Hazucha requested to make a statement. Hazucha let everyone on the Board know that he did the building on this job. Hazucha stated that he did not do the site plan but was aware of the hydrant and he has done other site plans for jobs on Westfield Road. Hazucha asked if anyone wanted to challenge him. He stated that he felt he could be fair and impartial. Hazucha asked Lyons if he objected to him sitting on this variance request. Lyons stated he did not object.

Weiland also reminded the Board of the letter previously submitted from Chief David Burnett with Midway Fire Department which states that they are equipped with various apparatus capable of handling a fire situation in this area. Discussion ensued. Reble reviewed the motion and asked for a vote. Motion carried with 3 ayes.
