When humans have less rights than dogs: gentrification

Los Angeles – It seems to be a common cry of those against gentrification that people with dogs seem to claim rights and privileges for their dogs and ignore the rights of human beings around them. Here are some of the dog laws [and complaints].

More Dog Complaints filed against 1522 Hi Point Street Apts

Los Angeles – The City Animal Control has requested additional complaints be filed against tenants at 1522 Hi Point St Apartments. Five complaints have been filed and copies forwarded to all City Council members, subject to a CPRA request if the Public needs copies. Redacted copies are posted here.

Animal Services has said it has trouble determining how many animals are on the property so neighbors have leafletted the areas asked residents to keep track of how many animals enter the property and contact Animal Services. Animal Services is refusing to respond to complaints and refusing to release Publics Records that would show which dogs are licensed on the property.

Between June 24 and June 29, five additional Animal Complaints were filed with animal services. Each complaint is about twenty pages long. The complaints are against tenant 1 (barking dogs, dogs not on a leash, unlicensed animals, too many animals (LAMC section 53.50(a); tenant 4  (barking dog, unlicensed animal); tenant 18 (barking dog, unlicensed animal); tenant 1 Doggone Cindy’s Dog Walking Service (barking dogs, dogs not on a leash, unlicensed animals, too many animals- LAMC section 53.50(a); Hi Point Apts LLC (barking dogs, dogs not on leash, unlicensed animals, too many animals – LAMC section 53.50(a).

Copies of the complaints were received by the City by email and also delivered by certified mail on June 29, 2018 at 12:26 pm USPS tracking number 9514800011778178000018.

DEAR Brenda Barnette, Tammy Watson, Melissa Webber, Larry Gross, Olivia E. Garcia, Layne Dicker, Alisa Finsten, Roger Wolfson:

I have received your letter dated June 15, 2018. Attached your letter with eight pages from me to you.

You allege that I need to “one address per letter/complaint”. Without waiving the fact that all complaints are in regards to one address, i.e 1522 Hi Point St Apts 90035, I will comply with your request and attach the following separate complaints:

  1. Against 1522 Hi Point St, an 18 unit building owned by Hi Point Apts LLC
  2. Against tenant unit 1
  3. Against tenant unit 18
  4. Against tenant unit 4
  5. Against Doggone Cindy’s Dog Walking Service operated by Tenant 1

I note here there is no evidence that you have responded to my CPRA requests in a timely manner.

These complaints are based on all communications from me received by Animal Services, regardless of form or content, and all such communications are included by each complaint by reference. “Communications” includes voicemails, faxes, and letters to your department. My complaints since around April 2017 have been hampered by the fact the city animal services has refused to comply with CPRA request to identify all licensed animals on the property. The city animal services previously issued a citation number 019168 regarding this property. My complaints therefore about unlicensed dogs are made on information and belief.

All emails listed are emails from myself to the city government concerning animal complaints.

The city council is herein requested to place this entire package onto the agenda for the next available council meeting under “Communications from the Public”.

Sincerely yours,

Dogs Not Allowed on Private Property of Others

Re Dogs: The Los Angeles County Animal Care and Control laws section under Nuisance (10.40.060) states “Animal defecation on public property or upon private property other than that of the owner’s property is prohibited”. Editor note: this law may only apply to unincorporated areas of the County,  not to cities like Los Angeles. But Los Angeles may have a similar law or may have dual jurisdiction.

This is the text of one of a number of voicemails left today for Officer Rodriquez at Animal Services.

“This is (tenant 9 name) again to Officer Rodriquez at 213-485-0496 and today is June 17 2018 regarding Animal complaints at 1522 Hi Point St Apts 90035. My phone is (redacted).

“The dog owned by tenant unit 18 is a large black dog. Tenant number one, Cynthia Ogan and Darren Navis own a dog sitting and boarding business run out of this building so myself and neighbors have seen upwards of six animals at one time in and out of her unit. I have seen a medium sized light brown short haired dog, a large black dog, and a white medium sized poodle looking dog under the control of unit 1. I believe tenant 4 also has a medium sized black dog. As previously requested, I would like the building owner Barratt cited for allowing animals not on a leash and also the individual animal owners cited/warned. Ogan and Navis also own vehicles parked in stalls #12,13, and 17 and I have seen dog boarding cages stored under the vehicles, and in the cabinet where the building power supply is. The many dogs under Ogan’s control can be seen at websites including Yelp Doggone Cindy’s Dog Walking Service. The city worker I emailed recently is Mary Fiscal. My concerns are excessive barking, dogs in the common areas not on a leash, dogs on the premises in excess of the zoning ordinance, and animals on the premises without being licensed. The building owner is Walter Barratt at 310-367-8175. The entry code to the building front and back is (redacted).  The owner Barratt charges $500 deposit and animals must be listed on the rental agreement. I saw Ogan and Navis on the property today with four or more dogs even though she claims her dog business is closed on Sundays. Ogan as resident manager is responsible to know which tenants on the property have animals including but not limited to unit 1, 4, 15, and 18. This is (tenant 9 name redacted) at (phone redacted).”

