  4. It was related to us by a neighbor, the Committee is relating it to the Board. It appears that a travel trailer beside the house has its own propane tank, the electric and water appear to be hooked up to the house and there are lights in the trailer at night. The address is 21939 Adobe Rd. Lot 26 Block G, A.P.N. is 3-045-45, the Owner of record is shown as Rbt. Guttke. Does this qualify as a Guest House???? This may be a County Code Violation and the Board should inform the Bldg. Dept. for their investigation. It is NOT a reviewable item for the Committee. Kelly will have more details.
