REDUCTIONS CASE 621-91, 1800 OLEANDER AVENUE, CASE 19 2726, 1800 OLEANDER AVENUE AND IS

ADRIAN CURTIS. >> GOOD MORNING SPECIAL

MAGISTRATE. >> GOOD MORNING.

>> CO COMPLIANCE SUPERVISOR FOR THE RECORD. I WAS PREVIOUSLY SWORN. WOULD YOU STATE YOUR

NAME, PLEASE. >> MY NAME IS ADRIAN CURTIS HUDSON. I NEED REDUCTIONS ON BOTH CASES. THE SECOND CASE ACTUALLY, I DID NOT EVEN KNOW I WAS BEING FINED BECAUSE EACH TIME I CAME HERE THEY ALWAYS SAY I AM IN COMPLIANCE, BUT I GOT A LETTER STATING THAT I HAD A FIND THAT OCCURRED. SO NOT GOING TO ARGUE THOSE THINGS I'M JUST HERE TO ASK CAN I GET A REDUCTION BECAUSE I AM ON DISABILITY AND I GET INCOME ONLY ONCE A MONTH AND THAT INCOME BASICALLY PAYS MY BILLS AND TO HAVE A FINE OF THIS MULTITUDE, I DO NOT KNOW THAT I CAN EVER PAY IT. IF IT IS LOWERED, I THINK THAT I WOULD BE ABLE TO MAKE PAYMENTS TO GET THEM PAID.

[00:15:05]

>> OKAY. I'M GOING TO READ IT OFF FOR THE RECORD.

>> OKAY. >> THIS IS CASE NUMBER 19-ã 2726 1800 OLEANDER AVENUE, OWNED BY ADRIAN CURTIS HUDSON. THE CASE WAS INITIATED ON OCTOBER 18, 2019. THE VIOLATIONS ARE 16-46, 48 -- 47 AND 48 OUTSIDE STORAGE.

ON DECEMBER 18, 2018 A SPECIAL MAGISTRATE CROSS FOUND AGENT -- ADRIAN CURTIS -- JANUARY JANUARY 7, 2020 AND INSPECTION WAS MADE IN THE VIOLATIONS WERE NOT IN COMPLIANCE. THE FINES BEGAN. EVERY 27, 2020 AND INSPECTION WAS MADE IN THE VIOLATIONS WERE NOT IN COMPLIANCE -- NOW IN COMPLIANCE -- AND A FINE STOP.

MARCH 10, 2020 THE ORDER ASSESSING FINE OPPOSING WAS RECORDED.

MAY 4, 2020 RECEIVED A REQUEST FOR REDUCTION OR RESENTMENT OF THE FINES. MS. CURTIS IS ASKING THAT THE FINES BE WAIVED. THE TOTAL FINES ARE $2580.

SPECIAL MAGISTRATE, DO WANT ME TO READ THE SECOND ONE OR JUST LET'S GO AHEAD AND DO THE FIRST

ONE? >>SPECIAL MAGISTRATE: LET'S DO THE FIRST ONE FIRST. TO 8 -- NO. YOU WILL GO THROUGH THE LIEN REDUCTION THROUGH THE

VIOLATION. >>SPECIAL MAGISTRATE: THAT WAS

THE CRITERIA? >> YOU CAN READ IT INTO ME THE SEVERITY, HOW LONG THEY WERE OUT OF COMPLIANCE. IT LOOKS LIKE SHE CAME INTO COMPLIANCE

WITHIN. >> THE SERIOUSNESS OF THE VIOLATION WAS MINOR. ANY ACTIONS TAKEN BY THE VIOLATOR, THEY CLEANED UP THE OUTSIDE STORAGE. WERE GOING TO SKIP THE SECOND ONE. THE LENGTH OF TIME NECESSARY TO BRING THE PROPERTY INTO COMPLIANCE WAS FOUR MONTHS. THE NUMBER OF TIMES THE VIOLATOR WAS FOUND VIOLATION, THERE WERE THREE INCLUDING THIS ONE. THE NUMBER OF VIOLATIONS AND NOTICES THE VIOLATOR HAS RECEIVED IN THE PAST, 17 INCLUDING LANDSCAPING COMMERCIAL, THEY WERE COMPLIED RESULTED IN FINES AND LIENS.

