Boston trustees take step to clear property
During the April 9 meeting, the Boston Township Board of Trustees decided to take action and begin the process of clearing abandoned cars located on resident Bob Pruitt’s property.
This issue has been ongoing for several months. This past July, Pruitt and his lawyer, Ken Fickey, presented the trustees with a plan to clean up the property. While most of the property has been cleaned up, several vehicles and tractor-trailers remain, according to Zoning Inspector Larry Sulzer.
Over the course of the winter, no noticeable progress was made on the property, and it was assumed that this was due to inclement weather, according to Sulzer.
Sulzer, Assistant Zoning Inspector Doug Mayer and the trustees have all reported they have had very little contact with Pruitt and Fickey in several months.
Trustees agreed to start moving forward with their action to get Pruitt to clean up his property after it was reported by Sulzer once again that no progress had been made in the clearing of the property as of the April 9 board meeting.
Trustees decided the next step was for the Zoning Department to issue Pruitt a formal notice.
According to Sulzer, the notice will probably give Pruitt a certain number of days to clear his property, and if it is not completed by that time, he will have the authority to make arrangements to clear the property.
Sulzer said issuing this kind of notice isn’t something that he does very often, so he’s not sure of the procedure, but he believes trustees have given Pruitt more than enough time to take care of this himself.