This is in response to the email from [city employee] Maria Fiscal of January 18, 2018 in which she provided animal records only in reference to Cynthia Ogan at the address 1522 Hi Point St 90035. It is already proven that Ogan operates a dog boarding business at this address, thus the allegation form city reports that she only has one dog under her control is incorrect on the part of the city.

I am renewing my CPRA request for Animal Services records, such requests which were made January 23, 2018 by email, January 15, 2018 by email.

I need:

I need copies of all records from October 18 2017 to today regarding animals at this property or records of all animal owners living at this property with an animal

For the same time period I need copies of all permits and licenses for any animals/owners registered at this address 1522 Hi Point St 90035 APN 5068018035

I need copies of all records from same time period for any dogs registered/licensed to Cynthia Ogan, Darren Navis, as well as any licenses and dog permits for a business named Doggone Cindy’s Dog Walking services and records for any businesses owned by Cynthia Ogan licensed in Los Angeles

Based on information and belief, other than my own unit 9, all tenants have animals on this property. That is 18 units with the exception of unit 9. Therefore this complaint is against all tenants/units until such time the city animal services verifies to me which units contain animals and animal owners.

When I say I need “all records”, it includes all emails and inter-office emails in the possession of animal services regarding this address.

It appears from city records that there are numerous animals on the property that are not licensed or registered to an owner at this address. This is then a complaint against all animal owners at this property whose animals are not licensed.

This is also a complaint against the owner of the property, Hi Point Apts LLC.

Pursuant to the claim for damages against the City, your department has failed to act with the required due diligence, a violation of CC 815.6.

There is no information that you supplied me any information on Doggone Cindy’s Dog Walking Service, which is clearly advertised on the internet; apparently according to you, such business is not licensed in this zoned area.

This email is in response to a call from city Animal Services Officer Rodriquez at 213-485-0496 on May 3, 2018.

Officer Rodriquez asked for a description of the dogs on the premises.

I hope that information has been provided in emails/letters to Animal Services dated May 7, 2018 at 12:48 pm, May 21, 2018 at 10:20 pm and June 9, 2018 to Ashley Rodriquez, city employee.

Further, the entry code to the building is [redacted]. This will give you access to the interior as well as the parking area. You may also wish to call Jade Beck or Walter Barratt, owner Hi Point Apts LLC, at 310- 367-8175 or the resident manager Ogan at 310-406-4075.

Further, the dog owned by tenant unit 18 is a large black dog. Tenant number one, Cynthia Ogan and Darren Navis own a dog sitting and boarding business run out of this building so myself and neighbors have seen upwards of six animals at one time in and out of her unit. I have seen a medium sized light brown short haired dog, a large black dog, and a white medium sized poodle looking dog. I believe tenant unit 4 also has a medium sized black dog. I have seen customers of the dog walking service drop their dogs off in the morning and pick them up at night. I have seen the dogs enter the premises in the two vans of Ogan and Navis that are usually parked at stall #17, a red van and a white van, pictures previously supplied to Animal Services. I believe Ogan at one time told Animal Services she only owned one small white dog but that statement was not true because numerous dogs have been seen under her control on the property. As previously requested, I would like the building owner Barratt cited for allowing animals not on a leash and also the individual animal owners cited/warned. Just a few days ago I had to hurry down the hallway in fear of being bit after unit 1 Darren Navis excited the unit with the medium sized brown dog that was not on a leash and was following me; Navis quickly got him onto a leash in the hallway before the dog could get to me. This was very frightening. Myself and my quests should not have to be afraid to walk down the hallway because dogs run freely. I am forced for my own protection to carry a camera with me at all times to document these dogs. Ogan and Navis also own vehicles parked in stall #12 and #13 and I have seen dog boarding cages stored under the vehicles, in the hallway closet near the rear door, and in the cabinet where the building power supply is. If all the dogs are licensed in the building, then the city should already have the dog owners names and addresses and dog names that live in this building.