ASK WHETHER AND TO WHAT EXTENT THESE ARE EXTENUATING FACTORS WAS TIMELY COMPLIANCE MEDICAL AND FINANCIAL. THE SEVENTH. SPECIAL MAGISTRATE, WE -- THE CITY IS WILLING TO GO -- ASK FOR $1100 IN 12 MONTHS TO PAY ON THE FIRST CASE HE.

>> OKAY. >>SPECIAL MAGISTRATE: MS. HUDSON, HOW DO YOU RESPOND TO THAT?

>> MY ONLY QUESTION DO THAT, IF IT IS NOT PAID, THEN IS IT LIKE -- WHAT HAPPENS IF IT IS NOT PAID WITHIN THE 12 OR 11 MONTHS THAT YOU ARE SAYING. WHAT HAPPENS? DOES IT GO AGAINST THE HOUSE OF THE HOUSE IS SOLD OR HOW DOES THAT WORK?

>> IT GOES BACK TO THE ORIGINAL AMOUNT IF YOU DON'T PAID DURING THE PERIOD OF TIME. SO THE 1100 WOULD ACTUALLY GO BACK -- TO 580? YES.

>> THAT'S STILL A BIT MUCH. ALL I CAN DO IS SAY I'LL JUST HAVE TO SEE WHAT I CAN DO. I DON'T SEE ME BEING ABLE TO BUT I HAVE TO SEE WHAT I CAN DO. I'M ON A FIXED INCOME NOW. I WAS WORKING BUT DUE TO DISABILITY, I AM ON A FIXED INCOME AND I'LL SEE WHAT I CAN DO. THAT'S ALL I CAN SAY TO THAT.

>>SPECIAL MAGISTRATE: I DO NOT WANT TO PUT YOU IN A POSITION WHERE IT'S GOING TO REVERT BACK TO THE 2580, THAT'S -- THAT'S COUNTER TO WHAT WE TRY TO DO HERE. WE TRY TO WORK WITH

PEOPLE. >> THAT'S A WHOLE ANOTHER DEAL,

>> IT IS. IT IS. I DO UNDERSTAND.

>> HOW MUCH CAN YOU AFFORD TO PAY A MONTH? LET'S JUST CONSIDER YOU HAVE TWO PROPERTIES ACCORDING TO THE RECORD, YOU HAVE 17 POUNDS VIOLATIONS. DO YOU LIVE ON THE

[00:20:21]

PROPERTY. >> A LOOK AT THIS HOUSE. I DON'T -- I MEAN, I WAS LOOKING AT IT AS YOU KNOW, IF MY CARPORT WAS CLOSED AS A GARAGE THERE COULD BE A FINE BECAUSE IT WAS CONSIDERED A STORAGE AREA SO THAT'S WHERE WE PUT OUR ACCESS, YOU KNOW, ITEMS ON THE CARPORT OR EITHER IN THE BACK SCREENED IN AREA. I NEVER KNOW WAS A PROBLEM, BUT THE MINUTE I GOT THE NOTICE MY HUSBAND PASSED AWAY. SO I WAS TRYING TO GET EVERYTHING DONE ON MY OWN. I HAVE GOOD DAYS AND I HAVE BAD DAYS AS FAR AS I HAVE TWO KNEE REPLACEMENTS. SO I WAS TRYING TO DO THEM ON MY OWN AND YES IT DID PROBABLY TAKE LONGER THAN AVERAGE TO GET THEM DONE. BUT MY SIN WAS EVERY TIME I WOULD GET A LETTER TO COME HERE, WHEN I COME HERE, SHE WOULD LOOK AT MY ADDRESS AND SAY YOU ARE IN COMPLIANCE.

