The City of Chipley held code enforcement hearings on Thursday in four different cases. Three of those involve nuisance issues while the fourth was a result of construction being performed without permit or development orders. The cases and their findings are:
- Property on Church Avenue owned by Annie Holmes was found to be in violation of code due to excessive overgrowth and debris. Holmes will have 30 days to bring the property into compliance. Should compliance not take place a fine of $50 per day will incur until compliance is met.
- Property on South Railroad Avenue owned by Jeremie and Carlie Peters was found to be in violation of code due to excessive overgrowth, substantial diminution of property value and the home in disrepair caused by fire. The Peters will have 30 days to bring the property into compliance or a $75 a day fine will accrue until compliance is met.
- Property on Jackson Avenue – widely known as the old Dairy Dip property – owned by COALT Enterprises James Caudle is found to be in violation of code due to the structure being unsafe and a public nuisance. Caudle will have 30 to bring the property into compliance. Should compliance not be met, a $100 a day fine will accrue until the property is brought up to code.
- Property on Main Street – Cancun’s Mexican Grill – owned by Jason Reyes will have 60 days in which to acquire permits and development orders for construction efforts being made to the property. There is currently a stop work order in place at the location. The issue will come back for hearing should compliance not be met.
The next code enforcement hearings are tentatively set for 10 a.m. on July 14.
