Milwaukee Goes After Politician for Code Violations

November 28th, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Many times I’ve heard tales from code officials as I travel around the country about politicians who have problem properties and who are above the law.  Code officials are in a very difficult position when some of the worst properties are owned by people who vote on their budgets and salaries.  Consequently, it’s refreshing when a story appears about a local government offiicial who is being taken to court for property maintenance issues.  The Journal Sentinel reports that the Milwaukee County Board President is facing court action over five properties he owns including violations for rodent and roach infestation, loose window trim and moldy walls.  http://www.jsonline.com/news/milwaukee/110894119.html The city finally filed charges because it was unable to get compliance any other way.
