Spring Valley Ordered by State to Step Up Building Inspections

According to an order issued by the New York State Division of Standards and Codes, the Rockland County village of Spring Valley has thirty days to begin inspecting buildings, they say have barely or never been investigated in the past. The entire county has faced increasing problems with illegal housing and slumlords in recent years, leading to the creation of a task force to investigate claims of building violations, and County Executive Ed Day’s decision to allow the Health Department to complete inspection based on sanitary codes. The state’s recent order, filed last week, requires that Spring Valley officials make changes to their inspection process or the state will take control. According to task force officials Spring Valley does not have the manpower to enact inspections within the given time frame, and the state took too long to step in.
