Public Request for Consideration:-Condemnation complaint

Mike Krasinski from MJK Enterprises presented several aspects of the condemnation process at 168 Mason Street that he feels were inadequate. He stated the air quality report for DNR was not filed and the well abandonment procedure was not enforced. He had concerns about the lack of a licensed plumber to cap off the sewer service and no inspection of the foundation before backfilling. He referenced pictures that indicate the open hole of the foundation was not fenced in for over a week causing a public safety hazard. When the soil and seeding took place, there was no silt fence installed.

He said he plans to file a law suit, joined by two village residents, for breech of contract. He stated the Village railroaded him out of a job and he’s retaliating for it. He accused the Village of letting and promising the job to Schuster prior to the bidding process.

He made a final statement about being notified when the land is up for auction and left the meeting.

There was a brief discussion that led to a

Motion: Anderson/Garski to take no action until the Village receives the law suit. All in favor, none opposed, motion carried.

According to previous minutes, the sidewalk at 205 W. Randolph St. was to be removed. Some verbal complaints were made regarding it not being shoveled in the winter.
