Homeowners Tim and Sue Breher requested a conditional use permit (CUP) at the Aug. 4 Clifton Town Board meeting. They reported getting nine inches of rain July 6. This caused much erosion around their house at 8423 N. 1251st St. The CUP is for a retaining wall. This wall will cost $108,000, but without it their house is in jeopardy, they said. Sue Breher added that homeowners’ insurance policies do not cover landslides or mudslides. Tim Breher had already contacted Pierce County.
