Auburn Stalls Nuisance Declaration, Approves Fair Parade

AUBURN – The Auburn City Council stalled a move to declare two properties as nuisances after an owner spoke at Monday’s council meeting.

Carla Mason said the properties at 709 M St. and 1118 17th St. have had neglectful tenants recently, but taxes are paid and repairs are planned.

The city council thanked Mason for coming to the meeting and showing her commitment to the properties.

City commissioners said they understand that snow and ice can make clean-up slow and said they want to work with landowners to make improvements.

The city council approved $1,500 to Blue Rivers Area Agency Aging for services and public transportation.

Harry Bridgmon of the street department said city crews worked on snow removal on two occasions at the airport and three times at the cemetery.
