Gentlemen,

Forwarded below is my email and attachments regarding structural damage to my home with Marion County Building Safety:

Michael L. Savage, Sr., MCP, CBO CFPS, CEI-M Director - Building Official Marion County Building Safety

2710

E. Silver Springs Blvd., Ocala, FL 34470

As of today I have not heard back from Oak Run developer Kulbir Ghumman of DECCA, Development and Construction Corporation of America, or his daughter Priya Ghumman, DECCA’s current President, Director, and Registered Agent, according to the attached 2018 Florida Profit Corporation Annual Report.

I am currently making emergency modifications to the rain water discharge system that apparently undermined the column at the front of my home. Then I will make a formal request to DECCA to repair this column pursuant to the Villa Maintenance Program, and may make a claim against DECCA’s contractor policy. My insurance company denied my claim, but said I can make the necessary repairs myself. Thank you.

 

Sincerely,

Neil J. Gillespie

Mr. Savage,

This will acknowledge your email, and is a very brief response to some of the issues you raised.

Since you agree with the Engineer’s evaluation of the column at the front of my home, and the Engineers determination, I direct your department to assist the contractor, DECCA, Development and Construction Corporation of America, or whatever it calls itself now, with the required permits to take the remedial actions necessary to repair said deterioration as noted.

My parents paid DECCA to construct this home in 1993-1994, and at all times pertinent since then, this is a maintained homesite. Attached you will find a letter dated August 16, 1994 from DECCA addressed to my parents, Cornelius & Penelope Gillespie, at 8092 SW 115 Loop Ocala, FL 34481, the subject property. Under the Villa Maintenance Program, DECCA is required to repair cracks and paint the exterior of the home on a five year cycle. In keeping with the industry standard, DECCA is required to repair cracks greater than 3/8 inch in width which are the Builder's responsibility. If at any time the crack in the stucco exceeds 3/8 inch in width, DECCA is required to make the repair. I am providing this notice to DECCA, and ORAL, Oak Run Associates Limited, and the ORHA, Oak Run Homeowners Association, Inc., by and through the persons shown at the end of this email.

During the establishment of Oak Run, DECCA and company officials pled guilty and were convicted of federal crimes for knowingly hunting protected wildlife on the property. Oak Run developer Kulbir Ghumman, and Herbert von Kluge, knowingly hunted protected red-cockaded woodpeckers, see attached, United States v. DECCA/Ghumman, Kulbir, et al. case 87-00013, U.S. District Court, Middle District Florida.

Given Oak Run’s past, I am concerned whether my home was constructed according to code.

For example, attached is a photograph of the column made during construction, which shows the block going into the ground without a foundation. Did this construction comply with the building code in Florida and Marion County in 1993-1994?

For example, I believe virtually every concrete driveway in Oak Run (3,400 homes) is cracked, apparently due to a lack of thermal expansion joints. I invite you to personally inspect the defective driveways in Oak Run and determine the cause of this damage.

On October 30, 2006, my mother Penelope Gillespie, was injured as a result of DECCA's entry door, 11637 SW 90th, Terrace, Ocala, FL, as reported in my letter Nov-27-2006 to James E. Flynn, President, Oak Run Homeowners Association, Inc. (ORHA). When I returned the next day to photograph the apparent code violation, I was assaulted by DECCA employee Emilio Gonzales, who tried to grab my camera, see MCSO report 0610310707.

Currently I am in litigation with a number of parties (RMS v. Gillespie), including the Oak Run Homeowners Association, Inc. (ORHA), and Development & Construction Corporation of America, Inc. (DECCA). I have alleged wrongdoing by DECCA’s successor, Oak Run Associates LTD (ORAL) for

charging post-judgment interest prior to adjudication. This scheme is facilitated by the Marion County Clerk and Comptroller.

Please note, this is a very limited initial response. More to follow.

RE: April 27, 2018 - Emergency Inspection by Marion County Building Safety

Dear Director Savage:

Earlier today Jeanette Borrne, and Donald Hanchar, Inspector, did an emergency inspection of my property as indicated on the attached notice. Jeanette Borrne is not shown on your webpage.

http://www.marioncountyfl.org/departments-agencies/departments-a-n/extension-service/contact-us-copy

As a courtesy, I provided Inspector Donald Hanchar a paper copy of a twenty-one page Damage Assessment Report by M. Shane Johnson, P.E., of Proclaim Engineering. A courtesy PDF version of the report is attached.

