NOTIFICATION OF INTENT TO OBTAIN CUSTODY. Per RCW 79.100, San Juan County intends to take custody of an abandoned approximately 20-ft sailboat, lacking a mast and without registration identification (DVRP No. SJ20-006) on August 15, 2020 (Custody Date). San Juan County took emergency temporary possession of the vessel after it was reported adrift in Blind Bay off of Shaw Island and having collided with other boats. While in temporary possession, San Juan County has towed this vessel and secured it at the County dock at Orcas Village, Orcas Island. After taking custody, San Juan County may use or dispose of this vessel without further notice. To retain custody of the vessel, before the Custody Date, the owner must: 1) Pay San Juan County for costs incurred to date, and 2) Move the vessel to an anchorage area, moorage facility, or storage location that authorizes the vessel, or remove the vessel from the water. To redeem the vessel once San Juan County has taken custody, the owner must file a written request (one original and one copy) for a hearing with the Pollution Control Hearings Board, in person at 1111 Israel Rd, Ste. 301, Tumwater WA, 98501 or by mail to PO Box 40903, Olympia WA 98504-0903, and serve one copy on San Juan County at 915 Spring Street, P.O. Box 729, Friday Harbor, Washington, 98250. The appeal must include the following information: a copy of the decision you are appealing; your name and address (mailing and legal, if different) and, if applicable, the name and address of your representative; a daytime phone number; a brief statement why you are appealing; a statement of what you want the Board to do; the signature of you or your representative. [This signature certifies that the content of the appeal is true.] The written request can be submitted immediately but cannot be filed any later than September 14, 2020 (Appeal Date). The right to a hearing is deemed waived if a request is submitted late, and the owner is liable for any costs owed to San Juan County. These costs may include all administrative costs incurred by San Juan County, removal and disposal costs, and costs associated with environmental damages directly or indirectly caused by the vessel. In the event of litigation, the prevailing party is entitled to reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs. San Juan County reserves the right to pursue any other remedies available under law.
