Board takes no action on codes enforcement


JAY FELSBERG
Managing Editor
The Washington County Board
of County Commissioners took
no action on adding the citation
method of codes enforcement to
its means of dealing with codes
issues. The Board discussed the
subject at its regular monthly
meeting Thursday.
The discussion came follow-
ing discussion at an earlier meet-
ing.
Chipley Codes Enforcement
Officer (CEO) Jim Lassiter
made a presentation describing
the merits of the citation system.


Under Chipley's version of the
citation system, Lassiter inves-
tigates a complaint and if neces-
sary a criminal citation is issued
for cleanup of a property.
Unless the problem is cor-
rected the accused would have
to go to court and go before the
judge. The court establishes the
time frame in which action must
be taken, and the judge has total
jurisdiction.
Even then Lassiter can ask the
judge to drop the charges if the
cleanup is done.
Lassiter said that in.his three-
and-a-half years as CEO there


have been 76 citations issued
for cleanup. Only about a dozen
have gone to court, with 95 per.
cent coming into compliance
within the time frame.
While Chipley still has a Codes
Enforcement Board (CEB) on
the books, it is inactive at pres.
ent. Lassiter has the authority to
issue citations.
Lassiter also presented the
Board with "before-and-after'
photos of properties cleaned up
under the citation method.
The County has a Codes En-

Board of Commissioners approves golf course rezoning


JAY FELSBERG
Managing Editor
The Washington County
Board of County Commissioners
approved a request for rezon-
ing of property around Falling
Waters Golf Course. The action
was taken at the Board's regular
meeting on Thursday.
The Board approved land-use
changes at the request of Jim
Morris and the City of Chipley.
Morris requested a change for
one parcel from agriculture to
low medium density, and the
City requested a change for an-
other parcel (84.5 acres) from
recreational to low and medium
density residential.
The plan is to add onto the golf
course and develop some of the
property with residences.
The Board also approved -a
request by Parks and Recreation
Director David Corbin using in-
mate crews to prepare a wing of
old Chipley High School for the
One-Stop Career Center.
One-Stop Director Anita
McLendon said that her agency
must leave the Washington-Hol-
mes Technical Center by De-
cember 31 so classrooms can be
added. David Corbin said a great
deal of work is necessary to
make that part of the old school
usable. There are funds for mate-
rial but the two-to-three-month
job will need someone,to do the'
labor, especially removing old
school material.

and One-Stop has done a lot for
the county," David Corbin said.
This led to discussion over
use of the inmate crews. Com-
missioners noted that there is
considerable demand for crews.
"We also have a lot to do else-
where," David Corbin admitted,
but the Board approved sending
two crews to get the work done
as'soon as possible.
In other business, the Board:
*Heard from David Corbin
that the inmate crews must be


removed from working at Hunter
Park due to the proximity of
Vernon Middle School. There is
an offer from Orange Hill Soil
Water Conservation District
(OHSWCD) to finish work on
the park within budget. The
county has spent about $68,000
of the $150,000 grant. David
Corbin said that Superintendent
Calvin Stevenson is also work-
ing on the problem.
*Approved accepting a van
donated by Washington County


EMS, and OHSWCD will donate
a trailer.
*Signed off on the $150,000
.grant for Wilder Park in Sunny
Hills. Plans (which are partially-
based on requirements for the
grant) include shuffleboard,
basketball courts, a skateboard
rink, and playground equipment.
Bathrooms will also be renovat-
- ed. The park is across the road
from the Sunny Hills Volunteer
Fire Department.
*Heard a complaint about

ing a squad challenge cycle;,
which includes a rock wall and

65 Florida high schools partici-

The goal of the JROTC Cadet

County urges compliance with 911 addressing ordinance


Like many counties,
Washington County is
having trouble with
property owners who are
not complying with the
911-addressing ordinance.
Specifically, Ordinance
97-8, Street naming
and numbering, which
was adopted in 1997 by
the Board of County
Commissioners.


Houses and businesses
need to be numbered
primarily for emergency
services, which often
cannot find an address
because a number is not
posted.
Proper posting of
numbers also ensures the
efficient delivery of mail,
packages, goods and utility
services.


