Lane in Woodbury. Owner stated he received the first invoice, sent in payment with
Credit Card information but DSI called to say it didn’t go through.
Her: what she said is accurate. I am appealing because I sent in the payment and they
weren’t able to process it. I did receive another letter but I forgot about it. I was just
hoping to see if the administrative fee could be waived. I’m happy to pay the Certificate
of Occupancy cost.
Moermond: the did have to process it as an assessment. There was some extra cost.
Ms. Shaff, when would Mr. Her expect his next inspection based on his classification?
Her: I think in four years. I have a class A.
Moermond: I have a renewal date of 2028. That is six years. So you won’t have any
bills for the next six years as a reward for being in good condition. They did have cost
processing this bill and I think it is fair the City recoups that. So I’ll recommend
approval of this assessment. I do appreciate this building was in great shape.

Staff report by Supervisor Lisa Martin: Summary Abatement Order on February 15 to
remove improperly stored or accumulated refuse which may include: garbage, rubbish.
Rechecked four times, but only one Excessive Consumption fee.
Anderson: there has been a lot of activity on the property. People always throw their
garbage. I wanted the date I got the orders to clean up.
Moermond: February 15 the letter was mailed.
Anderson: I went out to clean it up. It was a pile of stuff on the corner. It has 2 alleys,
one on the south side and one on the west side. The stuff was in the corner where the
alleys intersect on the SW corner. People plow their snow on my property. It covers the
garbage. There was some melting so I could take the top items on but the ice had
frozen it. I called Otis saying I picked up what I could. I asked if we could wait until the
snow melts. He said that is fine. I called him when I got it picked up and he said he’d
come out to inspect. He was on vacation and his boss inspected. In the interim
someone dumped 2 couches on the southeast corner of the lot. The boss inspects it
and says we’ve been putting too much effort in getting this guy to get stuff off the lot. I
am very diligent about it. He said I’m tired of me not doing what I needed to do and he
fined me. When I got that I looked and found more couches. I called Otis and I said I
cleaned it and you were supposed to inspect. He said he’d take care of it, he tried to,
but it couldn’t. He talked to his boss who said I just can pay the fine.
Moermond: I feel sympathetic. You got a lot of it done but not everything. The brush
was still there. What was good was the City didn’t actually do the cleanup, so you didn’t
pay that charge. I’m seeing there was 2 months to get it done. I get it was winter, but
that is quite a long time.
Anderson: March 29 is just barely thawed. People plowed snow on it all winter. I had to
