James A. Smejkal filed an application with the Water Resources Department for changes in point of diversion, place of use and type of use of water as provided by ORS 541.510 to 540.530.

The point of diversion for this right is in the Chamberlain Ditch: SE1/4SW1/4, SECTION 22, T 1 N, R 42 E, WM;

The applicant proposes to change the type of use to: POND MAINTENANCE UNDER PERMIT R-12606.

The City of Joseph, at the request of Glenn Franz, will be considering an amendment to the City of Joseph Zoning Ordinance. The request is to add Medical Hardship Dwellings as a condition use to both R1 and R2 zones.

The first public hearing will be held Tuesday, November 4, 2003 at Joseph City Hall. Those with an interest are welcome to attend and place your testimony on record. The City of Joseph is an equal opportunity employer and provider.
