The Housing Program focuses primarily on hazardous conditions present in residential rental properties, however problems involving commercial and owner-occupied properties may sometimes be addressed.
The program is complaint driven, with first priority given to those situations that involve immediate or imminent physical threats to public health and safety.
Specific hazards that may be addressed include:
- Sewage backup into buildings
- Severely dilapidated structures
- Unsanitary conditions (vermin infestation, solid waste accumulation)
- Unsafe water supply
- Inadequate structural maintenance
Conditions that would NOT be addressed include:
- Landlord/Tenant or Tenant/Tenant disputes of a civil nature (i.e.: non-payment of rent, breach of contract etc ...
- Noise complaints
- Unsightly appearance (weathered paint, worn carpets, holes in screens etc ...)
- Non-structural/sanitation complaints for Section 8 Housing
Note: It is important to have the address and parcel number, if possible of the location of concern.
