YAKIMA, Washington. After nearly two months of surveillance, Yakima police and city officials raided a property Wednesday afternoon for numerous code violations. Officials said that these types of violations are a permanent problem with many people ignoring the policies of the city. http://kimatv.com/embed/news/local/...unkyard-property-with-several-code-violations "We've tried to work with the owners; they do not just come here with a hammer [and a warning]," said city code enforcement director Joe Caruso. But a year later, the situation has worsened at a property near South 24th Avenue and Mead Avenue. No more warnings when city officials issued a 'Stop Work' order for a property supervised by Eugene Beni and owned by his mother Ina Mae Weishaar. Several agencies were on the scene for several code violations. "Multiple vehicles, debris, garbage, dismantled cars, open containers, trash," Caruso said. A growing scrap yard, according to the neighbors of Action News spoke out of the camera, with many fearful of retaliation for talking. But now illegal operations have also become part of the mix. City officials said homeowners have been illegally using a lot apart from them to store cars and RVs, with many people living in RVs. A garage behind the car park was also rented, although it was not clean for that. And an unauthorized car repair business on the property, along with contract plumbing work has been closed for operating without licenses. "We've been listening to the neighbors and the complaints," Caruso said. It is our duty to come here. Neighbors said the robbery has increased in the area, with the property blaming people coming and going at all hours. Only two people were at the property Wednesday, but city officials said they have seen several more before. They have been battling the owner of the property since 2009. "We've already fined them $ 5,000, so there's no ceiling," Caruso said. Appointments and misdemeanor fees will be issued if all vehicles are not removed in 48 hours and property is not cleared in 14 days. A jump start in spring cleaning, or legal consequences. City officials said a property has to be designated for use and that the lot in front of the Weishaar property is vacant land owned by the Masonic Lodge.
