THE PROPERTY HAS BEEN UTILIZED AT SOME SORT OF LODGING ESTABLISHMENT.

SO IT ALL LONG TERM, THE PRIMARY STRUCTURE WAS A TWO BEDROOM RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY CONVERTED INTO TIM SLEEPING AREAS WITHOUT PROPER PERMIT.

LEGAL NOTICE WAS SENT TO ALL LEGAL CORRIDORS AND HAS BEEN POSTED ON THE PROPERTY.

ALL MY CONTACT HAS BEEN THROUGH A COORDINATE, THE BUYER WHO STATED SHE'S REPRESENTING THE OWNER UNTIL 1820, 19 AND SPECI.

I SPOKE WITH COURTNEY WHO STATED SHE WOULD BE THE POINT OF CONTACT AND ALL REPAIRS WOULD BE STARTING NOVEMBER 21ST.

I RECEIVED AN ENGINEER'S REPORT AND A ROOF AND ASSESSMENT.

THE ENGINEER'S REPORT STATED THE SLAB IN THE BEAM IS STRUCTURALLY SOUND BUT RECOMMENDED EVER EVERY FALL.

2019 FOLLOWUP WALKED THROUGH WITH COURTNEY.

SOME THINGS WERE ADDRESSED, BUT NO OTHER PENDING

[00:15:01]

THE LAND USE OF WORK WITHOUT PERMIT FOUNDATION OR ROOF HAS BEEN REPAIRED, NEW VIOLATION I'VE WITHOUT OBSERVED, ET CETERA, RESTRUCTURE EXPOSED, ELECTRICAL WIRES, ALL TO ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS AND DAMAGED FLOORING AND WALLS ONLY STATED THAT THE OWNER HAS NO INTENTION ON REPAIRING THESE ET CETERA, RESTRUCTURES OR ANY OF THE VIOLATIONS DUE TO NOT UTILIZE THEM.

AS I EXPLAINED TO COURTNEY, WHY THESE REPAIRS AFTER THE INSPECTION, I EXPLAINED COURTNEY THAT THE NEXT STEP WILL BE MISSING FEBRUARY 7TH.

ANOTHER NOTICE OF VIOLATION WAS SENSITIVE, BUT NEW VIOLATION AT THE PRESENT PRESENT DAY I'LL REMAIN IN VIOLATION ON THE PREMISE HAS NOT BEEN RECTIFIED NOR ANY ATTEMPTS TO REMEDY.

I'VE HAD NO OTHER COMMUNICATION WITH THE ON AND OFF.

UM, THE FOLLOWING, THE FOLLOWING DATE AND TIMESTAMP PHOTOS TO PICK THE SIDE OF VIOLATIONS FOUND FROM THE INITIAL FOLLOWUP INSPECTION AND ONGOING SITE.

AND THIS IS GOING TO BE TWO EIGHT, TWO, TWO Q.

UM, SO A IS GOING TO BE A, OKAY.

AND THAT'S GOING TO BE TWO AFTER TWO, I MOVED TO THE NEXT ONE.

THAT'S THE DAMAGED ROOF AS WELL.

UM, SO TWO JAY IS GOING TO SHOW THE EXPOSED ELECTRICAL WIRING, UM, AND HOW THE FAULTY CONNECTION IS.

IF YOU CAN SEE WHERE THE TAPE IS, UM, THEY HAVE A TABLE ELECTRICAL SWITCH, WHICH IS GOING TO BE THE ON SWITCH.

UM, MOVE THAT TO K TWO K SHELLS, THE DAMAGE FLOWING AND THE SURFACE NOT MAINTAINED.

TWO L TWO L WAS GOING TO SHOW, UM, RODENT SPECIES TO M IS IT'S GONNA SHOW, UM, THIS IS THE INTERIOR SHOWING THAT THE STRUCTURE ITSELF HAVE MULTIPLE ROOMS. UM, THAT PHOTO, IF YOU GO TO THE NEXT ONE TO TWO L TWO AND STAR, UM, THIS ONE RIGHT HERE IS GOING TO SHOW HOW THE INTERIOR SLOPING, UM, FOR THE, THE CONVERSION, UM, THE PHOTO OF NOT JUST LIKE THAT, THAT'S HOW THE FLOORING IS.

IF YOU LOOK AT THE DOOR AT THE BOTTOM OF IT, YOU CAN TELL HOW IT SLANTED TO, OH, THE NEXT PHOTO.

THIS IS ONE OF THE ROOMS THAT, UM, THAT SHOWS IT DOESN'T HAVE NEGRESS.

IT HAS NO WINDOWS INSIDE OF IT.

UM, THAT'S GOING TO BE TWO O N THROUGH TO CUBE.

IT SHOWS MULTIPLE ROOMS WITHOUT EAGERNESS.

I BELIEVE IT'S THREE OF THEM.

THIS COMPLETES MY PRESENTATION.

I'M OPEN FOR ANY QUESTIONS BECAUSE OF THE EXISTING CONDITIONS SHOWN IN THESE PHOTOGRAPHS.

AND THOSE DESCRIBED IN THE FINDINGS OF FACT, BECAUSE THEY'RE STILL FOUND THAT THIS STRUCTURE IS A PUBLIC AND AN ATTRACTIVE NUISANCE WITH UNSAFE CONDITIONS.

STAFF ASK THE COMMISSION TO ADMIT EXHIBIT ONE, WHICH INCLUDES THE NOTICE OF VIOLATION OWNERSHIP INFORMATION FROM THE TROPICAL CENTRAL APPRAISAL DISTRICT NOTICES OF HEARING STAFF, PROPOSED STAFF, PROPOSED FINDINGS OF FACT, AND CONCLUSIONS OF LAW AND OTHER SIMILAR DOCUMENTS AND EXHIBITS TO EIGHT THROUGH TO QUEUE, WHICH ARE PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE PROPERTY AND VIOLATION STAFF ALSO REQUESTED THE COMMISSION ADOPT THE PROPOSED FINDINGS OF FACT AND CONCLUSIONS OF LAW FOR THIS PROPERTY IN ORDER THE FOLLOWING WITHIN 60 DAYS FROM THE DATE, THE ORDERS MAILED,

THANK YOU, UH, INVESTIGATOR, RIGHT.

AND OFFICER DUMAS ARE GOING TO SUGGEST THAT WE HOLD ALL QUESTIONS UNTIL AFTER WE HAVE HEARD FROM THE PROPERTY OWNER, JUST BECAUSE WE'VE GOT ENOUGH GOING ON TONIGHT, UNLESS ANYONE OPPOSES THAT IDEA, WE WILL, WE WILL LET YOU PROCEED WITH THE, UH, WITH CALLING THE PROPERTY OWNER.

OKAY.

SORRY.

OH, YES.

ACTUALLY I WAS JUST GOING TO, UM, SEE WHO IS ON THE LINE.

SO COURTNEY DRINAN IS NOT WITH US.

WE HAVE THE ATTORNEY.

