Old Business (Probable Cause)
Cathy Schrock vs. Arnold Pearson d/b/a Pearson’s Manufactured Housing Specialist, Inc.
Rhonda introduced the case. Both parties were present. Randygave an update from the previous meeting. He stated that no additional permits had been applied for yet, i.e., plumbing or roofing.
Mr. Pearson spoke saying that work hadn’t started because Ms. Schrock wanted a contract prior to commencement of the work. The Board agreed that a contract should have been ironed out by now.
Ms. Schrock stated that her attorney suggested the contract be written out line by line; there is currently to much grey area.
Mr. Pearson stated that once they get started, they can work through any issues that may arise.
The Board stated that either Randy or the Building Inspection Department will be inspecting for anycode violations and that they (the Board) cannot deal with contract issues. Contracts are something that the owner needs to work out with the contractor. They also stated that Mark Brown, the original contractor on the job, is gone; the Board can do nothing about him. However, Pearson’s is here and we can act against his license if necessary.
Mr. Blackman made a motion to move the case to a formal hearing unless Ms. Schrock notifies Rhonda that she is satisfied with the progress on the house. Mr. Southerland seconded the motion and without further discussion the motion carried with a unanimous vote.
Mr. Blackman made a motion to adjourn the meeting. Mr.Southerland seconded the motion. The motion carried with a unanimous vote.
