During the meeting, the City Commission will hold a public meeting regarding property violations of the city’s health and sanitation ordinance at 2284 Ferndale Drive. The board will determine whether to authorize correction of the violations.

The property has dead tree limbs, trash, debris, tall weeds and grass, and is unsecure. According to a memo from Code Enforcement Officer Cynthia Hardnett, the property is a blighting influence on the neighborhood and is in a dangerous and unsanitary condition.

The property owner has been notified of the condition of the property and has not responded to the notices and has not taken action to correct the code violations, the memo states.

If the City Commission finds the property to be in violation of the ordinance, the board could authorize action to have the property cleaned and secured, brought into compliance with the health and sanitation ordinance, and be assessed for the cost of that work.

The mayor will also read a proclamation for Children’s Environmental Health Day which raises awareness about the importance of clean air and water, safe food and consumer products, healthy environments, and stable climates to children’s health and development, the proclamation says.
