Board of Adjustment and Appeals - Regular Session
Case 18-12V Special Assessment Objection, John Arndt, 10283 Mississippi Blvd NW, 21-31-24-42-0095
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 08/09/2017, 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 08/16/2017. The citation was posted at the property and a courtesy letter was mailed to the owner of record (different address).
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, it was noted that the grass had been cut before the City’s mowing crew arrived.
The property owner references a 30% standard in his appeal. At no time has the City ever required only 70% of yards to be in compliance with City Code. If any portion of the yard is found to have grass and/or weeds taller than 8" tall, the property is considered to be in violation and would therefore be cited.
Penalty charged: $300.00
In Case 18-12V, it is requested the Board of Adjustment and Appeals recommend the City Council affirm the $300.00 special assessment in its entirety.
