Resident of the 3700 block of Emerson came before the board with the same problem he presented to the board in November; Neighbor running business out of home with hazardous materials and renting out basement as apartment. He was upset that it’s still business as usual for the neighbor and it doesn’t look like Village is doing anything about it. Mayor asked Village Manager to take resident’s phone number and get back to him.
