Environmental Health Letters Sent to Property Owners in Error
On December 31, 2020, City staff inadvertently mailed letters regarding a notice to comply for Onsite Wastewater Treatment System (OWTS) operating permits to 1,047 homeowners. The City was notified of this error by concerned property owners on January 4, 2021. Staff has reviewed each letter that was sent and has verified that there has been no change in ownership on these properties. The notices have been removed from the City’s Environmental Health tracking system. Staff is currently in the process of sending a follow-up letter to all affected property owners to notify them directly.
The City apologizes for this regrettable mistake and any undue concern these letters may have caused. Property owners are encouraged to reach out to Environmental Sustainability Director/Building Official Yolanda Bundy at (310) 456-2489, ext. 229 or via email at YBundy@malibucity.org to address any questions they may have about the letter they received or the status of their property’s Onsite Wastewater Treatment System.
