Here's the latest...The Mayor of Vincennes has formed a committee called the Vincennes Building Safety Commission. Supposedly to avoid legal costs associated with a demolition order on a local property, The Executive Inn. In other words, he wants to avoid property owners asserting their legal rights.
My city councilman told me that the mayor had given the impression that this committee was formed by the court involved in the ongoing case on this property. However the city attorney stated in an interview that the committee was formed by the mayors office. When I called the mayors office at first stated they couldn't tell me anything. Later, I received an e-mail directing me to call the city attorney. Still waiting to hear back from him.
My conclusion: This sounds like the mayor sidestepping processes put in place to protect property owners. With this ominous sounding committee in place will he be able to sidestep legal battles and just demolish any property he deems unworthy of being in vincennes? I agree that the old Executive Inn is an eyesore and we may be better served by a different business located at the location. However I am not willing to just let the mayor's office decide which buildings are allowed to exist.
