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

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 08/30/2018, 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
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.