Last, the extent of Ogan’s Dog business must be taken into account because those are the numerous dogs in and out of the property. If you internet search Doggone Cindy’s Dog Walking Service and also see Yelp you will see the pictures of the dogs under Ogan’s control, which is a lot of dogs. Recently Ogan threatened to sue me because I complained about the excessive number of barking dogs on the property.

 

See attached search. Also see Ogan’s Yelp site for lots of pictures: Doggone Cindy’s Dog Walking Service

West Los Angeles Shelter; 11361 West Pico Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90064; (310) 207-3156

Dear Animal Services:

I will attempt herein to provide more specifics than before. At all times the owner was aware of the animal problems on the property because the resident manager Cynthia Ogan lives less than six feet from my unit front door. The front door of the unit is the only exit from the unit. There are 18 units in this building, box style [not garden style] with nine units on each floor, and a rear exit.

The owner has advertised that only small dogs are allowed on the premises and accompanied by owner. But there are numerous medium and large dogs on the premises and not accompanied by their owner. I write this complaint because there has been no response from the owner, Jade Beck, or Cynthia Ogan. See attached picture of the hallway with unit 9 on the left and unit 1 on the right.

Witnesses to the animals in the building include all tenants, whose names I can supply to Animal Services if needed. I did witness tenant Tyler Ruggieri (unit 8) complain to Ogan about the dog barking and dogs running down the hallway not on a leash.

I believe there are other dogs in the building besides those of unit 18, and unit 1, as well as tenant unit 4. I do hear what appears to be a small dog barking in the hallway for what seems ten minutes sometimes; the dog appears to be at the end of the hallway. I don’t know why the dog would be just standing in the hallway for ten minutes barking, all noise is “unreasonably annoying, disturbing, offensive, or which unreasonably interferes with the comfortable enjoyment of life or property” of myself.

(i) the nature, frequency and volume of the noise;
(ii) the tone and repetitiveness; (iii) the time of day or night;
(iv) the distance from the complaining or affected party or parties; (v) the number of neighbors affected by or complaining about the noise;
(vi) any other relevant evidence demonstrating that the barking is unduly disruptive; and
(vii) whether the dog is being provoked.

There are dogs running down the hallway without being on a leash, large dogs which sounds like a hoard of elephants because instead of carpeting, the halls are lined with tile which amplifies the noise, and the walls are thin. This is mostly one to two dogs I believe under the control of unit 1 tenants, because the dogs come from the end of the hallway and stop and enter at unit 1 door. I can clearly distinguish a dog running down the hallway from a dog on a leash. There is barking from what seems to be at least four dogs, two at a time that enter/exit unit 1. I have seen as many as six dogs under tenant unit 1 control on the property. I can clearly identify at least four dogs because I see them walk them out of their apartment, and I see unit 1 walk them into her unit. I also see them walking the dogs in the parking lot, often not on a leash.

The running dogs not on a leash and the barking occurs when unit 1 walks the dogs which appears to be at least 3 times a day so between 6:30 am to 8:30 am, sometime in the afternoon if they are home (unit 1 or others), and then again about 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 at night. The animal activity is mostly happening weekdays, or whenever unit 1 walks in and out with her dogs. However on weekends there is dog barking from the large dog in unit 18 who is right above me. Large dog to me would be a German Shepard; extra large would be St Bernard. I have personally seen all the dogs on the premises at one time or another, but since unit one has a hoard of dogs with her service operating out of the building, I miss the identification of numerous animals that appear on her websites. I have seen dogs dropped off in the morning and I have seen dogs picked up in the evening, all from the tenants unit 1 and their dog service customers. Sometimes numerous dogs and tenants unexpectedly meet up in the hallway and spend a few minutes barking at the front door.

The dog kept by unit 18, located on the second floor right above me, will bark when other dogs are going down the hallway which would be daily, and bark when the hallways are being washed which is about weekly I believe. The dog of unit 18 is a large dog so has a large bark which I can clearly hear anywhere in my unit because the walls are thin. Sometimes the dog may be barking because of the cat in unit 8, which the cat does not bother me or bark. At the same location as where I sit in the living room which is near the door, the barking dog is right above my head. I have trouble reading, talking on the phone, or watching TV when the unit 18 dog is barking. The unit 18 barking dog occurs weekdays and on weekends.

