Seminole Code Enforcement Orders Compliance, Fines Loom for Violators

In a meeting held on February 22, 2024, the Seminole County Code Enforcement Board addressed several code violations across the county, imposing compliance orders and fines on property owners failing to uphold county standards. The most pressing cases involved the accumulation of fines due to prolonged non-compliance, the imposition of liens on properties, and concerns raised by property owners regarding their ability to present defenses.

The meeting kicked off with a case involving uncultivated vegetation at a property on Plymouth Avenue, Altamonte Springs. The owner, Nahan Nayan, was ordered to rectify the violation by March 8, 2024, or face a $50 daily fine. Nayan, represented by a friend who provided translation from Vietnamese, cited a car accident and difficulty finding reliable service as reasons for the delay in addressing the issue.

Another discussion centered around a Geneva property where the owner contested the occupancy of a camper, leading to a debate and subsequent vote by the board to impose a lien on the property. Similarly, a Sanford property owner faced a lien despite concerns about not receiving an original hearing notice and frustration over the inability to present defenses.

The board also issued an order against a property on Lyon Street, found in violation for storing unpermitted personal property, including a vehicle and a boat, on a vacant lot. Compliance was demanded by March 8, 2024, with a stipulated fine of $100 per day for non-compliance. Two cases concerning Vermont LLC on Lincoln Street in Sanford were also discussed, with violations related to rubbish and uncultivated vegetation. Compliance for both was required by the same March deadline or fines would ensue.

A property on Holly Hawk Drive was cited for a dilapidated fence, with the owner, Howard C. Clinton, advised to correct the violation by a specific date to avoid potential fines. Discussions probed the progress of property owners in addressing violations and the consequences of non-compliance.

Additionally, a property with a fence in need of repair was given until March 8th, 2024, to rectify the issue, with a daily fine of $50 set as a penalty for non-compliance. Another case featured a property with stagnant water violations, where the owner was fined $250 per day if the issue persisted past the compliance date. Various reasons, including health concerns and family matters, were cited for the non-compliance.
