Violations/ Complaints:


242 Worthy (!/legal Rental- Erie Shores Ventures) Monitoring

A Pre-Trial Hearing has been scheduled for 10.22.21 at 9:30a.m.

Prior Info: Certified Letter sent 04/26/21 to owners notifying them to cease & desist renting the duplex for less than 30 days as advertised. To-date the letter has not been claimed despite notice being left by the post office. It is due to be returned as unclaimed starting 05.12.21. Once it is returned, the property and owners' local residence will be posted with the notice. The properties were posted 05.13.21 and the owner called 05.14.21. Owner said they would correct the situation and remove the reservations from their website. As of 05.25.21 more complaints were received regarding the usage of the property and the website still needs work. Owner was called and told to get it done immediately. If we continue to get more complaints, then a citation may need to be issued with the Court. We continue to get calls and emails about this property. The owner has removed a large

portion of their online listing and indicated that a college-aged daughter of one of the other co-owners is occupying the one unit this summer while working locally. When the property was posted 05.13.21, there was no one in either of the units. Received another complaint from someone different indicating fisherman were on the property at the time the message was received. I immediately drove to the property to observe, and again, there was no one on the property. Dianne has received concerns too regarding this property and the noise.

The complainants have been advised to contact the police regarding noise. 06.18.21 Outreach has been made with the prosecutor's office. Conference call was held 06.21.21 with the Prosecutor's office to discuss next steps. We received email and phone call complaints again over the 4th of July weekend regarding the continued renting of the units at this property. Advised the complainants that it was actively being pursued with the County Prosecutor's office. Prosecutor's office was supposed to conduct a knock at the property the weekend of 07.1 0.21 but did not, so they are filing charges based on inquiries made on availability. Complaint was filed with Municipal Court on 07.20.21. Case # CRB2100684A. Arraignment Hearing scheduled for 08.18.2021 @ 8:30am. Received a phone call from Rich Gillum 08.06.21 who will apparently be representing the defendant and indicated that they may waive arraignment and ask for a bench trial. 08.12.21 Defendant entered written Not Guilty Plea, filed a request for discovery, to waive arraignment appearance and requested a pre-trial and jury. Arraignment for 08.18.21 was cancelled.

5644 E. Harbor Road (Illegal residence - Former Shepherd Canvas) Open

Property owner has yet to pick up their letter at the P.O. which has been available since 09.14.21.

Prior Info: This is not an illegal rental in the traditional sense of short-term. 09.01.21 the CBO and I inspected the former Shepherd Canvas per the request of a tenant. The shop at the back of the property has been converted illegally into an apartment. Certified letter was sent to the property owner 09.07.21.


9438 E. Bayshore (Campground Expansion w/out approval- Somodi) Open

Owner was granted wI conditions a necessary Conditional Use to expand, but the variances were denied for the 6 campsites that encroach into the required setbacks.

Owner will need to be in contact to relocate the 6 sites and verify the number of units they have on the property to ensure it's in compliance with their license.

Prior Info: Certified letter was sent to property owner 07.30.21 and was delivered to the owner 08.04.21. Castaway Campground has expanded the campground by 12 RV sites without proper permits or BZA review. Owner called after receiving his letter and is scheduled to come in to discuss 08.10.21. The owner has filed a BZA application for the expansion to be on the BZA's September agenda.


122 Strause (Junk & Debris, Junk Vehicles & Boat - Hurst)

Open .

Complaint received 09.13.21 regards the junk and debris on this property. Certified letter was sent to the property owner 09.17.21. I met with the Ottawa County Health Department that day also to determine if any joint effort could be taken on the condition of this property.

There are certain items they said that would kick EPA into joining in, but this property didn't have those items. Also, the OCHD representative said that they tend to be more willing to go after properties where someone is living on it as opposed to vacant and abandoned properties.


