Submitted by Griff J Wigley on Tue, 06/21/2005 - 8:00am
I spoke to Dave Hvistendahl on Saturday while I was taking photos of the new seating area for Froggy Bottoms on the Riverwalk. (photo of you)
He said he (his West Bank Properties business) will be filing a lawsuit against the City of Northfield and the Union of Youth this week, related to the City's building currently leased to the Union of Youth for the south half of their youth center, The Key that's adjacent to Froggy Bottoms.Separate counts in the complaint: private nuisance, public nuisance, and common law trespass. He'll be seeking financial damages and injunctive relief.
Hvistendahl said he's experienced a significant increase in problems since the City Council decision allowing Froggy Bottoms to place tables and serve liquor on Riverwalk adjacent to The Key's backyard.
He expects that neighboring businesses will providing testimony supporting the complaint.
In a Feb. 11, 2005 letter to City Administrator Susan Hoyt (PDF), he stated that the hole was first made in Dec. 2004.
I obtained the photo (click to enlarge) from the Northfield Police Department and the letter from Hvistendahl.
4:00 PM update: Here's the PDF I requested of the Notice of Claim that was served on the City of Northfield by mail today according to a person in Hvistendahl's office.
