In the Pines Fate
Gainesville Code Enforcement Officers took their case against "In The Pines Apartments" to the City's Code Enforcement board this week.
One hundred eighty days. That's the amount of time this board will give owners of this property to fix problems like that.
Rotten wood, weak staircases, caving floors ...examples of problems we found a few weeks ago when we visited In The Pines Apartments.
The code Enforcement Board, which is made up of Gainesville residents, agreed to the request. If that's not done ... The owners face fines of a thousand dollars per day per problem.
Code Enforcement Board Vice Chair Darlene Pifalo says the repairs are long overdue. Meanwhile, O'Neal says the company he works for, which is called Centurion Partners, should get the job done in time but they'll have to close on the property first.
A potential solution to a problem that Code Enforcement Officers spent almost a year investigating.
The board also approved a fee more than five thousand dollars for all the work and time spent on this case.
Representatives for Centurion Partners plan to close on the property Friday afternoon. O'Neal says he hopes to start major repairs the following day.
