Demolition orders contested

The owners of three properties on Little Ave. are appealing recent city-ordered demolitions.

Three Little Ave. property owners served with demolition orders in early December want the City of Terrace to back down.

Lloyd Wittkowski, owner of 4440 Little Ave., George Vogel, who manages his mother’s estate at 4450 Little Ave. and Wayne Kirby who owns 4520 Little Ave. have filed to appeal a Nov. 26 council decision which ordered structures on their property be torn down within 60 days, after which the city has power to demolish and bill them for it.

The owners were formally served notice by the city Dec. 4 and had 14 days to request reconsideration from council. The city’s next step will be to schedule hearings for the properties.

“We won’t have the first one until some time in January,” said the city’s director of development services David Block. After the meeting, council will have a few options on how to proceed after hearing information, he continued.

Those options include changing an order to involve different remedies or by extending the timeline, upholding an initial 60-day order from the day of notice, or taking back the order all together.