248 Erie Beach (Junk Vehicle - Richard) CLOSED

Bench trial was scheduled for September 13, 2021, at 3:30p.m. I arrived at the court at 3: 15p.m. and because the Asst. Prosecutor was there and Mr. Richard arrived early, they started the bench trial without me. The charges for the truck were dismissed and Mr.

Richard pled "No Contest" on the mini-van charge. The Judge apparently found him guilty

and waived $50 of the $100 fine. The Asst. Prosecutor told me the Judge was on him about not being current on his fines from an earlier charge for having more recreational vehicles on the property than allowed. This will likely be a reoccurring issue with this gentleman for recreational vehicles, misc. junk & debris and junk vehicles.

Prior Info: This is a repeat offense. A new compliant was filed with the Ottawa County Municipal Court on 07.29.21 for having 2 junk vehicles on the property. Case # CRB2100741A&B. Arraignment Hearing scheduled for 08.18.2021 @ 8:30am. A similar complaint was filed in 2020 but eventually dismissed because the vehicles were running at the time and moved from their stationary positions on the property. At the arraignment hearing 08.18.21, the owner pled Not Guilty which kicks the case into a bench trial before the Judge, to be held September 13,2021, at 3:30p.m.


7522 E. Harbor Road (Tall Grass WadsworthlBresky


Complaint received 09.15.21 regarding tall grass and weeds on this property. Certified letter sent to property owner 09.20.21.

6114 Port Clinton Eastern Rd. (Tall Grass Dlubak)


Emailed complaint regarding tall weeds came in 09.14.21. Owner was called and said he'd take care of it the same week. As of 09.20.21 owner addressed the field portions of the property but not at the base of the dirt mounds. Letter will be sent to owner clarifying that more action is needed.

7426 E. Bayshore Road (Tall Grass - Smecker) Open

This property, the owner is deceased, and it's been going thru a foreclosure proceeding.

The bank's property management company was maintaining since we cut it in June and assessed it, but they suddenly stopped all maintenance. When I reached out to the company on 09.07.21 they replied that they no longer have this property in their system.

When I researched the court case proceedings, it appears as though it is going to go to sheriff auctionl property sales soon, but no set date has been made for that yet. I reached out to the attorney representing the bank also and have not heard from him. A resolution is enclosed for your consideration. Once passed, they will have 4 days to get the grass cut or we'll enter, cut it, and assess it again.

1935 Ellsworth (Tall Grass - Brown) CLOSED

Certified Letters were sent to parties of interest 09.09.21. Mr. Brown's was returned as undeliverable (obviously & expectedly.) His significant other has apparently moved since last sending a letter this summer because her letter is also being returned. A letter to his brother who is apparently not responsible for his brother's estate did accept the letter, so my hope is that he will reach out to whoever should be dealing with this. Nonetheless, the cut was ordered 09.14.21. Printy was scheduled to cut it the morning of 09.20.21.

Prior Info: This is the property where the owner in deceased, the family is not probating his property and it's not delinquent enough in taxes and will be an on-going issue for us.

We abated it back in June and said the most we would cut it is twice a year. Resolution is enclosed for your consideration.

2307 & 2308 S. Danbury Station Road (Tall Grass - Danchisen) Open

Grass has been cut as of 09.14.21, but the weeds around the house are still up to the windows. Owner picked up letter 09.14.21. 7-day reinspection will be 09.21.21 ..

Prior Info: Certified Letter sent to property owner 09.07.21. Grass is knee high.

7291 Applewood (Tall Grass - Huddleston) Open

Owner returned my call 09.13.21 and asked for an extension on the fence until the end of October. I called her back and left a message with her that I would give her until October 1, 2021 to deal with the fence and if an extension is needed longer than that, then I want

to speak to the person fixing/repairing her fence directly to have a better understanding of the timeframe they think they can get it taken care of and why it's taking so long.

Property was posted 07.21.21 because it was confirmed that a woman & child are living in the home. Will have until 07.28.21 to remove weeds & tall grass in rear yard.
