Yahiayan: I was working with Reid before he retired, submitted my financials, and
started roofing. With the workforce we’ve been stalled. We want to rehab and get this
done. We are working with our roofing contractor and he will be handling the entire
scope of work. I should have his proposal by Thursday. We can post the Performance
Deposit. I thought we had to wait for the hearing, but we’ll do that. We’ll get everything
on the list done. I need a schedule with Craig who is licensed in St. Paul. It is hard to
get things scheduled. We have been maintaining the property.
Yannarelly: it has been pretty good lately.
Yahiayan: I did have a neighbor across the street with binoculars so he calls in.
Yannarelly: a work order for snow and ice in January, that was it.
Yahiayan: I made sure after that warning. Again it was difficult to find, this is our first
property in St. Paul. It is minute work that needs to be done. We’ve done the electrical
panel and roof.
Moermond: you’ll need a new Code Compliance Inspection. Yours was December
2020. The $5,000 was in the correspondence. I’ll need a work plan. Does Craig have a
name or company?
Yahiayan: Craig Legvold, Legvold Construction. We can schedule a new Code
