This rental property on 78 Grove Street and the adjacent double lot 80-82 Grove Street have been a constant source of code violations (and other problems) that are not being corrected. These properties belong to Janusz Bronski, 25 Jay Street, Amsterdam, NY 12010. The mounds of trash and abandoned furniture was dumped in front of the building on Friday, June 17, 2011, and scheduled trash pick up is not until Tuesday, June 21, 2011. I don’t know when or who will pick up the large abandoned items. In the meantime the heat, animals and kids will rip into the bags and we will have trash strewn about the street. The unimproved lot next to the building has been a used car lot for a month now. Today I called the Police Department again and reported the abandoned vehicles with no plates (blue vehicle and gray vehicle parked behind it.)
I first reported the code violations last month to Assistant Chief Victor Hugo and Codes Department. On May 13, 2011, it was a red vehicle with no plates (wheelchair in photo taken from closed Park Hill Adult Home).
What ever happened to Nuisance Ordinance and the point system our City Council came up with to track problem rental properties and fine property owners? The Amsterdam Policemen I talked with tell me they don’t keep track.
Someone needs to keep track!
