Chairman LeMoine read aloud a variance request for Non-Compliance, Sec. 19.6 Servitude Encroachment for Shawn Aguillard at 388 River Mill Drive to encroach upon the sewer servitude to build a fence. After a brief discussion, a motion to recommend the variance to the Town Council was made by Commissioner Travasos; seconded by Commissioner Soniat.

Chairman LeMoine read aloud variance request for Non-Compliance, Sec. 19.31.1 Zoning District R-1, Side & Rear Setbacks for Randall Loup at 448 Quiet Oak Blvd. to build a pool house.
At the invitation of Chairman LeMoine, Mr. Loup explained the variance request, stating he owned the adjoining properties of 468 and 448 Quiet Oak Blvd. The variance request was to build a pool house on the property line between the two lots and 5 feet from the rear property line. Commissioners discussed drainage issues which had been brought to their attention by Mr. Caleb Kleinpeter, the property owner facing W. Main Street, to the rear of Mr. Loup’s property. Commissioner Perrault added the reason for setbacks was for fire protection and questioned if the variance would have a negative effect in that regard. Mr. Loup pointed out that the drainage servitude was located beyond his property lines and that the pool house would be built of brick, posing as a good fire barrier.
Commissioner Travasos made a motion to table the variance request until the further information can be gathered. The motion failed for lack of a second.
After further discussion, a motion to recommend the variance to the Town Council was made by Commissioner Perrault; seconded by Commissioner Soniat. A roll call vote was had with the following results:
Yeas: Soniat, Purnell, LeMoine, Perrault, Broussard
Other Business: None
