Board of Adjustment and Appeals - Regular Session
Meeting Date: 04/05/2018  
Subject:    Case 18-10V, Special Assessment Objection, Liangsheng Cheng, 11601 Bitterseweet St NW, 16-31-24-12-0023
From: Trevor White

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.
The following chronology relates to actions and procedures leading to the special assessment in this matter.

On 08/10/2017, an Administrative Citation was issued for long grass and/or weeds exceeding eight inches in height, the maximum allowed by City Code.  The citation established a compliance date of 08/18/2017.  The citation was posted at the property and a courtesy letter was mailed to the owner of record (different address).  This is a licensed rental property.

On 08/22/2017, 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 to the City’s mowing crew to mow the property.

On 08/25/2017, the City’s mowing crew arrived to mow the property and it was noted that there had been a few swipes mowed around the perimeter of the front yard.  There was a confrontation with the tenant and the yard was not mowed.

Regardless of whether the City abates the violation or long grass, the citation fee is charged if compliance is not met by the date of re-inspection.

Penalty charged: $300.00
In Case 18-10V, it is requested the Board of Adjustment and Appeals recommend the City Council affirm the $300.00 special assessment in its entirety.
