FIRST CASE. >> THE FIRST CASE IS CASE

2017-42. GRADY. >> YES, MA'AM., YOU'RE GOING TO

GO TO THE PODIUM, OKAY? >> GOOD MORNING. I WAS PARKED

AT THE CAUSEWAY PARK -- >> MA'AM. ONE SECOND.

>> OKAY. TO START, IF YOU COULD STATE YOUR NAME FOR THE RECORD.

>> CHARLENE GRADY THAT SHE WORSE MORNING?

>> YES, MA'AM. . >> WE ARE GOING TO PRESENT WORLD QUICK -- BROOKWOOD. THIS IS CASE NUMBER IS 20-1742 IT IS A PARKING APPEAL. THE CITATION WAS ISSUED AT CAUSEWAY PARK TO MS. CHARLENE GRADY ON JULY 26 OF THIS YEAR. IT WAS GOING TO BE FOR PARKING ON THE RIGHT-OF-WAY. THE CITY IS REQUESTING THAT IF THE SPECIAL MAGISTRATE FINDS A VIOLATION IS EXISTS, FAILURE TO PAY FINE WOULD RESULT IN THE CITATION BEING FORWARDED TO THE COUNTY COURT SYSTEM.

>> HAS MS. GRADY SEEN THE PHOTOS?

>> YES, MA'AM. >> OKAY.

>> WE WOULD MOVE THEM IN AS CITY'S COMPOSITE 1.

>> THEY WILL BE ADMITTED. >> IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE YOU

WANT TO SAY ABOUT THE PHOTOS? >> NO, MA'AM.

>> THEY ARE ACCURATE. THE STATE HAS SEEN THEM AND MADE THE SAME COMMENT.

>> OKAY. ANYTHING FURTHER? >> I DON'T BELIEVE SO.

>> AND MS. GRADY, NOW YOU CAN RESPOND.

>> OKAY. WHERE I WAS PARKED, WHICH I ALSO HAVE PHOTOGRAPHS SIMILAR TO THE ONES THAT SHE HAS AS WELL. THERE IS NO SIGN. IT SAYS THAT I WAS PARKED IN THE RIGHT-OF-WAY. I WAS NOT BLOCKING A SIDEWALK OR ROAD THERE WAS NOTHING IN FRONT OF MY CAR THAT INDICATED I COULD NOT BE THERE. AS WITH ALL THE PARKING AT THAT PARTICULAR AREA, I HAVE BEEN GOING THERE FOR YEARS AND I PARKED IN THAT SAME SPOT ACTUALLY BEFORE, NOT KNOWING THAT -- I KNOW IT SAYS DESIGNATED PARKING SPOTS, BUT THERE IS AN ENTIRE LOT THAT IS NOT DESIGNATED AND THERE IS DOUBLE AND TRIPLE PARKING EVERY DAY. AND SO MAYBE A WARNING WOULD HAVE BEEN A BETTER PSOLUTION OR -- IT'S ALWAYS FULL. THERE HAS BEEN PARKING ALONG THE BRIDGE AND GRASS EVERYWHERE YOU CAN THINK OF. THERE HAS BEEN PARKING THERE. SO I WANTED TO BRING IT IN FRONT OF YOU BECAUSE I DID NOT FEEL THAT IT WAS SOMETHING THAT WAS OBVIOUS THAT YOU COULD NOT

PARK THEIR. >> OKAY. ANYTHING FURTHER?

>> NO, MA'AM. >> THE PARKING SIGNS ARE THERE.

THIS IS AT THE CAUSEWAY PARK. >> WILL.

[00:05:01]

>> NOTHING FROM THE CITY? NOTHING FURTHER FROM YOU?

>> I HAVE THE PHOTOGRAPHS IF YOU WANT THEM. BUT I CAN LOOK AT THEM IF THEY ARE SIMILAR.

WHATEVER YOUR CHOICES. >> A LOOK AT THEM.

>> STAFF WILL BRING THEM UP. >> I SAW HIM THIS MORNING,

THANK YOU. >> THE PHOTOS ARE THE SAME.

SHE ADMITTED THAT IN THE GRASS IS NOT -- IS NOT A DESIGNATED PARKING SPOT.

>> NEITHER IS THE PARKING LOT, THE DOUBLE AND TRIPLE PARKED.

