Background Discussion
The property owner, EII Properties LLC, was cited for having an unsecured vacant property with missing doors and windows.  The property is not in foreclosure. The current owner has had since June 3, 2019 to secure the property. 

Upon the recommendation of staff, the Special Magistrate ordered that the BOCC be notified, which may make all reasonable repairs and charge the violator.

Staff is requesting approval to board up this property, as it is within the Commission's authority as outlined in Statutes and the Code of Ordinances.  

Violation:  Section 2-9-106(c) of the Code of County Ordinances

  1. Notice of Violation was issued on June 3, 2019.
  2. The Special Magistrate Hearing was held on August 28, 2019.  It was ordered that the BOCC be notified regarding the violation according to Section 162.09 of the Florida Statutes and Section 2-27-26(b) of the County Code of Ordinances.  
  3. The property is still not secured.
  4. Staff seeks approval to board up the property.
Note:  Staff has funding that is dedicated to securing unsafe structures.  Once a property is secured, the property owner will be sent a bill which, if unpaid, becomes a lien on the property until paid in full.
