Case Feed building debris still sits at site
The city tore down the structure at 922 Rockport Road on Aug. 30 after giving the owner, North American Group of Companies, Madison, a raze-or-repair order almost a year ago.
K. Andreah Briarmoon, real estate agent for the building, the day after demolition filed an appeal to the zoning board of appeals, asking that the owner’s agent, Nadeem Syed, be given the chance to salvage the brick and other material. Syed asked that he be allowed to salvage the remaining material on-site because the brick could be damaged in transport.
By that time, almost two-thirds of the debris already had been hauled away and dumped into the landfill.
The city stopped hauling the debris and gave the owner three days to file paperwork indicating he’d found a certified contractor to salvage the debris and waiving the city’s liability.
Syed, however, did not get the notice until Sept. 10 because of a “glitch” in the paperwork at the city, said Gale Price of the city’s community development office. The notice was hand delivered Sept. 10 by a police officer to Syed’s place of employment at Five Points Grocery & Beverage in Janesville.
If Syed does not file paperwork indicating he has a certified company to salvage the debris, the city will haul the remaining material to a temporary site at the landfill, where it would remain until the zoning board of appeals hearing Tuesday, Sept. 28.
As of late Monday afternoon, no paperwork had been filed with the city, Price said.
