Legislative Hearing Officer Recommendation

Approve the assessment.

BethAnn Bretoi appeared.

Inspector Essling reported that 936 Westminster is a Summary Abatement Order for removing brush. The Order was mailed September 29, 2010 with a compliance date of October 11, 2010. A re-check occurred on October 15, 2010 and found to be in non-compliance. A Work Order was sent to Parks and the work was done on October 20, 2010 at a cost of $400 plus a service charge of $140 for a total of $540. There was no returned mail.

Ms. Bretoi explained that a lot of money has been put into these properties, which were in shambles before the new owners purchase them. At this particular property, contractors have done a fantastic job. There have been a lot of inspections and people have been dumping, as well.

There have been three (3) properties that her contractors have had trouble finishing up, so she is asking for a little bit of leniency. Also, some of the Notices go to the office of REI Property Management; some go to Osprey. Many times, she has only a day or two to organize a proper clean-up. Ms. Moermond stated that the obligation of the City is to send the Notices to the address on record at Ramsey County Tax Records....
