Sometimes one last bit of business you could have done without. After reviewing with the Comptroller the list of properties the City is in line to take over for taxes, I decided to check out one curious parcel on the list.
A West Main Street warehouse used for car storage had seen the two year redemption period lapse and that seemed strange. I went over to see if it was still in use and if anyone was there. I knocked and pulled open an unlocked door to see who was there...Of course the alarm started beeping.
I called 911 to let 'em know it was the 'mayor who's there'. The police came and I told them what happened. I guess the good news is I discovered an unsecured building.
As for the building, City Council will review the list of eight properties, which includes the warehouse, a tattoo parlor and six houses.
After a review by City staff, Council usually sends them to public auction, although I think the warehouse is full of cars, so I don't know what happens.
