Moermond: this last went to Council June 8th, so we’re several months down the line.
We just want a more current number and then the affidavit. You submitted good
documentation so I don’t have concerns there really. Just proof you didn’t go buy six

Moermond: we have no contact information for the owner and no one is here. I know
there was correspondence with the ward 3 office on this.
Staff report by Supervisor Joe Yannarelly: the building is a one-story, wood frame,
single-family dwelling with an attached one-stall garage on a lot of 9,148 square feet.
According to our files, it has been a vacant building since October 15, 2013. The
current property owner is Leslee G Mogol, per Amanda and Ramsey County Property
records. On June 16, 2022, an inspection of the building was conducted, a list of
deficiencies which constitute a nuisance condition was developed and photographs
were taken. An Order to Abate a Nuisance Building was posted on June 27, 2022, with
a compliance date of July 27, 2022. As of this date, the property remains in a
condition which comprises a nuisance as defined by the legislative code. Taxation has
placed an estimated market value of $168,600 on the land and $267,500 on the
building. Real estate taxes for the first half of 2022 have not been paid. Total amount
due is $4,579.30, which includes penalty and interest. The vacant building registration
fees were paid by assessment on November 1, 2021.As of September 12, 2022, a
Code Compliance Inspection has not been done. As of September 12, 2022, the
$5,000 performance deposit has not been posted. There have been two summary
abatement orders since 2013. There have been two work orders issued for
Garbage/rubbish and Boarding/securing. Code Enforcement Officers estimate the cost
to repair this structure exceeds $100,000. The estimated cost to demolish exceeds
$40,000 (interior is in a gross-unsanitary condition; hoarding situation). That can be
Moermond: I hear it has been a registered Vacant Building for 9 years. The taxes
haven’t been paid. The Code Compliance Inspection wasn’t’ applied for. No
Performance Deposit. These are all indicators of abandonment of the property.
However, we do have relatively maintenance being done. It is a mixed bag. I know it
has been a problem for the neighborhood. I’m thinking the property value may not have
been examined lately given the structure’s conditions. If it has been hoarded.
Condemned September 25, 2013. Owner occupied and lack of water service. It
probably has been hoarded since at least 2013.
Yannarelly: likely a lot of mold and a lot of vermin. It is an extremely nice part of town.
Moermond: having no one representing the property, I’m going to recommend it is
