Comments:   The are 2 houses on the same PIN.  when the first house got its certificate of code compliance on December 21, 2017, the inspector opened a new VF folder for the 2nd house.  The fee went to assessment on March 30, 2018 and the file wasn't closed until May 15, 2018 when the certificate of code compliance was issued.  Recommend deleting the assessment since this building was close to being signed off and there seemed to be some confusion on opening a new VB folder.
