This property is condemned - York-based landlords given notice

The borough codes department recently condemned 134 North Third Street due to an "unlawful structure." The letter accompanying the posted notice defines an unlawful structure as "A structure which is found to be occupied by more persons than is permitted under this code or which was erected, altered or occupied contrary to law." 

According to the letter, the rental does not have a certificate of occupancy or rental license.

The owners have 30 days to correct the violations. The full text of the letter is shown in the photograph below. 

The building contains several rentals units. Sources tell Columbia Spy that occupants have regularly been noisy and disruptive.

Hopefully, this is the start of cleaning up the out of town slumlords. I am sure there are a lot more that could be condemned or warned of possible condemnation.

The Boro Powers-To-Be should get together and start walking the streets of the Boro and look at the Meters on the walls and figure out why the Boro and the School District is losing money. When you have 5 or 6 Families living in one house it is TAX Base they are losing and the SLUM LORDS are making THOUSANDS hand over fists, do your JOBS and get out of the office and see where the PROBLEMS are in this town, like they say this town is going to HELL in a HAND BASKET. CORRUPTION CORRUPTION CORRUPTION .
