Macomb Alderman At Large Thomas Koch is not convinced the city should be paying the park district to manage Spring Lake and Spring Lake Park.

A property owner is trying to prevent one of his buildings from being demolished under Macomb's “Fix or Flatten” program for dilapidated structures.

Chad Hunziker, who is a landlord, said he is using the building at 121 South Albert Street as a warehouse to store appliances and other items. He told aldermen the building is not unsafe.

“We're trying to be proactive here and I think we try to work with the city well,” Hunziker said.

But Fourth Ward Alderman Thomas Koch said photos of the building show there are a number of loose bricks.
