He began by saying he was here over a year ago, just wanted to give the Board an update status on the situation with Albert Walker and his landscaping business. He is still operating the business from his residence. The neighbors (who were also present) feel it is a zoning issue. They feel it is a residential area, and a business should not be allowed. He went on to say that on August 7th, 2001 the residents surrounding the property met to file a joint complaint with the Board against the new owner. He asked if the Board has given license since that time. Mayor replied no. He went on to say that due to Walker's cautious beginnings, the Board viewed this as an in home venture. The attorney wrote a letter to the residents, advising them it was not in the best interest of the village to pursue the matter, however the Village reserved the right to review the matter if in the future Walker was deemed to be in violation. The business is very visible. They feel the Boards inaction has made him brave. He is stock piling materials, has workers driving to and fro, and park on the premises. Trucks and trailers go in and out all the time. He advertises in phone book.
