1. Approved the agenda as presented.
2. Opened the floor for public comments on agenda items.
3. Held a discussion regarding the Personnel Committee’s recommendation of a $300 a month Wellness Stipend for qualified Village of Ortonville employees; such a stipend could potentially help employees to secure health insurance. The Village could not force the employees to use it on health insurance, but the intent of the Council is for employees to have it available for insurance or wellness programs for themselves and their families. Individual employees would seek out insurance and would have this money available to use. An employer group plan was not a Cost-effective option. The total spent on this stipend for all eligible employees would be $14,400.00, which is a fraction of the group plan cost.
4. Established a Wellness Stipend to be available to eligible employees, with a total not to exceed $14,400.00.

Village of Ortonville
PUBLIC NOTICE
The Village of Ortonville has proposed an amendment to Section 6.104, which covers the exemption of single family residential properties from requiring a site plan reviewed by the Planning Commission when doing construction or improvements. The amendment clarifies that every project, including single family residential properties, will receive administrative review by the Village Building Official. The amendment also extends the exemption to other types of properties for certain small scale projects that do not impact neighboring properties, constitute a change of use or require an enlargement of an existing structure or use on the property.
A public hearing was held on August 4, 2015, in conjunction with the regularly scheduled Planning Commission meeting. The proposed amendment was introduced to the Village Council by first reading on August 24, 2015. It will be read a second time and considered for adoption at the September 28, 2015, Village Council meeting held at 7:00 p.m. in the Brandon Township Offices, 395 Mill Street, Ortonville, MI 48462.
Section 6.104 is proposed to be amended to read as follows:
Section 6.104 EXEMPTION FROM SITE PLAN REVIEW BY THE PLANNING COMMISSION
A site plan shall not be required to be reviewed by the Planning Commission with respect to proposed construction or improvement of individual detached single-family dwellings units and accompanying accessory buildings, except as otherwise specifically required by this Ordinance. All projects involving single family dwellings will receive an administrative review by the Building Official for ordinance compliance.
Further, a site plan may receive an Administrative Review for certain small scale projects that do not impact neighboring properties, constitute a change of use or require an enlargement of an existing structure or use on the property. The Building Official with the concurrence of the Village Manager may approve certain small scale site plans without submission to the Planning Commission. In those cases, the Building Official shall submit a written report of every site plan submitted. This shall contain a synopsis of the relevant facts in and related to the site plan together with the proposed determination. The report shall be submitted to the Planning Commission at their next regularly scheduled meeting.
The Building Official or the applicant shall have the option to request Planning Commission consideration of site plans eligible for administrative review for the normal Planning Commission fee. All appeals of administrative site plan decisions made by the Building Official shall be made to the Planning Commission.
All residential and small scale administrative reviews will require only a Sketch Plan Review with less detailed information and at a level only necessary to verify compliance with the applicable ordinance standards.
To view a copy of the current Zoning Ordinance, you may visit the Village office, Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., or you may download a copy by visiting www.ortonvillevillage.com and selecting the ‘Forms and Permits? tab. If you have questions, you may call the Village at 248-627-4976 or stop by the office.

Dangerous Animals
90.50 Definitions
(1) ‘Dangerous Animal? shall mean any of the following:
(a) Any mammal, amphibian, fish, reptile, or fowl of a species which due to size, vicious nature or other characteristics would constitute a danger to human life or physical well-being or to animals.
(b) Any animal having a known disposition or propensity to attack, bite, or injure any person or animal without provocation. Where the official records of the Oakland County Animal Control Department, Brandon Township Clerk, Village of Ortonville Clerk, or Oakland County Sheriff’s Office indicate that an animal has bitten or attacked any person or animal, it shall be prima facie evidence that said animal is a dangerous animal.
(c) Any animal owned or kept primarily or in part for the purpose of fighting, or any animal trained or bred for fighting.
(d) Any animal which is urged by its owner or keeper to attack, or whose owner or keeper threatens to cause such animal to attack, any law enforcement officer while such officer is engaged in the performance of official duty and when such animal has the apparent ability to cause injury or harm to such officer.
(e) A dog or other animal that bites or attacks a person, or a dog that bites or attacks and causes serious injury or death to another dog or animal, while the other dog or animal is on the property or under the control of its owner.

(I) An animal that bites or attacks a person who is knowingly trespassing on the property of the animal’s owner;
(ii) An animal that bites or attacks a person who provokes or torments the animal;
(iii) An animal that is responding in a manner that an ordinary and reasonable person would conclude was designed to protect a person if that person is engaged in a lawful activity or is the subject of an assault.

(6) ‘Serious Injury? means permanent, serious disfigurement, serious impairment of health, or serious impairment of bodily function of a person.
90.51 Regulations
(1) No person shall permit a dangerous animal to go outside its kennel, pen or fence unless such animal is held securely by a leash of adequate strength to restrain the animal by designated policing authority.
(2) No person shall permit an animal that has a registered bite/attack record through the Oakland County Animal Control Department to go outside its kennel or pen unless such animal is securely muzzled by a muzzling device sufficient to prevent such animal from biting a person or other animals.
(3) All dangerous animals shall be securely confined indoors, or if outdoors, in a securely enclosed pen, kennel, or fence, which pen, kennel or fence shall be no shorter than six (6) feet in height, when not leashed as above provided.
