Making finding on the appealed substantial abatement ordered for 578 LAFOND AVENUE in Council File RLH RR 19-26. (Amend to grant an additional 180 days)

Body
AMENDED 6/24/20
WHEREAS, the City Council adopted RLH RR 19-26 on November 20, 2019 which granted 180 days to repair the structure, correct all of the deficiencies listed in the Order to Abate Nuisance Building and the Code Compliance Report at 578 Lafond Avenue; and

WHEREAS, the Legislative Hearing Officer reviewed this case on May 26, 2020 to determine if the owner and/or responsible party abated the nuisance conditions and found these conditions were not abated and the project was determined to be approximately 20% complete by the 180-day deadline established by the City Council; and
