Scott Daffron: Who do we have to represent this tonight?
Patty Denovchek: Patty Denovchek.
Scott Daffron: Just reading what we have here, just for reference there are two garages that sit on Grove Drive. Is this…?
Patty Denovchek: The front garage no, it is the back garage which is ours.
Scott Daffron: The back garage is yours and this property comes out onto Grove Drive.
Patty Denovchek: Yes, where the blacktop driveway is, yes.
Scott Daffron: Okay, where the garage used to be.
Patty Denovchek: No, it is still there. The property we had prior to that we couldn’t get into the garage.
Scott Daffron: Okay, that is what I was wondering as a reference, it includes that one garage.
Patty Denovchek: Yes, the back garage. The front garage goes with the other house. Looking on Grove Street there is one here and the other one has a driveway and the garage is further back. This is what we are talking about.
Mayor Moll: That is your garage.
Patty Denovchek: Yes. The driveway closest on Grove Street, about ten feet off goes with that house.
Mayor Moll: The parcel that is identified here as Gloria Noday, that is your property?
Patty Denovchek: Yes, that is my sister.
Mayor Moll: That is what was confusing.
Patty Denovchek: Yes, there are two names listed on the property.
Charles Peck: So we are basically adding a piece of land to make this an L-shaped lot so you actually legally get to your garage.
Patty Denovchek: Yes, very nice. When we bought the property – Leslie Shafer owned both pieces. (Inaudible)
Mayor Moll: Nobody owns the one property in the corner?
Patty Denovchek: The land bank owns that.
Mayor Moll: Does the land bank have the property behind you, too?
Patty Denovchek: Yes. Anything with Shafer’s name there the land bank owns now.
Scott Daffron: Any questions? Seeing none, can we have a vote on 10-13?
Roll Call: Sally Lane, yes; Bill Sasse, absent; Jim Chubb, absent; Scott Daffron, yes; Charles Peck, yes. MOTION PASSED.
Scott Daffron: That approves your property split.
Patty Denovchek: Then what happens. Do we get this from you guys?
Mayor Moll: It has to be signed. Check back with Terri tomorrow and we will have everything signed.
Patrick Wilson: It has to be recorded. They will charge you, it is not a huge fee.
Scott Daffron: If there are no questions or comments can I have a motion to adjourn?
