The Franklin County Water District hereby publishes an amendment to the Rules and Regulations as set out herein.
This notice is to advise the public that breach of this regulation will subject the violator to a penalty as described in the adopted rule. The Board of Directors of the Franklin County Water District passed this amendment on February 18, 2014.
“Repair” means the act of fixing or mending a structure that is suffering from damage, wear and tear, or defect, with the sole objective of restoring the structure to its original fully functioning and safe condition. Repair does not include the enhancement, improvement or replacement of the structure.
CONSTRUCTION ON DISTRICT PROPERTY
14.1 Except as otherwise specifically provided in this Article, a permit shall be required for the construction, improvement or replacement of any building, structure or improvement on District Property. No construction activity associated with such construction, improvement or replacement may commence until the District has approved the permit and issued an authorization to construct.
14.2 Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 14.1 above, but subject to the District’s right to require a permit in any case that it reasonably deems necessary, no permit shall be required for the following:
(a) The Repair of any existing permitted structure.
(b) Open decks or porches (including screened-in porches) added to an existing Dwelling Unit or Guest House;
(c) Fences, provided that all fences must be located so as to minimize any obstruction of the view of the Lake by other Lessees;
(d) Temporary or above-ground swimming pools;
(e) Prefabricated, personal water craft lifts that can be attached to an existing, permitted Improvement and allow the water craft to be suspended and stored over such existing Improvement;
(f) Storage buildings, not to exceed 144 square feet;
(g) Water wells; and
(h) Non-elevated Walkways, not to exceed 5 feet in width.
All of the foregoing work and Improvements must still comply in all other respects with these Rules, including setback requirements.
14.16 Piers and Boathouses
(b) Every boathouse on District Property shall have an identifying tag affixed to it [in a location designated by the District so as to maximize visibility from the water]. The District shall provide such identifying tags free of charge and the Lessee upon whose Leased Property the boathouse is located shall be responsible for installing and maintaining the identifying tag in the specified location.
