Minutes-June 24,2003 Page 6 Breastfield & Pauline Dearman, owners of 3050 Grand Beaumont, TX Mr. Dearman admitted to Council that he had been on a work program since 1997, but had not completed all necessary repairs on the structure because of a disabling condition. This was the fourth time the structure has been before Council. He also admitted he had performed the electrical and plumbing work needed, not knowing he had to have the work performed by licensed electricians and plumbers. Pam Loiacano, from Clean Community, also reminded Mr. Dearman that he must obtain permits for any work to be done. Mayor Lord asked him if he lived in the structure. Mr. Dearman responded he did sometimes. Mayor Lord also asked Mr. Dearman about the delinquent taxes that are due at more than $13,000 dollars.

Councilmember Samuel asked Mr. Dearman if he could financially afford to make all necessary repairs in accordance with City Codes. Mr. Dearman stated he would have to allot monies from the disability monies he receives monthly. Councilmember Samuel asked Mr. Dearman if he understood that if he put monies on repairing the structure and did not make significant progress in the time Council may allot, that the structure would automatically be demolished. Mr. Dearman said he was willing to make an effort to make the repairs knowing the structure could be demolished. Nelda Muirhead, owner of 5230 Roberts Road Beaumont, TX Mrs. Muirhead stated she purchased this property in June 2001.

Joe Jarmon, owner of 3160 Gulf Beaumont, TX Mr. Jarmon stated he purchased this property three years ago. He told Council the delay experienced in completing the renovations had been due to funding the project. He stated he has secured a contractor within the past two weeks and work had begun to rehabilitate the structure. However, he was informed by Pam Loiacano, of Clean Community, that the work had to stop until a contractor's bond was filed and permits received. Pam Loiacano, of Clean Community, told Council this was the first time Mr. Jarmon had come before Minutes-June 24,2003 Page 7 Council, but that he had been enrolled in a work program and had also received an extension. Councilmember Beaulieu confirmed that a contractor had been hired to complete the project. Mr. Jarmon told Councilmember Beaulieu the contractor was working on the structure in the afternoons and on the weekends and for this reason he was requesting 120 days from Council to complete all necessary renovations. Mayor Lord reiterated to Mr. Jarmon and to all property owners that if significant progress was not made on renovations within a time period allotted by City Council, that the structures would automatically be demolished. She wanted the general public to understand as well the changes made in the new Ordinance passed by Council that prohibits an owner to reappear before Council for additional time to be granted in contrast to procedures in place in previous years before a dilapidated structure is razed. Councilmember Samuel confirmed with Mr.Jarmon that he understood a licensed plumber and electrician must be hired to perform the respective work necessary in each category. Zohren Shahrodi, owner of 4010 Magnolia Beaumont, TX Mr. Shahrodi states that this structure was damaged by fire and he had experienced a delay in the insurance settlement. Mr. Sharodi states that he received correspondence from Pam Loiacano, of Clean Community, informing him to appear before City Council to ask for an extension of 90 to 120 days to work on the structure. Mr. Shahrodi thanked the Beaumont Fire Department for extinguishing the fire within a seven (7) minute time frame and for containing damage to basically two (2) rooms. Councilmember Samuel expressed his intention to have substandard structures demolished on Magnolia Street. Councilmember Samuel also stressed his strong commitment to rehabilitating and revitalizing efforts along Magnolia and its surrounding communities. He wanted Mr. Shahrodi to understand that if substantial work was not made on the structure within a time period allotted by Council, the structure would be razed. Mr. Shahrodi assured Councilmember Samuel and Council that he was committed to the revitalization efforts of Magnolia and its neighborhoods. James Stewart, owner of 4204 Bessemer Beaumont TX Mr. Stewart told Council he purchased this property last year at a Jefferson County Tax Auction and immediately began renovations. Those efforts included exterminating termites from the structure, placing a new roof on the structure, removing eight lowboys of trash from the yard and spending $11,000 on improvements to the structure. Mr. Stewart told Council that while renovating the house, the newly installed front and back doors were stolen. He stated he became frustrated at this point, stopped repairing the dwelling and after deciding to sell the property, the `For Sale' sign was stolen. Within a few months of this episode, the newly installed windows were stolen. He told Council this was his first time before Council to address them about this structure. He told Council he purchased and renovated a dilapidated structure in the same neighborhood three years ago and has had a renter dwell in this house for the past few years. Minutes-June 24,2003 Page 8 Mr. Stewart asked Council to grant him six months to decide to complete renovation efforts or sale the property. Mayor Pro Tern Ames confirmed with Pam Loiacano, of Clean Community, that Mr. Stewart had enrolled in a work program. Mayor Lord again stressed to Mr. Stewart that should Council grant any additional time,significant work progress must be made on the structure. Councilmember Patterson told Mr. Stewart Council does not normally allot more than 120 days to an owner to work on these structures. She suggested if granted such time, he should enroll in a work program within ten (10) days and then decide on a course of action within thirty (30) days. She explained by doing so, he would still have sufficient time remaining to begin and make significant progress on the additional renovations. Councilmember Beaulieu and Pam Loiacano with Clean Community agreed with this suggestion. Mr. Stewart voiced his disagreement with this suggestion continuing to request a six-month extension. Mayor Lord noted that Council had never given a six- month extension and normal procedures would be enforced should an extension be granted.