>> THAT IS ACTUALLY FOR BOAT TRAILER PARKING. AND IT WILL BE REASSIGNED WHEN THE BOAT

RAMP REOPENS. >> THERE'S NOT A BOATER TRAIL

PARKER'S CARS. >> ONCE THE BOAT RAMP IS REOPENED IT WILL BE ASSIGNED BOAT PARKING ONLY. THE GRASS IS GRASS AND THAT'S NOT A

PARKING SPOT. >> I'VE BEEN GOING THERE FOR MANY YEARS AND FOR MANY YEARS THAT IS THE SAME PLACES THAT WE'VE ALWAYS PARKED IS NOT JUST SINCE THE PROGRAM HAS BEEN CLOSED.

>> I GO THERE TOO, PROBABLY NOT IS OFTEN AS YOU DO BUT THE PARKING IS ALWAYS A PROBLEM OVER THERE. WE DEAL WITH IT ALL THE TIME. I THINK THERE IS A COMMITTEE THAT ADDRESSES SOME OF THE PARKING PROBLEMS THAT WE HAVE BUT NEVERTHELESS IT IS A VIOLATION. DO YOU WANT YOUR PHOTOS BACK OR JOINT AS TO KEEP THEM AS PART OF THE RECORD.

>> I CAN TAKE THEM BACK OR IT DOESN'T MATTER.

>> WE ENCOUNTER THAT PROBLEM QUITE A BIT. I SAY WE, THE CITY OF FORT PIERCE. BUT THIS IS A NO PARKING AREA. THERE'S A COMMITTEE THAT IS TRYING TO WORK ON THE PROBLEMS NOT ONLY AT THAT LOCATION, BUT OTHER LOCATIONS AS WELL ESPECIALLY SINCE DISCOVERED -- THEY LIKE THE BEACHES IN THE WATERFRONT. AND THEN LOOK FOR PLACES TO PARK UNFORTUNATELY, THERE IS A ROUTINE PATROL AND SO FOLKS GET CITED. I WILL FIND $50 FOR THE PARKING VIOLATION.

HOW LONG DO YOU NEED TO PAY THAT?

>> AS LONG AS I CAN. >> WILL 30 DAYS BE SUFFICIENT?

>> SORRY. >> WILL 30 DAYS BE SUFFICIENT? I WILL GIVE YOU 30 DAYS TO PAY. YOU HAVE 30 DAYS TO APPEAL MY DECISION. IF YOU DO NOT PAY THE TICKET WITHIN THE 30 DAY PERIOD OF TIME, QUITE POSSIBLY, IT COULD BE SENT OVER TO A COUNTY COURT FOR COLLECTION AND YOU WILL OCCUR -- INCUR ADDITIONAL FEES AND COSTS IF IT GOES THERE. OKAY. THAT'S IT. THANK YOU.

BUT NOT EVERY DAY JUST SOMETIMES. IT'S NOT EVERY DAY IT'S JUST WHEN THEY COME AND

>> HAVE YOU DISCUSSED THAT WITH YOUR SONS OR WILL YOU DISCUSS THAT WITH THEM?

>> I'M NEW HERE I WANT TO NOW. I WANT TO FIX THE PARKING AND.

>> I DON'T KNOW. THAT'S MY QUESTION BECAUSE I WANT TO.

>> MS. RAMIREZ, THERE ARE TWO OPTIONS THAT YOU HAVE. IF YOU WISH TO MAKE A PERMANENT EXPANSION OF YOUR DRIVEWAY, MAKE IT LARGER YOU ARE REQUIRED TO GET A PERMIT AND GO THROUGH THE PROCESS TO MAKE IT LARGER. YOU HAVE THE OPTION OF CREATING WHAT WE WILL DESCRIBE AS A DESIGNATED PARKING AREA YOU CAN DO THAT USING LANDSCAPING EIGHT OUT ITEMS AND IT DOESN'T ACQUIRE A PERMIT. IF YOU WERE TO USE ãMICHAEL GIVEN EXAMPLE, RAILROAD TIES ARE LIKE WOODEN STRIPS AND OUTLINE A SPOT AND FILL IT WITH GRAVEL, YOU'RE MAKING A DESIGNATED PARKING SPACE NOW DIGRESS BUT IT'S NOT A PERMANENT NATURE THAT REQUIRES A PERMIT. WE DO ALLOW YOU TO DO DESIGNATED PARKING SPACES WITH LANDSCAPING MATERIALS, PAPERS, STONES, MULCH, THOSE TYPES OF MATERIALS OR YOU'RE NOT PARKING ON THE GRASS AND THESE ARE DESIGNATED SPOT. OR YOU CAN MAKE IT PERMANENT MAKE A CONCRETE PAD FOR PARKING.

