Commissioner Wojt <br />stated that he thought it was quite clear that the Board decided to allow Ms. Stimach to reconstruct the <br />building to its original condition, and that the original condition only included a toilet and vanity. He <br />added that there was no evidence to the contrary. Commissioner Huntingford stated that was also his <br />understanding of the Board's decision. Chairman Hinton explained that it was his understanding that <br />since the building historically contained a bathroom which had been connected to the septic system, Ms. <br />Stimach would be allowed to rebuild the structure back to the original dimensions with a full bathroom. <br />He added that the size of disposal systems and septic permits are based on the number of bedrooms, not <br />the area of a structure. <br /> <br />Commissioner Wojt said that he thought the discussion was quite pointed to that issue. He continued by <br />saying if Ms. Stimach built the structure back to its original condition, which only included a half bath, <br />then it would not lead to any problems due to the particular sensitivity of this site, relative to the <br />duselless 10 ,he wafer, sand, etc. <br />HEALTH ENVIRONMENTAL <br />DEPARTMENT HEALTH <br />360/385-9400 360/385-9444 <br /> <br />DEVELOPMENTAL <br />DiSABILITIES <br />360/385-9400 <br /> <br />ALCOHOL/DRUG <br />ABUSE CENTER <br />360/385-9435 <br /> <br />FAX <br />360/385-9401 <br />
