Re:    Lien Reduction Request - Case #14-0338 - 1116 S 7th Street
Submitted For: Peggy Arraiz

Request to reduce code enforcement fines in the amount of $16,190.00 against 1116 S 7th Street which was previously owned by Noel Nava, 1116 S 7th Street, Ft. Pierce, FL 34950 and currently owned by Carlson Family LLC, 2103 Sunrise Boulevard, Ft. Pierce, FL 34950 to $3,335.74.
BACKGROUND:  The Carlson Family LLC purchased this property through a tax deed sale. Excess funds from the tax sale was received by the City on May 22, 2015 in the amount of $6,875.24. There are  two code enforcement liens and a lot clearing lien on the property which are also being presented to the Commission tonight for reduction.  The new owners complied the violations immediately after obtaining title to the property. Their plans are to improve the property and bring it back to its proper potential.
The Special Magistrate heard Carlson Family LLC's request and recommends to the City Commission to reduce the lien to $3,335.74.

Recommendation is based on:
  1. An excess funds from tax sale receipt was received on May 22, 2015 in the amount of $6,875.24.  The reduced recommendation is for half of the excess funds payment (after paying lot clearing lien).
  2. The Carlson Family LLC has been in the business in Ft. Pierce since 1982 and has cleaned up and improved many properties putting them back to their proper potential.
  1. Deny the request.
  2. Make alternative recommendations.
Colleen Greer, Executive Secretary.
Margaret Arraiz, Code Compliance Manger.
