Developer won't be charged with destroying burrows

www.marcoeagle.com [cached]

Daniel Buhs, owner of Vanderbilt Bay Construction Inc., is off the hook after a five-month investigation.

"It's not going to be Buhs just because we didn't have enough evidence to proceed against him," Stone said."But charges could be served against others."
...
Buhs and Saco could not be reached for comment.
...
Buhs sought to reduce his $22,000 fine at a July 9 meeting of the Marco Island Code Enforcement Board.
But in a presentation that lasted just two minutes - long enough for city environmental specialist Nancy Richie to present evidence against Buhs - the board voted unanimously to keep the fine in place.
...
Buhs didn't attend the meeting to defend himself or his employees' actions when they began developing a lot at 839 Newell Terrace, located in Marco's elite Estates area.
The excavation resulted in 14 city code citations - 10 for disturbing or removing protected species or habitat and others for failing to follow procedures for a property with protected species on site, removing an active burrow without proper state permits, failing to post state permits on site during construction and failing to ob tain a building permit.
An excavation supervised by city officials and state wildlife officers days after the incident showed 15 burrows were on the lot, 12 of which were active, but no tortoises were found.
Gopher tortoises are protected by state guidelines that list the reptiles as a species of special concern.Property owners must obtain state permits to relocate or remove burrows before developing land.
...
That information included a June 20 letter from Buhs that offered eight reasons the fines should be reduced:
He received a permit to excavate the lot.
A building permit was approved but hadn't been picked up from City Hall.
A state permit to remove the gopher tortoise burrows was issued but hadn't been received.
...
A day after that meeting, Richie - who remained silent as Buhs asked for the reduced fine - countered his arguments in a memo distributed to code enforcement board members.
...
Buhs received less than maximum fines from the board at his February hearing.Under city code, he faced a maximum fine of $71,000 for the 14 violations, equal to $5,000 per violation plus a $1,000 administrative fee.The fine was reduced to $1,500 per violation, plus the $1,000 administrative fee.

Developer denied reprieve from $22,000 fine for destroying gopher tortoise burrows

www.marcoeagle.com [cached]

Daniel Buhs, owner of Vanderbilt Bay Construction Inc., asked for the reduction June 11, and board members agreed to consider the request.

But in a presentation that lasted just two minutes Tuesday night - long enough for city Environmental Specialist Nancy Richie to present evidence against Buhs - the board voted unanimously to keep the fine in place.
...
Buhs didn't attend the meeting to defend himself or his employees' actions when they began developing a lot at 839 Newell Terrace, located in Marco's elite estates area.
The excavation resulted in 14 city code citations - 10 for disturbing or removing protected species or habitat and others for failure to follow procedures for a property with protected species on site, removing an active burrow without proper state permits, failure to post state permits on-site during construction, and failure to obtain a building permit.
An excavation supervised by city officials and state wildlife officers days after the incident showed 15 burrows were on the lot, 12 of which were active, but no tortoises were found.
Gopher tortoises are protected by state guidelines that list the reptiles as a species of special concern.Property owners must obtain state permits to relocate or remove burrows before developing land.
...
That information included a June 20 letter from Buhs that offered eight reasons the fines should be reduced:
He received a permit to excavate the lot. A building permit was approved but hadn't been picked up from City Hall. A state permit to remove the gopher tortoise burrows was issued but hadn't been received.
...
Buhs was told by city officials he didn't need an attorney for his first code violation hearing in February. He never received paperwork to file an appeal or request a new hearing.
A day after the June 11 meeting, Richie - who remained silent as Buhs asked for a reduced fine that day - countered his arguments in a memo distributed to members of the code enforcement board.
...
Buhs received less than maximum fines from the board at the prior hearing.Under city code, he faced a maximum fine of $71,000 for the 14 violations, equal to $5,000 per violation plus a $1,000 administrative fee.The fine was reduced to $1,500 per violation, plus the $1,000 administrative fee, for a total of $22,000.


Developer seeks reduced fine in tortoise burial incident

www.marcoeagle.com [cached]

Daniel Buhs, owner of Vanderbilt Bay Construction Inc., persuaded board members Tuesday, June 11, to consider reducing the fine previously levied.

His appeal was presented as a request for a rehearing, in which the board would reconsider the facts of the case and, potentially, overturn its February decision.The board voted against a rehearing but unanimously agreed to reconsider reducing the fine at a future meeting.A date wasn't set because Buhs must first file a request for the hearing.
City officials recommended the board reject Buhs' request for a rehearing of his case because he missed the 10-day deadline to file for one after the board fined him in February.
Buhs also missed a 30-day window to file an appeal to Circuit Court.
"Mr. Buhs believes that because the city did not inform him of his appeal rights, his due process rights have been compromised," wrote Greg Niles, city community development director in a memo to the board.
...
Buhs called the $22,000 fine "excessive for what will eventually be proven to be a fact that no turtles were injured."
The fine was the result of a series of missteps in his company's excavation of 839 Newell Terrace on Feb. 1 to build a home.Buhs failed to obtain a building permit or state permits to relocate or remove 10 state- protected tortoise burrows.
Violations against Buhs included 10 citations for disturbing or removing protected species or habitat, failure to follow procedures for a property with protected species on site, re moving an active burrow without proper state permits, failure to post state permits on site during construction, and failure to obtain a building permit.
Days after the illegal excavation, city officials and state wildlife officers supervised an environmental consultant Buhs hired.The consultant, who attempted to locate any signs of tortoises on the property, estimated there were 15 burrows on the lot, 12 of which were active, but no tortoises were found.
If Buhs gets a reduced fine, it will be the second time the board has shown leniency on him.Under city code, Buhs had faced a maximum fine of $71,000 on 14 violations - $5,000 per violation plus a $1,000 administrative fee - at the February hearing.Board members instead fined him $22,000, charging him $1,500 per violation, plus the $1,000 administrative fee.
...
In contrast, city officials previ ously urged the board to make an example of Buhs as a message to negligent developers who excavate property without permits for dealing with state- protected species.
...
Buhs may still face state charges from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.Agency officials couldn't be reached to verify if any charges have been filed.
The board also acted on three other cases:
