Greensboro Misplaces Hundreds Of Housing Violations
City inspectors in Greensboro lost track of more than 300 cases of housing and nuisance violations.
The violations ranged from overgrown lots to structures that should have been condemned. In some instances city inspectors found housing code violations, but didn’t follow up and were not held accountable by supervisors. The lost violations effect between 50 and 75 properties. Councilwoman Nancy Vaughn says a new computer system didn’t cross-check with old cases.
Nancy Vaughn: "You know, I’m not really sure how to assess blame at this point. I’ve been looking more to how we can move forward and how we can make sure something like this doesn’t happen again."
Vaughn says the all of the missing cases have been found. She says the Council will consider if the city needs more than the four inspectors it currently has.