Lynda Weller of the
Washington County
Codes Enforcement
Board recently sent a
memo to county agencies,
municipalities and the
Postal Service asking for
help in enforcing the law. A
form was sent to use to turn
in violators to the Codes
Enforcement Office.
The standards for


numbering set forth the
following procedures:
*Numbers must be
clearly visible and legible
from the roadway on which
the building or house was
addressed.
Numbers must be in
Arabic numerals and at
least three (3) inches tall
and a half-inch in width,
so emergency services can


see them while traveling
from either direction on
the road.
*Numbers must be in a
color contrasting with the
background of the building,
the post, the mailbox, and
so on.
*When applicable, easily
legible numbers will be
attached to mailboxes or
the mailbox post serving


the address.
*The assigned numbers
shall be displayed on the
address entrance of each
principal building.
*Any numbers which
might be confused with the
address numbers must be
removed.

CODES
Continued from page 1
forcement Board which
hears cases and approves
action. All the County CEB
can do is issue liens against
property owners. Lassiter
noted that this is very hard
to do against someone with
a Homestead exemption,
of which there are many
in the county, and overall
the system is "basically
useless."
"You will never collect
the lien," Lassiter said.
The citation method does
not recognize Homestead
exemptions since it does
not use liens. The citation
method is covered under
Florida statute 162.
Sometimes this is also
a slow process. In one
example noted Thursday, it
took three years to get the
Griffin junk yard cleaned


up, according to Wash-
ington County Codes En-
forcement Officer Lynda
Weller.
At the June 30 Board
meeting Weller made a
presentation on codes en-
forcement. She noted that
the most effective method
is voluntary compliance
once the alleged violators
are put on notice.
At present, if an alleged
violator has shown an un-
willingness to take care of
the violation the matter is
referred to the seven-mem-
ber CEB appointed by the
Board of County Commis-
sioners. A hearing is held,
and the public can testify
about the case.
If the CEB finds that
a violation has occurred,
they will issue an order to
comply and may impose
fines of up to $500 a day
until compliance takes


place. They can also order
the accused to pay admin-
istrative costs. The accused
can appeal his case to Cir-
cuit Court within 30 days.
Weller said that there
were only two cases on the
books at present that she
felt she needed to use a ci-
tation on. One a case is still
pending after several years,
"with a total disregard for
the Codes Enforcement
Board," she said.
She presented photos of
a property at 287 Pike Pond
Road where cleanup ef-
forts have been made since
November 2000. Two liens
were filed by the CEB in
2003 with no results. The
photos show the property
covered in junk, as well
as mobile homes which
do not have permits. There
are regular complaints by
neighbors, Weller said.
This case was cited as a


reason to have the use of
the citation method.
Lassiter said that the
citation. method might be
needed more in the city
due to closer proxim-
ity of homes. "In the city
we have people living 20
feet apart," Lassiter said.
"There, one man's junk
does affect his neighbor."
Lassiter suggested using
the citation method in hard
cases and leaving the CEB
in place. He also suggested
that if Weller and the prop-
erty owner could not work
out a solution within a
certain time that a citation
could be issued.
Citizens testified pro
and con about the citation
method. One man said that
all it was doing was pro-
viding Weller with a tool
of last resort. A petition
was presented on June 30
with 20 names in favor of


the citation method.
Washington County
CEB member Paul Day
opposed using the cita-
tion method. He said he
had dealt with the citation
method in Chipley and it
cost him money.
Day said he donated
money to the City of
Chipley "and they still
would not work with me,"
he said. He said he was
treated wrong and would
never forget it.
Former Chipley CEB
member John Ostrowski
said the citation method
was not needed. He said
that he was on the CEB
"we never had a problem."
He said that issuing a ci-
tation would mean that
someone would have to
go before a judge. "How
long would that take'?" Os-
trowski asked.
"I'm not sure I want


someone to tell me to move
my junk," said Board of
County Commissioners
Chairman Ronnie Finch,
The chairman said that the
citation method might be
needed for extreme cases.
but that deed restriction
in new subdivisions and
overall growth will get
most properties cleaned
up eventually. Finch also
said he had problems with
farmers being cited.
"I'm not sure we are at
the point of addressing ag.
riculture land," Finch said.
Weller said she has nev.
er issued a citation against
farm equipment. She said
she has always treated the
public fairly.
No motion was made
on adopting the citation
method and amending the
land development codes.
