Trenton Building and Nuisance Board

Trenton’s Building and Nuisance board last evening gave more time to those involved with work at six residential locations in Trenton. The 60-day extensions were authorized for 409 East 19th, 510 West Crowder Road, 813 Olive, 2002 Chicago, 302 East 7th Street, and 1312 Gilmore. Representatives from each address indicated more time was needed for work that city officials expect to be done.

Advancing from a declaration of a nuisance to public hearings were three sites including 200 West 7th Street, 212 West 7th Street, and 1011 Custer Street. Advancing to findings of fact are 912 Grant and 3726 East 28th Street.  The building and nuisance board last evening removed 802 Grant Street from the list noting substantial progress has been made there. After a review, the board voted to declare a nuisance for 1802 Carnes Street.

Four of seven board members attended the meeting: Dave Mlika, Vicki Meservey, Dave Milhalovich and Harry Kately.

Police Chief Rex Ross provided a year to date nuisance summary which shows 224 incidents, most of which involved tall grass and weeds as well as trash and debris.  The report shows 136 incidents have cleared, 36 are under investigation, 52 have been prosecuted with 13 cases currently on the court docket.
