Board of Adjustment and Appeals - Regular Session
Meeting Date: 12/06/2018  
Subject:    Case 18-17V, Special Assessment Objection, Debra Carter, 12034 Evergreen St NW, 12-31-24-42-0034
From: Trevor White

INTRODUCTION
An unpaid penalty in the amount of $300.00 associated with code enforcement activity against the subject property is proposed to be assessed to the property.  The property owner has filed an objection to the assessment.
 
BACKGROUND & CONSIDERATIONS
The following chronology relates to actions and procedures leading to the special assessment in this matter.
 
On 08/30/2018, an Administrative Citation was issued for long grass and/or weeds exceeding eight inches in height, the maximum allowed by City Code ($300.00 penalty).  The citation established a compliance date of 09/10/2018.  The citation was posted at the property and a courtesy letter was mailed to the owner of record (same address).

On 09/10/2018, Staff had a voicemail from the property owner from 09/07/2018 asking for a callback.  Staff called the property owner back on 09/10/2018 and left a message regarding the long grass citation and advised to call back if there were further questions.  No further call back from the property owner was received.

On 09/11/2018, the property was re-inspected and the grass had not been cut.  Since compliance was not achieved, the $300.00 penalty was charged and an abatement order was issued for the City’s contracted mowing crew to mow the property.

On 09/13/2018, it was noted that the contracted mowing crew arrived on 09/12/2018 and the grass had already been cut.

Penalty charged: $300.00
 
ACTION REQUESTED
In Case 18-17V, it is requested the Board of Adjustment and Appeals recommend the City Council affirm the $300.00 special assessment in its entirety.