The photo attached serves to help show the distance of the animal noise. I think it reasonable if tenant #4, and I believe #14 (if he is still here) walk their dogs and I rarely hear any barking. The barking is coming from unit 18 animals, and unit 1 animals.

 

The interior mailbox can be seen in front of unit 1 in the picture. Thus there is sometimes a lot of activity at the front door with people entering/exiting, checking their mail, walking the dogs, and on top of this the customers of the dog service coming into the hallway. I expect a certain amount of noise under the circumstances, but it becomes unnecessarily excessive when all that noise occurs at once and people stand there with four or more dogs barking at once which will happen daily or a few times a week depending on what time it is. Then amongst all that activity, at times I have to exit and enter my own door, along with Amazon delivery and UPS and Fed ex in the hallway also.

So you can see the distance of the dogs not on a leash, and dogs barking and entering and exiting unit one, are less than five feet from my doorway. If I am in the living area which is daily other than eating and sleeping, I will get the brunt of the noise from the activity at the front door and unit one. There is also tenants who run up and down the stairway right next to my unit (to the left of the front of the picture) but that noise I can live with since it is not loud noise like the dogs barking. Yes, sometimes the same tenant dogs are on the front sidewalk barking sometimes for over twenty minutes.

Maybe tenants should muzzle the dogs when walking them down the hallways and parking lot common areas.

For purposes of this section, the term “excessive noise” shall mean noise which is unreasonably annoying, disturbing, offensive, or which unreasonably interferes with the comfortable enjoyment of life or property of one or more persons occupying property in the community or neighborhood, within reasonable proximity to the property where the dog or dogs are kept. Factors that the Department may use to determine whether the barking is excessive may include, but are not limited to, the following: (i) the nature, frequency and volume of the noise; (ii) the tone and repetitiveness; (iii) the time of day or night; (iv) the distance from the complaining or affected party or parties; (v) the number of neighbors affected by or complaining about the noise; (vi) any other relevant evidence demonstrating that the barking is unduly disruptive; and (vii) whether the dog is being provoked. The provisions of this section shall not apply to any commercial animal establishment permitted by zoning law. The Department is responsible for enforcement of the provisions of this section as follows: (Amended by Ord. No. 185,021, Eff. 8/6/17.)”

What was segregation like in America in 1930?

“The Jim Crow laws stated that white people and black people must live separately and that churches, theaters, hospitals and schools must be separated by race. The Klu Klux Klan was also active during this time and they terrorized black people as well as immigrants, Jews, Roman Catholics, communists and socialists. They were a white anglo-saxon protestant group that still exists today. They would tar and feather people as well as hang, rape, murder and lynch people from these minority groups.The southern states also took it upon themselves to make it difficult for African Americans to vote. They imposed a poll tax where a person had to pay in order to cast a vote. Most black people could not afford this tax and therefore could not vote. They also implemented literacy tests that had to be completed to vote. If a black person passed the test then they were beaten and harassed to keep them from voting.”

To whom it may concern:

There continue to be dog owners/guests in the building allowing their animals to roam the common areas parking lot and hallways without being on a leash. This has been reported numerous times to the owner and the resident manager and the Animal Services. While the apartment may be considered in the temporary “possession” of the tenant, the tenant does not have temporary possession of the common areas as those premises are owned by someone other than the tenant; thus the tenant cannot claim the common areas are their premises for purposes of walking an animal without a leash.

I am a senior citizen and Black American.

“I ask that Animal Services impound all dogs under the control of tenants at unit one, tenants at unit 18, and this will include dogs under tenants unit one control, such dogs whose owners do not reside at the property”

See attached email of May 15, 2018 at 3:14 pm entitled “rent agreement obligations” for the sections pertinent to annoying and disturbing dog barking on the premises by dogs not on a leach, and by dogs whose owners do not reside on the property and by the dog boarding business operated by tenants out of unit one, Cynthia Ogan. Based on information and belief, tenants units one and eighteen are White.

I ask that Animal Services schedule an administrative hearing for this Complaint against animal owners in unit one and unit 18 and against property owner Hi Point Apts LLC, 14 Ozone Avenue Venice CA 90291. Pending the date of that hearing, I ask that Animal Services impound all dogs under the control of tenants at unit one, tenants at unit 18, and this will include dogs under tenants unit one control, such dogs whose owners do not reside at the property. For the names of the dog owners who do not reside at the property you should contact tenant unit one who has a list because those dog owners are her business customers.

