The following Board and staff members <br />were present: Commissioner Richard Wojt, Commissioner Dan Harpole, David Specter, Jean Baldwin, <br />Chester Pruhomme, Randy Marx, Thomas Locke, MD and Judi Morris. Larry Fay and the City of Port <br />Townsend's representative Ted Shoulberg were not present. <br /> <br />APPROVAL OF MINUTES: Commissioner Harpole moved to approve the minutes of May 28, <br />1997 as presented. Commissioner Wojt seconded the motion which carried by a unanimous vote. <br /> <br />PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD: Jim and Janice Schauer stated they own property adjacent to <br />Linda Sexton's property located in Chimacum. (Background: Ms. Sexton has been collecting and storing <br />such an abundance of solid waste on her property that she has been notified by the Health Department that <br />she must either begin the permitting process for a solid waste facility or initiate a plan to clean up the <br />property. She appealed the Health Department's decision to the Jefferson County Health Board (see <br />minutes of May 28, 1997). The Board directed the Health Officer to work with Ms. Sexton on a <br />compliance schedule and ordered Ms. Sexton to stop collecting solid waste materials until an agreement is <br />reached.) The Schauer's property has been on the market for over two years. The Schauer's and their <br />Real Estate agent believe that the condition of Ms. Sexton's property is the main reason that their property <br />has not sold. Both Mr. and Mrs. Schauer have tried to talk to Ms. Sexton about cleaning up her property, <br />but she will not listen. They hope that the Health Board can get her to clean up her property to the <br />standards maintained by everyone else in the community. Mrs. Schauer stated that there are two <br />gentlemen currently staying on the property and she witnessed one of them throw the remainder of an <br />unwanted sandwich into the yard. With food being brought onto the property they are concerned that this <br />could cause a huge problem with rats. In the past, the property was overrun with cats which the Schauer's <br />trapped and removed at their own expense. <br /> <br />HEALTH <br />DEPARTMENT <br />360/385.9400 <br /> <br />ENVIRONMENTAL <br />HEALTH <br />360/385.9444 <br /> <br />DEVELOPMENTAL <br />DISABILITIES <br />360/385-9400 <br /> <br />ALCOHOL/DRUG <br />ABUSE CENTER <br />360/385-9435 <br /> <br />FAX <br />360/385.9401 <br />
