They would like to try to reach Pam Noonan the owner and work with her to clean up the property.  Treasurer’s office said she is not very far behind in her taxes. She only owes for 2017. The Board wants to wait to see if the attorney is able to do anything about the cleanup of the property.  Discussion will continue at the next meeting.
