Wow-this is not going to turn out well simply because it has been ignored for too long. Suddenly, all the responsibility is with the codes department? Ridiculous!

OR could it be a personal vendetta from one landlord to others. If these so called conscientious on the task force where to volunteer to help with improvements on those properties, perhaps that would go further than fines. If you don't have the extra cash to make improvements to a property resulting in being punished for not making improvements. How compassionate.

Sounds like they are tying to "drain the swamp" like Nancy Pelosi said she would do. I hope this goes better than Pelosi's plan for after the draining and discovering the bottoms content she hurriedly filled it back in and kept it's secret.
