Trenton Building and Nuisance Board

Trenton’s Building and Nuisance Board Monday evening advanced five properties of concern, granted time extensions to four others, heard about two new locations and released one from the list.

Because work was completed as recommended by the city, the board agreed to release 1323 Tindall and revoke existence of a dangerous building.

After reviewing 309 East Crowder Road, the board voted to place it on the list for the existence of a dangerous building. Others added to the dangerous building list were 1011 Custer Street and 1312 Gilmore Street.

Advancing to public hearings were a garage at 607 West Crowder Road and 1618 Mable Street, moving to findings of fact was 812 Grant Street.

The board granted extensions of 60 and 90 days as repairs were reportedly in progress. Receiving 60-day extensions were 409 East 19th Street and 813 Olive Street, 90-day extensions were given to 2002 Chicago Street and 302 East 7th Street. Declared a nuisance was 112 Kavanaugh Street.

Building Inspector and Code Officer Donnie Vandevender quoted Derek Fee of Red Rock as planning to start housing demolition work in Trenton the week of April 29th. The specific locations were previously authorized by the city. Vandevender also reported Perkins and Son is beginning demolition work in the 600 block of Main Street. There’s no cost for the demo permit as it’s due to a fire.

Six members of the board attended the meeting.
