Citation frustration


As he awaits a hearing about an environmental violation, a homeowner keeps receiving threatening notices from the city

January 18, 2009|By Liz F. Kay | Liz F. Kay,

THE PROBLEM : A homeowner's environmental citation fine continues to accrue even though he had applied for a hearing.

THE BACKSTORY : Schuyler Denham received a $50 citation in October for leaving a toilet and a sink in the alley behind his Mondawmin home. His daughter, who lives in the house, was installing a new bathroom and had left the fixtures. "Apparently that was the day the inspector decided to walk down the alley," said Denham, who lives in Colorado. Others, however, are still waiting. Besides contacting the company directly, you could also file a complaint with the body that oversees the cable franchise where you live. Anne Arundel, Carroll and Howard counties and Baltimore City have cable TV administrators or commissions that receive complaints. In Baltimore and Harford counties, you should call the County Council.
