Title

Appeal of Tamer Azzazi to a Revocation of Fire Certificate of Occupancy and Order to Vacate at 1843 MINNEHAHA AVENUE EAST.

 

Date/Time of 1st LH:  Tuesday, October 19, 2021, teleconference between 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.

Purpose of Appeal:  Garage is detached and not in use due to garage condemnation requirement.  Request to review for conditional certificate of occupancy for the house until reinspection of garage repairs complete. 

Date of Order(s) Under Appeal:  September 21, 2021

Inspector/Key Staff:  Brian Ganzel

Legislative Hearing Staff Comments:  Appellant writes "Due to family health emergency...request hearing is Oct 18 or later."  Staff spoke to appellant who says that he is going to Egypt because of a death in his family and does not know what the phone reception will be while he is there; therefore, he did not want the hearing to be on October 12.  He told staff that garage is not in use.  Staff accommodated this request and told him that this hearing will not be rescheduled because it is a condemnation and is scheduled out further than normal.
