Fire Certificate of Occupancy
Frederick Herring appeared.
Inspector Westenhofer reported that the cost is $180 with a service charge of $135 for a total of $315.  Orders were mailed on July 15, 2010 and August 18, 2010.  Bills were mailed August 20, 2010 and September 20, 2010 to Frederick Herring, 1128 Payne Avenue.
Mr. Herring stated that he mailed the check on September 8, 2010 in the envelope provided by the City.  He doesn't have proof because the check never cleared.  He was on vacation at the time.  When he returned, he was notified that the check had not been received.  He tried calling several times but got no answer or he got a recording stating that whoever is supposed to be there is gone.  He left a message but never got a returned call and he became very frustrated.  He has paid for the assessment, so he is disputing the extra service charge.  He received only the bill that was mailed on August 20, 2010.  
Ms. Moermond recommended that the assessment be approved ($180) and the service charge ($135) be deleted. She asked staff to double check the file to see if this check can be found.  Inspector Shaff replied that she has already gone through this with Mr. Herring; they have no check.
