Background:

The previous property owner was issued Island County Cease and Desist Order: Case No. 025/14 dated 2/19/15 for storage of junk cars. This Cease and Desist Order indicates several reasons why junk car storage can not be permitted in this residential neighborhood.

From Cease and Desist Order Case No. COV 025/14:

Page 2 of 4 D. No more than one junk vehicle can be stored on a lot less than one acre in size.


I received an email from a Code Enforcement Planner on August 17th, 2017.

“Thank you for your call regarding (property address). I have a re-inspection at the end of next week and I can let you know the count then.  Thank you very much.”

A re-inspection indicates that one or more inspections have already taken place at (property address).

Never heard back on number of junk cars on property.

Public Records Request to Island County Planning on Dec. 19th, 2017:

Please provide all records and inspection reports indicating any visits to (property address) by Code Enforcement Planner (first & last name) that took place before or after this August 17th, 2017 email was sent.

Response from Island County:

So far- no records or inspection reports indicating any visits to (property address) by Code Enforcement Planner (first & last name) that took place before or after this August 17th, 2017 email was sent.

I have been told that “…an inspection means our code enforcement planner goes out to the site to see what is happening, it does not mean an inspection report has been written up.”
