Any questions for branding? 00:04:48
Chris. 00:04:50
Right. 00:04:51
Good afternoon, Mayor Council. I smelled you blood. 00:04:54
Got it. So I want to introduce you all to our new Deputy Director of Environmental Services. This is John Smith. 00:04:57
You'll be seeing him around and presenting some stuff as it comes up, but I want him to tell you a little bit about himself and 00:05:05
ask him some questions. 00:05:08
Hey, John. Good afternoon, Mayor. Afternoon. 00:05:12
I've been in the city 20 years now and it started as crew worker and worked my way up through the ranks and. 00:05:16
Just ready to get going, Environmental services. 00:05:21
This will be easier than picking up those big tires and moving. 00:05:23
I don't know. I don't know. 00:05:27
Only concern is what police maintenance. I I hate losing. You've done such a great job over there you and your team. They got a 00:05:32
good team down. I think we'll. 00:05:36
We're we're progress on. 00:05:40
They'll find the right person. 00:05:42
From our place. 00:05:44
Congratulations. 00:05:45
See you look sharp. 00:05:48
Forward to seeing you doing your work. 00:05:50
Yeah, alright. 00:05:53
Thank you, Chris, for bringing John up here today. 00:05:55
Mr. Mary jumped in. 00:05:58
This is all. 00:06:08
1330 26th St. 00:06:09
We've had it in condemnation for a while. It was set to go. 00:06:12
It was tabled to be be heard tonight but due to some clerical. 00:06:16
Errors and scheduling. 00:06:20
We were not able to get it on here. 00:06:22
Ohh. 00:06:24
The owner may be here anyway because she did get her letter. 00:06:27
How are we did? 00:06:31
Make contact with her on Friday to let her know we've been postponed. 00:06:32
But she still might show up tonight anyway. 00:06:35
So I'm confused. We're not. 00:06:39
Hearing and voting. 00:06:41
No Sir, I'm just letting you know that she's the owner. May be here to speak. 00:06:43
You know. 00:06:47
I guess. 00:06:48
A public setting? 00:06:49
And. 00:06:51
Just kind of give you. 00:06:51
Yeah, yeah, she's done a lot of work. 00:06:54
We're we're very pleased with what she's accomplished. 00:06:56
And Barry, let me ask you, let me let you explain something I think to everybody that's important when this house was purchased. 00:06:59
It was under condemnation, yeah. 00:07:08
Yeah. So how does that? 00:07:11
Change things. As far as your department doesn't change anything, she has to pick up where the other one left off. Well, basically 00:07:13
we start over. 00:07:16
But you know, the condemnation process doesn't stop because of ownership change. It just continues right on. 00:07:21
And I believe that's the question that we may hear tonight if she comes is. 00:07:27
She wanted under. 00:07:32
Condemnation to go away but. 00:07:36
It does. 00:07:38
She has to get it to a point where we can turn it loose. 00:07:39
Struggling with the procedural issue when is the soonest they can be back for the City Council? 00:07:43
Next. 00:07:49
And based on the. 00:07:52
Correct trajectory or y'all expecting to. 00:07:53
Recommend. 00:07:56
For us to keep giving them some down, we're going, we're going to ask for another. 00:07:57
Probably 30 days to give her time to get the siding buttoned up. She's got new Windows in. 00:08:02
And she's ripped all the old siding off and fixed to put new, new siding on and kind of I thought it was going to work into her 00:08:07
favor by postponing it. 00:08:12
Or bumping it out another month. 00:08:17
But after she got her letters, I guess she was adamant about being here or voicing her opinion on it. I'm not sure exactly what 00:08:20
what the deal is. Have you? 00:08:24
Ability to speak to her since they left Friday, OK? 00:08:30
She's made tremendous improvement. 00:08:34
On this so if it's coming back to us next weekend. 00:08:38
That probably won't. 00:08:41
Oh. 00:08:43
One week of a difference. 00:08:45
Do you have a kind of? 00:08:46
Trajectory because the 30 days. 00:08:48
Well, if she gets the vinyl siding put up. 00:08:51
Between now and and next Tuesday I wouldn't have a problem pulling it out. 00:08:53
Thank you. And we tried to explain that to her Friday that you know, yes this gives you a little bit more time to to make more 00:08:59
improvements and possibly get finished up and we can cut you loose completely except for inspection side. 00:09:05
OK. 00:09:12
Gotcha. But I just, you know, she was. 00:09:13
Kind of adamant about. 00:09:16
Her opinions on this SO. 00:09:18
She may be here tonight and she may she might be a little aggressive. 00:09:20
OK. 00:09:24
So just kind of getting your heads up. 00:09:25
Well, you're just you're doing what you what you supposed to do. 00:09:32
Yeah. 00:09:39
Yeah. 00:09:41

