THE COMPLAINT ALSO INCLUDED TRASH, DEBRIS, OLD FURNITURE LYING ON THE YARD EXPOSED IN PLAIN VIEW. IN THE REAR OF THE PROPERTY. AND THEN SECTION OF THIS PROPERTY, THE PROPERTY IS IN VIOLATION OF 42.116 DUTY TO MAINTAIN PROPERTY AND ALSO 42-119 EROSION AND GARBAGE. I LEFT A NOTICE ON THE FRONT DOOR OF THE OWNER'S HOUSE AND I GAVE THE OWNER TEN DAYS TO CORRECT THE VIOLATIONS. DURING THIS INSPECTION I WAS ABLE TO SPEAK WITH THE TENANTS WHO ALSO LIVE IN THIS HOUSE ON THE RIGHT SIDE AND EXPLAINED TO THEM WHAT THEY NEEDED TO DO TO BRING THIS PROPERTY INTO COMPLIANCE.

I TOOK PHOTOS THIS MORNING. THIS IS THE NOTICE THAT I PLACED ON THE FRONT DOOR NOVEMBER 1, 2019 WITH A DUTY TO MAINTAIN THE PROPERTY. ALSO TO GET RID OF THE GARBAGE WITHIN TEN DAYS. THIS WAS THE NOTICE. THERE'S A MATTRESS AND JUNK AND DEBRIS LAYING IN THE BACK YARD. THERE'S ALSO STUFF BACK HERE THAT STILL NEEDS TO BE CUT AND CLEANED UP. THIS IS MORE TRASH BEHIND THE HOUSE HERE.

THAT MATTRESS AND OTHER JUNK IS STILL OUT THERE. THIS IS THE PROPERTY LINE THAT GOES BACK THIS WAY SO YOU CAN GET AN IDEA. NOVEMBER 12 I WENT BACK AND DID AN INSPECTION AND THE PROPERTY WAS STILL IN VIOLATION. I TOOK PHOTOS OF IT AT THAT

[00:05:04]

TIME. NOVEMBER 19TH, I MAILED OUT CERTIFIED NOTICE OF VIOLATION NOTICE OF APPEARING LETTER. DETERMINED THE OWNER'S SIGNATURE ON IT, SHOWING PROPER SERVICE.

DECEMBER 3RD, AN INSPECTION WAS DONE TO SEE IF IT WAS IN COMPLIANCE AFTER THE LETTER WAS SENT OUT. THEY HAD REMOVED SOME OF THE OVERGROWTH BUT THE PROPERTY WAS STILL IN VIOLATION. AND THEN DECEMBER 23RD, PREAGENDA INSPECTION ON THIS PROPERTY WHERE THE VIOLATIONS WERE STILL PRESENT, AS YOU'VE SEEN TODAY.

CONCLUSION WE HAVE NOTIFIED THE OWNER VIA CERTIFIED MAIL WITH THE PROPERTY VIOLATIONS, FAILURE TO MAINTAIN PROPERTY AND 42.119 RUBBISH AND GARBAGE.

WE WILL FILE A LIEN ON THE

[Item 4.2]

>> YES. NEXT CASE 4.2 REBECCA SUTHERS, THE STATE, I GUESS, ESTATE JAMES AND ERNESTINE SUTHERS CASE NUMBER 20190458 BY LICENSE CODE OF ORDINANCES, EXTERIOR STRUCTURE MAINTENANCE AND 42119 RUBBISH AND GARBAGE. CITY WOULD LIKE TO PROCEED?

>> YES. AT THIS TIME, I WOULD LIKE TO INTRODUCE ALL THE EVIDENCE IN

THIS CASE INTO PUBLIC RECORD AS FAR AS THE DOCUMENTS AND PHOTOS. >> WITHOUT OBJECTION, ACCEPTED.

>> I WANT TO SHOW YOU SOME PHOTOS OF PICTURES THAT WERE TAKEN TODAY AND THEN WE'LL GO INTO THE CASE. THIS IS NOT YOUR EVERY DAY RUN OF THE MILL CASE.

