Hotel Utica is a health hazard

Anywhere else in the country a building like the Hotel Utica would be shut down and those who perpetrated such a massive fraud on the taxpayers would be fined and jailed. It has been said that Utica is a city of rats picking the pockets of rats, and that is not too far off the mark. The hotel continues to operate despite that fact it is dangerously unsafe and obscenely in the rears in taxes. So why has it not been closed and/or condemned? What does “good old Jack” in codes do other than sit on his ass drawing a paycheck?
The Mayor’s office has no intention of allowing his friends to be foreclosed on, nor would he ever entertain the thought of allowing a real inspection of the building. Apparently, the former contractors (Lakewood construction) hired to remove asbestos pipe covering, tile floors and insulation from the building were caught illegally dumping it. After they were caught, rather than paying for the safe removal of the hazardous material, they covered it up (as they covered the Gyp-block used it the building’s construction). From the second floor and up, Lakewood Construction simply dry-walled over the building’s problems.
Friends, it is a simple matter to correct this problem: call (800) 368-5888 and ask the D.C. headquarters of the E.P.A. why the Hotel Utica would be allowed to endanger its guests and employee’s heath. Every complaint must be investigated, and the more people that complain, the faster the inspectors will arrive and shut them down for good.
