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?


Charles Peck made a motion to adjourn the meeting, seconded by Sally Lane.

Roll Call:  Scott Daffron, yes; Charles Peck, yes; Sally Lane, yes; Jim Chubb, absent; Bill Sasse, absent.  MOTION APPROVED.
