A complaint was received Jan. 11 about the overgrown bushes as well as weeds, hanging palm fronds and branches in the backyard. The other items have been cleaned up, but the bushes remain overgrown.

The CDD 2 board gave the homeowner seven days to bring the property into compliance. If the property is not brought into compliance, a series of fines will be imposed.
