City Cites City

The other day I was walking to catch the T to work and saw this notice taped to the old police station:
2012-08-18_15-19-16_669

VIOLATION DESCRIPTION:

Failure to comply with Vacant or Abandoned Building Ordinance (194-09), which requires the following action:
The submittal of completed Application for Registration of Vacant or Abandoned Buildings and payment of initial registration fee in the amount of $765.

CORRECTIVE ACTION:

Submit completed Application for Registration of Vacant or Abandoned Buildings with initial registration fee in the amount of $765.00 plus nine (9) time penalty. Abatement procedures will begin within 30 days if registration fee plus penalties are not received.

$7650.00!

Does city employee Keith Mather have a sense of humor? I hope so.

Blight?

I don’t know if this is related, but in my secret heart, I wish that it were so.
