Concerns/Comments from the public:

Old Business:

Street Rename was tabled until the last property owner can be notified. Clerk instructed to have notice posted with documentation on door to dwelling.

107 Clark Street-John Ingram asked Attorney Lynn Fledderman what would be the correct procedure to follow as to moving forward with having the property cleaned up. 1 st option would be to have the building deemed unsafe by an inspection. 2nd option would be to go under Ordinance of Public Nuisance. This would show the property being an unsafe hazard to children. Council asked John Ingram to send a violation letter to the property owners giving a time frame to correct violations. Lynn Fledderman informed the Council we could then take legal actions. Noel asked what kind of time frame this would involve. Lynn Fledderman informed Council the Ordinance did not state a time frame. She suggested 30 days to correct and to keep documentation of notification attempts.
