Jefferson on behalf <br /> of Lindsey Cunningham regarding 2603 Coventry Lane (District 4 Commissioner Joel Keller) <br /> Background Summary: <br /> This case involved a vacant property with a missing fence gate leading to an un- secured pool enclosure and an <br /> in- ground swimming pool with green unsanitary water. These were conditions constituting an attractive public <br /> nuisance to the public health, safety and welfare. The property owner, Lindsey Cunningham, was cited on July <br /> 3, 2012 by Code Officer Edward Loeffler. The codes in violation were: 115 -3 prohibited acts, 115 -6 unsanitary <br /> swimming pool water and 108 -35 public nuisance. On July 24, 2012 the Code Enforcement Board issued an <br /> order to comply by August 7, 2012 or be fined $100.00 per day per violation. On August 31, 2012 the Code <br /> Enforcement Board imposed fine and lien for non - compliance. The violations were found in compliance on <br /> December 11, 2012. <br /> Issue: <br /> Lindsey Cunningham, the former property owner still residing at the location, is requesting the fine /lien amount <br /> of $37,500.00 be reduced to facilitate a traditional sale to the current quit -claim owners. <br /> Recommendations: <br /> On February 24, 2015 the Code Enforcement Board re- opened the case. The board recommends that the <br /> $37,500.00 fine /lien be reduced to the city's cost of $923.50. The discussion by the Board to reduce the amount <br /> was based on testimony and answers from Ms. Angelea Gillette and city staff. <br /> Attachments: <br /> Code Enforcement Board meeting minutes and photo exhibits. <br /> Financial Impact: <br /> The city would recoup the $923.50 city's expense if the Commission agrees with the Code Enforcement Board. <br />
