He received a citation with regard to an illegal shed. He shared that this shed was on the property when prior to his purchase and asked why was this violation not addressed at that time. Councilman Gilbert asked Mr. Lawson to discuss this issue with Sharon Ragoonan, Building and Code Compliance Director. Councilman Williams shared there is an ordinance on the books that he sponsored, which requires that the City inspect houses for code enforcement issues prior to purchase. This provides the potential buyer with notice prior to purchase. That ordinance was enacted prior to 2010, and would have applied in this situation. He asked what happened and why was this buyer not alerted. Sharon Ragoonan, Director of Building and Code Compliance appeared before the City Council and shared that eh Director of Code Compliance is checking the records to review what happened with this particular property. Councilman Williams shared for the audience's benefit that the City has an ordinance in place that requires a city inspection of any property before it is sold. The idea is to prevent any instances like this from occurring. Cecil Maitland, 2778 NW 1960' Street, Miami Gardens, Florida, the property owner, appeared before the City Council to express concern with an on-going problem with one of the neighbors in this residential complex. He shared that the police has been called out to this residence on several occasions. The Homeowners' Association is ill equip to handle this situation. Apparently the individual causing the problem has some mental illness issues. Councilman Gilbert asked that Mr. Maitland speak with Deputy Chief Miller about this matter. Almarie Carr, 2778 NW 19601 Street, the tenant of Mr. Maitland appeared before the City Council to further expound on this situation. She shared that she has several police reports involving incidents with this particular neighbor. This individual plays loud music all through the night and constantly slams doors throughout the apartment. When the police are called, this neighbor will not answer the door. She has cameras surrounding the apartment therefore she is aware when the officer arrives. This individual lives in an apartment owed by her brother, who has been fined on numerous occasions by the Homeowners Association. Ms Carr further shared that her vehicle was also set on fire by this individual's boyfriend. Councilman Gilbert said the City has no jurisdiction over homeowners' associations; however, if is a noise issue perhaps the police department can intervene. Councilwoman Robinson said perhaps this is an issue for the Nuisance Abatement Board.

Motion offered by Councilwoman Davis, seconded by Councilwoman Robinson to adopt this ordinance. Councilman Williams asked the City Manager to further expound on this item. Manager Crew said basically everybody has to register their alarm system. This provides that individuals will still get two free false alarms. After that there will be a fine levied on the third alarm, by the City. Councilman Williams asked what would happen if the fine is not paid and more fines are accumulated. Manager Crew said in that case this matter would be taken before the Special Master, like any other Code Enforcement matter. Ultimately, if not paid, a lien would be imposed on the property. Councilman Gilbert cautioned when establishing whether an alarm is a false alert. He said just because the police do a quick look around the property and do not see any sign of forced entry does not mean someone did not try to break in. He said if we are going to write that violation there needs to be a significant look around the property to be absolutely sure. Manager Crew said if the property owner came home and discovered something was taken the false alarm would be taken off their record.
