An inspection of the 1 story wood frame mixed located at the above address has revealed a building and appurtenances, and electrical, plumbing or mechanical systems that are fire damaged, vandalized, dilapidated or out of repair. Consequently, the building is dangerous, unsafe, unsanitary, unfit for human habitation and unreasonable to repair, and therefore, must be razed and removed.
It has been determined that the cost to repair the above-referenced building(s) exceeds 50 percent of the assessed value of the improvements divided by the ratio of the assessed value to the recommended value as last published by the Wisconsin Department of Revenue for the City of Milwaukee, that such repairs are presumed unreasonable, and that this building is a public nuisance.
Therefore, I, Erica Roberts, Commissioner of the City of Milwaukee, pursuant to the authority of Sec. 218-4, Milw. Code, do hereby order you to secure from entry, raze, and remove the aforementioned 1 story wood frame mixed together with all accessory structures and fixtures, and to restore the aforementioned premises to a dust-free and erosion-free condition within twenty (20) days after the service of this order upon you, pursuant to law, and should you fail or refuse to do so, the same will be razed, removed and restored to a dust-free and erosion-free condition by contract or arrangement with private persons or firms, and the costs thereof, plus additional contract administration charges, all of which constitute a lien on the real estate, may be assessed and collected as a special tax under Sec. 218-4, Milw. Code, or be collected personally.
The building(s) must be maintained vacant and secure from entry until you have complied with this order. In the event you do not maintain the building(s) secure from unauthorized entry, this department will maintain the building(s) secure and assess any cost against the real estate. Any use will be a violation of See, 200-11-5-b, Milw. Code, and any use will be subject to prosecution. Section ATCP 134.09 prohibits the advertising for rental of condemned properties. No landlord may rent or advertise for rent any premises which have been placarded and condemned for, human habitation.
Before the building(s) may be removed, raze and erosion control permits are required. Upon completion, appropriate soil erosion control measures must be installed in accordance with Sec. 290, MILW. CODE.
Permits can be obtained on-line at https://Milwaukee.gov/LMS. If you have any questions, please call the Permit Center at (414) 286-8207.
For any additional information, phone Inspector Tim Bolger at 414-286-5065 or firstname.lastname@example.org between the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. Monday through Friday.
