Nuisance properties discussed | News

Two properties – 301 Main Street and 214 North 3rd Street – were the topic of discussion at the Jefferson City Council meeting June 6. Building Inspector Gary Roan reported that he had met with the owners, along with Jefferson Police Officer Bill Manger at 214 North 3rd Street. Roan said the structure is unsafe with open holes in the front and rear roof. After further assessment, the owners agreed that the property needs to be demolished. City Attorney Sabrina LaFleur-Sayler will send the property owners a certified 90-day notice concerning the demolition.

301 Main Street was a topic for discussion at the Jefferson City Council meeting June 6.

At an earlier inspection May 25, it was determined that the common wall between 301 Main Street and the Post Office has separated, causing water damage at the front corner of the Post Office building. Roan said it needs to be addressed due to possible mold issues. The roof is leaking and could be the reason the sidewalk heaves. LaFleur-Sayler will prepare a complaint letter calling for the property owners to address this matter within 30 days.

SECOG Technician / Planner Jason Rosas and Sean Hegyi were present to discuss the rezoning of property from Central Business to Light Industrial on the corner of Main Street and South Third Street. Rosas said he doesn’t believe anything in the said Planning and Zoning Ordinance prohibits the rezoning. The regulation on the proposed welding shop to be built on that location would have to follow OSHA rules and regulations. Additional matters that would need to be considered would be potential fire hazards, security, fencing, limiting access for deliveries to the South 3rd Street side of the building and noise control. The council plans to proceed with a hearing for the zoning application. Adjacent landowners will also be notified.
