Council OK’s Foreclosure List


As we reported on April 7th the town council was taking steps to foreclose on five properties whose owners have been ignoring repeated code violations. On Monday, the town council voted 5-0 to allow town attorney John Herin to move forward and start legal action. Here are the five properties…

Sunset Grill owner Terry Persaud owns two of the five properties on the list. The parking lot adjacent to Sunset grill in Times Square has seven town code enforcement liens recorded against the property, three dating back to March of 2019. Persaud was hit with a fourth lien in June of 2019, the fifth lien was slapped on the property in February of 2020 and the sixth and seventh liens began in March of 2021.
The town also has two liens on Persaud’s restaurant, The Sunset Grill. The first lien began in 2019 and the second lien began in March of 2021.

The town is accusing Persaud of renting beach chairs without a permit, violating the town’s sign ordinance, operating an unapproved parking lot and operating a dumpster without a screen.

The third property the town plans to foreclose on is the Key Estero Shops parking lot. Beach residents know the lot from the $40.00 per day parking signs across from the Sea Gypsy. The town has accused the owner of operating an illegal parking lot and they put a lien on his property in September of 2020.

The fourth property is at 80 Avenue East owned by White Sand Properties. On this property the town has gone after them for working without a permit and having an unsafe structure. The town has three code violations against the property dating back to 2016 and 2019.

The fifth property is 268/270 Nature View Court, owned by Dania Carballo Ortiz and Daisy Garcia. Violations written by the town on this property include work done without permits and renting the property repeatedly for less than 7 days. The town has multiple code violations on this property. Two began in October of 2020 and a third lien was recorded in 2021

On Monday, the town council voted 5-0 to give town attorney John Herin the authority to start foreclosure proceedings on these five properties.


  1. The town should not be able to proceed with foreclosure proceedings if there are current lawsuits by any of theses owners, against the town. Our government should not have the power of retribution. Corruption at its finest.
