 Old Business:

Bowman County State’s Attorney Weiss recommended that the zoning board members rescind their previous motions made for the approval of the Solar Energy System Ordinance and Wind Energy Facility Ordinance, as per North Dakota Century Code 11-33-08, for providing the proper public hearing notices.

Brackel made a motion to rescind the motion made on May 7, 2019, approving the ordinance regulating the application for, and the operation and maintenance of Solar Energy Systems.  Vail seconded the motion, and upon a vote the motion was carried unanimously.

There being no further business to discuss Brackel made a motion to adjourn the meeting at 7:45 pm, with Shear seconding the motion.

Respectively submitted,
