Opinion: Questionable enforcement of city’s building code

The dilapidated property owned by State Sen. Lester Jackson’s mother isn’t the only recent case that raises questions about possible selective enforcement of the city’s building code.

On Sunday, this newspaper reported another example — property once owned by a prominent real estate broker.

These two cases alone aren’t evidence of a deeper issue within a city agency that’s responsible for making sure that property owners maintain buildings at minimum safety and health standards. A more thorough look is required.