IS THAT WHAT I HEARD? I'M HERE WITH MS. GOING TO BE DOING, BUT YEAH.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

AND I'M SORRY, WHAT WAS, WHAT WAS YOUR NAME AGAIN? MS. DAY? I'M WORRIED.

YEAH.

OKAY, GREAT.

OKAY.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO GO AHEAD AND PROCEED.

OKAY.

AND IF YOU DON'T MIND, MICHELLE, I'LL GO FIRST.

UM, THIS IS LORI DAY ON BEHALF OF THE PROPERTY OWNER, 3,606 THOMPSON STREET.

UM, THE PROPERTY WAS PURCHASED IN 2018.

UM, THE WEIRD STRUCTURES THAT HE SEE IN THE PHOTOS, THEY WERE EXISTING STRUCTURES.

UM, THE, UM, THE, MY CLIENT HAD NO KNOWLEDGE THAT THERE WERE ANY PERMITTING ISSUES OR OTHER ISSUES WITH THE STRUCTURES.

UM, WHEN THE FIRST, UM, NOTICE OF VIOLATIONS CAME IN THE FALL, THEY, UM, IMMEDIATELY TOOK STEPS TO, UM, BEGIN THE REPAIRS.

UM, AND IF YOU'LL LOOK AT THE EXHIBITS THAT WE SUBMITTED, UM, IT'S, THERE'S THE ENGINEERING REPORT THAT WAS OBTAINED IN.

UM, I BELIEVE NOVEMBER THE FOUNDATION WAS EXPECTED INSPECTED IN NOVEMBER.

THE ROOF WAS ALSO INSPECTED AND, UM, PEST CONTROL, UM, UH, CONTRACT WAS SIGNED.

UM, SECOND OCTOBER, UM, THE REPAIRS WERE MADE, UM, TO THE FOUNDATION AND THE ROOF THAT, UM, SOME OF THE OTHER ISSUES THAT ARE IN THE VIOLATION REPORT, INCLUDING, UM, THE, UH, SMOKE DETECTOR, ALARMS, CARBON MONOXIDE ALARM, THOSE WERE ALL INSTALLED.

UM, SO ALL THE THINGS THAT THEY, UM, COULD, UM, START REPAIRS ON, THEY HAD STARTED ON THOSE REPAIRS.

UM, THE, UM, THE PROBLEMS WITH THE RINGS, UM, THAT WERE NOT HAVING THAT DID NOT HAVE APPROPRIATE EGRESS.

THOSE ROOMS WERE CONVERTED TO, UH, UH, JUST A STORAGE OR CLOSET ROOMS. AND SO, UM, THAT, UM, UM, RESOLVE THE ISSUES WITH IT, INGRESS AND EGRESS IN TERMS OF, UH, UH, ANY TYPE OF ROOMS FOR LODGING, UM, AND ATTEMPTS HAVE BEEN MADE SINCE THEN TO ENGAGE ENGINEERING FIRM WITH THE COVID, UM, PRICES THAT DELAYED THAT PROCESS.

UM, THEY'RE TRYING TO DETERMINE THE COST OF REMOVING THOSE, UM, OUTBUILDINGS VERSUS TRYING TO, UM, REHAB THEM AND GET THEM IN SHAPE.

AND THAT'S AN ONGOING PROCESS.

UM, BEG WOULD ASK FOR, UM, UH, A LITTLE BIT MORE TIME, UM, TO GET THESE ISSUES RESOLVED.

UM, CONSIDERING IT'S KINDA DIFFICULT TO GET, UM, THE ENGINEERING FIRMS TO ASSIST AND WITH THE DELAY, THEY WOULD LIKE 120 DAYS IF WE COULD.

AND THEN WITH AN RE-INSPECTION, UM, THERE'S NO BEEN NO INTENT TO IGNORE, UM, THE, UM, VIOLATIONS IT'S JUST BEEN DIFFICULT.

UM, COURTNEY CAN, UM, GIVE A LITTLE BIT MORE DETAIL ON WHAT HAS BEEN REPAIRED, UM, AND, AND WE'RE BOTH AVAILABLE FOR QUESTIONS IF ANYBODY HAS ANY QUESTIONS.

OKAY.

THANK YOU, COURTNEY, WOULD YOU LIKE TO GO AHEAD? YEAH.

SO, UM,

[00:25:01]

WHEN YOU RECEIVED THE LATEST NOTICE, UM, THE 25TH OF OCTOBER, WE WENT DOWN THE LIST AND RESOLVED EVERYTHING THAT WE COULD DO, UM, AT THE TIME, INCLUDING ADDING SMOKE AND CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTORS IN THE ROOM, UM, GETTING A FOUNDATION, UM, ASSESSMENT BY AN ENGINEER AND THE ROOFING ASSESSMENT BY A ROOFING EXPERT, UM, OBTAINING A PERMIT WITH A WATER HEATER, UM, INSTALLING CSPI RECEPTACLES IN THE BATHROOM, IN THE KITCHEN, UM, MAKING REPAIRS TO THE, UM, FAMA'S FACIA AND FIGHTING AND, UM, CALLING PEST-CONTROL.

UM, WE'VE DONE EVERYTHING ON THE LIST WHEN OFFICER AND HIS COLLEAGUE IN FEBRUARY, WE WALKED THROUGH EVERYTHING THAT WE REPAIRED AT THE TIME.

UM, THE ONLY THING THAT WAS PENDING WAS THE, UM, EXTERIOR ASSESSOR RESTRUCTURE IN THE BACK.

AND, UM, WE WERE TRYING TO WEIGH THE PROS AND CONS OF REPAIRING IT, UM, AND THEN, OR TEARING IT DOWN AND THAT'S WHERE WE ARE RIGHT NOW.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

UM, YOU'RE WELCOME QUESTION FOR OFFICER DUMAS.

TYREE, ARE YOU STILL ON THE LINE? YES, I'M STILL.

OKAY.

SO THE PHOTOS THAT WE'RE LOOKING AT, IT LOOKS LIKE THE MOST RECENT PHOTOS, THE ONES FROM THIS MODEL OR JUST OF THOSE ACCESSORY STRUCTURES IN THE BACK, NOT AS THE MAIN STRUCTURE, IS THAT CORRECT? UM, NOW THE, IF YOU CAN SEE THE EIGHT FOUR ON TWO, SEE THAT IS THE, THAT'S THE PRIMARY STRUCTURE SCROLLING GETTING THERE.

OKAY.

SO FROM WHAT I'M SEEING, IT LOOKS LIKE ON THE PRIMARY STRUCTURE, THE MAIN CONCERNS ARE THE BEDROOMS THAT DO NOT HAVE A MEANS OF EGRESS FOUNDATION OR THE SKIRTING ON THE FOUNDATION.

RIGHT.

AND THEN THE BULK OF THE OTHER CONCERNS ARE ALL ON THE ACCESSORY BUILDINGS IN THE BACK.

IS THAT A FAIR SUMMARY? UM, FOR THE MOST PART, YEAH.

SO, UM, ACTUALLY STATED, UM, SOME, SOME THINGS WERE ADDRESSED, UM, YOU KNOW, THE SMOKE DETECTS CALLED OUTSIDE DETECTIVES.