SO MY THINKING WAS IT WAS TAKING CARE OF BECAUSE I'M BEING TOLD THEM IN COMPLIANCE WHEN IN ACTUALITY, I DIDN'T REALLY KNOW I WAS GETTING FINED UNTIL ONE DAY I TALKED TO HEATHER AND SHE SAID YOU ARE BEING FINED. YOU'VE BEEN GETTING FINED EVER SINCE SOME PAST DATE. UNLIKE HOW? THEY'RE TELLING ME I'M IN COMPLIANCE. I DID NOT KNOW WHAT ELSE I WAS SUPPOSED TO DO. I FIXED THE BACK OF THE HOUSE. WE FIX THE HOUSE THAT I WAS GIVEN STAFF -- I WAS GIVING EVERYTHING AWAY EVERYTHING WAS PUSHED BACK BUT APPARENTLY, THEY WANTED THE CARPORTS COMPLETELY CLEARED AND THAT'S ABSURD BECAUSE THAT'S MY STORAGE AREA. I DID NOT KNOW THAT IT WAS SUPPOSED TO JUST HAVE A CLEAR. SO WE JUST CLEARED IT, WE JUST PUT EVERYTHING OUT GAVE EVERYTHING AWAY CLEARED IT. AND ONCE IT WAS CLEARED THAT'S WHEN I KNEW ALENE WAS ALREADY THERE AND THEN THAT'S WHEN I CAME UP AND GOT THE FORMS FOR THE REDUCTION IN STAFF.

>>SPECIAL MAGISTRATE: DO WE HAVE ANY RECORD OF HER BEING SERVED WITH THE NOTICES?

>> NO. >>SPECIAL MAGISTRATE: TAKE YOUR

TIME. >> SPECIAL MAGISTRATE, I DON'T HAVE ANY -- ANYTHING IN THE FILE. BASICALLY, I'M SORRY. I APOLOGIZE. THERE WAS ONE, ACTUALLY BACK IN -- YES, 2019. THIS IS THE NOTICE FOR SPECIAL MAGISTRATE THAT WAS MAILED REGISTERED MAIL IT WAS ACCEPTED AND SIGNED. I HAVE ONE FROM NOVEMBER 18, 2019.

>>SPECIAL MAGISTRATE: FOR THIS PROPERTY?

>> I GOT A LOT OF MAIL FROM YOU GUYS AND I LOOKED AT IT I DID WHAT I CAN DO. I'M NOT GOING TO FUSS. I'M JUST HERE TO TRY TO GET A REDUCTION THAT'S ALL.

>>SPECIAL MAGISTRATE: IF IT'S OKAY WITH YOU, COUNSELOR AND STAFF, AND A RESERVE RULING ON THIS CASE UNTIL YOUR NEXT CASE. AND THEN I WILL RULE THEM INDIVIDUALLY. SO, IF YOU WANT TO -- ANYTHING ELSE ON THIS CASE?

>> YES. SPECIAL MAGISTRATE. >>SPECIAL MAGISTRATE: OKAY, ANYTHING FURTHER FROM EITHER PARTY?

>>SPECIAL MAGISTRATE: I SYMPATHIZE WITH YOU. THE MEDICAL AND FINANCIAL PROBLEMS. I CAN UNDERSTAND THAT. BUT THESE WERE FOR OUTSIDE STORAGE NOT OPERABLE VEHICLES IN ONE CASE AND JUST OUTSIDE STORAGE. THE CITY IS ASKING OR OFFERING TO REDUCE THE FINES IN EACH CASE WITH THE LIENS IN EACH CASE TO $1100 PAYABLE IN 12 MONTHS THAT'S LESS THAN $100 MONTH. THAT'S LESS THAN 100 A MONTH. SO, -- AND THAT IS IN EACH CASE. HOW DO YOU FEEL

ABOUT THAT, MS. HUDSON? >> LIKE I SAID, I WILL DO WHAT I CAN DO. BUT I DON'T KNOW IF IT WILL BE DONE. I MEAN, I HAVE ONLY A SMALL AMOUNT LEFT WHEN I DO PAY MY BILLS AND -- AND I DON'T KNOW.

[00:30:01]

>>SPECIAL MAGISTRATE: OKAY. >> I DON'T REALLY KNOW HOW TO

EVEN RESPOND TO ANY OF IT. >>SPECIAL MAGISTRATE: SHOULD SHARE YOUR FEELINGS ABOUT YOUR HARDSHIP AND EVERYTHING I UNDERSTAND.

