Mr. Lonzell Banks, Code Compliance Official, provided the commission with an update from the property owner, Crown Enterprises Inc. In the previous hearing, the property needed to be graded and mowed, but due to inclement weather, the work is not finished. At this point, the grading has been completed where the structure was located; however, the property still needs to be mowed. Staff is recommending the case be closed out and turned over to Code Compliance for the overgrown weed violation. Staff is also requesting that the commission apply all fees associated with this case to the final order.

 

Mr. Christiansen asked if the total for all fees is $889.75.

 

Mr. Banks responded in the affirmative.

 

Mr. Christiansen asked if the commission had any other questions for the city.

 

There were none.

 

Mr. Christiansen asked Steve Weathered, City Attorney, since the city has recommended the case be turned back over to Code Compliance, should the commission move forward with a final order.

 

Mr. Weathered responded in the affirmative; the commission has an Order & Notice in their files for findings and completion to the Building and Standards Commission which he could go through with it with the board.

 

Mr. Weathered read the order.

 

On page 2, the only change that Mr. Weathered noted was that Frank LeBlanc was not present.

 

Mr. Weathered stated for page 3, that staff had reported that the structure has been demolished and debris removal has been completed; the grading and back fill was completed.  All that is now required is the mowing of the property. The commission can add it to III subsection C. On subsection D, the commission could make their determination which starts with ?owner has substantially complied.?

 

Section C

Item was marked. All work has been completed other than mowing of the property.

 

Section D

Item 1 was marked N/A.

 

Item 2 was marked ?owner has substantially complied.?

 

Item 3 was marked N/A.

 

Item 4 was marked N/A.

 

Item 5 was marked. See subsection C above.

 

Mr. Weathered continued to section IV Orders. He stated that the commission can mark the section ?see prior orders? by reference.

 

Item 1 was marked ?See Prior Orders which are incorporated by reference unless otherwise noted below. All other items in this section were marked N/A.

 

Mr. Weathered then continued to section V Special Additional Findings for Demolition if Applicable was completed and marked this section not applicable or demolish completed. If the commission would like to turn the case over to Code Compliance, there is a provision on the last page in paragraph 7 to state that the case is being closed without Prejudice for Code Enforcement. He also stated that the date on the Order needed to be corrected.

 

Additional Findings

Item 1

Item was not marked.

 

Item 2

Item was marked N/A.

 

Item 3

Item was marked N/A.

 

Item 4

Item was marked N/A.

 

Ms. Scully asked Mr. Weathered where they would add fees on the order. The order has a box for the $300 Administrative fees but not for the remainder.

 

Mr. Weathered responded that the fees could be added under Item 5 in Additional Findings, ?itemized list of the administrative costs and civil penalties incurred,? since there are no civil penalties fees being assessed at this time. The commission could make a finding based upon Mr. Banks? statement for those itemized expenses and attach them to the order.

 

Ms. Scully asked if the commission could mark that item, cross out the ?civil penalties? and state the cost that was incurred of $889.75.

 

Mr. Weathered responded in the affirmative. Since at this point, there haven?t been any civil penalties.

 

Ms. Scully asked if they would then state cost incurred and if it would be attached here too.

 

Mr. Weathered responded in the affirmative.

 

Ms. Scully asked if the order would then become a lien.

 

Mr. Weathered responded in the affirmative.

 

Item 5

Item was marked. ?and civil penalties? was marked through and a statement at the end of the item was added to be in substitute to those words ?in the amount of $889.75.?

 

Mr. Weathered asked the commission if anyone had any additional questions.

 

Ms. Scully asked for the date of the hearing.

 

Ms. Beasley responded 3rd of April.

 

Ms. Scully asked if the date on the 8th page could be corrected from the 4rd to the 3rd.

 

The date was corrected.

 

Mr. Christiansen asked the commission if anyone had any other questions on this order.

 

There were none.

 

Mr. Christiansen asked for a motion.

 

Ms. Scully made a motion to accept the final order and turn the mowing violation over to the city, attaching the administrative fees as item number five.

 

Mr. Hendershot seconded the motion.

 

Mr. Christiansen stated that if there were no further discussion, he would ask for a vote.

The motion passed unanimously with a vote of 5-0-0.

Mr. Christiansen will sign the order, and since there is no representative for the property owner, it will be provided to them at a later time.

 

B.     Hold a public compliance hearing with possible action on BASC14-01 (220 Englewood Dr), to determine whether a building or structure is a dangerous building, to show cause why the ordered action has not been completed and/or why civil penalties should not be assessed, and issue any order(s) determined necessary to address such conditions per 22-331 et. seq. of the League City Code of Ordinances on property located at 220 Englewood Drive, League City, Texas 77573, legally described as lot twenty-three, block six of the Pecan Forest Subdivision, Section 2, a subdivision in Galveston County, Texas, according to the map thereof recorded in Volume 10, Page 53 in the Office of the County Clerk of Galveston County, Texas.

