He said you cannot define every nuisance that will <br />come along, and only the courts can deal with private nuisances. He felt the City basically <br />has adequate ordinances. Planning Consultant John LaTourelle said in:this case there was <br />really nothing -the City could.put-its fingeron and quantify . He noted that the Health Depart-' <br />ment found no violations. Chuck Ca.in,of 1060 6th Ave. S..,.a.neighbor across the street from <br />where this problem occurred, said he thought there should -be some kind of ordinance against <br />back yard boat building. He had visited the Brautaset home and said the smell was terrible <br />from boat construction being done next -door. Mayor Harrison suggested there should be some <br />limit as to how big a project can be, or -that greater setbacks be established for such activity. <br />He commented that fiberglas has a:very.noxious odor, and -that he would hate to live next to <br />it. This was discussed further., but no action was taken. <br />PRESENTATION OF ANNUAL FINANCIAL REPORT <br />Finance Director Art Housler presented the Annual Financial Report of the City of Edmonds for <br />1979 which had been submitted to the State Auditor, together.with.a General Purpose Statement <br />which summarizes the financial. position of .the City.
