Today is the latest city-imposed deadline for Jim Hardwick to have turned old Shell Station on Thronton Ave at Cabrillo Drive into an exciting new mini-mart. He’s not even close to done. There’s still no roof, still no stucco, still no landscaping, etc., etc.
The city fined him $4,500 when he missed his last deadline in October. The fined him another $14,000 this month when it turned out he didn’t have a general contractor overseeing the project as promised. Now they can fine him again. That decision will come on Monday.
Hardwick said he had not comment.
