The owner of three properties in Glade Township has revealed his intentions to deal with their blighted condition.
During the Warren County Redevelopment Authority meeting Tuesday morning, members heard from Rudolph Manelick, who owns the properties at 119, 121 and 123 Front St. Laurie Hastings attended the meeting with him and explained medical issues have kept Manelick from meeting with the authority or working on the property.
According to Manelick, a neighbor has expressed interest in all three properties and called numerous times about it. He noted the properties have sewage hookups.
Authority member Terry Hawk asked what timetable the work should have. Authority Chairman John Zavinski asked if 90 days would be agreeable. Hastings replied she thought it was.
"That's quite a ways away," Hawk said. "We'd like it done before winter."
As long as the authority sees progress, Hawk said, they would rather have Manelick or the neighbor clean things up instead of having to do it themselves. With a couple dumpsters and an excavator, he predicted one half day of work could make things look much better.
In other business, County Grants Administrator Lori Dunlap questioned minutes from the previous meeting regarding the Mark Allen Truver property at 10 Railroad St., Clarendon. Dunlap said it was her understanding that Wanda Miller intended to have the high-end women's clothing store to carry used items and asked if the minutes should reflect that.
Hawk said he had the same understanding, but Miller didn't make those intentions known at the meeting. Therefore, the authority didn't change the minutes.
The authority's next meeting is at 8 a.m. Tuesday, June 19 in the Warren County Courthouse commissioners' conference room.
