FRESNO – The city of Fresno claims that the owner of a property in the city has failed to bring it into compliance with municipal code.
City of Fresno and people of the state of California filed a complaint on May 12 in the Fresno County Superior Court against Steve De Wayne Pearson and Does 1-10 alleging that they violated the Fresno Municipal Code.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that from 2008 to the present, the city has noticed defendants to correct the public nuisance at an East Cambridge Avenue property, without effect. To date, the assessed costs and penalties for defendants' property allegedly remains unpaid.
The plaintiffs hold Pearson and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to take the necessary corrective action to bring the subject property into compliance and failed to pay assessed costs and penalties.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek an order for the payment of all abatement and administrative costs and citations, attorney fees and such other and relief as the court deems proper. They are represented by Douglas T. Sloan and Kenneth J. Jorgensen of the city of Fresno.
