Ward 8 Alderman Rick Lipoff is among the board members in favor of letting Oak Hill resident Albert Pinkhasov, slide on the three-tiered retaining wall he built without the proper permit, Wicked Local’s Jim Morrison reports.
“We don’t like to see people break our rules,” Lipof said, “but we have got to do the right thing here and not destroy this wall. We have to keep open minds. We’ve received letters from neighbors saying they have no issue with the wall. Nobody came complaining about this wall.”
