Title
Appeal of Ray VinZant, VinZant Construction, to a Reinspection Fire Certificate of Occupancy With Deficiencies (which includes condemnation of the basement) and Summary Abatement Order at 1247 ROSS AVENUE.

Date/Time of 1st LH: Tuesday, December 12, 2017, 11:30 a.m.
Purpose of Appeal: The order states that we must comply before December 7, 2017. We are appealing this order because we need more time to comply. The main reasons we need more time to comply are:
1) The tenants are elderly family members and have strong attachment to all of their belongings. We will need more time to work with the tenants to sort through all the belongings, keep and store what is to be kept, and to dispose what is to be discarded;
2) The tenant have medical issues which limit the amount of time that we are able to work with them to comply with the order.
Date of Order(s) Under Appeal: December 4, 2017 and November 30, 2017
Inspector/Key Staff: James Thomas and Stephan Suon respectively
Legislative Hearing Staff Comments: Staff told appellant about the December 4 notice, which appellant will probably not receive it in the mail until today (December 5, 2017). no photos -rrn
Need photos for hearing from Fire Inspections and Code Enforcement. -MM
