      1. Class A Designation (979 Wadhams Rd) 74-25-340-0009-000— RAAB

      Christopher Ayers, Shain Park Realty representing the Raab family, Patricia and her son Keith about the property listed at 979 Wadhams Road.  There is some confusion with the classification of the property.  We have been trying to sell it for them for a little over four months now.  The difficulty with the way the property is classified it makes it impossible to get a conventional loan to put a mortgage on the house.  Since the building is also there, that’s a hindrance.  We are asking for is a re-classification for this property to be able to qualify for a mortgage.


      Orr:  What you are looking for is a Class A Designation.


      Ayers:  Yes.


      Orr motioned to approve the Class A Designation to the Raab family supported by Nelson.