THIS IS THE HOUSE. THIS IS THE LEFT AND REAR OF THE HOUSE.

INITIALLY WHEN I FIRST CAME TO THIS HOUSE, THESE PIECES OF PLYWOOD WERE NOT EVEN ON THERE.

THEY HAVE INSTALLED THIS BUT THERE'S NO PERMIT. THIS WHOLE FRAMEWORK IS ROTTEN UNDERNEATH. THIS IS REALLY ACCIDENTAL WHAT THEY HAVE DONE TO THIS PROPERTY

[00:10:06]

SINCE DAY ONE. THIS IS THE LEFT REAR PORTION OF THE HOUSE.

THE ROOF HAS BEEN DETERMINED THAT IT'S FAILURE. HE HAS TARPS, ACTUALLY AT ONE TIME HE HAD ROPES COMING DOWN TO THE GROUND. SO I GUESS, I DON'T KNOW HOW HE GOT THEM UP THERE. THEY'RE OVER MOST OF THE ENTIRE ROOF.

YOU CAN SEE THIS FRONT ROOM OVER THE PORCH -- >> WHEN YOU SAY HE --

>> HE'S THE GENTLEMAN THAT LIVES IN THAT HOUSE. >> JAMES SUTHERS?

>> YES, HE'S THE GENTLEMAN THAT LIVES IN THE HOUSE. YOU CAN SEE THERE'S SUBSTANTIAL FAILURE HERE. YOU CAN SEE THERE'S NO BALLISTERS HERE.

THERE'S NO BALLISTERS OR HAND RAILS ON THE OTHER SIDE. NO HAND RAILS GOING UP THE STEPS. SOME ROTTED WOOD. YOU CAN SEE WHERE THAT'S ALL CHANGED. YOU CAN SEE THE ROTTEN WOOD BEHIND IT.

WOOD AND SHINGLES HERE. WINDOWS ARE MISSING HERE. AND UP HERE.

THE SPIRE HOUSE IS GREEN WITH MILDEW. THIS IS ANOTHER SIDE OF THE REAR OF THE HOUSE. THERE HAVE BEEN SOME WORK DONE OVER THE YEARS IN THIS CASE DATES BACK TO 2017. YOU CAN SEE WHERE HE HAS REPLACED SOME OF THE BOARDS OVER TIME. HE'S GOT AN APPLIANCE HERE. MORE DEBRIS ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE HOUSE. GO BACK TO THAT. IN YOUR PACKET, YOU MIGHT WANT TO TAKE A LOOK AT THAT. THERE'S A SET OF PICTURES. ENGINEERING STRUCTURE OF THE PROPERTY. THIS ENGINEERING STUDY BACK IN 2017.

IF YOU GO BACK TO THE SECOND PAGE, THIS IS THE MEAT OF THE SUMMARY.

BASICALLY, IT SAYS SUMMARY AND BASED ON VISUAL OWE THOUGH IS MR. GILLETTE WHO DID THE INSPECTION. WE FIND THE FOLLOWING TWO STORY STRUCTURE HAS SUFFERED SIGNIFICANT DAMAGE AT THE BUILDING CORNERS, STUDS, VARIOUS AREAS OF SIDING, DAMAGE THROUGHOUT THE PERIMETER, WINDOWS AND DOORS. ROOMS, TIN ROOF COVERING HAVE ALL SUFFERED ROOM DAMAGE WITH DAMAGE ON THE BODY OF THE ROOF. STRUCTURE HAS SUFFERED SIGNIFICANT DAMAGE TO THE SIDING, BACKGROUND THE PERIMETER DAMAGE.

ROOF SYSTEM BACKGROUND AND TIN ROOF COVERING HAVE ALSO SUFFERED EXTENSIVE DAMAGE WITH PHYSICAL DIPS IN THE BODY OF THE ROOF. THEN YOU DROP DOWN, BASED ON WHERE IT SAYS BASED ON ONNER IS VA VAGUS, WE FEEL IT LACKS STRUCTURAL STRENGTH TO COMPLY WITH CONSTRUCTION PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICES. SINCE REPAIRS LISTED ABOVE, THE ENTIRE STRUCTURE NEEDS TO MEET ALL CURRENT CODES, REQUIRING THE STRUCTURE BE MOSTLY DEMOLISH.

