Kurt and Debbie Engle addressed the council regarding the violation letter they received from the city. The letter requested the Engles to move two trees and a shed that is encroaching on city property. The Engles questioned the necessity of moving the items as the alley is now passable. They stated that the trees and shed are not as far out in the alley as the utility poles and if the city does not move the poles there should be no need to remove their trees and shed. The Engles asked to have the violation revoked. After council discussion, a motion carried to revoke the violation.
