Since the last paragraph implies the property hasn't been visited by building approvers, and the 7th paragraph says so clearly, then it cannot be a safety issue that instigated the violation of code. And:

"recent letter from Deschutes County's Community Development Department informed him of "an alleged violation of the County Code associated with your property; specifically, that a church has located at the property without required land use approval."

This comes about from the false notion that a church meeting at a house on private property is a business, requiring permission to do so. Odds are it's the permit fee they miss.
