The home is in foreclosure, according to Community Standards.

The board granted seven days for the mold to be removed from the home. If not, the District will use its new authority to pressure wash the home and impose a $150 per hour fine each time it is washed. In addition, the District will begin servicing the lawn and impose a $250 fine each time the lawn is maintained.

The home had been the subject of a public hearing in 2020. In that case the fines were paid and the case was closed.
