Ch 12: Norwood Bldg. Dept. gives tenants 48 hrs. to vacate building
Mayor Williams declined an on-camera interview but told Channel 12 this is an issue for the Building Department and that they would need to talk with them. The city has rules and regulations, he said, and they're going to enforce them.
We will post updates to this story as they are available.
11:25 a.m. UPDATE: We made some inquiries to find out if there have been police runs to the building, which we understand is on Cleveland Ave., and found out that in 2011 there were 11 NPD runs with 4 of them for overdoses. So far in 2012, there have already been 11 NPD runs with 1 of them for an overdose. We confirmed that the building was, indeed, referred to the Keep Our Property Safe Program.
1:35 p.m. UPDATE: Per the Norwood Health Dept., the building, which is at 1815 Cleveland Ave. has been inspected 5 times since 2006 for the complaints: pitbull concerns, trash and debris, animal feces, inoperable vehicle, and early garbage can set out.