Mr. Lonzell Banks, Code Compliance Official, gave the commission an update on the case. He stated since the fire that took place at this location in February 2007, the property owner has demonstrated no desire to respond or show interest in making necessary repairs that would bring the structure into compliance prior to the recent orders that has been issued by the board. In the previous hearing, city staff established that the structure has more than 50% damage that was done to the structure; the value of the structure had been reduced by the Galveston County Appraisal District by 49%. With the cost estimate, which was provided by a licensed contractor, to repair the structure at $58,700, it is staff?s recommendation that the structure is to be demolished in order to protect the welfare, health and safety of the neighboring residents in the community.

 

Mr. Christiansen asked Mr. Banks if the property owner(s) provided staff with a status compliance report three days prior to this hearing per the order in the previous meeting.

Mr. Banks responded in the affirmative. The property owner provided an estimate report for the commission?s review, and it was included in the meeting packets.

Ms. Scully asked staff what the replacement value for the structure is according to the Galveston Appraisal District.

Mr. Banks responded that the structure had not had an assessment of the value of the house since the fire took place.  He stated that prior to the fire; the structure was valued at $95,640. He stated that the Galveston Appraisal District has done a re-assessment of the property due to the damage that exists with the property, which is $48,720 and reduced it to 49%. He believed the code ordinance has stipulations within it that the property would have to meet for an order of repair to be issued. 

Mr. Christiansen asked the commission if they had any additional questions for the city.

There were none.

Mr. Christiansen asked for the property owner or representative to come up to address the commission.

Mr. Mark Stuart Robbins, who lives at 1018 Sunset Circle in League City Texas, and Candy Parrish, who lives at 305 Wakefield Drive in League City Texas, stepped up to address the board.

Ms. Beasley asked the property owner if the court order to release the check from the insurance company in Mr. Robbins? name came through.

Ms. Parrish responded that the court order was mailed to the Dallas office for the insurance by their attorney. She also had two checks, which were recently mailed to them, to demonstrate to the commission that the insurance company has again written in the name of the deceased owner.

Ms. Beasley asked if the court order will assist in replacing those checks with ones that are written to Mr. Robbins.

Ms. Parrish responded in the affirmative. The court order states that the insurance company, State Farm, is to reissue checks in Mr. Robbins? name so that repairs can be initiated.

Ms. Beasley asked if the insurance checks are valued in excess of $38,000 for the repairs.

Ms. Parrish responded in the affirmative.

Ms. Beasley stated that the property owner had showed the commission two checks postmarked March 24, 2014, made to the previous owner for more than $81,000 and a second check for another amount.

Ms. Benoit asked, based on the documents she presented to the board, the time line for repairs to begin once the checks are received.

Ms. Parrish responded in the affirmative.

Ms. Beasley asked if the property owner was still having problems with the contractor(s) not wanting to enter the structure due to the ?DO NOT ENTER? sign that was posted at the property by city staff. She asked if the property owner contacted the city to remove the sign.

Ms. Parrish responded that she was not sure who to contact regarding the removal of the sign.

Ms. Beasley stated that the property owner should contact the city.

Mr. Robbins responded that since they were unsure of who to contact, they decided to address their concerns with the commission so they could advise them how to proceed.

Ms. Beasley asked Mr. Weathered if there is an issue to remove the sign.

Mr. Weathered responded that if a permit is issued by the city, then the permit supersedes the sign.

Ms. Beasley stated that the property owners are having problems with contractors bidding on repairs due to the sign.

Mr. Robbins stated that the contactors have corrected their statement, and the contractors will give an estimate.  However, they will not consider signing a contract for work if the sign is still at the location.

Ms. Beasley stated that, according to the time line, repairs will take 12 weeks which will begin once the checks are issued to Mr. Robbins. The commission trusts the property owner?s attorney to FedEx the court order paperwork to the insurance company so they can begin to process it as quickly as possible.

Mr. Robbins responded that the court orders are going to the claim attorneys for the insurance company in Dallas. Once the legal paperwork is reviewed by the lawyers, it will be sent to the next department until finally the checks are processed.

The commission thanked the property owner(s) for the packet they provided to the board.

Ms. Beasley asked if the commission had any additional questions for the property owner.

There were none.

Someone else stepped up to address the commission regarding the case, but the board explained that the public hearing was closed and only the property owners were allowed to address the board?s questions.

Ms. Beasley asked the board if they should discuss how to proceed with the case prior to making a motion, or do they make a motion.