>> YES. A BIG MANGO TREE AND I HAVE SOME SPACE TO MOVE THE GRASS.

>> THE BEST OPTION IS TO MEET ON SITE BUT I NEED TO GIVE A PERMANENT THEN YOU NEED A

PERMIT. >> AND I WANT TO PUT IN LOWERS.

BECAUSE I MAKE MY HOUSE BEAUTIFUL BUT I BUY ON THE SAME ROAD AND I WILL DO NOTHING NOW.

WHEN THE LETTER COME TO MY HOUSE I'M AFRAID ABOUT IT BECAUSE WHEN I COME -- I DO EVERYTHING I WANT. BUT I NEVER HAD THIS PROBLEM I CARE.

>> YOU WANT TO CONTACT THE BUILDING DEPARTMENT TO GET THE PROCESS STARTED FOR BUILDING A

DRIVEWAY. >> OKAY.

>> SHE'S RIGHT. >> I NEED THE ADDRESS

EVERYTHING. >> I CAN TAKE IT TO THE SPOT?

>> OKAY. >> OKAY. THEN BASED ON THE EVIDENCE AND TESTIMONY PRESENTED, I FIND THAT A VIOLATION EXISTS AT 1908 WALLY UNDER BOULEVARD. SHE IS PRESENT ALONG WITH THIS SECURE IS FUENTES IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE VIOLATION. I WILL GIVE YOU 10 DAYS TO COMPLY WITH THE PARKING OR YOU WILL BE FINED $50 PER DAY. I WILL REVIEW A DETERMINATION OUTSIDE STORAGE THAT WAS A PROBLEM BUT HAS BEEN

[00:35:05]

COMPLIED WITH AS OF THIS DAY. >> I BELIEVE THE PARKING WAS COMPLIANT AT THE BEGINNING OF THIS HEARING. SO I -- WE WOULD ASK THAT YOU NOT MAKE ANY

RULING ON THAT. >> IT WAS A REVERSE.

>> IT WAS THE OPPOSITE. >>.

>> RIGHT. AND I THOUGHT THAT'S WHAT I SAID.

>> THE PARKING IS R&D. >> I'M SORRY.

>> THANK YOU. THANK YOU. I HAVE COMPLIED. THANK YOU. ALL RIGHT. YOU HAVE 30 DAYS TO APPEAL. AND AGAIN, IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS GET WITH MR. DAWSON.

>> OKAY. THANK YOU. >> I OWN NOTHING.

>> OUTSIDE STORAGE. GET WITH MR. DAWSON.

>> THANK YOU. >> I SEE WHAT I DID. I RODE IN

[0. 19-1505 Lien Reduction 711 S Ocean Drive Fond De Blanc Inc Margaret Arraiz Chad Dawson (initiator) Heather Debevec (closer)]

THE WRONG PLACE. THANK YOU. >> WE HAVE A LAND REDUCTION 19 -- 711 S. OCEAN DRIVE ON THE BLINDS, INC.

>> I'M GOING TO PRESENT. >> OKAY.

>> AND I BELIEVE THE GENTLEMAN WAS BORN BUT LET'S GET HIS NAME FOR THE RECORD BEFORE I

CONTINUE. >> STAGE NAME FOR THE RECORD?

>> (INDISCERNIBLE). >> AND WERE YOU SWORN IN EARLY

-- EARLIER? >> I WAS.

>> THIS IS CASE 19 ãONE 505-4711 SOUTH OCEAN DRIVE. REPRESENTED BY THIS GENTLEMAN.

THIS CASE WAS INITIATED JUNE 17 THIS GENTLEMAN. THIS CASE WAS INITIATED JUNE 17, 2019 AND IS BEFORE YOU FOR LEAN PRODUCTION. THE NATION OF THE VIOLATION WAS FOR -- THIS WASN'T EXTERIORIZATION -- THIS WAS AN EXTERIOR STRUCTURE ON A GARAGE. ON DECEMBER 4, 2019 HE WAS FOUND RESPONSIBLE THEY GIVE THEM 10 DAYS TO BRING THE PROPERTY INTO COMPLIANCE. ON JANUARY 30 ADVERB PROBLEMS GIVING A -- ALL MY GOD I HATE THIS JOB.