UM, THEY, SHE STATED THEY STOPPED UTILIZING THOSE, THOSE ROOMS AND TO UTILIZE THE MS. STORAGE.

UM, SO MY TIME INSPECTION, NO ONE WAS THERE.

THAT'S WHY THOSE PHOTOS SHOW THOSE UNITS VACANT.

IT SHOWED NOTHING INSIDE THOSE ROOMS. UM, THE, THE ROOF AND ASSESSMENT ITSELF, UM, THE ROOF PUT SOME SUGGESTIONS ON THERE.

UH, THE FOUNDATION FOR THE FOUNDATION, THEY ALSO ASKED FOR SOME THINGS TO BE DONE, UM, THAT HASN'T BEEN ADDRESSED EITHER.

UM, UM, THE STRUCTURE ITSELF, AS FAR AS THE SLOPING, UM, ADDRESSING THE SLOPING.

UM, I'M ASSUMING THAT THEY'RE GOING TO NEED AN ENGINEER TO TRY TO ADDRESS THAT.

UM, BUT AS YOU STATED, MOST OF THE, THE CONCERNS OR A LOT OF BROKE OF THEM OR THE ACCESSORY STRUCTURES, THOSE ELECTRICAL WIRES, UM, THAT WAS IN THE REAR, THOSE WERE IN THE WASHROOM.

UM, IT WAS, IT WAS IMPROPERLY DONE.

UM, AND STARTING TO SEE, YOU KNOW, AROUND THE PROPERTY THAT IT SEEMS LIKE THAT'S, WHAT'S GOING ON PROPERTY FOR US, YOU KNOW, WITH THOSE, SOME ROOMS BEING CONVERTED.

UM, THE, THE TIP THAT WE HAD, THE CALLER THAT WAS CALLED IN ON THE PROPERTY, UM, WAS PERTAINING TO, UM, INDIVIDUALS THAT WAS HELPING TO DO REPAIRS ON THE PROPERTY, UM, WITHOUT PROPER PERMITS.

AND THAT'S KIND OF WHAT WE KEPT RUNNING INTO HIM ROBBERY.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

SO FELLOW FELLOW COMMISSIONERS, UM, IF YOU HAVE A QUESTION, JUST PLEASE SPEAK UP AND WE'LL TRY NOT TO TALK ON TOP OF EACH OTHER.

THIS IS WORDY.

MAY I ASK

[00:30:01]

A QUESTION, PLEASE? GO AHEAD.

COMMISSIONER THOMPSON.

OKAY.

I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF, UH, THE, UH, THE OWNER AND, AND OUR ATTORNEY, UH, HAS, UH, A PLAN FOR COMPLETING THIS AND WHAT KIND OF TIME WOULD IT TAKE? WHAT KIND OF FUNDING WOULD IT TAKE AND DO THEY HAVE THAT FUNDING AVAILABLE? UM, THIS IS WHY, I MEAN, HE'S DOING A LITTLE FEEDBACK.

SO, UM, I THINK THAT THE, UM, THE TIMING WAS 120 DAY, UM, THAT I BELIEVE THAT THEY WERE DELAYED A LITTLE BIT WITH THE COVID CRISIS, YOU KNOW, MOVING FORWARD WITH THE PLAN.

AND HIS COURTNEY MENTIONED THAT, YOU KNOW, THE DECISION IS, DO WE AIR THE OUTBUILDINGS DOWN OR CAN THEY BE REHAB? UM, UM, SO THAT'S KIND OF WHERE THEY ARE RIGHT NOW.

UM, FUNDING IS AN ISSUE, UM, GIVEN THAT, UM, YOU KNOW, A LOT OF PEOPLE HAD, YOU KNOW, ISSUES WITH, YOU KNOW, BUSINESS AND INCOME, BUT, UM, I BELIEVE IF WE COULD HAVE SOME TIME WORK ON IT, WE COULD COME UP WITH SOME AND COURTNEY MAY BE ABLE TO SPEAK TO THAT.

WELL, HOW MUCH IT WOULD COST.

UH, I DO NOT KNOW.

UM, WE DO NOT.

UM, NO, UH, THAT'S, THAT'S WHAT WE'RE IN THE PROCESS OF DOING IS PROCURING A PROFESSIONAL ENGINEER, UM, TO PROVIDE SOME, UM, PROFESSIONAL ADVICE ON THAT.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

NO PROBLEM.

DO ANY OTHER COMMISSIONERS HAVE QUESTIONS? NO.

THIS COMMISSIONER GREEN.

CAN YOU HEAR ME? YES, PLEASE.

GO AHEAD.

COMMISSIONER GREEN.

WANT TO KNOW FROM A, UM, UH, THE PROPERTY OWNERS AND THEIR REPRESENTATIVES, UH, CAN YOU GIVE US A SPECIFIC DEADLINE WITH WHATEVER ASSUMPTIONS YOU HAVE FOR THIS COULD BE RESOLVED? I RECOGNIZE THAT A LOT OF THE RECOVERY DOES NOT HELP SMALL BUSINESS.

I'VE HEARD A LOT OF OTHER ABOUT BANKS, JUST NO, LONDON IS SMALL BUSINESS, BUT DO YOU HAVE A TIMEFRAME OF PRODUCT, THE PLAN WITH MILESTONES THAT YOU COULD GIVE US SOME INSURANCES WHEN THIS COULD BE ADDRESSED? THANK YOU.

AS DAVE SAID, 120 DAYS, UM, WE COULD, UM, COME TO THAT CONCLUSION, THE PEOPLE THAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT, THE PEOPLE THAT YOU'RE DEPENDENT UPON, THAT THEY AGREE TO 120 DAYS.

YES.

OKAY.

VERY GOOD.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

I APPRECIATE THAT.

THANK YOU.

DO ANY OTHER COMMISSIONERS HAVE QUESTIONS? UH, YES.

THIS IS JANE FOR SAN ANTONIO.

UH, MR. DUMAS, UH, WHEN YOU, UH, MENTIONED ABOUT THE, UH, WORK THAT WAS BEING DONE, THAT WAS REPORTED IN, WAS THAT IN WHAT, WHAT, WHAT WAS IT BEING DONE? WAS IT ELECTRICAL AT SOME, GIVEN WHAT WE SAW? JUST A LITTLE BIT OF THE ELECTRICAL THAT WAS KIND OF EXPOSED, UM, WHAT, UH, WHAT WORK WAS BEING DONE THAT WAS NOT AUTHORIZED OR PERMANENT? IT WOULD HAVE BEEN, UM, THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN TO THE MAIN STRUCTURE.

UM, THE MAIN STRUCTURE, AS I SAID EARLIER, IT'S, IT'S BEEN CONVERTED TO A 10 BEDROOM.

UM, AND SO DOPE.

ADDITIONAL ROOMS DOES NOT HAVE EGRESS.

UM, THERE'S NO WAY, UH, NO WAY POSSIBLE FOR THE INDIVIDUALS THAT THEY HAD STAYING THERE TO, TO GET OUT IN CASE OF A FIRE.

OKAY.

