Hearings on four different cases took place in Chipley on Thursday. Three of them are related to problems, and the fourth – due to the fact that the construction was carried out without a permit or building order. Cases and their results:
- The property on Church Avenue, owned by Annie Holmes, was found to be violating the code due to overgrowth and debris. Holmes will have 30 days to bring the property into line. Failure to do so will result in a $ 50-a-day fine until the requirement is met.
- It was found that the property on South Railroad Avenue, owned by Jeremy and Carly Peters, violates the code due to overgrowth, a significant reduction in the value of the property and the house in disrepair caused by the fire. Peter will have 30 days to bring the property in line, or a fine of $ 75 a day will be charged before compliance.
- The property on Jackson Avenue – commonly known as the old Dairy Dip property – owned by COALT Enterprises James Coddle, has been found to violate the code due to the fact that the design is unsafe and obstructs the public. Cadle will be 30 to bring the property in line. Failure to do so will result in a $ 100-a-day fine until the property is compliant with the code.
- Property on Main Street – Cancun’s Mexican Grill – owned by Jason Reyes will have 60 days to obtain permits and building orders for construction work being done for the facility. A suspension order is currently in force at the site. The issue will be considered if the requirements are not met.
The next hearing on the application of the code is tentatively scheduled for 10 a.m. on July 14.
