. Staff Findings include: 1) Blue Spruce Village Subdivision, a Planned Unit Development, was approved in 1984 with 23 units on 6.3 acres; 2) The Final Plat included a condition that Lot 2 could contain the existing dwelling and a "Manager's Quarters". The manager's unit is not needed and the owner of Lot 2 would like to have the condition changed to allow a second dwelling on Lot 2. The proposed amendment does not change the total number of units or the overall density of the project; 3) Conditions of approval for the original project should apply to the dwelling to be allowed by this amendment.

This Amended Plat combines three of the lots that were reduced in size when the right-of-way was acquired; 2) The County Health and Engineering Departments and all utilities serving this area have reviewed the proposed Amended Plat and stated no objections; 3) The proposed Amended Plat will get rid of two small lots which do not have adequate building sites and improve the building sites for the remaining lots.

Motion carried 2 - 0.

2. REQUEST FOR APPROVAL OF A NEW POSITION FOR NATURAL RESOURCES: Mr. Lancaster requested the Board's authorization for the Natural Resources Department to add one Senior Landfill Equipment Operator position; this action is necessitated because the current employee for this position is unable to work due to a long-term Worker's Compensation problem.

At such time as the status changes for the current employee, the new position will be eliminated. This action has been recommended by the Personnel Department.

4. REQUEST FOR APPROVAL OF WAIVER OF VACATION LEAVE CARRYOVER LIMITATIONS: A request has been received from the District Attorney's Office for Board approval of a waiver of the County Vacation Leave Policy for Tammie Tauer. Because of being short staffed in her department, Ms. Tauer has not been able to use her leave and will lose 118 hours of vacation time unless a waiver is granted to permit her to carryover her leave into 1994. If granted, however, this waiver of policy will require Ms. Tauer to use the restored leave by April 1, 1994. This waiver of policy has the recommendation of the Personnel Director, Mr. Jacobs.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Disney moved that the Board authorize a Waiver of Vacation Leave Carryover Limitations for Tammie Tauer in the District Attorney's Office, due to circumstances beyond her control. This waiver of the use-or-lose vacation leave policy for Ms. Tauer will expire April 1, 1994.

Motion carried 2 - 0.
