Submitted For: Peggy Arraiz

SUBJECT:
Request to reduce two code enforcement fines in the amount of $110,580.00 against 1815 S. 30th Street previously owned by Custodio & Monica Pereira, Jr., 1815 S 30th Street, Ft. Pierce, FL 34947 and currently owned by David Buryanek, 1811 S. 30th Street, Ft. Pierce, FL 34948 to $2,066.60 payable in 10 months. 
SUMMARY:
BACKGROUND:
  1. Case #13-1046 against Custodio Pereira Jr. in 2013 for failure to secure a vacant building resulted in a lien in the amount of $47,040.00.
  2. Case #14-0324 against Custodio Pereira Jr. in 2014 for failure to remove a fallen tree resulted in a lien in the amount of $63,540.00.
  3. After Mr. Buryanek purchased the property, he complied all violations. He is requesting that the fines in the amount of $110,580.00 be waived.
RECOMMENDATION:
The Special Magistrate heard Mr. Buryanek's request and recommends that the City Commission reduce the combined liens to $2,066.60 payable in 10 months.

  3. Mr. Buryanek has also agreed to pay $433.40 to reimburse the City for a lot clearing lien also placed against prior owner.
  4. Total of reduced lien amount plus the lot clearing is $2500.00 payable in 10 months.
**Mr. Buryanek is requesting the City Commission to reconsider the Special Magistrate's recommendation. Please see appeal letter attached.