OKAY.

UM, AS FAR AS THAT ELECTRICAL STUFF WITH THAT, UH, IS THAT STILL OKAY.

IT'S IT'S, AS OF THE CURRENT TIME IT HAS BEEN COVERED UP, IT'S COVERED UP, UM, IF IT'S PROPERLY DONE, UM, I'M NOT SURE BECAUSE IT'S COVERED UP, IT'S BEEN ADDRESSED, BUT IT'S COVERED UP AND, YOU KNOW, IF THEY DID NOT HAVE OBTAINED A PERMIT TO DO IT EITHER.

SO, UM, YOU KNOW, AS, AS, YOU KNOW, IF YOU GET A PERMIT, IT COSTS TO

[00:35:01]

KEEP IT OVER UNTIL IT IS INSPECTED.

CORRECT.

AND OF COURSE I HAVEN'T DONE THAT.

UM, NO, SIR.

OKAY.

UM, OWNERS OR OWNER'S REPRESENTATIVE IN WHAT CAPACITY, IF ANY, ARE YOU GOING TO RECTIFY THAT? CAN YOU MAKE SURE THAT I'M PAYING THE NECESSARY PERMITS FOR ANY WORK THAT NEEDED TO BE DONE OBTAIN NECESSARY PERMIT TO PERFORM THE REQUIRED WORK? OKAY.

DID YOU LIVE NEAR THE WORK THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE? ARE YOU GOING TO OBTAIN THE PROPER PERMITTING OR THE WORK THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE? MY QUESTION TO THE MINISTER, I'M AGREEING WITH THAT.

I JUST WANT TO FIND OUT WHAT THE ANSWER IS AND IF I MAY, I'M NOT SURE EXACTLY WHAT THE ELECTRICAL IS IN THE MAGAZINE.

IT SOUNDS LIKE, UM, PEOPLE ARE CONCERNED THAT WE KNOW THAT THAT WORK WAS DONE SAFELY.

SO EVEN IF THAT WORK WAS ALREADY DONE, WE'VE GOT A PERMIT.

SO THERE'LL BE INSPECTED.

SURE.

WHEN WE HANG UP TOMORROW, I'LL, WE'LL HAVE THEM START ON OBTAINING THE APPROPRIATE PERMIT.

MR. DEMOSS, DO YOU HAVE ANY INSIGHT INTO HOW FAST THEY CAN GET A PERMIT, ELECTRICAL LOAD INSPECTED? I DO NOT.

UM, AT THIS CURRENT TIME, UM, BEING A RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY, I KNOW THEY USUALLY HAVE A TURNAROUND PERMIT, BUT I'M NOT SURE AT THE TIME DUE TO COVID HOW FANS THEY'LL BE ABLE TO OBTAIN A PERMIT.

DID YOU TAKE MORE THAN TWO WEEKS? UM, WHEN, WHEN WE DID SOME SUBMIT OUR REQUESTS, UM, I REQUEST, WE STAYED AT 60 DAYS BECAUSE WE THINK WE ARE THINKING TO ATTAIN A PERMIT.

UM, AND BOTH THINGS COMPLETED.

IT WOULD HAVE TAKEN 60 DAYS.

THANK YOU, MR. APPRECIATE THE INSIGHT.

SO I JUST, I JUST WANT TO REMIND THE COMMISSION THAT WE REPORTED.

I BELIEVE AT THE LAST HEARING THAT THE, UM, THE DEVELOPMENT SERVICES DEPARTMENT IS RUNNING.

NORMALLY THEY ARE ONLINE, BUT THEIR PROCEDURES ARE MOVING FORWARD AS NORMAL, EVEN THOUGH IT IS DURING COBIT.

THANK YOU.

THAT'S RIGHT.

THIS IS CHAIR FIBERGLASS.

I ACTUALLY HAVE A QUESTION FOR MS. DINA AND THE PROPERTY OWNER AND, AND REPRESENTATIVE TWO PART QUESTION.

THE FIRST PART IS WHO DID THE WORK TO CREATE THE 10 DIFFERENT BEDROOMS THAT ARE NOT TO CODE IN THE STRUCTURE.

AND THE SECOND QUESTION IS WHAT DO YOU INTEND TO DO WITH THIS PROPERTY? LONGTERM? WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS WITH IT? THE WORK? UM, I, I DO NOT KNOW BECAUSE I ONLY STARTED, UM, WORKING WITH MR. AFTER HE PURCHASED THEM.

YOU PURCHASED THIS PROPERTY IN EARLY 2018 AND WHEN HE BOUGHT IT, I KNOW THE ACCESSORY STRUCTURE WAS ALREADY THERE.

UM, AS FAR AS THE INSIDE ROOMS, I DON'T KNOW.

AND AS FAR AS THE LONG TERM, UM, HE'D LIKE TO KEEP THE PRECEDE, THE MAIN PROPERTY.

UM, HE DOESN'T WANT TO TEAR IT DOWN.

YOU GUYS WANT TO KEEP IT UP.

OKAY.

SO I THINK THAT THE QUESTION THAT I HAD TO HAD TO DO WITH, DOES HE INTEND TO RENT THIS OUT OR IS THIS SHORT TERM RENTALS, IS THIS LONG TERM RENTALS OR, YOU KNOW, IT DOES THE OWNER INTEND TO LIVE THERE? UM, I'M NOT SURE ABOUT HIM LIVING THERE, BUT HE DOES WANT TO RUN IT OUT.

[00:40:01]

OKAY.

HERE'S THE CONCERN THAT I WOULD HAVE IS THAT I'M HAVING TO OWN A PROPERTY IN THE CITY OF AUSTIN, AS WE ALL KNOW IT IS GETTING MORE AND MORE EXPENSIVE.

AND PRESUMABLY THE OWNER NEEDS TO HAVE AN INCOME ON THIS PROPERTY TO MAKE IT WORK.

AND I'M PRETTY SURE THAT THE OWNER WILL NOT BE ABLE TO MAKE THIS WORK.

IF ALL OF THOSE, YOU, IF ALL OF THOSE ROOMS ARE JUST USED FOR STORAGE.

SO IF THOSE ROOMS ARE TO BECOME HABITABLE BEDROOMS, THERE'S A BIT MORE WORK THAT DOES NEED TO BE DONE.

CORRECT? YEAH.

I BELIEVE IT'S GOING TO BE A RENTAL PROPERTY.

UM, AND YOU KNOW, THE PEOPLE ARE SIX BROOM.

I THINK IT'S SIX RESIDENT LIMIT.

THEY DON'T, THEY'RE NOT GOING TO DO THAT.

SO THEY'RE JUST LIMITED TO SIX PEOPLE AND, UM, THEY WON'T BE MAKING ANY MORE BEDROOMS. THAT'S MY UNDERSTANDING.

IS THAT CORRECT? THANK YOU FOR THAT.

UM, THIS IS COMMISSIONER MILLER.