 

By way of this letter I ask the HUD to suspend all federal funding to the City of Los Angeles pending review of these matters for racial inequity practiced by local government employees, such matters under the jurisdiction of Ben Carson, United States Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. I ask HUD to conduct a review of these matters included in the May 15 2018 email attached.

To whom it may concern:

There continue to be dog owners/guests in the building allowing their animals to roam the common areas parking lot and hallways without being on a leash. This has been reported numerous times to the owner and the resident manager and the Animal Services. While the apartment may be considered in the temporary “possession” of the tenant, the tenant does not have temporary possession of the common areas as those premises are owned by someone other than the tenant; thus the tenant cannot claim the common areas are their premises for purposes of walking an animal without a leash.

I remind you that a dog that bites a tenant can be quickly put down, but a tenant or guest bit by a dog will suffer a permanent injury, and I am sure anyone bitten by a dog will go after the property owner, the city, and the dog owners for medical damages. I also remind you that I have frequently seen tenants exist their door and scare an unsuspecting animal in the hallway; this could definitely cause the animal to be surprised and bite the tenant/guest.

“…all dogs must be on a leash….”

Please advise all tenants in writing that all dogs must be on a leash in the common areas or they could face eviction and criminal charges.

Please advise all owners of all animals on the property that dog boarding is not permitted on this property; some of the owners of some dogs on the property do not reside at this address.

 

Dogs who are on the property without their legal owners are disturbing my peaceful enjoyment of the property.

The vehicles used for business purposes are disturbing my peaceful enjoyment of the premises.

This [above] is part of an email/fax previously sent April 25, 2018 at 10:40 pm. The issues have not been resolved. Any voice messages you have left for me are not acceptable as a resolution.

“…abandoned vehicle stall #13….”

1. I have previously complained thru communications to public officials that the abandoned vehicle stall #13 on the property possibly is being used for illegal storage of drugs or dog boarding equipment. I attach a picture of dog boarding supplies being illegally stored in the cabinet where the power supply is located; this picture was previously supplied to code enforcement. I have received no word from the owner that the dog boarding supplies have been removed.

2. The commercial vehicles of “Doggone Cindy’s Dog Boarding Service” continue to be illegally stored on the property. Dog boarding owner and tenant Cynthia Ogan and Darren Navis park five vehicles on the property; I have witnessed that at least two vehicles are used for dog boarding purposes. Ogan and Navis cannot possibly drive more than two vehicles at a time; that means that three vehicles are here illegally.

“…The parking lot is also not a storage facility or a used car lot business…”

3. The two vehicles —vans — used for business purposes of illegal dog boarding need to be removed from the property. The vehicles are located in stalls 12, 13, and 17, and are owned/operated by Cynthia Ogan/Darren Navis. The parking lot is also not a storage facility or a used car lot business.

Williams Real Estate Advisors, Inc. of Santa Monica

Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce
Hi Point Apts LLC
Mayor Eric Garcetti and Council, et al:

To whom it may concern:

1. There is still a non­working abandoned vehicle at stall #13. See the attached picture. Please remove the vehicle pursuant to a code enforcement complaint. The parking lot is not a storage area for the abandoned vehicles of white tenants.

2. The Police have informed me that I may use mace on any dog found in the parking lot and common areas that is not on a leash.

3. There is debris at the front of stall seventeen (17). The parking lot is not a storage area. Please have the debris removed as it represents a hazard and nuisance.

4. I understand that unit one [Ogan and Navis] are operating a dog boarding business out of the building and do not have a workers comp policy, do not have insurance, and are not bonded. Please investigate and let me know the results of your findings.

5. The intercom is still not useable at unit #9 and we still are paying the unfair city mandated $17.08 per month reimbursement for the new intercom system but non­ working intercom unit 9

Again today ­­­at about 6:00 pm­­­ my exit from the unit was obstructed by dogs in the hallway not on a leash. Being that I had to wait for the dogs to pass, I was delayed in getting to work.

I am asking that the building owner, management company, resident manager [they are dogs under her control] take efforts to make sure dogs are on a leash at all times in the common areas and parking lot.

I am also asking animal control city to either impound the dogs, ascertain the owners, and fine the owners for not having the dogs on a leash.

