  • The Tuckerman City Council voted unanimously to accept the resolution for condemnation of the property at 206 Hazel Street at their meeting Tuesday night.
    The property owners now have 30 days to clean up the property, otherwise the city will raze and remove the burnt structure that sits on the plot and place a priority lien against the property to cover the expenses.

    - Tim Slagley addressed the council on behalf of Susan Hubbard concerning property she owns at 1005 Hwy. 367 N.
    Slagley informed the council that Hubbard would like the four plots, totaling approximately one acre,  re-zoned from Residential-1 property to Commercial property in order to build a set of one bedroom efficiency apartments.
    The council decided not to take any action until they were presented with some sort of blueprint for the structure.
    "We need to know what type of construction (it is) before we make a final decision." Alderwoman Lynelle Bridgeman explained.
    When questioned by the council about other properties owned by Hubbard that they could examine, he advised that similar facilities (not owned by Hubbard) could be viewed in Newport.
    "You can look at some of Max's (Wilson)," Slagley noted.
    "I think we need to have a public meeting and see what the citizens want too."
    Slagley agreed to have a presentation ready for the next city council meeting Tuesday, July 10. A public hearing on the matter will be held at the same meeting.
