    Timothy Treahy is requesting a variance from the City to allow 2 rentals on 1 property. Mr. Treahy owns multiple rentals in Bloomington. The property manager asked to be put on the agenda per Mr. Treahy’s request. The single-family bungalow with detached garage apartment was purchased in 2005 for $124,000. He was told by the seller that both the house and garage apartment had valid permits. He did not check with the city. He is saying it is a hardship to not have the double income from this property. This property is now assessed at $198,200. He has suggested that if he does not get the variance he will break the property into two separate lots. The City will not allow this single lot to be re-platted to two lots.
