Topic: Fix What's Broken
Sunriver Forced to Clean Waste in one of Fresno's top Neighborhoods.
Here is a copy of the letter addressed to me by Councilmember Brian Calhoun. The councilmember's office is watching out for us. He is meeting our needs. All we need to do is to let him know. We want to thank him for his efforts on our behalf. Our voices have been silent so many times. That is the way to go, Brian Calhoun's office and Evangelina Flores!
Thank you for continuing to work with the District 2 office. Councilmember Calhoun empathizes with your concerns about the blight resulting from the festering junk on the Patriot's/Sunriver Homes-owned lot near your home. He is disappointed that Patriot's/Sunriver Homes has neglected to maintain minimum standards of cleanliness on their property.
Consequently, Councilmember Calhoun has referred this problem to our Code Enforcement Department for investigation. He requested that I update you on our his efforts to force Patriot's/Sunriver Homes to clean up the rubbish they continually dump on their empty lot.
Our office opened an official complaint against Patriot's/Sunriver Homes with the Code Enforcement Department on January 31st. The Code Enforcement Department inspected the lot the next day. On February 2nd, Patriot's/Sunriver Homes were sent an official Notice to clean the property within 30 days. After this time span has elapsed, if the lot is not sufficiently cleaned, Code Enforcement will levy fines against Patriot's/Sunriver Homes.
I will continue to keep you updated on any new information we receive. I appreciate your patience as we work to resolve this issue. Once again, thank you for working to keep your neighborhood clean and safe.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Thank you for the opportunity to assist you.
Councilmember, District 2"
