CITY HALL — A criminal complaint filed by Glendale officials against a city commissioner have been dismissed after he brought his vacant property into compliance with city codes.
City officials in May filed a 19-count criminal complaint against Civil Service Commissioner Sam Manoukian, who is not related to Councilman Rafi Manoukian, and several business partners who own a property at 900 W. Glenoaks Blvd. The complaint alleged that the property had fallen into disrepair.
In the complaint, filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, city attorneys listed municipal code violations at the “dilapidated” property, ranging from the accumulation of junk and debris to failing to maintain proper landscaping.
City code inspectors first opened a case for the property in June 2009 in response to complaints from area residents, officials said.
The recent criminal case was dismissed last week after the property was brought into compliance, said Yvette Neukian, deputy city attorney for code enforcement.
