City Council Wednesday night instructed HIP city building commissioner to rescind a permit issued recently to Shell Oil Co. for the erection of a service station at the northeast corner of College and Main street. The action was taken, under a resolution of Alderman Geltz, seconded by Alderman Tirnmer- miere, after a warning by City Counsellor O'Neill that the rescinding order might, make tho city legally liable, and, further, that there was question as to th'e power of the Council to order a revocation. Geltz, on the other hand, con! tended there was some question as to the validity of the permit because of an ordinance of 1H27, antedating the Zoning rode, which requires an approving petition of two-thirds of adjacent property owners for authorization of a service station. Alderman Bailey, who had opposed the rezoning of the site, some time ago, for business usage, took the stand the issuance of the permit was proper because the Zoning code lists service stations as permissablfl in ? ttxe'beet- tliereis, business zones. Building Commissioner Fairfield said he had no objection to carrying out (be rescinding instruction providing it was understood the Council was to provide him legal protection. Ho cited he had been sued over a permit is- siied about (wo years ago in accord with the Zone ordinance bui which Circuit Court held invalid because of w 1!)27 ordinance requiring properly o\vner consent. His lawyer bill was S160-later paid by the city. Geliz assured, "I think ""you certainly will be given legal protection." It was shown that the 1927 ordinance has been for some time considered as superseded by the Zoning code and hence has gone unenforcetl. Order ot the Council to rescind the Shell permit came late in the meeting, long' after the Council had enacted n new ordinance, in amendment ot the Zoning code, to require special re/oning for gasoline service stations. The ordinance requires that applications for rezoning for a filling st.itiori must be accompanied by an approving petition of throe-fourths of adjoining property owners within 200 feet of the proposed location.
