Mayor Fuhrer asked the Council to make the meeting a voting meeting. The mayor said a meeting with CEFCU, on the well-known house on West Cooke, was cancelled by CEFCU. A CEFCU representative told the Mayor that the property might not be a CEFCU matter. It could be a mortgage held by Freddie Mac or Fannie Mac. Mayor Fuhrer first checked with the Logan County Treasurer. That office told him the real estate taxes were not paid in 06, 07, and 08. The 09 taxes were in the name of CEFCU. The second office was the Logan County Asses- sor. That office told him the property is listed with CEFCU. With all documentation showing CEFCU as the responsible party, the Mayor wants the Council to take action at the May 25 meeting. City Attorney Tom Van Hook told the Council that it would have to declare the property a hazard or danger. City Inspector Lyle Fout will inspect the property. If he finds it to be hazardous or dangerous, then the Council has to vote give notice to CEFCU to start the legal ball rolling.•, so to speak. If action is to be taken, Mayor Fuhrer did not want to wait until June. If action can be taken, he wants it to be done May 25. City Attorney Report Attorney Tom Van Hook said the sale of the Red Door was con- firmed May 3.
