which I have brought back to Clint Zane. Based on what I’m seeing it is more than
50%. That means your Performance Deposit is automatically continued and an
additional Performance Deposit isn’t required. So that is done.
Now we have moved into a work plan for getting to the finish line. That’s where this
conversation comes in. What that work plan looks like is what we’re having a
difference of opinion about in some of the items. The way I personally work on those
things is to talk directly to the Building Official. The guy in charge of all of the building
inspectors. Walking thorugh this, the record and documents you brought in today.
Those should be present in that conversation and that would provide one review in the
dispute to give me his opinion on how to proceed.
Skliris: we’re missing the 2021 report, the 2016 report, the 2015 report, the new things
being generated and asked of Stamate Skliris to do. Raising the bar. No light at the
end of the tunnel based on my experience with the new building inspector. Generally,
you satisfy things, it is conspicuous, you check off the requirements. Now it is not
good enough. Now we’re going to make you open up your sheetrock. Now your duct
The last time we were here there was only one inspection that was articulated. Slowly it
trickled in through emails and there was more of a list. That’s our concern. Herb says
“Put the onus on them! They lost the inspections. They need to find them.” Who is
suffering from that? Me. I’m the one doing jump rope. Who pays for me to come from
Sibley County missing court and having to get coverage because they lost inspection
confirmation. Not only did they lose them, but they’re also asking me to open
sheetrock and tiled bathrooms? That can’t happen. That is something the newspapers
would love to write about. It is a shame because it can be resolved simply. The City
needs to find Ms. Dick and found the 5 copper pieces and mechanical is good to go,
you’re good to sheetrock. Now the language in here is very disparaging saying “he
assures us he didn’t add any more”. Add any more what? There’s no need to add any
more gas. But the language is very disparaging. The big elephant in the room is that
I’ve satisfied what was asked, there are new requirements of me, and part of the
reason is because they can’t find confirmation that this was inspected. Now Patton
Heating and Cooling has a bill for $23,000 of which they have received $18,000.
They’re upset because they have to pay someone to go through their warehouse and
find receipts and permits. They have five trucks. They are very busy. This is stirring a
hornet’s nest. As I good boy I satisfied what was asked of me and now “Stamate you
shall open the home, we shall come in all five of us.” Now new things pop up.
Moermond: I hear you. I see you brought documents with you. I think it is important to
have the documents you brought of record. Let’s put together the entire package. We’ll
scan in things you want and then I’m happy to hear all the comments. I want to make
sure we take the time to get those things in. I think they’re important. I’m happy to do
some comparison work. At the end of the day for my purposes this impacts what that
work plan looks like. From where we are to getting your Code Compliance certificate
issue and being done. This is all about work plan and what should actually be on it. Is
that where your thinking is?
Skliris: I am but there is one small piece that is a little bit unreasonable. Fortunately, I
have tags of what inspectors left. I also have photos. However, I lived 20 hours round
trip at the time, so for me to go through 76,000 Google cloud photos to supplement
them? The onus shouldn’t be on me. It should be on the City.
Moermond: message received. You brought it in and you are showing it. It is
emblematic of the problem you are talking about. You’ve testified those photos exist.
You feel the City is the enforcement agent, message received. Whatever you have to
document your position. I have to figure out a path forward and respond to your
