Nuisance:  "We have a property at 1809 Yorkshire that is under construction. An application was submitted for an addition, reviewed and is ready to pick up. The contractor HAS NOT picked up the permit and is doing this work without a permit. The area building inspector contacted the contractor (LeMax) on June 16th to stabilize the site and purchase the permit ? neither has taken place. A phone call to the contractor (Boris) on Friday, June 26th from the area building inspector was made and Boris assured the inspector that the site would be stabilized that day. To date the site is a nuisance and needs to be stabilized. I called the contractor?s office and left a message this morning to call me ASAP. The area building inspector will write orders for work without permit and unlawful construction practices.  The site is in need of immediate repair to stabilize soils. The neighbor?s property is being affected by the erosion, the home?s footings are being undermined and the site has no erosion control practices implemented. The property is a nuisance and I am asking you to re-establish the site to control erosion, stabilize the hillsides and incorporate BMPs as soon as possible. Please contact me if you have any questions. Stephen Ubl, City of St. Paul Building Official"
