Title

Appeal of Calvin Mickel to a Vacant Building Registration Notice at 316 SUPERIOR STREET. (Public hearing continued from December 6, 2017)

 

Date/Time of 1st LH:  Tuesday, November 7, 2017, 2:30 p.m.

Purpose of Appeal:  The home is kept up and actively cared for.  I have two parties interested in purchasing.  Due to my financial situation, the fee would divert limited funds away from preparing my home for sale. 

Kind Regards, Calvin Mickel

Date of Order(s) Under Appeal:  October 18, 2017

Inspector/Key Staff:  Matt Dornfeld

Legislative Hearing Staff Comments:  Fire Inspector Justin Elvestad noted in July of 2017 that this building has been vacant for 5 years.  There are interior photos from July, but no orders, although it did get a C rating. Does his comment arise from a conversation with the property owner? -MM

WHEREAS, in the matter of the Appeal of Calvin Mickel to a Vacant Building Registration Notice at 316 SUPERIOR STREET, the Legislative Hearing Officer has reviewed the appeal and considered the testimony of City staff and the appellant; and

WHEREAS, the Legislative Hearing Officer conducted a follow-up hearing on February 13, 2018 and recommends that the City Council:  1) continue the classification of this building as a category 1 vacant building - meaning there must be compliance with the November 8, 2017 Fire Certificate of Occupancy orders prior to re-occupation and 2) not grant an additional waiver on the vacant building fee; Now, Therefore, Be It

 

RESOLVED, that the Saint Paul City Council hereby accepts and adopts the Legislative Hearing Officer's recommendation in this matter.
