Criminal complaint filed against Glendale official for alleged code violations

Glendale officials have filed criminal actions against Commissioner Sam Manoukian to bring property into compliance with city codes.

A 19-count criminal complaint has been filed against a Glendale city commissioner for alleged property code violations.

Sam Manoukian, who sits on the Civil Service Commission, and several business partners own a property at 900 W. Glenoaks Blvd. that city officials say has fallen into disrepair.

In the criminal complaint filed last week in Los Angeles County Superior Court, city attorneys list nearly two dozen municipal code violations at the “dilapidated” property, including the accumulation of junk and debris and the failure to maintain proper landscaping.

Jolene Taylor, president of the nearby Pelanconi Estates Homeowners Assn., said the property has long been out of compliance, and that the legal action was “a long time coming.”
