Brian France was in attendance regarding property that he claims he owns at 607 West Panhorst Street. Mr. France came in to City Hall requesting to have water set up in his name at this address, claiming that he owns this property. He had brought in a deed, however, the deed and the property identification number did not match, so he was told at City Hall office that he would have to pay a $200.00 deposit to set the water up in his name. According to Macoupin County, they still have Mr. France’s deceased grandparents as the owners of the property. After a discussion, Attorney Gilbert suggested to have a title search done on the property and determine who the actual owner is.
