"No man's land" annexed


May 2, 2019

Many years ago, when Pine Haven’s municipal property was surveyed, the measurements were off by approximately 20 feet between the Shattuck Hills Homeowners Association and the back yards of residents Larry Suchor and Randy Blakeman. This discrepancy meant that the 20 or so feet still legally belonged to the original owners.

The council, upon learning about the inconsistency, chose to annex the 20 to 28 feet of “no man’s land” into the township as was originally planned.

The governing body held a public hearing regarding this annexation last Thursday and was visited by Jim Rieniets of the Shattuck Hills, asking what repercussions this action may bring. Mayor Bill Cunningham and Councilman John Henle assured that there would be no effect, “We’re just cleaning things up.”

When the situation was first presented to the council about a year ago, Councilman John Cook further clarified, the body advised the parties involved that they were free to address the issue, but the town would not invest any money in correcting what is essentially a problem of the two homeowners.

Rieniets asked, to ensure no implications to Shattuck Hills, a written assurance of no repercussions, which will be represented in the minutes of the hearing.
