FAIRFIELD — The City Council on Tuesday granted a request to delay to May 20 a hearing on a proposed special property tax assessment for property at 274 Daphne Drive.
A total of $49,170 is proposed to cover code enforcement at a residential property where the city says 59 tires, more than 100 bicycles and bike parts, along with four inoperable vehicles were stored – and debris, dead trees, old oil-based paint cans and other materials were removed.
The assessment would cover costs of the code enforcement.
Homeowner Robert Gayer, who disputes the city’s description of conditions and contends the city violated his constitutional rights, asked that the matter be continued.
The city has said it followed the law in its cleanup – including securing a nuisance abatement warrant in 2013 from the Solano County Superior Court for the Daphne Drive property.
