Racine County Circuit Court Judge John Jude has scheduled a status hearing about Edgar Tafel’s Carl and Marie Albert House for Wednesday afternoon. In September he indicated that the house should be re-roofed by October 30. While Linden Schulz, the son of the owner of the house, tells me that significant work has been done on the rear of the house and is being done on the front, he is still waiting for roofers.
Judge Jude and Edward Bruner, the village attorney, were concerned about having the roof replaced before the first snowfall. We should learn at the court hearing why the roofing work is not completed. We should also know whether or not the judge is satisfied with the work that has been done on the house, or whether he decides to issue a raze order because the roof replacement has not begun yet, as of this morning.