>> ON JUNE 25 THE LIEN WAS RECORDED. ON AUGUST 19 AN INSPECTION WAS MADE IN THE PROPERTY WAS FOUND TO BE IN COMPLIANCE IN THE FINE STOPPED AND WE RECEIVED A REQUEST FOR REDUCTION. MR. LECLERC AND HIS REQUEST HE IS REQUESTING ALL THE FINES TO BE WAIVED WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE RECORDING FEES.

JUST TO REVIEW THE SEVEN CRITERIA AS REQUIRED THE GRAVITY MODERATE. THEY DID NEED A PERMIT TO REPAIR THE EXTERIOR OF THE STRUCTURE. ANY ACTIONS TAKEN TO CORRECT THE VIOLATIONS -- THE OWNER DID GET THE NECESSARY PERMITS. THEY CORRECTED THE VIOLATIONS.

THE LENGTH OF TIME, IT TOOK 13 DAYS IN TWO MONTHS TO CORRECT. THE NUMBER OF TIME -- THE NUMBER OF VIOLATION NOTICES WAS ZERO.

EXTENUATING FACTORS -- COVID-19 WAS NUMBER ONE. UNAWARE OF THE CODE VIOLATIONS BECAUSE THERE WAS SOME CONFUSION AS TO A BUILDING CODE VIOLATION AND HE APPEARED BEFORE YOU 40 BUILDING CODE VIOLATION. HE DID NOT UNDERSTAND THAT THERE WERE TWO SEPARATE CASES, TO SEPARATE VIOLATIONS THAT NEEDED TO BE ADDRESSED. HE'D OBTAINED A PERMIT FOR THE BUILDING VIOLATIONS NOT UNDERSTANDING THAT THIS WAS A SEPARATE CODE VIOLATION.

>> OKAY. >> THERE IS NO OTHER ITEMS TO BE ADDRESSED OTHER THAN THE SEVEN CRITERIA.

>> I ALSO WOULD LIKE TO ADDRESS THE ADMINISTRATION COSTS. THE FIRST THING IN YELLOW, YOU CAN SEE THERE'S $250 THAT MUST BE ASSESSED IF THIS WAS TO GO BEFORE THE COMMISSION FOR A LIEN REDUCTION REQUEST BEFORE THEM FOR ANYTHING LESS THAN $3000. THE TOTAL ADMINISTRATION CHARGES ARE $1667. 700 OF THAT IS FOR THE MONTHS OPEN WILL BE CONSIDERED THE SOFT COSTS. I BELIEVE THAT NUMBER SHOULD BE ADJUSTED DUE TO COVID BY APPROXIMATELY SIX MONTHS. WHICH WOULD BE ROUGHLY $300.

SO, TAKING IT ALL INTO CONSIDERATION I WOULD SUGGEST REDUCING THE ADMINISTRATION COSTS TO $1200. AND THAT'S GOING TO BE STATUS RECOMMENDATION. -- THAT IS

[00:40:07]

GOING TO BE THE STAFF'S RECOMMENDATION.

>> A MR. LECLERC? HOW DO YOU RESPOND?

>> GOOD MORNING. >> GOOD MORNING.

>> I DID APPEAR BEFORE YOU IN THE YEAR OF 2020. I STATED. AT THAT TIME, -- PRIOR TO THAT TIME I HAD CONTACTED MR. CHAD DAWSON. JANUARY 3 AS SHE STATED. MR. DAWSON CONTACTED MR. COSTS ET AL. MANAGED A PERMIT. WHEN I APPEARED BEFORE YOU IN FEBRUARY, YOU HAD STOPPED ALL FINES ON THE SUBJECT PROPERTY AND ALLOWED ME TO MAKE THE TRIP TO GET THE PERMITS NECESSARY. I DID FORWARD SOME DOCUMENTS OVER TO THE BUILDING DEPARTMENT AND THE CODE VIOLATION DEPARTMENT STATING THE TIMELINE OF EVENTS IN TRYING TO FIND CONTRACTORS TO DO THIS WORK. I TALKED TO 45 DIFFERENT CONTRACTORS. SOME HAVE TAKEN MONEY AND SOME OF PERFORMED JOBS WITHOUT PERMITS.