Thank you. 00:04:45
Any questions for branding? 00:04:48
Chris. 00:04:50
Right. 00:04:51
Good afternoon, Mayor Council. I smelled you blood. 00:04:54
Got it. So I want to introduce you all to our new Deputy Director of Environmental Services. This is John Smith. 00:04:57
You'll be seeing him around and presenting some stuff as it comes up, but I want him to tell you a little bit about himself and 00:05:05
ask him some questions. 00:05:08
Hey, John. Good afternoon, Mayor. Afternoon. 00:05:12
I've been in the city 20 years now and it started as crew worker and worked my way up through the ranks and. 00:05:16
Just ready to get going, Environmental services. 00:05:21
This will be easier than picking up those big tires and moving. 00:05:23
I don't know. I don't know. 00:05:27
Only concern is what police maintenance. I I hate losing. You've done such a great job over there you and your team. They got a 00:05:32
good team down. I think we'll. 00:05:36
We're we're progress on. 00:05:40
They'll find the right person. 00:05:42
From our place. 00:05:44
Congratulations. 00:05:45
See you look sharp. 00:05:48
Forward to seeing you doing your work. 00:05:50
Yeah, alright. 00:05:53
Thank you, Chris, for bringing John up here today. 00:05:55
Mr. Mary jumped in. 00:05:58
This is all. 00:06:08
1330 26th St. 00:06:09
We've had it in condemnation for a while. It was set to go. 00:06:12
It was tabled to be be heard tonight but due to some clerical. 00:06:16
Errors and scheduling. 00:06:20
We were not able to get it on here. 00:06:22
Ohh. 00:06:24
The owner may be here anyway because she did get her letter. 00:06:27
How are we did? 00:06:31
Make contact with her on Friday to let her know we've been postponed. 00:06:32
But she still might show up tonight anyway. 00:06:35
So I'm confused. We're not. 00:06:39
Hearing and voting. 00:06:41
No Sir, I'm just letting you know that she's the owner. May be here to speak. 00:06:43
You know. 00:06:47
I guess. 00:06:48
A public setting? 00:06:49
And. 00:06:51
Just kind of give you. 00:06:51
Yeah, yeah, she's done a lot of work. 00:06:54
We're we're very pleased with what she's accomplished. 00:06:56
And Barry, let me ask you, let me let you explain something I think to everybody that's important when this house was purchased. 00:06:59
It was under condemnation, yeah. 00:07:08
Yeah. So how does that? 00:07:11
Change things. As far as your department doesn't change anything, she has to pick up where the other one left off. Well, basically 00:07:13
we start over. 00:07:16
But you know, the condemnation process doesn't stop because of ownership change. It just continues right on. 00:07:21
And I believe that's the question that we may hear tonight if she comes is. 00:07:27
She wanted under. 00:07:32
Condemnation to go away but. 00:07:36
It does. 00:07:38
She has to get it to a point where we can turn it loose. 00:07:39
Struggling with the procedural issue when is the soonest they can be back for the City Council? 00:07:43
Next. 00:07:49
And based on the. 00:07:52
Correct trajectory or y'all expecting to. 00:07:53
Recommend. 00:07:56
For us to keep giving them some down, we're going, we're going to ask for another. 00:07:57
Probably 30 days to give her time to get the siding buttoned up. She's got new Windows in. 00:08:02
And she's ripped all the old siding off and fixed to put new, new siding on and kind of I thought it was going to work into her 00:08:07
favor by postponing it. 00:08:12
Or bumping it out another month. 00:08:17
But after she got her letters, I guess she was adamant about being here or voicing her opinion on it. I'm not sure exactly what 00:08:20
what the deal is. Have you? 00:08:24
Ability to speak to her since they left Friday, OK? 00:08:30
She's made tremendous improvement. 00:08:34
On this so if it's coming back to us next weekend. 00:08:38
That probably won't. 00:08:41
Oh. 00:08:43
One week of a difference. 00:08:45
Do you have a kind of? 00:08:46
Trajectory because the 30 days. 00:08:48
Well, if she gets the vinyl siding put up. 00:08:51
Between now and and next Tuesday I wouldn't have a problem pulling it out. 00:08:53
Thank you. And we tried to explain that to her Friday that you know, yes this gives you a little bit more time to to make more 00:08:59
improvements and possibly get finished up and we can cut you loose completely except for inspection side. 00:09:05
OK. 00:09:12
Gotcha. But I just, you know, she was. 00:09:13
Kind of adamant about. 00:09:16
Her opinions on this SO. 00:09:18
She may be here tonight and she may she might be a little aggressive. 00:09:20
OK. 00:09:24
So just kind of getting your heads up. 00:09:25
Well, you're just you're doing what you what you supposed to do. 00:09:32
Yeah. 00:09:39
Yeah. 00:09:41
