He is accused of failing to repair several apartment units damaged by a storm in 2016 located on Newson Rd.

Bendall never completed repairs necessary to bring those apartments back up to building code.

He was then cited and failed to appear in court, which resulted in his arrest. 

Bendall has 60 days to complete the work and is scheduled to appear in court at the end of November.