>> I COULD NOT PERFORM THE WORK AND I WAS AT THE EXPRESS -- ACTUALLY BEING HELD BY THESE CONTRACTORS -- WHAT I'M ASKING FOR YOU CAN RUN THE -- AND I WANT TO REDUCTION OF THE LIENS AND FINES. THE PROPERTY HAS BEEN MAINTAINED -- TO PREFACE MY COMMENTS ABOUT THE SIN 2019 IT WAS DILAPIDATED. THIS IS NOT A FAULT OF MY OWN. I BOUGHT IT FROM A DYING WIDOW AND THE PROPERTY WAS ALREADY IN DISREPAIR. I'VE BEEN TRYING TO MAKE THE REPAIRS EVER SINCE THAT TIME. I AM ASKING TO RESCIND THE LIEN OF COURSE AND I'M WILLING TO PAY THE $250 IN ADMINISTRATIVE COSTS. AGAIN, DUE TO COVID WAS HARD TO FIND PEOPLE TO DO THIS WORK.

I DO HAVE A SEPARATE MATTER THAT I WILL BE COMING BACK FOR FROM THE BUILDING DEPARTMENT FOR THE PERMIT VIOLATIONS. WHICH I WILL APPEAR BEFORE YOU AGAIN. ANOTHER HEARING.

BUT AGAIN, I AM HERE TODAY TO ASSET THAT LIEN BE RESCINDED AND ALSO, I'M WILLING TO PAY THE $250 IN THE ADMINISTRATIVE FEES.

BUT I DO THINK -- MORE THAN $250 IS EXCESSIVE. I DID APPEAR IN FEBRUARY WITH THE UNDERSTANDING THAT THE FEES WOULD BE STOPPED ON THE PROPERTY AND AS -- AS WAS STATED, THOUGHT I WAS PAYING TO ABATE THE VIOLATIONS.

WHEN I CALL THE CODE ENFORCEMENT THEY SAID SOMEONE COULD HAVE BEEN HERE -- MR. DAWSON COULD HAVE BEEN HERE IF I ASKED. BUT I THOUGHT -- OR I KNEW, RATHER, THAT MR. DAWSON MR. COSTS HAVE BEEN COMMUNICATING IN BOTH OF THESE VIOLATIONS. I THOUGHT I WAS TAKING CARE OF THEM BOTH IN FEBRUARY.

>> OKAY. IN HER THE REPRESENTATIONS MADE BY MR. REYES. SHE IS WILLING TO

REDUCE THIS DOWN TO $1200. >> I THINK IT'S EXCESSIVE.

>> OKAY. >> I THINK ANYTHING BEYOND ADMINISTRATIVE COSTS ARE EXCESSIVE. I'M WILLING TO PAY THAT.

>> OKAY. >> AND AS I STATED, I WAS HERE IN FEBRUARY. THIS WOULD HAVE NOT GOTTEN TO THIS POINT. I THOUGHT MR. DAWSON AND MR. COSTS HAD COMMUNICATED. I WAS APPEARING BEFORE THEM PRIOR TO THE LIEN -- PRIOR TO THE LIEN EVEN BEING GOING ON INTO THE PROPERTY WHERE YOU HAD STOPPED THE CHARGES, THE DAILY CHARGES.

IT WOULD NOT HAVE EVEN GOTTEN TO THAT POINT. I CALLED THE CODE ENFORCEMENT AND I WAS TOLD THAT IF I WANTED CODE ENFORCEMENT TO BE HERE THAT I WOULD IMAGINE STATE THAT.

AGAIN, ESTHER CASA MR. DAWSON WERE IN COMMUNICATION. WHEN I CAME BEFORE THE PHONES WERE STOPPED. I FEEL LIKE WE'VE GONE BEYOND -- UNNECESSARILY BECAUSE I WAS HERE IN FEBRUARY.

>> WILL KIND OF STRUCTURE IS THIS?

>> THIS IS A DUPLEX. A MULTI FAMILY DUPLEX. AND THE PROPERTY IS UNINHABITABLE.

