THANK YOU, MR. WEINSTEIN.

I JUST HAVE TWO QUICK QUESTIONS FOR YOU.

THE FIRST ONE IS, IS REGARD TO NOTIFICATION.

UH, THE, THE OWNER WHEN THE NOTIFICATION WAS MADE IS, IS IT WAS MADE TO THE CURRENT OWNER, CALEB KLI, RIGHT? CORRECT.

ALRIGHT, THAT'S A NOTIFICATION QUESTION.

SECOND QUESTION IS POINT OF REMEDY.

WHEN CALEB KHALI WAS AWARE OF ALL OF THE REQUIREMENTS THAT AS FAR AS BEING PRESENTED HERE THIS EVENING, WHAT WAS HIS FEEDBACK OR POINT OF RESOLUTION OR PLAN OF RESOLUTION REMEDY TO, TO GET THIS PROPERTY UP TO CODE? I KNOW, I KNOW IN THE BRIEFING YOU INDICATED THAT HE WAS, HE FOUND ANOTHER CLOSING SOMEONE TO CLOSE HERE IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS.

BUT CURRENTLY, WHAT IS HIS REMEDY TO GET THIS PROPERTY UP, UP TO CODE? UH, IN OUR FIRST CONVERSATION WITH MR. MR. AHMED, HE INDICATED HE THOUGHT IT WOULD TAKE FOUR MONTHS, UH, TO COMPLETELY CLEAN THE PROPERTY AND MAKE ALL THE NECESSARY REPAIRS.

AT OUR SECOND CONVERSATION, HE THOUGHT IT WOULD TAKE CLOSER TO EIGHT MONTHS.

UH, HIS CREW HAD GONE THROUGH AND REMOVED ALL THE SHEET ROCK AND LECTURED THE INTERIOR OF THE PROPERTY AND HADN'T REALIZED THE EXTENT OF THE DAMAGE CAUSED BY THE, UH, THE ANIMALS FROM THE PREVIOUS OWNER.

SO HE STILL INTENDED AT THAT TIME TO MAKE ALL THE REPAIRS TO MAKE IT HABITABLE.

WE THOUGHT IT WOULD TAKE UP UP TO EIGHT MONTHS.

BUT GIVEN THE, THE, THE TIMELINE, DID HE, DID HE PROVIDE ANY FEEDBACK OF THE TIMELINE THAT THE, THAT THE CITY IS RECOMMENDING IT? WELL, THAT OUR FIRST INDICATION, OUR STAFF'S RECOMMENDATION IS FOUR MONTHS, UH, DURING OUR FIRST CONVERSATION.

THAT SEEMED TO BE HIS, HIS ORIGINAL PLAN.

OKAY.

BUT IN SPITE OF HIS EFFORTS TO SELL, IS, IS IT, DID HE EXPRESS, UH, THAT THE TIMELINE THAT THE CITY IS RECOMMENDING IS, IS IT, IS IT DOABLE OR NOT? I KNOW HE'S GONNA COME BEFORE US, BUT I JUST WANNA SECURE YOUR, HEAR YOUR VERSION OF, OF, OF THE STORE.

WITH MY LAST CONVERSATION WITH MR. ED, HE THOUGHT IT WOULD TAKE EIGHT MONTHS AFTER SEEING THE EXTENT OF THE DAMAGE.

SO HE WAS NO LONGER COMFORTABLE WITH, WITH FOUR MONTHS AS HE ORIGINALLY, ORIGINALLY SAID.

THANK YOU, SEAN.

I HAVE NO FURTHER QUESTIONS FOR SEAN.

ANY, IS THERE ANY QUESTIONS, ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS FROM MR. WEINSTEIN?

[00:25:01]

ANY QUESTIONS? SEEING NOT, SEAN, THANK YOU.

YOU MAY BE EXCUSED.

AT THIS TIME, WE HAVE A, A SPEAKER BY AN INDIVIDUAL BY THE NAME OF AUDRA WINFORD WINFORD.

PLEASE PROCEED TO TELL THE BOARD WHAT YOU WOULD LIKE FOR US TO HEAR THIS EVENING, PLEASE.

OKAY.

UH, WELL, MY MOTHER, KELLY CLAUSON, WHO WAS BACK HERE IN THE CHAIR IS, UH, THE FORMER OWNER, THE ORIGINAL OWNER OF THE HOUSE.

UH, WE SOLD THE HOUSE, THE HOUSE CLOSED ON FEBRUARY 27TH, SO I'M NOT QUITE SURE WHY WE ARE BROUGHT HERE TODAY UNDER THIS, UH, MY, I MOVED MY MOTHER OUT OF THE HOUSE.

SHE IS THE MOTHER OF FIVE KIDS.

I'M THE OLDEST.

