Title

Appeal of Cory Johnson, Renova Homes, to a Vacant Building Registration Notice at 1670 SEVENTH STREET EAST.

 

Date/Time of 1st LH:  Tuesday, August 18, 2020, Teleconference hearing between 2:30 p.m. and 4:00 p.m.

Purpose of Appeal:  Renova bought the property on 7/31 with outstanding violations.  We intended to resolve them by the 8/5 deadline,but the tenants changed the locks, and I wasn't able to gain access in time.  The tall grass notice (and other notices) were mailed to the previous owner, and I didn't get them until 8/10.  I filed a change of ownership last week, so I believe your records should be current now.  I was finally able to make contact with the tenants on 8/12, and they won't hinder the repairs going forward.  I also notified them today that the other issues may be rectified immediately. 

Date of Order(s) Under Appeal:  August 7, 2020

Inspector/Key Staff:  Matt Dornfeld

Legislative Hearing Staff Comments:  Appellant included a Notice to Cut Tall Grass and Weeds, but it was not timely.  The Summary Abatement Order dated 8/6/20 was already abated according to STAMP.  VB Registration Appeal was heard by previous owner, Lolita Francisco.