WE RECOMMEND THE STRUCTURE BE REPAIRED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE CODES IN AN EFFICIENT MANNER.

[00:15:15]

THIS WILL SAY 28, 2017. SO, ON TOP THIS ENGINEERING STUDY BACK, WE WANT TO PURSUE THIS. HE WAS HESITANT IN DOING SO BECAUSE HE KNEW IN THE END THAT WOULD PUT THE GENERAL OUT OF THE HOUSE. HE DID NOT WANT TO DO THAT.

SO AS WE SIT HERE HE DIDN'T WANT TO GO FORWARD WITH IT. WE'VE BEEN THROUGH SEVERAL BUILDING OFFICIALS SINCE THEN. ALL OF THEM HAVE LOOKED AT THE STRUCTURE AND BASICALLY FOR ONE REASON OR ANOTHER DECIDED NOT TO GO FORWARD WITH ANYTHING ELSE WITH IT.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT THEIR REASONING WAS FOR. BUT AT SOME POINT I FELT THAT WE NEEDED TO COME FORWARD AND BRING THIS BEFORE THE CODE ENFORCEMENT BOARD AND LET YOU GUYS HEAR IT AND LET YOU MAKE THE DETERMINATION ON WHAT YOU THINK THAT YOU SEE THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE. OCTOBER 22, 2019, AFTER UNSUCCESSFUL STEPS THE PROPERTY, STRUCTURE, DEPARTMENT OF CODE ENFORCEMENT OPENED THE CASE ON THIS PROPERTY, TAKEN IT NOT CHEAP THROUGH OUR NORMAL STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURES. CERTIFIED NOTICE OF VIOLATION BETTERS, SIGNATURE WAS REPORTED ON MR. JACK SUTHERS. THE LETTER GAVE THE OWNERS UNTIL NOVEMBER 23RD TO BRING THE PROPERTY IN COMPLIANCE BEFORE THE BOARD THIS EVENING.

OCTOBER 25, SECOND INSPECTION WAS CONFIRMED OF THE ORIGINAL VIOLATIONS HAVE NOT BEEN CORRECTED. TWO DAYS BEFORE CHRISTMAS, DECEMBER 23RD, A BRIEF INSPECTION WAS PERFORMED SHOWING NO CHANGES WERE MADE TO THIS PROPERTY WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THAT. WE NOTIFIED THE OWNER BY CERTIFIED MAIL THAT THIS PROPERTY IS IN VIOLATION OF 42-117 EXTERIOR STRUCTURE. THE OWNER HAS NOT CONTACTED OUR OFFICE IN REGARDS TO THIS CASE. AS YOU KNOW AN ENNEARING STUDY SHOWED THE STRUCTURE TO BE UNSAFE AND REQUIRE EXTENSIVE REPAIRS. 9 ADDITIONAL -- 90 ADDITIONAL DAYS TO BRING THIS INTO COMPLIANCE. ALL ADMINISTRATION FEES BE PAID BY THE RESPONDER AND A FINE OF $15 A DAY TO BEGIN ON APRIL 4, 2020 IF IT'S NOT IN COMPLIANCE

ALONG WITH FILING A LIEN ON THIS PROPERTY MAY 3RD, 2020. >> ANY QUESTIONS BY MEMBERS OF

THE BOARD? MISS CHAPMAN? >> I'M A LITTLE CONFUSED ABOUT A FEW THINGS. FIRST OF ALL, WE'RE FILING FOR OR LOOKING AT MAINTENANCE OF A STRUCTURE THAT WAS FOUND BASICALLY INHABITABLE TWO YEARS AGO.

I THINK I'M MORE CONCERNED, IS THIS AN ELDERLY GENTLEMAN? THAT SOMEBODY'S LIVING IN THIS

STRUCTURE. >> YES. >> ELDERLY IS A RELATIVE TERM.

