Analysis
This resolution amends a special privilege for change of ownership to Mader’s German Restaurant Incorporated, for addition of a moveable planter, and for removal of several items from the public right-of-way for the premises at 1037 North Old World Third Street.
Body
Whereas, G. Victor Mader applied for a special privilege to install and maintain electrical outlets and gas lamps and to keep and maintain a decorated, code non-compliant marquee in the public right-of-way; and

Whereas, Permission for said items to occupy the public right-of-way was granted under Common Council Resolution File Number 941066; and

Whereas, Mader’s German Restaurant Incorporated now owns the building; and

Whereas, The gas lamps and all but one of the electrical outlets has been removed from the public right-of-way; and

Whereas, Said moveable planter may only legally encroach into the public right-of-way by granting of a special privilege resolution adopted by the Common Council; and
