Mr. Eibel asked if Mrs. Yockey or a
representative was present. Frances
Kiser stated she was representing her mother, Mrs. Yockey,
and had a power of attorney to act in her behalf. Mrs. Kiser said they had auctioned the

Sharon Perrine, Zoning Inspector addressed the Board and stated that she had talked to Reva Butera, in Stark County Regional Planning, who researched the property and found that the parcels had been in existence since the 1940’s.
