City Attorney, Marzano stated that this could be taken to arbitration and it could take a year to settle.

Mayor Graham stated that this was not an issue with residents, it is an issue of a business enterprise being conducted in an area zoned residential.  Dr. Broe needs to comply with the ordinance.  Mayor Graham stated that this is a health, safety and welfare issue of not only the patients but also the neighbors of this community.  Comm. Potter stated that any home nurse visitation must be licensed by the State.  Comm.
