Title

Appeal of Chee Xiong to a Vacant Building Registration Notice at 1151 GERANIUM AVENUE EAST.

 

Date/Time of 1st LH:  Tuesday, March 2, 2021, teleconference hearing between 2:30 p.m. and 4:00 p.m.

Purpose of Appeal:  Please remove the vacant building fee because this condemnation was caused by the tenants.  I filed the eviction back in October 2020, but the judge did not grant the eviction because of COVID-19 and the Governor ordered not to evict.  I lost my job this month because of this eviction issue.  I lost rental money to these tenants for 6 months.  I still have to fix this house to meet DSI codes.  I don't have money to pay the vacant fee.  Please help to void and forgive.  (paraphrased)

Date of Order(s) Under Appeal:  February 15, 2021

Inspector/Key Staff:  Matt Dornfeld