THERE WERE VERMIN IN THE PROPERTY. THE PROPERTY WAS FALLING APART. I'M DOING MY

[00:45:23]

BEST TO -- NOW I HAVE SOMEONE WHO I CONTRACTED WITH TO FIX THE PROPERTY. THERE WAS A DETACHED GARAGE ON THE PROPERTY. THIS PROPERTY WAS DILAPIDATED BEFORE I TOOK OWNERSHIP. I HAVE NOT HAD A 10 IN IT. I HAVE NOT MADE ANY MONEY IN IT IN TWO YEARS.

AND I AM A RESIDENT OF BROWARD COUNTY. I LIVE IN BROOKLYN. I HAVE TO COME APPEAR TO DEAL WITH CONTRACTORS, ALTHOUGH MY BUSINESS ADDRESS IS IN STUART, I DEAL WITH CONTRACTORS CHECK ON THE PROPERTY AND THIS IS AS A RESULT OF -- THE EXTENSIONS IN THE TIMELINE.

THE PROPERTY IS NOT RENTED AND IT IS CURRENTLY UNINHABITABLE.

>> ANYTHING FURTHER? >> NO, MA'AM. THANK YOU.

>> UP LIKE TO DO A QUICK RESPONSE.

>> THAT'S. >> THE REASON STAFF IS REQUESTING THAT THERE BE AN ASSESSMENT IS THAT THE CASE WAS INITIATED IN JUNE 2019. SO THERE WAS AMPLE TIME TO BE ADDRESSED. THE HEARING NOTICE WAS SENT CERTIFIED MAIL AND TO SIGN FOR THE VERY FIRST HEARING IN DECEMBER, NO ONE APPEARED FOR.

THERE WAS AMPLE OPPORTUNITY, LONG BEFORE THE FEBRUARY HEARING, FOR THIS TO HAVE BEEN ADDRESSED. LONG BEFORE COVID TO BE ADDRESSED. THAT IS WHY STAFF IS WILLING TO GIVE CONSIDERATION TO THE COVID, BUT ESSENTIALLY THIS CASE WAS INITIATED IN JUNE OF LAST YEAR.

OVER A YEAR AGO. NOTICE WAS RECEIVED BUT NOBODY SHOWED. AND THAT'S -- THAT'S PART OF THE JUSTIFICATION FOR STAFF MOVING FORWARD WITH RECOMMENDING A -- THE PENALTY OF $1200.

>> CANNOT RESPOND TO THAT? >> YES.

>> SHE IS CORRECT. THE NOTICE WAS GIVEN IN JUNE 2019. I HAVE DOCUMENTATION THAT I HAVE FOR YOU TO LOOK AT OF THE TIMELINES AND THE NAMES OF THE CONTRACTORS THAT HAVE CONTRACTED WITH SINCE FEBRUARY 2019.

THERE WAS -- JUNE 2019 I GOT THE NOTICES. I EVEN HAD ONE OF MY CONTRACTORS APPEAR FOR THE PERMIT VIOLATION. IN AUGUST. AND SO, I DO HAVE DOCUMENTATION OF THE TIMELINE OF EVERYONE THAT I CONTRACTED WITH AND HOW WE HAVE GOTTEN TO THIS POINT.

I HAVE GIVEN THAT TO THE CODE ENFORCEMENT AND SO I DO UNDERSTAND THAT THEY HAVE MADE SOME ALLEVIATION OF THE PINE DUE TO COVID-19. BUT BEFORE THAT, IT WAS NOT LIKE I WAS IN TRYING. I HAD FOUR SEPARATE CONTRACTORS TRYING TO GET THE WORK DONE AS STATED. I DID NEED A PERMIT TO DO THIS WORK.

>> OKAY. ANYTHING FURTHER? >> NO. BUT I WOULD LIKE FOR YOU TO REVIEW THE DOCUMENTATION.

>> IF YOU HAVE IT, I CAN LOOK AT IT.

>> I SENT TO DO THEM. THEY SHOULD HAVE A.

>> I HAVE IT SPECIAL MAGISTRATE.

>> ONLY PUT IT ON THE SCREEN. >> I WILL HAVE TO PULL LETTER.

>> IF NOT, YOU CAN JUST SHOW IT TO ME. AND WHILE SHE'S LOOKING FOR THAT, LET ME JUST STATE, YOU ARE NOT THE FIRST PERSON WHO IS COMING HERE WITH A CONTRACTOR PROBLEM.