DOES ANYBODY HAVE A -- HERE YOU GO. HOLD ON. LET ME DO SOME MATH HERE.

>> THIS VIDEO BACK IN 07, THE THING THAT WAS TOLD TO OZ BECAUSE IT SET UP UNDER THE CARPORT AND THE JUDGE WAS SAYING HE HAD PROBLEM WITH THE GUYS THE CARPORT -- IF IT WAS A GARAGE, OUR CAR WOULD BE IN IT AND HE DIDN'T GO AS HARD -- BECAUSE I THOUGHT HE HAD THROWN THAT OUT ACTUALLY. I CAN'T REMEMBER THAT FAR BACK AS TO WHAT THE OUTSIDE STORAGE WAS.

BUT I DON'T KNOW. >>SPECIAL MAGISTRATE: HOLD ON.

I'M TRYING SOMETHING HERE. >>SPECIAL MAGISTRATE: OKAY.

HERE IS WHAT I'M WILLING TO DO. IN COUNSELING, YOU MAY DEFINED WITHIN THE LAW HERE. IN THE FIRST CASE, THAT'S 19 2726, THE CITY IS ASKING THAT THE FINE BE REDUCED TO $1100. AND THAT ONE WAS FOR OUTSIDE STORAGE WHAT WAS THE ORIGINAL AMOUNT OF THE FINE IN THAT CASE, THE LIEN 2580.

>> 2580 WAS THE ORIGINAL AMOUNT.

>> ON THE 2726. >>SPECIAL MAGISTRATE: I SEE IT HERE. 2580 IN THAT CASE. I DO NOT WANT TO SET YOU UP TO FAIL, OKAY. I REALLY DON'T.

>> OKAY. >>SPECIAL MAGISTRATE: THAT'S NOT MY INTENTION. SO HERE IS WHAT I AM LOOKING AT AND I'M SORT OF NEGOTIATING HERE. SO IF I CROSS THE LINE, LET ME KNOW. BUT WHAT I AM WILLING TO DO IS REDUCE EACH LIEN TO $1100. AND I'LL GIVE YOU 18 MONTHS TO PAY THE FIRST ONE CAN WE DO THAT?

>> I BELIEVE IT'S WITHIN YOUR DISCRETION TO SET THE TIME SCHEDULE TO HAVE THE RESPONDENT PAY. SO WHAT I WANT TO DO, MS. CURTIS, MS. HUDSON, IS REDUCE IT TO THE $1100 IN EACH CASE. BUT IN EACH CASE GIVE YOU 18 MONTHS TO PAY. IF YOU CAN PAY IT SOONER, THAT'S FINE, BUT SHE WILL HAVE 18 MONTHS IN THE FIRST CASE. ONCE THAT IS PAID THEN YOU'LL HAVE AN ADDITIONAL 18 MONTHS TO PAY THE SECOND CASE. NOW, THAT CALCULATES OUT TO ABOUT $61.11 A MONTH. NOW, YOU HAVE 18 MONTHS TO PAY IT, SO LET'S -- YOU KNOW, YOU GET THAT DONE THEN YOU HAVE AN ADDITIONAL 18 MONTHS TO PAY THE

OTHER ONE. >> WHAT IS CONSIDERED THE FIRST ONE IN THE SECOND ONE? IS THE FIRST ONE THE 2580?

>>SPECIAL MAGISTRATE: YES. >> THAT WOULD BE THE FIRST ONE?

>> YES AND THE SECOND. >> IS 3500. AND THAT ONE WAS

REDUCED ORIGINALLY FROM 63,500. >> AT FIRST PRICE WAS WITH WHAT I PAID FOR THE HOUSE. I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW ABOUT THAT PRICE. I DIDN'T PAY THAT MUCH FOR THE

HOUSE. >>SPECIAL MAGISTRATE: DON'T TALK ABOUT WHAT HOUSES COST YEARS AGO 26 YEARS. I DON'T PAY THAT MUCH FOR THE HOUSE.