Mr. Christiansen responded that it would be easier to make a motion, and then the board can discuss the motion.

Ms. Beasley made a motion to remove the ?Do Not Enter? sign and require the property owner to attend July 10th hearing with an update to the board.

Ms. Benoit seconded the motion.

The board discussed the motion.

Ms. Benoit had only one concern with the motion regarding allowing that much time to pass.

Mr. Christiansen asked Mr. Weathered if there are any issues with allowing 90 days and what would happen if the property owner cannot meet that deadline.

Mr. Weathered responded that the property owner has provided the board with a time and scope report and the board can allow them 90 days.

Mr. Christiansen asked if the board wanted a monthly report from the property owner.

Ms. Beasley responded that due to there being a third party involved with this case, the commission should request from the property owner a status report stating that they have received checks from the insurance company or a response from the property owner?s attorney explaining why it was delayed.

Ms. Scully agreed. The court order should be processed within the next three weeks, and checks should be processed shortly after that.

Ms. Parrish stated that the bank had contacted them on 27th and that a check was being mailed; the check was not received until the 18th of the following month.

Ms. Scully responded that, based on that statement; the check did take about 3 weeks. The property owner should have the check within the next 30 days.

Ms. Beasley agreed. She stated that the other part of her motion was to have the sign removed from the property. The exterior of the property appears to be of a normal house and it is secured, so there is no need for the sign.

The commission was in agreement.

The motion was amended by Ms. Beasley. The property owners are to attend the May 1st hearing with proof of the funds or an official notice from the insurance company of the status of the check;  the ?DO NOT ENTER? sign will be removed from the property.

Ms. Benoit seconded the amendment to the motion.

Mr. Christiansen asked the board if there was any further discussion.

Ms. Beasley stated, for the recorded, that the property owners should not wait until the next hearing to proceed with repairs if they receive funds prior to May 1st. If they have any questions, they should talk with the Building Department or city staff to address those questions or concerns.

Mr. Weathered asked the commission if they will be doing an order.

Mr. Christiansen responded that the board will proceed with the order and asked Mr. Weathered to help the commission to fill in the order.

Mr. Weathered read the order.

On page 2, the only change that Mr. Weathered noted was that Frank LeBlanc was not present and the names of those who appeared before the board.

Mr. Weathered continued onto page 3, section III Findings subsection C should be marked with ?Time and scope report was provided as ordered.?

On subsection D the section ?Owner has provided evidence of cost repairs and time table for performance of work and should be granted additional time to complete the ordered repairs? and ?evidence provided to the Commission of the costs of repairs and related value of the building justifies-repair? should be marked. 

On section IV Orders ?see prior orders? should be marked along with item 5. Since there is no date to being repairs as of yet, that section should be marked with TBD and repairs. Item 9 should be marked and the date for the next hearing is May 1, 2014. Item 10 should be marked with provide status report and proof of proceeds or letter or other correspondence that indicates status.

On section V Special Additional Findings for Demolition if Applicable should be marked not applicable.

Mr. Weathered finished reading the order and the final note is states that this is a Compliance Order. The date on this order is correct, so no other changes should be needed.

Mr. Christiansen asked if the board had any questions about the Order.

Ms. Beasley asked to go back to page 3 section III ?The Findings? subsection C, if this section was where the statement of ?time and scope report was provided.?

Mr. Weathered responded in the affirmative. It will also be shown in D.

Mr. Weathered stated on IV Orders subsection 5 the commission stated ?the sign was no longer required,? so it should be stated on there.

Ms. Beasley asked if the property owner will remove the sign or if the city needs to remove it.

Mr. Weathered responded that the commission may stipulate in the order to have either one remove it.

Mr. Banks responded that the city would remove the sign.

Ms. Scully asked to clarify on page 4 section IV subsection 4, since the city will remove the sign should it be added on that section.

Ms. Beasley agreed.

On page 4 Section IV Orders Item 4 was marked. Not required.

Ms. Scully asked is the city can remove the sign in a timely fashion.

Mr. Banks responded that the city will have it removed tomorrow.

Ms. Beasley stated that she added on Item 10 ?The DO NOT ENTER sign will be removed by April 4, 2014 by the city and is no longer required to be displayed.?

Ms. Beasley stated that if the check comes that the owner is to make copy of the check and deposit it to begin repairs. The owners are not to hold on to it until the next meeting. A copy will be sufficient. The commission does not want to hold the repairs up, so confirmation of proceeds is all they will need.

Mr. Christiansen stated that if there is no further discussion he would ask for a vote.

The order passed unanimously with a vote of 5-0-0.

Mr. Christiansen will sign the order and copies will be provided to the owner.
