City continues to assess flood damage
Tuesday, November 3, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano
As of yesterday afternoon, the city’s Code Department had assessed 419 properties following weekend floods. Inspectors found that, of those properties, 10 were “dangerous,” 202 were “substandard” and the status of 39 properties remained pending. Assessments continue in the areas of the city affected by the flood, so those numbers continue to grow. According to the Code Department, “Dangerous conditions are considered issues that cause an immediate risk to the health and safety of the resident, while substandard conditions are issues that may not be life-threatening, but do not meet the minimum standard of the code.” More details about those categories are available here, and a real-time map of flood damage assessments is available online here.