CAN I JUST ASK, SO WE HAVE ON THE LINE, WE HAVE AN ATTORNEY AND THEN THE OTHER PERSON I HAD ORIGINALLY THOUGHT WAS THE OWNER, BUT ARE YOU THE PROPERTY MANAGER OR WHAT IS YOUR RELATIONSHIP TO THE OWNER? I'M HIS ASSISTANT.

OKAY.

HE DOES NOT LIVE IN AUSTIN.

AND SO I'M HERE LOCALLY FOR HIM.

OKAY.

DID WE HAVE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS FROM THE COMMISSIONERS, ANY OF THE COMMISSIONERS, LIKE TO MAKE A MOTION, LIKE MOTION THAT WE CLOSE THE DISCUSSION.

I JUST WANT TO REMIND YOU TO ADMIT THE EXHIBIT.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

I WILL GO AHEAD AND DO A BIT STAFF'S EXHIBITS ONE AND TWO AND THEN I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO ADMIT THE PROPERTY OWNERS EXHIBITS.

UM, I'M SORRY, WAS IT EXHIBITS ONE THROUGH THREE PROPERTY OWNER EXHIBITS ONE THROUGH THREE.

OKAY.

AND THE PUBLIC HEARING IS NOW CLOSED.

SO, UM, COMMISSIONERS, WOULD YOU LIKE TO DISCUSS, WOULD YOU LIKE TO MAKE ANOTHER MOTION AND THEN WOULD THEN DISCUSS, I HAVE A COUPLE, THIS IS COMING TO COMMISSIONER SHEDDY AND I HAVE A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS, UM, FOR THE OTHER COMMISSIONERS.

SO MAYBE STAFF CAN HELP GET, GO AHEAD.

OKAY.

UM, SO I GUESS, UM, I HEARD THE REPRESENTATIVE OR THE OWNER SAYING THAT YES, THEY WOULD LIKE TO RUN THE PROPERTY, BUT THEY ALSO COULD JUST LEAVE IT AT SIX ROOMS INSTEAD OF HAVING THOSE ADDITIONAL ROOMS. SO MY QUESTION IS EVEN IF THE WENT BACK TO SIX ROOMS, UM, DOES THE ISSUE OF THE UNPERMITTED MODIFICATIONS STILL NEED TO BE ADDRESSED? I WOULD THINK SO.

THAT WOULD BE CORRECT.

I THINK SO, TOO.

OKAY.

THAT WAS, I THINK THAT WOULD ANSWER MY QUESTION.

THAT WOULD ANSWER MY OTHER QUESTION AS WELL.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

SO HOW MANY OF THE COMMISSIONERS, OH, PLEASE GO AHEAD.

HOW WOULD A MOTION WHERE THEY'RE REQUIRED TO ADDRESS THE EGRESS AND INGRESS SAFELY FROM THE ASSUMPTION THAT THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE MORE ROOMS THAN THERE ARE NOW AT THE STORAGE IS NOT GOING TO STAY STORAGE.

IT'S GOING TO BECOME RENTED OUT AND THAT, UH, WE GIVE THEM 120 DAYS, BUT AFTER THAT, THE REMAINDER OF THE STAFF'S RECOMMENDATION TO STATES SO THAT THEY HAVE, UH, FOUR MONTHS TO GET, UM, THINGS RECTIFIED, UM, TO GET, UH, PERMITS, TO GET IT INSPECTED.

AND WITH THE ASSUMPTION, THEY'RE NOT GOING TO HAVE HALF THE, UH, REAL ESTATE SITTING IDLY BY WITH A BOXES.

UH, HOW CAN WE, UM, MOLD THAT THE, UH, THE, UH, THE RUBBER RECOMMENDATION IN OUR MOTION, UM, THAT LINE WHAT'S THE BEST WAY TO HANDLE IT.

IT WAS A GOOD QUESTION BECAUSE I DON'T BELIEVE WE CAN EXTEND BEYOND 90 DAYS WITHOUT HAVING, UM,

[00:45:01]

WELL, ONE, THE PROPERTY REPRESENTATIVE WOULD HAVE TO COME BACK AFTER 90 DAYS TO GIVE US AN UPDATE, WHICH I DON'T THINK ANY OF US HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THAT, BUT I'M NOT EVEN SURE WE CAN EXTEND PAST THAT WITHOUT, UH, MORE DOCUMENTATION OF, YOU KNOW, REAL ESTIMATES OF A TIGHTER SCHEDULE.

RIGHT.

SO A BIT MORE DOCUMENTATION THAN WHAT WE HAVE.

RIGHT.

AND I MEAN, HOPEFULLY THEY WOULD HAVE LIKE A PERMIT BY THAT AND THEN INSPECTION OCCURRED.

SO I NEED DAY SOUNDS GOOD.

AND IF THEY NEED TO COME BACK FOR ANOTHER 30, UH, I THINK IT'S, UM, RIGHT NOW THE COST OF DOING BUSINESS, WAS THAT A MOTION OR JUST DISCUSSION? I DON'T HAVE MY CHEAT SHEETS IN FRONT OF ME.

UM, UH, I, UH, MAKE A MOTION THAT WE ACCEPT THE STAFF'S FINDINGS OF FACT.

AND, BUT, UH, THEN THE, UH, UM, THE TIMEFRAME FROM TWO 90 DAYS, I DON'T HAVE HIM IN FRONT OF RIGHT THIS RIGHT NOW, BUT MOST DAYS, UM, AND HOLD OFF ON THE PENALTIES.

AND, UH, FOR 90 DAYS, WAS THAT A SECOND? I MISSED THAT, WHOEVER THAT WAS MINE, IT LOOKS LIKE A PABLO.

I DON'T KNOW IF THAT WAS CORRECT OR NOT.

OKAY.

WHOEVER SPOKE EITHER SECOND OR COMMENTED.

I DIDN'T GET THAT.

SO I DON'T BELIEVE WE HAVE A SECOND YET.

AND I THINK, UH, I THINK WE WERE JUST OVER HEARING BACKGROUND NOISE FROM COMMISSIONER ABILA.

CAN, CAN I JUST ASK THEM CLARIFY, I'M HAVING A HARD TIME FINDING IN THE DOCUMENTS, WHAT EXACTLY THE STAFF RECOMMENDATION SAID, IS IT INCLUDING THAT THEY HAVE TO MAKE THOSE ROOMS? SO THEY HAVE PROPER LIBRA.

THAT IS, THAT IS NOT INCLUDED IN OUR RECOMMENDED ORDER.

IT IS A 60 DAY ORDER TO OBTAIN AND FINALIZE ALL PERMITS, CORRECT.

ALL CITED VIOLATIONS BY COMPLETING ALL REPAIRS TO THE RESIDENTIAL AND ACCESSORY STRUCTURES.

AND THEY REQUEST AN INSPECTION FROM AUSTIN CODE TO VERIFY COMPLIANCE.

AND THEN ON THE 61ST DATE WOULD BE A THOUSAND DOLLARS PER WEEK.

THAT'S THE RECOMMENDED ORDER.

SO, BUT IT INCLUDES ALL THE ITEMS THAT, AND SO WE'RE TALKING ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT THAT SHOULD GO THE 90 DAYS.

IS THAT THE DIFFERENCE? THAT IS CORRECT.

