Appeal of Todd Harper to a Vehicle Abatement Order at 1384 REANEY AVENUE.


Date/Time of 1st LH:  January 3, 2023 at 11:00 AM

Purpose of Appeal:  My wife (Chris Cruz Harper) has a car gifted to her by her mother, Teodora Cruz. Teodora died in May of 2022 and did not have the title. My wife got a duplicate title - however, there was a lien on the car that my wife did not know about. My wife has been on the phone for two days with Ford to get the lien taken care of (on hold). It is likely that we will not get the lien release by 12/21/22. Our goal is to donate the car as soon as possible - my wife is working with to remove/donate the car. We were not aware that this was a problem, as the car is in the alley, not a city street. We would like an extension of a month to resolve this issue and to be rid of the car.

Date of Order(s) Under Appeal:  December 13, 2022

Inspector/Key Staff:  Sean Westenhofer
