I reviewed the staff reports prepared by Tim Beals for the Nuisance hearing and the referral to the District Attorney asking for an enforcement proceeding. The Diltz property is absolutely shocking and a blight on the community, beside being an obvious health and safety risk, both outside and inside the residence. The Diltz property DEFINES PUBLIC NUISANCE under your code.
Even Mr Diltz agrees as you can see from reading his letter of admission, following which he did nothing to clean up his property. Mr Beal’s packets outline dozens of code violations, State and County.
Please make the obvious and appropriate Findings and Order that the property be vacated immediately as a clear and dangerous health and safety risk…at least until needed repairs are made to the house and a functioning septic system is installed and approved to stop the effluent from running to Perry Creek. Additionally please order the property abated within 30 days, if not sooner, of all debris, illegal structures, vehicles, etc. as Mr Beals requested and your code allows you to do.
Mr Diltz is testing Sierra County as he has intentionally and flagrantly caused his residence and yard to become a Public Nuisance since at least 2015 when Mr Beals wrote asking him to clean up his property. Instead he worsened the situation directly challenging and disrespecting the County, his neighbors and the community.
Thank you for your consideration and for serving your communities.