YES.

OKAY.

ARE WE STILL WAITING FOR A SECOND? WAIT A SECOND.

I WILL BE THE CHECKUP.

OKAY.

OKAY.

UM, DO WE HAVE ANY FURTHER QUESTIONS OR DISCUSSION AMONG THE COMMISSIONERS? OH, GOD.

JUST KIND OF WANT TO HOPE THAT THEY WILL, UH, THE OWNERS OR THE OWNER REPRESENTATIVE, PARTICULARLY THE OWNERS WOULD HAVE SOME KIND OF PLAN BY THAT 90TH DAY OR WHAT THEY'RE, WHAT THEY'RE INTENDING TO DO TO MAKE SURE EVERYTHING'S TAKEN CARE OF OF COURSE.

BUT, UM, I GUESS WHAT THEY WAS ASKING IS 120 DAYS AND NO DEFINITE TIMELINE AS TO AN, A PLAN TO TAKE CARE OF, LOTS OF SUGGEST THAT THEY NEED ANOTHER 30 DAYS BEYOND THE 90, THAT THEY COME BACK WITH SOME EVIDENCE THAT SHOWS THAT THEY'RE MAKING PROGRESS.

WE EXPECT THAT THIS IS BRANDON CARR, ASSISTANT CITY ATTORNEY.

UM, MY QUESTION IS, ARE YOU ASKING THE PERSON, SO THIS QUARTER WOULD BE AFTER 90 DAYS, CIVIL PENALTIES AND WOULD START, ARE YOU ASKING TO COME BACK AS A PART OF YOUR ORDER AFTER 90 DAYS? OR ARE YOU SAYING THAT THEY CAN, IF THEY WANT TO COME BACK AND REQUEST TO BE PUT ON A FUTURE AGENDA, BECAUSE THERE'S A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN, UM, BETWEEN THOSE TWO THINGS, UH, THAT ADDRESSED TO ME? UH, YES.

COMMISSIONER GREEN.

ARE YOU, ARE YOU ASKING THAT THEY BE REQUIRED TO COME BACK ON THE NINTH DAY AND WE'D GO AHEAD AND SET IT, OR

[00:50:01]

ARE YOU SAYING THAT THEY CAN COME BACK ON THE 90TH DAY, MAKING CLEAR THAT PENALTIES WILL START AFTER 90 DAYS, UNLESS YOU ALL DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT? I WOULD SAY THEY TEND TO COME BACK.

I NEVER KNOW IF THEY WOULD BE ABLE TO KNOCK IT OUT.

DOES THAT SEEM APPROPRIATE? A BARRISTER? UM, IT DOES.

THEY, THEY HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY.

YOU CAN DO THAT.

UM, BUT ALSO, I JUST WANT TO BE CLEAR THAT I THINK WE'RE GOING TO BE SEPTEMBER, OCTOBER, NOVEMBER.

SO IT WON'T BE QUITE 90 DAYS BECAUSE THAT'S BE THANKSGIVING.

SO I THINK THEY DO, UM, DECEMBER MEETING CORRECT THE TIME.

SO THEY WOULD HAVE TO COME BACK, I GUESS, IN, UH, OCTOBER.

UH, SO THEY'D HAVE TO COME BACK BEFORE THE 90 DAYS.

THEY CAN'T COME BACK AFTER THE NIGHT THEY COULD, BUT AT THAT POINT, THE PENALTIES WOULD BE ACCRUING.

UH, LET'S SEE.

I'D RATHER, IF THIS WAS A, MY SHOES, I'D RATHER COME BACK BEFORE THE PENALTIES WERE OCCURRING.

SO LET'S GO OCTOBER.

AND SINCE WE CAN'T REALLY ASK THEM DIRECTLY, BUT LET'S GO AHEAD AND SAY OCTOBER AND LET THE COMEBACK PRESENT WHAT THEY'VE GOT.

SEE IF THERE'S ANY, UM, TYPE OF RENT THAT'S WHAT'S ON THE PROPOSED ORDER.

60 DAYS, WE DON'T HAVE A MEETING IN NOVEMBER BECAUSE OF THANKSGIVING THAT'S ACCURATE, CORRECT? CORRECT.

RIGHT.

SO WE COULD ASK THEM TO COME BACK IN 60 DAYS TO SHOW US THAT THEY'RE MAKING PROGRESS.

WE WANT TO TELL THEM, RIGHT.

YOU ALSO HAVE THE OPTION OF, UM, CONTINUING THIS CASE FOR 60 DAYS AND ASKING FOR THOSE PLANS THAT YOU NEED IN ORDER TO MAKE A DECISION.

OKAY.

SO LET ME, LET ME FOLLOW THAT RABBIT TRAIL REAL QUICK.

SO I COME BACK IN OCTOBER, NOTHING'S HAPPENING NOBODY'S THEY HAVEN'T DONE ANYTHING.

WE HAVE TO WAIT ANOTHER 60 DAYS.

IF WE SAY, OKAY, WE'VE HAD IT, UM, WE'RE GOING TO IMPLEMENT A STANCE OR A RECOMMENDATION.

IT WOULD HAVE ANOTHER 60 DAYS FROM OCTOBER.

SO THAT WOULD TAKE US INTO FEBRUARY SO THAT BY THE END OF THE YEAR.

SO IF YOU GAVE, IF YOU GAVE THEM, IF YOU COULD CONTINUE WITH THIS CASE FOR 60 DAYS, THEN THEY CAN MAKE AN ORDER.

AT THAT POINT YOU COULD DO AS LITTLE AS 30 DAYS, UM, TO, TO FINISH OUT.

AND THEN THAT WOULD BE A TOTAL OF 90 DAYS.

OR YOU COULD DO A TOTAL UP TO 90 DAYS RIGHT NOW, UNLESS YOU FIND THAT THEY'VE CREATED A WORK PLAN AND SHOW THAT THE WORK CANNOT BE COMPLETED WITHIN 90 DAYS, THEN STATE LAW ALLOWS YOU TO GO PAST THAT.

OKAY.

SO IF WE GO OUT 60 DAYS AND THEY MAKE A LOT OF PROGRESS AND THEY SAY, WE NEED ANOTHER 60, WHICH IS WHAT THEY'RE ASKING FOR, WE COULD DO THAT KNOCKED OUT YOU THEORETICALLY, THEORETICALLY COULD GENERALLY YOU DON'T TAKE CASES AGAIN A SECOND TIME.

IT'S NOT YOUR GENERAL POLICY, BUT THERE'S NOT ANYTHING NECESSARILY THAT PROHIBITS YOU FROM DOING THAT.

NO, NO.

I WANT TO KIND OF, I DON'T WANT TO BE SETTING NEW PRECEDENTS THAT WERE DONE BEFORE, SO WE, WE COULD CONTINUE THE CASE AND THEN ACCEPT STAFF'S RECOMMENDATION AND NOT COVER.

THAT WOULD BE TYPICAL OF MORE OF WHAT WE DID WE'VE DONE IS THAT PACK YEAR.

THAT'S CORRECT.

IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR MORE INFORMATION FROM THE PROPERTY OWNER, YOUR RULES DO REQUIRE YOU TO TRY AND ASK THEM SPECIFIC FOR TELLS US SPECIFICALLY WHAT YOU WANT, EMPTY THE HAND OR NOT KNOWING WHAT THEY NEED.

SO THEN LET ME SUGGEST THAT MODIFY MY, UH, UH, UH, THE RECOMMENDATION HERE THAT, YEAH, YOU'RE WANTING TO AMEND YOUR ORDER, HER AMEND YOUR MOTION OR ORDER THAT THEY COME BACK WITH DEMONSTRATION, THAT THEY'VE APPLIED TO PERMITS AND THEY'VE SCHEDULED INSPECTIONS, OR THEY HAVE THE PAPERWORK, OR THEY HAVE THE, A CONTRACT TO GET THEM TO THE POINT WHERE THEY CAN REQUEST A INSPECTION.

SO, SO ARE YOU PROPOSING, SORRY, COMMISSIONER GREEN.

SO YOU, SO YOU'RE WANTING TO AMEND YOUR MOTION SO THAT WE CONTINUE THE CASE PERSIST FOR 60 DAYS.

YEAH.

UH, 60 DAYS WITH, UH, WITH THE REQUIREMENT FOR THE OWNERS AND THEIR REPRESENTATIVES TO COME BACK WITH PROOF THAT THEY ARE MOVING FORWARD TO COMPLETE THIS PROJECT.

DOES ANYBODY ELSE HAVE ANY ADVISORS SUGGESTED WHERE I MIGHT, THAT THEY HAVE COME BACK PERMITS OR SHOWS THEY HAD INSPECTIONS DONE PERMITS AND INSPECTIONS ALREADY.

[00:55:01]

I WANT TO SHOW THAT THEY'VE HIT SOME MILESTONES AND IF THEY HAVE, AND THEY'RE MAKING GOOD PROGRESS THAT, UH, YOU KNOW, WE CAN GIVE ANOTHER 30 TO 60 DAYS AT THAT POINT.

AND IF THEY'VE DONE NOTHING AND WE'RE JUST TREADING WATER THAT WE GO FORWARD WITH A STAFF'S RECOMMENDATIONS FOR A, WAS IT A THOUSAND DOLLARS A WEEK? YEAH.

I'M JUST THINKING, BECAUSE THEY SAY THEY'VE ALREADY DONE THAT ELECTRICAL WORK.

THAT WOULD BE AN OBVIOUS THING TO ASK THEM TO, UH, GET THE PERMITS AND HAVE IT INSPECTED.

AND THAT WOULD BE NO THAT'S THAT SOUNDS LIKE A GREAT IDEA.

SO, SO MY THOUGHTS ARE, THEY'VE ALREADY KNOWN ABOUT THESE VIOLATIONS FOR QUITE SOME TIME AND NOT A WHOLE LOT HAS HAPPENED.

AND I THINK THAT, I THINK WE NEED A MOTIVATOR SUCH AS PENALTIES KICKING IN AFTER 90 DAYS TO MAKE THIS THREAT REAL.

I TAKE IT VERY SERIOUSLY THAT PEOPLE WERE RENTING OUT ROOMS WITHOUT ANY OF THE ENTITY GRAPHS.

THAT'S NOT COOL.

THAT'S NOT ONE OF THE VIOLATIONS THEY NEED TO CORRECT SO LONG AS THEY DON'T RENT OUT THOSE ROOMS FOR ANYONE TO ACTUALLY SLEEP IN IT.

UM, BUT THEY, I THINK THE OTHER VIOLATIONS COULD BE CORRECTED FAIRLY QUICKLY.

AND IN 90 DAYS THEY PROBABLY WILL HAVE A GOOD IDEA OF HOW THEY WANT TO PROCEED WITH MAKING THIS HABITABLE HABITABLE SPACE.

THOSE ARE MY THOUGHTS.

YEAH.

COMMISSIONER FRYBERGER.

I AGREE WITH THOSE SENTIMENTS.

I MEAN, THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON, SORRY.

THIS WAS JEFF WCA.

MANGRUM THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON SINCE FEBRUARY TIMEFRAME.

UM, WE'RE MORE THAN HALFWAY THROUGH THE YEAR.

UM, YOU KNOW, I WOULD BE INCLINED TO GO AHEAD AND ENTER AN ORDER THAT PENALTIES ARE GONNA RUN FROM AND NOT CONTINUE THE HEARING, UM, IN ORDER TO SPUR SOME ACTION ON THIS AND WHETHER IT'S 60 DAYS OR 75 OR 90, I DO THINK IT WOULD BE PREFERABLE TO PUT AN ORDER IN PLACE SO THAT, UM, SOME ACTION, UH, GETS SET IN MOTION.

UM, I, UM, I KNOW YOU'RE AWARE OF THIS, BUT THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY IS NOT AT A STANDSTILL.

I WORK WITH ARCHITECTS AND ENGINEERS AND CONTRACTORS, UM, EVERY DAY AND, YOU KNOW, THINGS ARE GOING FORWARD.

SO I DON'T REALLY BELIEVE THERE'S ANY REASON THAT THE OWNERS SHOULDN'T BE ABLE TO GET THIS WORK ACCOMPLISHED.

THANK YOU.

SO WE HAVE, WE HAD THE ORIGINAL MOTION THAT WAS SECONDED.

WE HAVE AN AMENDED MOTION.

UM, MR. CARR, I'M NOT SURE IF WE NEED, WHERE DO WE PROCEED FROM HERE, BUT WITH THE AMENDED, I DON'T THINK THERE WAS A SECOND.

SO I THINK WE'RE STILL ON THE ORIGINAL.

CAN YOU RESTATE THAT AMENDED MOTION? YEAH.

AMENDMENT WAS FOR, UM, AGAIN, THIS IS BRANDON CARR, ASSISTANT CITY ATTORNEY.

THE AMENDMENT WAS A 60 DAY CONTINUANCE WITH INSPECTIONS OR PERMITS.

THE ORIGINAL MOTION, I BELIEVE WAS, UM, STAFF'S ORDER OF 90 DAYS A WORK REPAIR.

THAT'S CORRECT.

I'D LIKE TO POSE THE AMENDED VERSION THAT JESSICA DOES THAT FOLLOW WITH THE PHONE BACK.

UH, DID YOU WANT TO ALSO ADDRESS, UH, UM, JUST ADDRESSING, UH, THE PENALTIES IN PLACE AS WELL? NOT TRYING TO DELAY THINGS, FOLKS.

I JUST WANT, I'M TRYING TO GET THE, UH, WELL, THE, THE ORIGINAL MOTION, I BELIEVE DID INCLUDE THE PENALTIES, CORRECT.

AND $1,000 A WEEK.

YES.

YES.

THE ORIGINAL PENALTY WAS AS STAFF.

IT JUST MODIFYING THE TIMEFRAME TO 90 DAYS.

CORRECT.

