Minor Land Division Letter of Intent Submitted by Diana Moyer and Ricky Zenger to
create as approximate 1 acre parcel and a 69.57 acre parcel from an existing 70.57 acre
parcel in the NW ¼ SE ¼ and the SW ¼ SE ¼ of Section 32 along Moriah Road:
Planning Committee Chairman Scott Steers reported that the committee found the
proposed division to be zoned Ag 1, located on cropped farmland, adjacent to wetlands,
within 1000’of an existing homestead, with many objections expressed by the adjoining
landowners, therefore, with no proof of income from the farm, the committee
recommends the board deny this request. Mr. Steers read the County Staff Report.
Chairman Kirchberg opened the floor for comments in favor of the division: Diana Moyer
stated that she receives all of her income from the farm. Chairman Kirchberg clarified to
Mr. Zenger that 75% of a person’s income must come from the farm if a division is to be
allowed in cropped farmland. Mr. Zenger stated that he is all for preserving farmland but
the proposed lot is all rock. Larry Moyer stated that there is no other income but from
the farm for the last 20 years.
Chairman opened the floor for those against the division: Clerk Beilke read
correspondence received by Willard and Darlene Mays, and Ann Kraft, all opposed to the
division. Luann Rake spoke against the proposed division. John Rufeldt asked that if
allowed all rules are followed, full basement, septic and well. John Kirchberg stated that
he received two phone calls against it, Jim Hayes and Bill Kirchberg.
Chairman Kirchberg asked Mr. Zenger and Mr. and Mrs. Moyer for a rebuttal: Mr. Zenger
stated that there will be a full foundation under the home and that the proposed corner
is not good to work but all rock. He continued that, regarding his home being an
eyesore, he does what he can afford to do. Larry Moyer stated that his home is a 1997,
24’x58’, in good shape and intends on keeping it that way, and Joe at Dodge County
said he could temporarily park it there. Donald Bleich asked if an overweight permit was
obtained for Moriah Road. Chairman Kirchberg closed the floor to public comment.
A motion was made by John Kirchberg to deny this land division request based on the
committee’s findings. There would be no allowance to 10.4(2) of the land use plan
because there was no proof of farm income provided, as requested. Call of Votes: John
Kraus, Jr. aye, Carole Garczynski aye, John Kirchberg aye, motion carried.
