Building dept evacuates unsafe buildings...
Release Date: October 15, 2009
Another multi-family house had to be evacuated for safety purposes. 88 Florence Avenue contained approximately 60 people, including children. There were electrical violations (no permits) and safety issues. The building dept met with the owner and attorney, who accompanied us to the premises to notify the inhabitants. The building dept has been aggressive in sending inspectors to check other unsafe dwellings around town. Inspectors have uncovered overcrowding and safety problems in homes around the town. These inspectors probably are saving the lives of innocent people.