>> HE'S -- >> SENIOR CITIZEN. >> YES.

HE'S NOT LIKE 80 OR 90. LATE 60S, EARLY 70S. >> OKAY.

>> YOU WORRY ABOUT THEM AS I'M SURE ANYONE LOOKING AT THIS PHOTO IS LIKE, OH MY GOSH.

>> YES. >> SO FROM MY RESEARCH, I KNEW ONE OF THESE CASES WAS GONNA COME UP BEFORE. WHEN WE'VE HAD THEM COME UP, THEY HAVE NOT BEEN INHABITED BY ANYBODY. THIS IS HOMESTEADED PROPERTY. EVEN THOUGH IT'S IN AN ESTATE, IT'S LISTED WITHOUT FURTHER RESOURCE BY CALLING THE PROPERTY APRAISER.

[00:20:01]

IT'S IN AN ESTATE AND I CANNOT FIND THE ESTATE. IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE THE PROBATE WAS FILED HERE IN NASSAU COUNTY, BUT BECAUSE IT'S HOMESTEADED, THE MOST WE CAN DO IS FILE A CODE ENFORCEMENT LIEN AND HAVE IT SIT THERE FOR 20 YEARS. YOU CAN'T FORCE THEM OUT.

YOU CAN'T ABATE THE NUISANCE. THE ON THING WE COULD ABATE AND LIEN THE PROPERTY ADDITIONALLY IS IF THE NUISANCE, FOR EXAMPLE, THERE'S A RAT PROBLEM THAT'S GOING ON TO OTHER PROPERTIES.

IF THERE'S SOME TYPE OF DEBRIS THAT'S FALLING OFF THE HOUSE THAT ENDANGERS THE PUBLIC OR A NEIGHBOR. BUT I'VEN LOOKED AT CASES THAT THEY'VE DONE IN FLORIDA.

IF PEOPLE ARE â– LIVINGLIKEHIS, THERE'S NOTHING WE CAN DO ABOUT IT, OTHER THAN FILE THE LIEN AND

HOPE THAT SOMETHING WILL HAPPEN IN THE 20 YEARS. >> YOU CAN'T FORECLOSE.

IS THE COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT? >> THEY DON'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT EITHER.

WE'VE BEEN DOWN THAT ROAD BEFORE, RIGHT? >> WHAT WE NEEDED WAS THERE TO

BE AN UPDATED STRUCTURE. >> EVEN IF IT'S AN UNSAFE STRUCTURE, IF IT'S HOMESTEADED

-- >> YOU CAN FORECLOSE.

ANYTHING. BASICALLY THE RECOMMENDATION WILL BE FOR THIS HOUSE TO BE DEMOLISHED. IT'S NOT UP TO CODE TODAY. THIS ISN'T GOING TO HAPPEN.

>> THERE ARE NO ACTIVITIES IN AND AROUND THE HOUSE THAT CAUSE OTHER CITY DEPARTMENTS TO GO

LOOKING? >> NOT THAT I'M AWARE OF. >> AND THAT IS A REASON WHERE A NUISANCE SPILLS OUT FROM A PRIVATE NUISANCE TO A PUBLIC NUISANCE.

IF THAT'S THE CASE THEN, YES, WE DO HAVE OPTIONS. >> ANY OTHER QUESTIONS?

>> HAS THE PROPERTY BEEN FOUND IN VIOLATION IN THE PAST? >> NO, SIR.

>> IT'S NEVER BEEN -- >> NOT SINCE I HAVE BEEN THERE. >> WE NEED TO MAKE A MOTION TO FIND THEM IN VIOLATION OR MAKE A MOTION TO ADOPT THE -- WHAT THE CITY RECOMMENDS.

[00:25:08]

>> ONE OF THE THINGS IN THIS, I'M JUST THROWING THIS OUT THERE IS UNDER THE STATUTE, YOU HAVE THE OPTION OF UP TO $250 A DAY, BUT THEN WE ALSO HAVE WHEN THERE IS A CODE VIOLATION OR VIOLATION THAT ARE IRREPARABLE OR IRREVERSIBLE IN NATURE, THE STATUTE TELLS US THE MAXIMUM FOR

EACH VIOLATION IS $5,000. SO I'M BRINGING THAT UP. >> IN THE LONG TERM.

