I have many questions with regard to the landlord ordinance. Obviously, the police department, according to Orwig, already know where the "hot spots" are. So, you are going after the landlord with the codes department but what happens next? Landlord is fined, ignores it--do you lock him up or just shut down his rental unit. Although I am not positive, I think it is safe to say there are but a handful of properties such as this in Williamsport but I could be wrong. I do know that bullying the owners doesn't sound all that effective to me, especially if they have not cooperated thus far. It seems to me this administration is into "bullying" more than anything. I suggest, again, you educate yourself with some other options and remember that the real success of this ordinance depends on landlords cooperating with city officials. If you want respect, act with integrity first.
