Wheatland to negotiate over building razing

Wheatland town officials will meet with the owner of a property it had ordered razed after the owner filed legal action to stop the demolition.

The property is a commercial building at 4708 328th Ave. After the town issued a raze order for the building, an attorney for the property’s owner, Doloris Hudson, requested a restraining order to attempt to stop the action, building inspector Tim Popanda reported to the Town Board Monday.

The property owner would like to continue to use the building for storage, Popanda said.

The building is detrioiated on the  outside, unoccupied and considered a potential fire hazard in its present state, Popanda said. However, he recently was able to get inside and found the structure sound.

The board instructed Popanda to attempt to negotiate an agreement with the owner based on three condtions:

  • That at least part of the property be made habitable.
  • The site be cleaned up.
  • Windows and siding be repaired/replaced.

If successful, Popanda said he would anticipate setting a timeline for the required improvements to be finished.
