pis this new, it's been around pvery long? pno actually, we've been tracking psink holes for folks proactively pcame to property appraisers poffice in past. pand wanted a reduction in there passessment as a result of stigma pfrom seismic activity. pon their property. pbut there really wasn't a formal pway as there had been in phernando, prior to my taking poffice in 2013. pso i worked together with county pcommission particularly pcommissioner high enboth um and pwe passed an ordinance now folks pthat that feel like they may phave type of activity taking lace on their property have to ull a permit for an pinvestigation and kind of starts pthe process of tracking the psinkhole activity from point you pthink you may have it oh point pit's remediated. pdoes everyone now have access pthis information?
pand so folks can go on there pclick on tab, and the pinformation that we have pavailable and again punfortunately it's not 100 ercent complete because there pare cases prior to this pordinance. pin which folks that may have had psome type of activity didn't pactually report it to us. pbut anything that's happened psince ordinance tookt effect is pon there as long a historic pevidence of sink holes in past. pyou can click on there. pcheck your neighborhood, check a iece of property that perhaps pyou're interested in. pand see if there's been activity pthat we know of and it will show pwhether it's remaid ated to best pof our knowledge or whether it's pstill in the process. pbut what do you hope this paccomplishes? pwhat? pwhat's goal of something like pthis? pwell i think, first from a ublic safety standpoint, it's pimportant the folks know if they pare living on piece of property por bought a piece of property or pyou know, thinking about buying pa piece of property, or if pyou're seller or if you're real
pwhether there has been activity por maybe a story next door pneighbor says there to the erson that perspective buyer pyou don't want to buy that phouse, you can look back and see phistorically if there was psomething there or if it had pbeen fixed. preally from standpoint of poverall just a matter of pinformation. pinformation that's available to, pto the folks out there they can ptake look and see whether or not pthere has been activity or erhaps activity within a articular neighborhood. pand we can track it and make psure it was remaid ated pcorrectly. pone we know wean return it to pthe proper evaluation that pshould be after the sinkhole or psubside activity has remediated. pi know obviously in a pneighborhood you learn as you're pbuying piece of property that if pthere has ab problem with sink pholes that's going to change, pyou know, whether or not you buy
pthe value of that property. pbut i mean, it's certainly good pinformation to have out there pthat everybody has access to, pright? p>> sure. pabsolutely. pand again, the interesting thing psomething that happens naturally pthis part of living in florida. plime straight is basically what pwe live on. pand both, you know natural pevents as well man made events pcan affect that over the course pof time if we have a drought and pheavy period of rain afterwards pwe will have sink holes. pand they've been here long pbefore we were even here. pso, but in truth is if you've phad a sinkhole lot of times not peven sinkhole that's sort of a pcatchall activity. pfrom depression to an actual, pyou know sinkhole that we know pabout sometimes they can very pdevastating and damaging and psome cases loss of life is presult of them. pthere's a range of things that pcan happen as a result of it. pso having the information pfrankly once a sinkhole is roperly remediated.
psure tracking it so that the rescribed fix for the activity pis actually what takes place, pand lot of cases property is psafer than it was prior to that. psome cases maybe safer than the pneighboring properties. pso so in that case the value can pgo back to the level that it pshould be. pand perhaps overtime, you know, erhaps the stigma of you know, psinkhole properties can as with psome of other things like pchinese dry wall folks go away povertime. phey, thanks for coming in this pmorning tell us about it go to pyour website and you can get to pit from there. pthanks so much i appreciate it. pgood to see you, take care. phey dave. prussell it is lovely outside pthis morning. pbeautiful blue sky. pwe will go outside a little bit pfor 9 o'clock hour looking pforward to that. p54 degrees at tampa pinternational. p57 in st. petersburg. pnow, don't get me wrong we do phave some spots still in the p40s. pbut drier air at the surface