If the Police and animal control cannot take efforts against the dogs and their owners, I will handle things in the best way I know how to eliminate the nuisance and negligent obstruction to my free passage in the hallways.

THE DOGS NEED TO BE ON A LEASH AT ALL TIMES. I ask that the Police knock on every tenants door to ascertain who has dogs in the building.

Some apartments like 1522 Hi Point St Apts 90035 require that when in the “common areas and grounds” [hallways and parking lot] dogs must be accompanied by their owner and pets cannot be on the premises unless they are on the original rent agreement. Sounds like good privileges for humans, but only if management and the Police/animal control actually enforce the rules. Both the LA County and the City of Los Angeles limit the number of dogs and cats that may be kept at any residence: four [county incorporated] and city of Los Angeles is three. Dog kennels/boarding are prohibited in certain areas due to zoning requirements. Barking dogs can constitute a nuisance and bring punishment of $1,000 and/or six months in jail. [LA County Code 10.40.065.] A dog that trespasses on private property can be considered a nuisance. Usually a business license to service pets must be prominently displayed.

Every dog must be licensed. [LAMC section 53.15(e)] Every dog must have a rabies certificate [LAMC section 53.24]. Dog owners need to provide proof of exemption or dog sterilization. [LAMC section 53.15.2(b)(2)] The City of Los Angeles Department of Animal Services can be reached at (888) 452-7381. Be forewarned: many times Animal Services tends to act in an unfair, unjust, and capricious manner with utter disregard to their duties as a law enforcement agency.  Government employees also tend to either ignore tenant privileges under the rent agreement or illegally misconstrue the rent agreement in unjust favor to the property owner. [See 42 USC section 1981.]

DATE: Wednesday, December 20, 2017 10:28 AM

To whom it may concern:

1. Attached is a google search for “dog boarding doggone cindy” which shows the websites claiming dog boarding by tenant Cynthia Ogan, resident manager at Hi Point Apts. The ads say the business is open 24 hours per day so it should not be hard for the city employees to find Ogan and the dogs.

2. Attached is a Dec 3 picture showing two dog boarding vehicles at this premises with the signs on the vehicles.

3. I understand that previously the city animal control investigator report said that Ogan “could not substantiate” that her dog boarding vehicles are on the premises.

4. I would ask that the animal control make a diligent effort to ascertain when Ogan has the dogs on the premises; she has them on the premises at least two to three times per day, and the times are consistent.

5. Attached is a closeup of the Ogan van so you can see the sign clearly says “dog sitting” at Ogan’s “house”.

6. From city records, the only dog licensed is Zena A1621546 at this premises for unit 1.

7. I request copies of all dog licenses for all tenant dogs on the premises, including any proof of rabies certifications and certifications of spraying and neutering. I particularly want copies of any dog licenses and rabies certification for any dogs under Ogan’s control that she or her roommate/employees bring on the premises at any time. In order to ascertain which tenants of the 18 units have dogs, the city will have to contact the property owner and the management company.

8. I request copies of any bond and insurance or the bond and insurance contact information for Doggone Cindy’s Dog Walking Service.

9. This complaint is also against the property owner Hi Point Apts LLC as well as the property management company Williams Real Estate Advisors, Inc. whose emails are provided above.

10. Other than 1522 Hi Point St, please provide any other city address where Ogan/employees are storing/boarding dogs/animals.

11. I request that the city revoke Ogan’s business license on the grounds that the city report shows she denied having a dog boarding business [vehicles] on the premises, which constitutes illegal fraud.

THIS IS A CITY RENT  CONTROLLED BUILDING

City of Los Angeles Department of Animal Services HCIDLA Central Regional Office 3550 Wilshire Blvd Suite 1500 Los Angeles, CA 90010

To whom it may concern:

I attach the following including emails about the dog violations: (1) code enforcement animal complaint dated Jan 2, 2017 – 607340 (2) email dated April 29, 2017 at 3:07 pm (3) Letter May 18, 2017 to West Los Angeles Animal Shelter w/o attachment (4) email September 18, 2017 at 9:51 pm.

