The Town of Castor has clarified its position surrounding an encroachment request heard during their August meeting.
During the meeting a resident with a newer home on 48th St. backing onto Pals Park approached council requesting for permission to place several items, including a child’s play structure and garden shed onto Town-owned property that bordered on her own.
In a motion made by Coun. Rod Zinger, the request for encroachment onto Town of Castor property was denied.
During the discussion, council discussed a step on the back of the home that crosses onto Town-owned property, saying that it had to be removed as well.
While Town of Castor administration was looking into the steps, it was found that the steps had been approved by the previous administration, and council and administration were given “ample opportunity to request a change” during the planning stage, according to CAO Christopher Robblee.
Due to the previous approval no action will be completed against the steps in question.
