owner of record, and unknown husbands, wives, widowers, widows, heirs, devisees, grantees, representatives, assigns, and all persons claiming any right, title or interest in or lien upon and of the lands described hereinafter; and generally all persons whom it may concern;
WHEREAS, the Building Inspector of the City of Superior, on September 25, 2017, acting under and by virtue of the authority vested by Wisconsin Statues and Ordinances of the City of Superior, including but not limited to Wisconsin Statues, section 66.0413 and the City of Superior Property Maintenance Code, has inspected property in which you are the fee owner or the holder of a legal or equitable interest, which is located at:
3420 North 21st Street; Parcel # 09-809-02432-00
And which is legally described as:
Lots One (1), Two (2), and Three (3), in Block Four Hundred Thirty-seven (437), in Rearrangement of Twenty First Street Blocks, in the Plat of West Superior, Seventeenth and Nineteenth Divisions, in the City of Superior, in Douglas County, Wisconsin.
WHEREAS, upon inspection on September 25, 2017, the two-stall garage located on the property has been found to be a nonconforming use. The dwelling previously on the property was so damaged by fire which occurred on November 19, 2016, as to be dangerous, unsafe, unsanitary or otherwise unfit for human habitation, occupancy, or use so that it would be unreasonable to repair the property to comply with all statutory and code requirements. A Raze Order was served on the property owner on December 20, 2016 and the dwelling was razed on January 30, 2017.
WHEREAS, an UNSAFE and UNFIT FOR HABITATION placard was attached to the garage structure on December 22, 2016 and September 25, 2017 due to reports of people sleeping in the garage, loud noise after hours, and failure to clean up the junk outside.
WHEREAS, the following city ordinances are applicable to this garage building;
Sec. 122-5. - Use of buildings.
Sec. 122-256. - Permitted uses.
Sec 122-73. - Building.
Full text of order available at City of Superior Building Inspection Office.
THEREFORE, YOU ARE HEREBY ORDERED TO DO THE FOLLOWING:
On or before the 30th day after service of this order, you shall raze and/or remove the garage building and restore the site to a dust-free and erosion-free condition.
1. If you fail or refuse to comply with this order within the time set forth in the above paragraph, the Building Inspector and others designated by the Building Inspector shall raze and remove the buildings and restore the site to a dust-free and erosion-free condition and the cost of such razing, removal and restoration shall be charged to the owner and become a lien against the real estate described above which shall be assessed and collected as a special tax.
2. If the property contains any personal property or fixtures which will unreasonably interfere with the razing of the building, on or before the 30th day after service of this order, you shall remove the personal property or fixtures. If you fail to do so, the Building Inspector or designees shall store, sell or destroy the personal property and fixtures, at their sole option, and the cost of storage, if applicable, shall be assessed and collected as a special tax against the real estate and a personal obligation of the owner.
3. Anyone affected by this Order shall within thirty (30) days after service of the Order apply to the Circuit Court of Douglas County for an order restraining the Building Inspector from razing and removing such buildings or parts thereof or shall be forever barred.
Ordered at Superior, Wisconsin, this 25th day of September 2017.
