Ivan Corel issue with his neighbor regarding fence location along property line. The neighbor is going to move their fence, but Ivan is wanting to put up his own fence. He wanted to make sure it is okay for him to put up his fence on his portion of the Alley right of way? The Council asked that Jeff be consulted to clarify where the fence can be located in regards to the alley and then let Glen know.