SO I BELIEVE, UNLESS WE GET A SECOND ON THE AMENDED MOTION, WE SHOULD PROBABLY JUST GO AHEAD AND CALL THE QUESTION FOR THE ORIGINAL MOTION.

I'LL SECOND I CAN.

AM I ALLOWED? I'M SORRY, WHO IS, THIS IS JOHN GRAY.

WILL YOU, SO COMMISSIONER GREEN, YOU DID THE ORIGINAL MOTION AND YOU DID THE AMENDED MOTION.

ISN'T THAT CORRECT? I'M SORRY.

I THOUGHT JESSICA MADE THE AMENDED MOTION.

NO,

[01:00:01]

I'M LOSING TRACK.

I'M SORRY.

I BELIEVE THEY MADE THE AMENDED MOTION.

SO LESS THAN DIFFERENT COMMISSIONER SECONDS THAT THEN YOU'D HAVE TO GO BACK TO THE ORIGINAL MOTION.

OKAY.

IS IT JUST EASIER TO WITHDRAW YOUR ORIGINAL ONE? AND THEN WE CAN START WITH THE OTHER ONE.

OKAY.

I'LL WITHDRAW MY ORIGINAL MOTION.

SO I'LL SECOND.

THE ONE THAT, UH, COMMISSIONER JESSICA MANGRUM PROPOSED, UH, COMMISSIONER MANGRUM DID NOT PROPOSE ANYTHING.

CAUSE I CAN TELL WHAT'S ON THAT TABLE RIGHT NOW.

YEAH.

SO THE AMENDED MOTION THAT HAS NOT BEEN SECONDED, I BELIEVE WAS RATHER THAN EXTENDING THE TIMEFRAME OF THAT RECOMMENDED ORDER.

IT WAS TO CONTINUE THE CASE FOR 60 DAYS.

AND THEN WHEN THE PROPERTY REPRESENTATIVE COMES BACK, THEY WOULD NEED TO HAVE A HIGHER LEVEL OF DOCUMENTATION TO SHOW THAT PROGRESS HAS BEEN MADE.

IS THAT CORRECT? COMMISSIONER GREEN.

SO WE NEED A SECOND AND THEN A VOTE.

IF WE'RE GOING TO MOVE FORWARD, IF WE'RE GOING TO MOVE FORWARD WITH THE AMENDED MOTION, THEN YES, WE WOULD NEED A SECOND.

OKAY.

SO WE'RE AT 60 DAYS, NOT 90 DAYS NOW.

WE'RE THE AMENDED MOTION IS CONTINUING THE CASE, WHICH MEANS WE'RE NOT TAKING ANY ACTION TONIGHT.

ACTION TONIGHT.

AND EVERYTHING HAS TO BE NOTIFIED.

PEOPLE HAVE TO COME BACK IN 60 DAYS AND THEY HAVE TO SHOW DOCUMENTATION THAT THEY PAID, CORRECT.

RECONSIDER THE MEETING DOCUMENTATION MEETINGS, SOME KIND OF PLAN A THAT THE OWNERS AND REPRESENTATIVES NEEDED FOR THE 60TH DAY.

CORRECT? THAT IS CORRECT.

IF THEY, IF WE DECIDE TO CON THE MOTION WAS TO CONTINUE THE CASE AND WHEN THEY COME BACK, THEY WOULD NEED TO PROVIDE DOCUMENTATION THAT THEY'VE ATTAINED, PERMITS, AND THAT WORK HAS BEEN, OR PROGRESS HAS BEEN MADE.

OKAY.

I'LL SECOND THAT, OKAY.

ANY MORE DISCUSSION? OKAY.

UM, SO THE QUESTION IS THE MOTION IS TO CONTINUE THE CASE FOR 60 DAYS, OR LET ME BE MORE SPECIFIC.

IT WOULD BE CONTINUING THE CASE UNTIL THE OCTOBER MEETING OF THE BUILDING AND STANDARDS COMMISSION.

AND AT THAT TIME, THE PROPERTY OWNER WOULD NEED TO RETURN WITH DOCUMENTATION, INCLUDING PERMITS FOR THE WORK TO CORRECT THE VIOLATIONS AND PROGRESS MADE AND ANY REMAINING WORK, THEY WOULD NEED TO HAVE A CLEAR SCHEDULE AND A DOCUMENTATION OF WHAT THE PROPOSED COST WOULD BE AN ESTIMATE ALL IN FAVOR, SAY AYE.

AYE, AYE.

AYE.

OPPOSED? SAY AYE.

OKAY.

I'M GOING TO DO YES.

OKAY.

UM, MYSELF, I AM OPPOSED, UM, COMMISSIONER ABILA COMMISSIONER MANGRUM OPPOSED COMMISSIONER SHEDDEN OPPOSE COMMISSIONER GREEN.

I'M GOING TO ASSUME HE WAS FOR COMMISSIONERS THOUGH.

STUD I VOTED, YES.

OKAY.

THAT WAS COMMISSIONER GREEN OR COMMISSIONER,

[01:05:01]

SO SAD.

OKAY.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

COMMISSIONER BRUCE.

DANIEL.

OKAY.

COMMISSIONER FERERA COMMISSIONER MILLER, SORRY.

COMMISSIONER MILLER.

PROPOSED COMMISSIONER THOMPSON FAR.

OH, I WASN'T KEEPING TRACK OF THE MATH.

I'M COUNTING.

NOW.

THIS IS JAMES CANDELA.

I'M COUNTING FIVE AGAINST.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

I WAS, YEAH, I WAS JUST COMING UP WITH FIVE AND I WAS ABOUT TO DOUBLE CHECK.

SO I'LL, I'LL TAKE THAT.

OKAY.

THE MOTION DID NOT PASS A WOULD COMMISSIONERS ANY COMMISSIONERS LIKE TO ENTERTAIN ANOTHER MOTION SHOULD HAVE 11 COMMISSIONERS MAKE A MOTION THAT WE ADOPT THE STAFF RECOMMENDED, UM, ORDER AND THE FINDINGS OF FACT AND CONCLUSIONS OF LAW CONTAINED IN THAT REQUIRING THAT THE OWNER OBTAIN WITHIN 60 DAYS, THE PERMITS AND CORRECT THEM, CITED VIOLATIONS AND INSPECTIONS, ET CETERA.

AND, UM, THAT THE PENALTIES WILL ACCRUE PER THE ORDER AS STATED $1,000 PER WEEK.

I'M SORRY.

SO THERE WAS A SECOND FROM WHOM WORKING.

OKAY.

AND TO BE CLEAR, THIS IS BASICALLY TO ADAPT STAFF'S RECOMMENDED, RECOMMENDED ORDER AS CORRECT.

OKAY.

I'M GOING TO CALL THE QUESTION ALL IN FAVOR, SAY AYE.

AYE.

ANY OPPOSED? OKAY.

THE MOTION IS UNANIMOUSLY PASSIVE.

OKAY.

SO A COPY OF THIS ORDER WILL BE MAILED OUT TO THE PROPERTY OWNER.

AND UM, IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS YOU CAN GET WITH CITY STAFF AT THIS TIME.

AND I BELIEVE