>> I'M SURE. >> IT HAPPENS ALL THE TIME.

AND WITH THIS AREA BEING HARD-HIT, THIS ENTIRE SOUTHEAST SECTION OF FLORIDA OR SOUTHWEST SECTION, IT'S HARD TO FIND DECENT CONTRACTORS.

>> IT HAS BEEN DIFFICULT. >> I'M NOT SAYING ABOUT THAT ANYONE PER SE BUT IT'S BEEN DIFFICULT. I THINK I HEARD THIS CONTRACTOR PROBLEM AT LEAST ONCE A MONTH, THAT'S YOU HIRE CONTRACTORS AND THEY DON'T LIVE UP TO THE EXPECTATIONS.

THIS IS NOT YOUR OWN -- YOUR OWN RESIDENCE. SO YOU KNOW, YOU ARE CAUGHT IN A BAD SPOT.

>> YOU HAVE CONTRACTORS WORKING WITH YOU?

>> WE HAVE SOMEONE WORKING ON THE PROPERTY WHO HAS DONE THE REPAIRS AND DONE GOOD WORK. I

DO HAVE THE RIGHT PERSON. >> OKAY. AND THE BUILDING DEPARTMENT IS WELL AWARE OF THIS AS WELL. I'VE BEEN COMMUNICATING WITH MR. CROSS

EVER SINCE LAST YEAR AND THIS. >> WE HAD TO DEAL WITH MAKING -- PEOPLE MAKING COMPLAINTS SAYING THE CONTRACTORS ARE NOT LICENSED TO DO WORK HERE.

I UNDERSTAND THAT THAT IS UNFORTUNATE. AND IT'S ALWAYS A HOMEOWNER WHO SUFFERS OR THE

PERSON WHO OWNS THE PROPERTY. >> WHAT IS ON THE SCREEN IS -- THIS WASN'T A PACKET. THIS WAS A LETTER FROM MR. LECLERC SAYING THAT HE'S BEEN HERE THROUGH FOUR DIFFERENT CONTRACTORS. HE PROVIDED THE LETTER TO MR. COSTS WITH A

TIMELINE. >> OF THE FIRST CONTRACTOR

[00:50:04]

BEFORE THE CODE VIOLATION OF THIS DEPARTMENT HAVING ENSUED APRIL -- AND I WENT TO ANOTHER ONE IN JULY. AGAIN, THAT IS MY THIRD CONTRACTOR. AND IN DECEMBER 2019 IN ROUGHLY JANUARY -- IT'S NOT LIKE I WAS JUST NOT TRYING TO GET THIS DONE. AGAIN I LIVE IN BROWARD COUNTY. TRYING TO GET PEOPLE TO WORK AND HAVE ALL THE DIFFERENT RECEIPTS AND DOCUMENTS FROM THE MONEY THAT I WAS CHARGED FROM SOME OF THESE PEOPLE AS WELL AS DRAWINGS THAT

WERE DONE FOR ME. >> WELL, THERE'S ONE OTHER THING I WANT TO SAY HERE, AND THAT'S THE EXPRESSION OF CAVEAT EMPTOR, LET THE BUYER BEWARE.

PONCE A MONTH I HEAR CASES WHER SOMEBODY HAS BOUGHT PROPERTY ONLY TO FIND OUT THAT THE PROPERTY HAS MULTIPLE CODING BUILDING VIOLATIONS THAT THEY WERE NOT AWARE OF PRIOR TO PURCHASING THE PROPERTY. BECAUSE THEY BOUGHT IT. THEY BOUGHT IT AS IS. THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR BRINGING IT UP TO CODE.

>> YES, MA'AM. >> THE CITY ISN'T ALLOWED TO INTERFERE WITH WHOEVER YOU SELECT AS A CONTRACTOR. BUT THEY DO HAVE THE RESPONSIBILITY TO ENFORCE THE CODE THAT EXISTS IN THIS COUNTY. AGAIN, THAT IS UNFORTUNATE FOR YOU. YOUR TOTAL PINE WAS $7690 WHICH INCLUDES A $40 RECORDING BE. THE CITY IS ASKING FOR

REDUCTION OF 1200 -- TO 1200? >> YES, MA'AM.

