Dear Cactus Thorns:
So what’s going on with Code Enforcement in Yucca Valley?
A Yucca Valley code enforcement officer has issued several citations on a residential property representing several thousand dollars in fines for the following violations: (1) overweight vehicles on the property, (2) performing mechanic work out of their house in a residential neighborhood, (3) excessive noise disturbing the neighborhood’s entitlement of quiet enjoyment with drilling, generators continuously running for 12 to 13 hours a day, cars revving engines all day into the evening hours and tire removals adding to the noise, (4) junk cars are stored in the backyard, and, (5) Eight to ten vehicles are parked in front of the house most of the time for repairs.
The tenants are conducting a commercial business of auto repair in a residential neighborhood, which is in violation of law.
Code enforcement has made it very clear the tenants are in violation of several ordinances of the Town. So, if that is the case, why have they let this continue from October until now, which is over 7 months?
Code enforcement said, they will do nothing to force enforce the law.
The property owners are not concerned with their rental property and stated they have filed an eviction notice but it was not served, which does not move the eviction process forward. The code enforcement is aware of this claim, but refuses to do anything to enforce their own citations issued to the property owner.
The entire neighborhood has been suffering because the pro-active/re-active code enforcement has become in-active on this issue. Why is that? Complaints to the Yucca Valley Deputy Town Manager/Director of Code Enforcement by several residents have fallen on deaf ears and he refuses to do anything!
I thought city government was supposed to protect the property values, environment and citizens of our community?
1. Why is Code Enforcement not enforcing the citations issued?
2. Why haven’t the hazards been removed from the property?
3. Why are the citations exempt to pay the fines?
4. Why isn’t the property owner being held responsible and forced to clean up the property?
