Report Analyzing Code Enforcement in NYS Released, Critical of Ramapo

Building codes around the state are not being enforced. That’s the conclusion of a six-month investigation led by North Rockland state Senator James Skoufis, who released the report Monday. It looked at various communities, including Ramapo, Albany, Newburgh and Mount Vernon. The report concluded Ramapo has failed to properly enforce codes, even with a state oversight official to monitor related activities. Senator Skoufis says it’s more than a quality-of-life issue…

The report encourages Ramapo to cooperate with the efforts of the Rockland Codes Initiative, which the county executive launched in April, 2015, to combat housing and fire safety issues. Ramapo supervisor Michael Specht says he and his staff are reviewing the report, and while they found some credible statewide recommendations, he says there were some inaccurate statements about the town.
