The house at 936 S. Water St. 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 Brian Bottger $300 for violating the city's general offense code. The fees were delinquent as of August 2011.
Bridget Susel, acting head of Kent's Community Development Department, said the homeowner was cited for a nuisance complaint regarding a couch located on the front porch.
The 936 S. Water St. house is located next door to another one of the eight properties with deliquent fines that appeared Wednesday on Kent Patch.