>> I'M IN A SIMILAR SITUATION. TRUST ME.

SO IS THAT SOMETHING YOU CAN LIVE WITH?

>> I THINK I CAN LIVE WITH THAT. I THINK MY SON WILL BE HOME BY THEN AND HE CAN HELP.

BUT HE'S NOT HERE NOW, SO. >> OKAY. I'M GIVING YOU THE 18 MONTHS. AT $61.11 ACCORDING TO MY PHONE CALCULATOR. BECAUSE I DO NOT WANT YOU BACK IN HERE.

[00:35:21]

I DON'T WANT ANYMORE FINES OR LIENS ASSESSED AGAINST YOU. I THINK YOU'RE A NICE PERSON BUT I DO NOT WANT TO BE FINDING YOU ANYMORE.

>> ON WITH THAT QUICK SO ARE YOU IN AGREEMENT WITH THAT?

>> I THINK I CAN WORK WITH THAT WHEN.

>> OKAY. THEN I WILL SAY BASED ON THE STIPULATIONS BETWEEN THE PARTIES, AND -- IN 19 ã2726, I WILL REDUCE THE LIEN TO $1100. YOU'LL HAVE 18 MONTHS TO PAY THE LIEN FROM THE DATE OF THE ORDER WHICH WILL BE SIGNED BY ME MAYBE TOMORROW. AND YOU'LL GET A COPY OF IT.

>> OKAY. >> AND, IN 06 ã2191, I WILL REDUCE THAT LIEN TO $1100. AND MADAME CLERK, THAT LIEN WILL START OR BEGIN TO BE PAYABLE 18 MONTHS SUBSEQUENT TO THE PREVIOUS LIEN.

NOW, YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT IN BOTH CASES, IF IT IS NOT PAID, THEN IT WILL RESORT BACK TO THE

ORIGINAL LIEN. >> I UNDERSTAND.

>> AND SOME TRYING TO HELP YOU OUT HERE. ANY QUESTIONS?

>> JUST A MOMENT SPECIAL MAGISTRATE?

>> SPECIAL MAGISTRATE, MY QUESTION TO STAFF WAS WHETHER OR NOT THE SECOND LIEN ON ã 2191 WOULD NEED TO GET APPROVAL FROM THE CITY COMMISSION BECAUSE WERE GOING BELOW $3000.

WE ARE THINKING NO, BUT I JUST WANT TO ADVISE THE RESPONDENT OF THE POSSIBILITY THAT IF ANYTHING TURNS OUT DIFFERENTLY, WE WILL CONTACT HER AND LET HER KNOW WHAT THAT WOULD ENTAIL.

>> NOW HERE'S -- I HAVE MY LITTLE CHEAT SHEET HERE, BUT I THINK THERE IS SOMETHING INCORRECT ON IT THAT MAY BE RIGHT OR WRONG BUT IT SAYS 3000 AND OVER.

>> OKAY. THERE WE GO SO IF IT'S LESS THAN.

>> OKAY. I JUST WANTED TO BE SURE.

>> THANK YOU, COUNSEL. >> WE HAD A LIEN THAT WAS IN

EXCESS OF $3000, SO. >>SPECIAL MAGISTRATE: ALL

KNOW. >>SPECIAL MAGISTRATE: ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU. ANYTHING FURTHER?

>> THERE'S REALLY NOTHING FURTHER, BUT IF I DECIDE TO MAKE PAYMENTS ON BOTH OF THEM AT THE SAME TIME, DO I NEED TO PUT TWO DIFFERENT NUMBERS? AM I GOING TO GET COUPON BOOKS WHERE I MAIL IT IN OR SOMETHING.

>>THE CLERK: ILL GET AN ORDER FOR EACH ONE AND THE CASE NUMBER WILL BE ON THEM AND I WOULD APPRECIATE ON THE CHECK OR WHATEVER, YOU PUT THE CASE NUMBER. YOU CAN DO THE FIRST 1/2ND ONE, HOWEVER YOU WANT TO DO IT THAT WAY JUST SO WE CAN ACCOUNT FOR BOTH OF THEM.
