Lima Township Hall

At the Aug. 28 meeting of the Lima Township Planning Commission meeting, Township Supervisor Craig Maier warned that a radon test of Lima Township Hall’s basement indicated levels were three times over the legal limit.

Maier became ill earlier this month while working in the basement, which he blamed on mold. The Township Board voted to get bids from companies recommended by the Washtenaw County Health Department to clean up the mold, but Maier now says he wants to postpone getting those recommendations until more is learned about the results of other radon tests being done.

In other building news, Maier said that he was meeting with a township engineer on Aug. 29 to make determinations about the possibilities of building another structure on Township Hall property.

The planning commission discussed how to define “guest houses” and whether or not to institute rules about them in the township. Paul Montagno, a planner for consultant Carlisle Wortman, defined guest houses as an accessory structure used occasionally for temporary accommodation.

Montagno suggested rules guiding the use of guest houses including no more than one on a single lot, architectural compatibility with the home, four consecutive weeks of occupation maximum, and no kitchen allowed.

The planning commission will hold a public hearing about guest houses at its Sept. 25 meeting.
