Subject: NOTICE OF VIOLATION Case# 11978 (4801 3rd Street)
On January 8, 2012 you placed a Notice of Violation for General Advertising Sign on 4801 3rd Street. This NOV is for (2) two large advertising signs placed on blighted property for Diane Wesley Smith of Bayview Real Estate. Per the NOV the owner of the property Mr. Curlee Bishop Sr. had 30 days from the date post-marked on the notice to: 1) apply for a building permit to remove the signs; or 2) request reconsideration of the NOV. Failure to act would result in $100.00 per day per sign. The 30 days from the date post-marked has now expired. Can you let me know if Mr. Curlee Bishop has 1) applied for a building permit to remove the signs; or 2) request reconsideration of the NOV? Also, per the NOV if Mr. Curlee Bishop applies for reconsideration of the NOV it would require $3,400.00 for an initial hearing.
The signs posted on this blighted property have and continue to be public eyesore. I’m requesting that if Mr. Curlee Bishop has not 1) applied for a building permit to remove the signs; or 2) request reconsideration of the NOV and paid the $3,400.00 for an initial hearing that this NOV be immediately referred to Nicholas Colla at the City Attorney’s office for failure to act and penalties of $100.00 per day per sign be accessed against the property owner. Thanks.
