Niagara Falls City Councilman
One area that continues to be a problem in Niagara Falls is our code enforcement of derelict properties in our city. These properties pose a safety hazard for residents, decreases property values, and make our city unappealing.
Last summer, I rode around with code enforcement inspectors to see what they do. I believe the inspectors are dedicated individuals with the best of intentions when it comes to cleaning up our city and enforcing the rules on the books. However, the process doesn’t fully support their efforts.