I believe your office has a conflict of interest with me regarding building safety issues at the Marion County Judicial Center, 110 NW 1st Ave, Ocala, FL 34475, generally, and specifically with Chad Wicker, Building Manager, for his failure to provide public records, and apparent falsehoods and/or omissions facilitated by Matthew Minter, County Attorney. There may also be a conflict if Jeanette Borrne misrepresented herself as an Inspector. Thank you.

James E. Flynn, President Oak Run Homeowners Association, Inc. (ORHA) PO Box 771612 Ocala, FL 34476

Dear Mr. Flynn,

Thank you for the November 2006 Special Edition ORHA Newsletter. The transcript of the letter from Mr. Carls of Taylor & Carls, P.A. was informative.

My mother, Penelope Gillespie, has resided in Oak Run since 1994, and is one of the original homeowners in neighborhood 13, Woodside Courts. I am her son and primary caregiver, and want to report two incidents that occurred at DECCA's office on October 30 th and 31 st, 2006.

DECCA apparently has a policy requiring a personal visit to the office for routine cable TV service changes. As such I accompanied Penelope to DECCA's office on October 30, 2006 for a 1:00 p.m. scheduled appointment. As Penelope entered the office, she tripped and fell to the floor. DECCA employee Kristina was present. I was able to help Penelope back to her feet, and at the time she seemed all right, but the following morning she awoke in pain and had difficulty walking.

In an effort to rectify the dangerous step that caused my mother to trip and fall, I was directed to DECCA employee Emilio Gonzales. He was hostile, and appeared only interested in whether we intended to sue DECCA. I explained that my concern was the dangerous step. Mom is a nice lady who is not inclined to sue anyone, even though she was injured. She does not want to spend her remaining years in litigation.

Mr. Gonzales was not convinced, and blamed mom for tripping and falling. Then he referenced a lawsuit against McDonald's from a few years ago, litigation over a cup of coffee that burned a customer. Mr. Gonzales drew a parallel between my mom's fall and

James E. Flynn, President Oak Run Homeowners Association, Inc. (ORHA)

Page - 2 November 27,2006

the McDonald's lawsuit, saying people have to take responsibility for their actions. When I told him the step may not meet code (from my experience developing commercial real estate) 11e said my mother should have read the warning sign on the door, and that the sign provided fair warning. When I asked if DECCA's entrance complied with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), he demanded to know if mom was disabled.

Mr. Gonzales and I did not reach a consensus, so I decided to photograph the dangerous step and discuss it with either an attorney or a building inspector. Enclosed are some of the photographs I made. As I was taking the pictures, Mr. Gonzales emerged from DECCA's office to confront me and then grabbed my camera. During the struggle I lost my balance and fell. Law enforcement was summoned. The Marion County Sheriff responded and documented the incident.

I am concerned about the dangerous step to DECCA's office, and what can be done to remedy the problem. In my opinion, the floor should be the same height on either side of the entry threshold, and there should be a hand railing along the steps leading to the entrance door. My other concern is DECCA's apparent disregard for the health and safety of Oak Run's residents. No one from DECCA expressed any concern for my mother's injury; the only concern was if we intended to file suit.

Kindly advise if this matter can be addressed by the ORHA.

Sincerely,

RE: April 27, 2018 - Emergency Inspection by Marion County Building Safety

Dear Director Savage:

 

Earlier today Jeanette Borrne, and Donald Hanchar, Inspector, did an emergency inspection of my property as indicated on the attached notice. Jeanette Borrne is not shown on your webpage.

http://www.marioncountyfl.org/departments-agencies/departments-a-n/extension-service/contact-us-copy

As a courtesy, I provided Inspector Donald Hanchar a paper copy of a twenty-one page Damage Assessment Report by M. Shane Johnson, P.E., of Proclaim Engineering. A courtesy PDF version of the report is attached.

I believe your office has a conflict of interest with me regarding building safety issues at the Marion County Judicial Center, 110 NW 1st Ave, Ocala, FL 34475, generally, and specifically with Chad Wicker, Building Manager, for his failure to provide public records, and apparent falsehoods and/or omissions facilitated by Matthew Minter, County Attorney. There may also be a conflict if Jeanette Borrne misrepresented herself as an Inspector. Thank you.

