The proposed change to the city code would clarify that property owners that don’t comply with local code enforcement regulations could face civil or criminal charges. While this may seem like a harsh change for the average middle-class homeowner, the proposed city code is meant to be a means of prosecuting repeat code violators. Now instead of just getting repeating fines, property owners willingly abusing the system can be taken to court in a joint venture between code enforcement officer and city’s attorney office.

In short, the proposed code change hopes to put a stop to local slumlord’s abuse of the system and stranglehold on certain areas of the city. For more on the story, see The Columbus Dispatch.
