Five years ago Target 11 uncovered a city-funded project on private property without the owner’s permission. The controversial project was back in court this week.
Target 11 first exposed the dock that was built on the Ohio River in 2007. There were a lot of issues, but they seemed to quietly go away.
However, on Thursday, the city was sued over the dock.
The dock, built by the city’s Redd Up crew, was built near Western Penitentiary. Councilman Bill Peduto claimed the workers should have been cleaning up blighted areas, not building docks.
“What we need is a clarification of the role of Redd Up crew. Who do they report to?” Peduto said in 2007.
Target 11 discovered the dock was built without any of the proper permits and an ensuing investigation resulted in a warning letter to the city.
Now, five years later, the dock, which is named after the late Mayor Bob O’Connor, is at the center of another controversy.
The owner of the land said the park and the dock sit on his property, and he’s filed a lawsuit.
The owner claims the city took the property without notice or payment and he wants payback.
A representative for the mayor said they are looking into the situation.
