City Council to file order of repair for Hennepin Avenue property

The Glencoe City Council voted to move forward on filing an order for repair for 1128 Hennepin Ave.
The building, formerly the General Store and a number of Mexican restaurants, has been vacant for more than five years and is scheduled to be forfeited to the county for back taxes in 2017.
The owners listed on the order are Fernando Cruz, address unknown, and Security Bank and Trust of Glencoe.
The order states the city finds the building to be hazardous because there is:
• No electricity or running water to the building.
• Water intrusion.
• The structure of the building and its components are failing.
• The roof is leaking, sagging, and unlikely to handle a snow load.
• Structural failure of roof joints.
• Thirty percent of the floor system is covered with moisture and has been exposed to water for a significant amount of time.
