How awful that the owner of the building housed many tenants that rented rooms, with no provide proper safety equipment. Shame on him. Sounds familiar...wasn't there a fire on Whitesboro street and many tenants were elderly and disabled and died.......

Utica needs to do something so this doesn't happen again and again.......

seems so mean to treat a land lord like this he was only trying to take a man for all he had and not get caught. im sure a slap on the hand and another $1 building from city will fix it all.

Utica needs to up their standards on inspections of homes that are being listed as a two family dwelling...how can this slip through the cracks? There were 7 families living there, and they were not sharing rent..Mr Morrissey provided a false, inacurate statement to officials..Has he even contacted any of these families to see if they needed anything?? He was there when he wanted the cash though...and (nut) wether the place was old or cheap does not give someone the right to lower living standards for people that have blood running through their veins like you and I..Lets have some compassion for others..

Let me guess? Was the place on Varick, also listed as a two family dwelling?? I think this would also be considered tax evasion...

What if you rent a nice place on the 3rd floor? You wanted to be in a warm clean and safe place as a working memeber. I personaly pay cash for my rent. There is not a single thing to protect me. If i ask for a city inspection I get kicked out in 3 days. I am a bit younger and didnt know all the laws on renting. So no that I pay close to $1,000.00 a month for rent my own electric, water, cable and whatever else. I have no back door. No window or vent in my kitchen or bath. What am I to do? I cant afford to move. I dont drive so the truck rentals will be a problem. So I am pretty much forced to live here with no way out. Some people get taken by unseen things and are to blind to see whats being done to them untill its to late! Thanks to our wonderland of utica missfit landlords. Personaly I know this was my doing but it seems the next person that lives in my place would deserve some more human right. I also know there are alot worse places to live then mine.

As taxpayers paying the salaries of these elected officials doing the "inspections"..this needs to be looked into..the places should not be rented until they are fit for living..there are strict fire codes for NYS..they need to be obided by..and someone should be overseeing this..

It would be nice but the person paying rent and taxes have no rights I have found. When I asked for help from UPD. I was told if I dont like it move they dont have time to nit pick. after admiting my landlord has a long history of fires. Its just plan scary to me really.

Some place between the election and taking office they become nothing more then lips with legs. The hands they should do things with are to busy taking money to complete anything they said in the running of office.