Kulbir Ghumman,
who was
president and sole shareholder of Development and Construction
Company of America (hereinafter DECCA) and Herbert Von Kluge,
vice
vice president of DECCA met with Arthur Tait, executive/president
of DECCA, and others to
discuss steps necessary to obtain a
development of regional impact order to develop the Oak Run
Subdivision in Ocala, Florida. A development of regional impact
order was an order required to be obtained by developments which
because of their character, magnitude or location would have a
substantial regional effect in the area of development.
In Mayor June of 1985, Kulbir Ghumman and Herbert Von
Kluge were informed
that
the property
owned by DECCA at
Oak Run
contained cavity trees characteristic of an endangered species of
woodpecker, the red cockaded woodpecker. The defendants knew
because of conversations with experts that the discovery of an
endangered woodpecker species on the Oak Run property could
result in set asides of property as endangered species habitat as
well as time delays in approving the development .
On or about May 24, 1985, empibyees of DECCA, removed cavity trees used by the red
On
or

an
employee
of DECCA purchased
shotguns
and
ammunition
which were subsequently used by Ghumman, Von Kluge, and others
acting under their
direction,
for hunting and harassing red
cockaded woodpeckers
at
Oak Run.

After
the

stated
a~ove, DECCA entered
into
a
memorandum of
agreement with
the Florida Game and Fresh Water Fish
Commission in which DECCA agreed
to
fund
a
6-month study
to
determine, among other things, whether red cockaded woodpeckers
were present at the Oak Run site. The study discovered no red
cockaded woodpeckers
at
the
Oak Run site.

Re:

Public Health/Safety Hazard at Gillespie residence 8092 SW 115th Loop Ocala, FL 34481 Proclaim File No. 18049

Via Delivery and U.S. Mail

Dear Mr. Newbanks:

At the request of Security First Insurance Company, an inspection was completed at the Gillespie residence, located at 8092 SW 115th Loop in Ocala, Marion County, Florida. The purpose of our inspection was to determine the origin and cause of reported damage to an exterior column at the residence.

The Gillespie residence is the left unit of a one-story duplex, located at 8092 SW 115th Loop in Ocala, Marion County, Florida. The main structure is generally constructed with concrete masonry unit (CMU) walls covered with painted stucco, presumed wood roof trusses and a shallow foundation system with a concrete slab-on-grade. An attached partially covered porch and garage are located at the front left and front right of the residence, respectively. The floor of the residence is higher than the street elevation and surface drainage to the front street and surrounding properties provides the primary drainage for the property. For the purposes of this report, as a reference, the front of the main residence faces primarily to the south.

During inspection of the exterior column, located at the northwest area of the partially covered porch, we observed hairline to approximate 20.0 mm wide cracks in the upper area of the column, near the column-to-beam interface. Although previous repairs in the form of sealants were observed at the cracks, the damage has apparently worsened over time, including stucco spalling along the cracks, horizontal offsets along the cracks, visible daylight along the cracks and an exposed and corroded area of the column-to-beam connection. Additionally, using a 4-foot bubble level, we determined that the vertical load-carrying column was not plumb.

Notice of Imminent Danger 8092 SW 115 th Loop, Ocala, Florida 34481

February 28, 2018 PROCLAIM File: 18049

Section 202 of the Florida Building Code 5 th Edition (2014), Existing Building defines "dangerous" as: "Any building, structure or portion thereof that meets any of the conditions described below shall be deemed dangerous: 1. The building or structure has collapsed, partially collapsed, has moved off its foundation or lacks the necessary support of the ground. 2. There exists a significant risk of collapse, detachment or dislodgment of any portion, member, appurtenance or ornamentation of the building or structure under service loads."

Inspection revealed that the cracks to the load-carrying exterior column was so severe that the roof framing members no longer provide adequate load-transfer to the column and foundation for the intended roof service load. Thus, the severity of the cracks to the load-carrying column of the structure meets the definition of dangerous, per Section 202 of the Florida Building Code 5th Edition (2014), Existing Building. It is recommended that the column areas that have structural related damage be repaired or replaced as needed and that the c olumn be re-leveled to current Florida Building Code (FBC) requirements; the work must be performed under the supervision of a professional structural engineer and contractor licensed in the State of Florida.

The structural repairs, if performed, shall be designed by a licensed professional engineer registered in the state of Florida who specializes in structural design, approved and permitted by the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ).

This correspondence fulfills my obligations under Florida Statutes 471.033(1)(g) and Florida Administrative Code 61G15-19.001(4) and 61G15-19.001(6)(I).

By copy of this letter, we are notifying our client, Security First Insurance Company and the property owner of the observed conditions.
