Law & Ordinance - Mr. Nunnery

No Report

Dave Moorman mentioned that the Rental Permits were due in June, 2016. Barbara Gillespie, a rental property owner in North Bend, asked how our rental permit is obtained and if North Bend could send a code enforcer to her property to complete the inspection. Ron Nunnery stated that North Bend sends an Application for Permit and a Rental Inspection Checklist to the owner of the property and the owner does an assessment of their property. Ms. Gillespie stated she would rather not complete the inspection herself because of liability, etc. (If she needed to evict a tenant, they could file complaints against her if she inspected and passed her own property through our rental permit process). It was mentioned that Ms. Gillespie could hire an inspector for the process of obtaining a permit.

Fran Romweber stated the lot owned by Keith Niehaus on Sunset Avenue is overgrown.

Mayor Sammons asked Ron Nunnery to check the lots on Muirfield for the same reason.

The lot at 163 St. Annes was discussed. The owner of 163 St. Annes called the office after North Bend issued a Notice to him regarding his overgrown lot. He stated he has kept the front and middle portion of his lot cut by hiring a landscaping company. He had just spoken with John Niehaus again regarding a special type of grass that was purposely planted on the back section of his lot, knowing that no one was able to cut that steep section.

Beautification – Fran Romweber

Our next Beautification meeting is Saturday, September 10th at 9:30am in Council Hall.

Dave Moorman stated that one of our employees had a minor, on the job injury. North Bend should consider an injury protocol for these types of situations. Dave said there is a new Urgent Care facility on Route 128 across from Krogers and (7/24) Emergency Facility at Good Sam Western Ridge on Harrison Avenue. Dave will do some research on this subject, share a DRAFT Protocol and suggested protocol information should be added to our Employee’s Handbook.

FYI - We received a letter from a couple who was complaining about how their area looks. They mentioned trimming, flower planters, street cleaning and litter. They were under the impression they lived in North Bend and wanted their area to look like the rest of North Bend. They did not live within our boundaries. People are noticing the work Rick and our maintenance crew are doing. People are comparing communities.