  1. The property owner Hi Point Apts, LLC and management company Williams Real Estate Advisors I believe are illegally allowing two commercial vehicles to park on residential property, namely two vehicles for the “Doggone Cindy Dog Boarding” Business.
  2. Your officer Wall —I have read—visited the property recently and spoke with tenant Cynthia Ogan. The other dog boarder at the property is tenant #1 Darren Navis. Officer Wall’s report indicated that as a law enforcement official with police power, he did not conduct a diligent effort to ascertain the dogs boarded at the property since (1) he knowingly pre-arranged a visit with Ogan for a day that her dog business would be closed, a violation of Wall’s oath and duties of enforcement and (2) Wall’s report indicates he never sought to ascertain how many dogs Ogan and Navis have under their control as part of their business operated on the property Monday thru Saturday; Wall never ascertained the names and licenses of the other dogs under Ogan and Navis’s control.

3. There is no indication from Wall’s report that he spoke with the owner of the property or the management company for the property.

                “…There is no indication from Wall’s report                        that he spoke with the owner of the property…”


4. Owner Walter Barratt [Hi Point Apts LLC] can be reached at (310)895-6693 and the management company at 310-987-7978.


5. In 2014, the owner of the property said, as I note below and in past emails, no pets are allowed on the premises unless they are on the original rent agreement, and all pets on the property must be accompanied by their owners when in the common areas and on the grounds.


6. The dogs under unit 1’s control should be on a leash when they are in the common areas and in the common parking area; I have witnessed the dogs are frequently not on a leash as already indicated to you via email, and specially the dogs that are not owned by Ogan and Navis.


7. The report by Wall failed to ascertain that dogs under Ogan’s control are not on the rent agreement, and Wall’s report failed to ascertain that all dogs under Ogan/Navis control are not accompanied by their owner when in the common areas.

      “All dogs should be accompanied by owners when in        the common areas and grounds of the building                   where dog fouling is not permitted.”

As I have previously stated by email:  The property owner has stated: “No person or pets are allowed to occupy the premises other than those listed on the original rent agreement without the prior written consent of the owner.” “All dogs should be accompanied by owners when in the common areas and grounds of the building where dog fouling is not permitted.”

Thus tenants Cynthia Ogan and Darren Navis, operating a dog boarding business at the property, are breaking the rules and I request they be removed as management because: (1) the city code enforcement claims that Ogan only has one dog registered to her as owner (2) therefore since only one dog would be listed in her rent agreement then the other three or more dogs under her control are not listed in the rent agreement and is a violation of the rules (3) since Ogan only owns one dog, then the other three or more dogs under her control are on the grounds of the building but not accompanied by their owners, another violation of the house rules.

All the dogs that are on the property without their owners are on the property illegally.

The RSO [RSD]  is requested to remove Ogan as manager because she has not maintained the premises i.e. intercom unit 9 remains dilapidated and in need of maintenance, and because Ogan has dogs on the property that are subject to impound because they are not accompanied by their owner and they are pets that are not listed on unit 1’s rent agreement.

This is a rent controlled building

To whom it may concern:

* It is my believe that WREA released the names of Hi Point Apt tenants to the public agency RSD for public dissemination.
* ”In the United States the right to petition is guaranteed by the
First Amendment to the United States Constitution, which specifically prohibits Congress from abridging “the right of the people…to petition the Government for a redress of grievances“.” I have a right as an American to petition city Los Angeles employees for a redress of my grievances.
* Is tenant #1 Darren Navis authorized responsible for maintenance at the property? I have seen him recently working for hours on the closing mechanism for the front door; I was not aware he is part of the maintenance crew or the assigned resident manager.

* The LADBS, RSD, and code enforcement as well as the LA County Public Health Department, are considered to be law enforcement agencies, whose records are subject to a CPRA request, which in this case would include the names and rent amounts of all tenants at Hi Point Apts.

* Re Dogs at Hi Point Apts: (2015) House rules: “No person or pets are allowed to occupy the premises other than those listed on the original rent agreement without the prior written consent of the owner.” “All dogs should be accompanied by owners when in the common areas and grounds of the building where dog fouling is not permitted.” Thus tenants Cynthia Ogan and Darren Navis, operating a dog boarding business at the property, are breaking the rules and I request they be removed as management because: (1) the city code enforcement claims that Ogan only has one dog registered to her as owner (2) therefore since only one dog would be listed in her rent agreement then the other three or more dogs under her control are not listed in the rent agreement and is a violation of the rules (3) since Ogan only owns one dog, then the other three or more dogs under her control are on the grounds of the building but not accompanied by their owners, another violation of the house rules.

* I am reporting the dog violations on the property because the house rules say, “please inform the manager if you witness them [rules] being broken.”
* All the dogs that are on the property without their owners are on the property illegally.
