A complaint was received May 13 about overgrown grass and weeds and mold on the home. The problem with the grass and weeds has been remedied, but the mold remains.

Community Standards had contact with the homeowner at an initial visit when the deed compliance violation was verified. Community Standards has not since been able to reach the homeowner.

The board agreed to provide seven days for the removal of the mold. If it is not removed, fines will be imposed and the District will use its new powers to power wash the home.
