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 November 21, 2016, 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 November 21, 2016, the two-family dwelling located on the property has been found to be 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.

WHEREAS, upon failure of the Building Inspector by phone calls, site visits and conversations with the owner to secure voluntary demolition of the fire damaged structure by the recorded owner, this RAZE ORDER has been issued.

WHEREAS, it is unreasonable to repair this structure due to the extent of the fire damage; because the cost of the repairs will exceed fifty (50) percent of the assessed value of the building divided by the ratio of the assessed value to the recommended value as last published by the department of revenue for the City of Superior.

THEREFORE, YOU ARE HEREBY ORDERED TO DO THE FOLLOWING:

On or before the 5th day after service of this order, you shall secure the building in accord with Chapter 104, Section 104-152.

1. If you fail to secure the building, the City of Superior will secure the building and the cost of securing the building will 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.

On or before the 30th day after service of this order, you shall raze and remove the buildings 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 15th day of December, 2016.