>> IN THE LONG TERM. BECAUSE THERE'S SOME THINGS THAT YOU CAN'T CORRECT.

YOU TAKE A THREE DOWN, YOU CANNOT PUT IT BACK IN THAT SAME STATE IF IT'S AN OLD TREE.

THAT WOULD BE IRREVERSIBLE OR IRREPARABLE. THAT WOULD BE AN EXAMPLE.

I THINK WE DID THAT. WE DID A LONG TIME AGO, THAT BIG GIANT OAK TREE IN OUR FRONT YARD. SHE GOT A ONE TIME FINE BECAUSE YOU CAN'T JUST MAKE IT RUN.

SO I JUST WANTED TO BRING THAT UP AND IS THIS CONSIDERED TO YOU ALL TO BE IRREPARABLE OR

IRREV IRREVERSIBLE. >> $5,000 A DAY FOR EACH?

>> YES. >> MAY I ASK THE DIFFERENCE IN THE RECOMMENDATION FOR THE FIRST

CASE AND THE SECOND? >> AS FAR AS MONETARY VALUE? >> MONETARY VALUE PER CODE?

>> MORE SERIOUS VIOLATIONS HERE. >> YOU WERE GONNA READ THE RESERVATION?

>> CITY RECOMMENDS MOTION BE MADE TO FIND THE PROPERTY IN VIOLATION EXTERIOR STRUCTURE MAINTENANCE AND 42-119 RUBBISH AND GARBAGE GIVING THE RESPONDENT 90 ADDITIONAL DAYS TO GIVE THIS PROPERTY IN COMPLIANCE BY APRIL 2020. ALL ADMIN FEES TO BE MADE BY THE RESPONDENT AND APPLY THE $50 A DAY IF NOT IN COMPLIANCE ALONG WITH FILING A LIEN ON THIS

PROPERTY ON MAY 3RD 2020. >> I VOTE THE CITY ADOPT THE RECOMMENDATION.

IS THERE A SECOND? >> SECOND. >> SECOND BY MISS CHAPMAN.

ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION? NO FURTHER DISCUSSION. SECRETARY CALL THE ROLL.

>> MEMBER BYRD? >> YES. >> MEMBER --

>> SORRY. I WAS LOOKING AT THE WRONG ONE. I'M SORRY.

MEMBER BYRD. >> YES. >> MEMBER BOYD?

>> YES. >> MEMBER KRESSE? >> YES.

>> MEMBER CHAPMAN? >> YES. >> CHAIR KAUFMAN?

> YES. >> IS THERE ANY BOARD BUSINESS? I'D REMIND PEOPLE WE NEED

[Items 5 & 6]

ALTERNATES. QUESTION OR COMMENT. ARE WE GOING TO HAVE ALL NEW CASES TO THE CITY THAT MADE RECOMMENDATIONS ON THESE CASES? IS THAT GOING TO BE THE CASE FOR NOW ON? I THINK THAT'S A PRETTY GOOD WAY TO HANDLE IT.

>> I THINK SO. >> I APPRECIATE IT. WE HAD A DISCUSSION ABOUT RECOMMENDING WHEN THE LIEN WOULD BE FILED. THIS MAKES IT --

>> MAKES IT CLEARER. MUCH CLEARER. >> JUST A BETTER JOB HELPING THE

BOARD. >> I WAS GOING TO SAY THANK YOU. >> THANK YOU.

>> IT ELIMINATES SOME OF THE DEBATE ON OUR PART. IS IT 30 DAYS OR 15 DAYS?

>> WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO NOT ACCEPT IT. ENTERTAIN A MOTION TO ADJOURN?

>> MOTION TO ADJOURN. >> I'LL SECOND. >> ALL IN FAVOR.

>> AYE. THANK YOU ALL. >> THANK YOU.
