The house at 615 Crain Ave. is one of eight properties with delinquent fines owed the city that will be passed on to the county to be added to the property tax bill.
The city fined owner Sharie Meduri $300 for violation of the city's property maintenance code. The fees were delinquent as of August 2011.
Bridget Susel, acting head of Kent's Community Development Department, said the long-vacant home at the corner of Crain and Miller avenues has multiple property maintenance issues.
These include an overall lack of exterior maintenance, roof deterioration, crumbling eaves and a deteriorated back porch door that doesn’t stay closed.
Susel said evidence was noted from the exterior of a possible animal infestation inside the house, with raccoons being the likely suspects.
