Motion to reduce the fines for this case to $150.00 (as previously recommended by the Special Magistrate on September 27, 2017), subject to the following conditions:
Section 162.09, Florida Statutes
John Purdy, the current property owner, purchased the property on October 1, 2013, and is seeking a fine reduction as these fines were assessed against Betty Ann Waiters in 2001.
The property has changed ownership twice prior to the current owner acquiring the property. The property went through foreclosure (when Betty Waiters owned the property) and was sold on April 10, 2002, to the highest bidder at the foreclosure sale. That owner then sold the property to the current owner on October 1, 2013.
Violations: Junk vehicle (vehicle no tags and inoperable).
Special Magistrate Mitigation hearing was held on September 27, 2017. The Magistrate determined that justification exists to reduce the total fine amount and to forward the request to the Board of County Commissioners with a recommendation to reduce the fine amount which totals $1,500.00 to $150.00 plus $28.00 recording fees to settle the case. Staff recommends approval.
