- Violation: An existing screen room was enclosed without the required building permit and Certificate of Occupancy/Completion.
- Notice of Violation issued 6/8/2011.
- Special Magistrate Hearing 8/24/2011. Ordered to comply by 9/23/2011 for Section 512.1 or a $200.00 minimum fine and $100.00 per day fine would be imposed; and ordered to comply by 1/29/2012 for Section 513.1 or a $200.00 minimum fine and $100.00 per day fine would be imposed.

- Total fines: $224,840.00 plus $40.00 recording fee. Though the submitted application for relief did have the correct amount owed, the Special Magistrate agenda indicated $118,000.00, and the actual total is $224,840.00. Property owner offered $1,000.00 plus $40.00 recording fee.
- Special Magistrate Mitigation Hearing 5/27/2015. The Magistrate determined that justification exists to reduce the total fine amount and to forward the request to the Board of County Commission with a recommendation to reduce the fine amount to $1,000.00 plus $40.00 recording fee.
