I don't think he drives around in a van, I think the head of each department has an explorer that they use with blue plates. Water department has a van and maybe they have a van for other departments?

I believe that the directors of each department drive explorers with blue plates. If the van is parked there all the time for that lenth of time, you should take down the plate and call city hall. I believe they are not suppose to be out of the city with these vehicles.

Ok Sparky if you say so but someone else sees him at a car dealership while someone else sees him hanging out at his house and all at the same time

I never said I see him hanging out at his used car lot or hanging out at his house. I do know he was running a business out of his house in a residential neighborhood, and I said he probably does business on city time for the car lot. Sorry I don't think he would not take a call if someone were to call about buying a car if it means he is making money. I also asked the question of who inspects the work he does in the city of malden? Simonelli, although he has the position I don't believe has the knowledge to approve the work. I believe it would have to be someone else who approves it, that is why I believe he is not suppose to do work (construction business) in this city.

All I can say is that any greedy selfish homewoner who has done illegal and dangerous work should not be whining about fees or Fitzpatrick I really believe that some of the blogs about Fitzpatrick were started by immegrants who got tagged for illegal work My former landylady a vietnamese was tagged for the same reason

You should do what I'm going to do. File a formal complaint with the State Ethics Commission against those involved naming the Mayor as the responsible party for his corrupt employees Maybe things will change then

When Martha Coakley's minion claimed in Court that I lied in order to cover up for my former employers lies I was part of a campaign too the one that helped take her down and expose all over the internet/You Tube that she was a liar when she said dhe didn't know anything about the assault on a DC sidewalk When the MHA inspector covered up code violations to curry favor because was looking for votes because she was running for Counselor at Large, I campaigned too She lost to Mark D . Serves these shitbags right for trampling where they should not be treading .... On other people.

Blame Ffitzpatrick all you want but a good many of the referrals he gets come from Chris Webb especially the ones that end up being completely demolished inside and end up being taken over by the City or a Bank There's crap bags everywhere in the City

I do jobs all over Massachusetts and deal with building inspectors all the time. Scott Fitzpatrick is among the worst. Period. His hours ae from 8-10 and 1-2, but he is rarely available at those times. If you go in, expect to be ignored, to wait at the desk while he sits a few feet away, and to watch him slowly walk across the office without looking up from his phone. He likes the power and abuses it.

I miss Paul Johnson.

I am resident in Malden and a builder and have found Scott Fitzpatrick the inspector to be an abusive, unhelpful, power hungry, difficult, racist individual. I say this because I have seen the way he treats people who come to the office on many occasions and on site. His abusive behavior will only hinder the City of Malden because less people will want to work and build in Malden. Many of my contractor friends feel this way and I also refuse to do any more work in Malden.
I deal with many inspectors around Boston and don't have an issue with strict inspectors as they are only doing their job but Scott is a nasty piece of work. It is a shame as the city as a whole will suffer because less people want to work and develop here.
I would urge people to write to the Mayor and the department heads to express their experiences with him. This is the only way to change anything.

His boss is the head of all inspectors, Chris Simonelli and that is who the complaints should go to but nothing will be done if you complain to him either. In my situation, Fitzpatrick refused to inspect a room in my unit that was freezing in the winter. Initially we thought it was an insulation problem. The room had been an illegal added on many years ago. It was discovered that the walls did not go all the way down to the floor and there had been a wooden piece of molding at the end of the wall and floor to conceal a half inch gap between the walls and the floor. The reason the cold was coming in the room and the room is unlivable in the winter is because on the outside of the wall is a half inch gap in the foundation where the cold is directly coming inside the house into that unit. Talk about building violations. The same thing with all of the various electrical violations. A former tenant had one of those old arcade games up stairs and every time he played it, it would shut down the electricity in my living room because it drew too much electricity. This was also an indication that part of the second floor electricity was wired to my unit. However, the landlady who of Vietnamese descent, had an electrician, also of Asian descent alleged that my electricity in my living room was shutting down because I did not have a power surge for my computer when I most certainly did. The Board of Health stated since the electrician is the licensed "professional" they were going to go by what he stated. This isn't the first time the save face liar got other people to lie for her to cover her tacks. I'm sure it hasn't been the last time either.

Well, all I can say is that we have more incompetent people who work at city hall once again. Too bad they passed my husband over with outstanding qualifications for the DPW. Their loss. They made sure they hired people they knew and lifelong residents in Malden. I guess living here 15 years didn't cut it. UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!!!!

Goes to show us that he doesn't always need referrals from the Board of Health and that he is capable of gutting out properties all on his own unless of course the post is bogus and was posted by NN

So let me get this straight...someone is upset because he made you fix your illegal apartment, another one is upset because he is too strict and follows the law, yeah ok. Go make a complaint then. Makes a lot of sense.
