…body

EXPLANATION:                     In 2021, Council approved Resolution No. R2021-50, adopting the policy for lien reductions by Wellington staff and the Council. The Resolution provided guidelines and delegated to staff the authority to compromise certain liens and also ratified lien reductions approved by staff or a Wellington Special Magistrate prior to January 1, 2020.  The Resolution was approved and the policy was effective on September 13, 2021.  On March 20, 2020, the Special Magistrate approved a lien reduction for cases NOH-9-2387 and NOH-11-2102.  This reduction occurred before the policy was effective and after the January date approving previous reductions and therefore requires approval by Council. Because the property owner has completely paid the amount as reduced by the Special Magistrate, the request is to approve the reduction as previously ordered.

 

The following is a brief summary of the two code compliance cases. A detail of the case history is provided as an attachment. A fine reduction request for cases NOH-09-2387 and NOH-11-2102 was received from the property owner, Ronald Okon, on February 27, 2020.