>> AND YOU DON'T AGREE WITH THAT?

>> I DON'T BECAUSE I CAME HERE AGAIN ASKED HER TO ARGUMENT AND I READ THE LETTER. IT WAS SIX

OR SEVEN. THANK YOU. >> I THINK IT IS EXCESSIVE ESPECIALLY SINCE I HAVE TRIED TO DO MY DUE DILIGENCE AND I DID APPEAR HERE IN FEBRUARY THINKING I WAS APPEARING ON BOTH VIOLATIONS.

>> OKAY. >> ALL RIGHT. WHATEVER I DO HERE TODAY, IT WILL GO UP TO THE CITY COMMISSION FOR APPROVAL WHAT I CAN CHANGE MY RECOMMENDATION. YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO APPEAR BEFORE THEM AND ONCE I MAKE MY RULING, SOMEONE WILL TELL YOU WHEN THE NEXT CITY COMMISSION IS IN THE PROCEDURE THAT YOU NEED TO FOLLOW IF YOU WANT TO APPEAR. BUT DESPITE THE CIRCUMSTANCES AND -- LIKE I SAID, A LOT OF PEOPLE COMING HERE WITH THE SAME PROBLEM. THERE IS NO OTHER WAY TO SAY OTHER THAN THE SHADY CONTRACTORS. THE CITY HAS TO APPROVE WHAT I DO -- THERE IS A $250 FEE THAT THE CITY COMMISSION CHARGES FOR YOU TO APPEAR BEFORE THEM.

AND SO, YOUR FIND DOES INCLUDE THAT $250 BE.

SO BASED ON THE EVIDENCE AND TESTIMONY PRESENTED, I WILL REDUCE THE LIEN TO $1200. AND AS I EXPLAINED, THAT'S NOT THE FINAL SAY SO. IT WILL GO BEFORE THE CITY COMMISSION.

AFTER YOU DECIDE THAT YOU CAN DECIDE WHETHER YOU WANT TO PURSUE THIS OR NOT. I DO NOT KNOW WHAT KIND OF ROLLING AGAIN WITH THEM.

>> DO I HAVE TO APPEAR BEFORE THE COMMISSION?

>> YOU CAN. LET ME LET THE CITY EXPLAIN THAT TO YOU.

>> BEFORE I DO THAT IS EVERY TIMEFRAME TO HAVE THE $1200 PAID?

>> WE DID THAT LAST TIME THAT WE HAD TO INCLUDE THE CITY COMMISSION HEARING DATE. SO

MUCH TIME. >> FROM THE -- WHATEVER THE COMMISSION DECIDES. I NEED TO PUT THAT IN THE ORDER.

>> WHATEVER THEY DECIDE, HOW MUCH TIME DO NEED TO PAY THE MONEY THAT WILL BE ASSESSED? I'M RECOMMENDING $1200. HOW MUCH TIME WOULD YOU NEED TO PAY THAT?

>> THAT BE DEPENDS WHEN THE DATE IS. THEY HAVE THE FINAL.

>> BUT FROM THAT DATE WOULD YOU NEED 30 DAYS, 60 DAYS, 90 DAYS?

>> 90 DAYS. >> 90 DAYS.

>> FOR STIPULATION OF THE PARTIES.

>> SO WHAT WILL HAPPEN IS WE WILL PREPARE THIS TO GO IN FRONT OF THE CITY COMMISSION.

WE WILL TRY FOR OCTOBER. WE WILL TRY FOR OCTOBER 5. WE HAVE TO HAVE THAT IN BY NEXT WEDNESDAY. WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO GET THAT IN BY NEXT WEDNESDAY?

>> I'LL TRY. >> (LAUGHING).

>> THE OCTOBER 5 HEARING STARTS AT 6 PM.

>> FOR THE 19TH? >> OKAY.

IF YOU WISH TO SPEAK ON A DRAFT TO COME AND SIGN UP TO SPEAK ON AND THEN YOU CAN REQUEST THAT THE COMMISSION GIVES IT ADDITIONAL CONSIDERATION. IF YOU WISH TO APPEAR, YOU HAVE TO COME 15 MINUTES EARLY AND HAVE TO SIGN UP TO SPEAK ON THIS ITEM. THAT WILL BE OUTLINED IN A LETTER THAT COLLEEN WILL SEND YOU.
