To Whom it May Concern,

On April 6, 2021, the Structural Inspection Board reviewed the structure described above according to Article 11.04 (Unsafe Structures) of the City Code.

Based on an inspection by member(s) of the Board, the structure was determined to be in violation of articles 11.04.010 (a). It is the opinion of the Structural Inspection Board that the structure cannot be reasonably repaired and should be ordered to be demolished. The Finding of Fact is attached to this notice.

The Structural Inspection Board will recommend that Oak Hill City Council issue an order directing you to demolish the structure. It is advisable that you appear at the Council meeting to show cause why you should not be ordered to demolish the structures if you disagree with the Structural Inspection Board. If you have any questions, you may contact my office.

Council will discuss the Board’s recommendation after this notice has been published in the Fayette Tribune beginning April 29, 2021 and ending May 13, 2021.
