Opa-locka code enforcement resumes special master’s hearings

The city’s code enforcement department resumes its special master’s hearings in December - addressing a backlog of cases from January this year.

The hearings are scheduled for Wednesday, December 19 at 10:30 am and the following day Thursday, December 20 at 10:30 am and at 1:30 pm. The special master’s hearings will take place in the city Attorney’s conference room, 4th floor of the Town Center Municipal Complex, 780 Fisherman Street.

The two-days of hearings will address the 96 cases that ban saggy, baggy pants as a fashion. Violators are issued a $250 citation for each incident. The magistrate judge could impose the fine or give community service. Repeat fashion offenders, or no-shows could face a judgment lien.

The remaining 240 pending cases – issues ranging from trash violations, landlord permit issues, selling liquor too early on Sunday and businesses operating without an occupational license – will be heard in the new year. For January and February 2013, the city will hold special master’s hearings every Thursday at 10:30 am.

This year the city handed out 1,155 code enforcement citations.
