Ste. Genevieve Aldermen Discuss Options With Nuisance Property

Ste. Genevieve aldermen last week considered how to handle a nuisance property on and other related issues.

David Bova, the city’s community development administrator, informed the Board of Aldermen during its meeting last Thursday that abatement work had been performed on the property in question. Overgrown vegetation was cut down and hauled away.

“What about what’s left?” Mayor Paul Hassler asked.

Bova responded that he had drafted a letter concerning “junk” on the premises, but was told by city administrator Martin Toma to hold the letter “because he had heard from board members that there was some concern.”

Bova said he is still working with the property owner to get the issue resolved.

“If we go with nuisance abatement for the junk, we’ll have to have a public hearing,” Bova said, “if he doesn’t address it on his own, which is doubtful.”
