BACKGROUND/RELATED STRATEGIC GOAL:

Orjan Ahlstrom Fine Reduction Request:

This Fine Reduction Stipulation and Agreed Recommended Order involves a parcel located at 3142 & 3152 SE Hawthorn Street, Stuart, Martin County, Florida.

On June 19, 2013, an Order Finding Violation was issued by the Code Enforcement Magistrate to Orjan Ahlstrom, for the following violation(s): Section 67.201.B - Nuisance Declared: Trash, Etc, General Ordinances, Martin County Code and Section 67.201.A. - Nuisance Declared: Weeds, Undergrowth, General Ordinances, Martin County Code.

Compliance was required by July 5, 2013. On November 13, 2013, an Affidavit of Compliance/Accrued Fines was issued reflecting an outstanding fine of $ 26,200.00 plus costs in the amount of $575.00.
3152 SE HAWTHORNE STREET LAND TRUST is the current owner of the property. Pursuant to a Deed to Trustee recorded in Official Records Book 2666, Page 1831, Martin County, Florida Public Records, Orjan Ahlstrom has no remaining interest in the property.

Staff has determined that a lien reduction is warranted. Current Owners were not responsible for the violation; however, they have offered to pay $2,677.50 to resolve the outstanding fines which have accrued.