I MOVED HER OUT ABOUT TWO YEARS AGO BECAUSE ONE OF MY BROTHERS HAS NEVER MOVED OUT AND BROUGHT IN A BUNCH OF DOGS.

HE WAS BREEDING DOGS AND I MOVED MY MOTHER OUT OF THERE.

THERE WAS TOO MANY DOGS.

IT WAS TOO DANGEROUS FOR HER.

HE LIVED THERE UNTIL THE HOUSE, UNTIL THE ANIMAL CONTROL TOOK THE ANIMALS.

THE HOUSE GOT A CONDEMNED NOTICE SHORTLY AFTER THAT, AND NO ONE'S BEEN THERE SINCE WE SOLD THE HOUSE.

SHE DIDN'T HAVE THE MONEY TO TAKE CARE OF IT, AND MY BROTHER WON'T .

SO THEN WE GOT THE SUMMONS TO BE HERE TODAY.

SO I'M NOT QUITE SURE HOW WE FACTOR IN TO WHAT'S GOING ON.

ARE WE GOING TO BE FINED OR, I MEAN, THAT'S MY QUESTION.

I'M NOT QUITE SURE.

WELL, THE QUESTION I HAVE FOR YOU IS, ARE YOU FAMILIAR WITH, WITH WHAT THE CITY IS RECOMMENDING IN REGARDS TO THIS PROPERTY? YES.

THAT'S WHY WE SOLD IT.

SHE DOESN'T HAVE THE MONEY TO, TO DO THAT.

OKAY.

SHE'S ON SOCIAL SECURITY.

THAT'S HER ONLY SOURCE OF INCOME.

ALRIGHT.

I HAVE A QUICK QUESTION FOR SEAN, PLEASE, SEAN.

DURING THIS, UH, THE VIOLATION NOTIFICATION, IT WAS, WAS IT SENT TO MS. RINER? WAS IT SENT TO HER ON, I BELIEVE IT WAS PROBABLY SENT TO MS. CLAWSON WAS, YEAH.

WHO, WHO LIVES IT WAS POSTED ON THE DOOR, RIGHT.

AND I GOT IT OFF THE DOOR AND I CALLED HIM AND GAVE HIM THE CRAIG.

I GAVE HER, GAVE HIM HER ADDRESS.

SHE'S LIVING WITH ME NOW.

AND THEN HE SENT EVERYTHING THERE.

WHAT HAPPENED IN THIS CASE IS IN OUR ATTEMPT TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERY, THIS IS COMMON WHEN WE DO OUR, OUR, UH, NOTICE FOR HEARING IS WE SEND AN ADMINISTRATIVE SUMMONS TO EVERYONE THAT'S A LIEN HOLDER, UH, AN OWNER, OR AT THE TIME, THE PROPERTY WAS GOING THROUGH A SALE AND IT HAD NOT YET BEEN INDICATED BY THE, BY THE APPRAISAL DISTRICT.

AND SO MS. CLASON WAS STILL INDICATED AS THE OWNER, EVEN THOUGH WE UNDERSTOOD THERE WAS A SALE PENDING.

THANK YOU FOR THAT CLARIFICATION.

I HAVE A QUESTION FOR KURT, OUR ATTORNEY.

NOW, IN REGARDS TO THESE, NOW IT HAS SINCE SWITCHED HANDS SINCE THE NOTIFICATION, AND WE HAVE THE CITY THAT'S MAKING THESE RECOMMENDATIONS AND THESE TIMELINE.

MY QUESTION IS, WHO IS ON THE HOOK FOR MAKING, WHO IS GONNA BE RESPONSIBLE FOR MAKING THESE, MAKING THESE CHANGES? THE, THE CURRENT OWNER.

THE CURRENT, THE ONE OWNER WILL, NOT VERY RESPONSIBLE, BUT THE CURRENT OWNER, YES.

OKAY.

BUT I, I THINK THE DEED WENT THROUGH, UH, JUST I GUESS MONTH BEFORE LAST, NOW, UH, AT THE END OF THE MONTH.

SO AT THE TIME WE WERE GATHERING THE INFORMATION OF WHO WERE THE OWNERS.

WE OUT OF AN ABUNDANCE CAUTION.

WE WILL NOTIFY MANY PEOPLE AS WE THINK MAY HAVE AN INTEREST BECAUSE WE WANNA MAKE SURE WE GET THE PEOPLE THROUGH.

BUT IF THE SALE WENT THROUGH AND THE DEED'S BEEN RECORDED, THE THE FORMER OWNERS WILL NOT BE ON THE HOOK.

THANK IT.

ONLY GOES TO, IT ATTACHES TO THE PROPERTY.

SO THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

I CAN SAY THAT ALSO DCA HAS UPDATED THEIR RECORDS SINCE THE TIME THAT MS. MS. CLASON RECEIVED A NOTICE.

OKAY.

I NOTICE THAT IN HERE.
