Private property rights violated by Harrisburg Bureau of Codes, allegedly directed by Mayor: Federal Lawsuit
Former Codes Official Arden Emerick testified under oath to Magisterial District Justice Margeram that he was specifically directed by the mayor to cite the owner of 333 S. 18th Street for codes violations. This tactic was used in conjunction with the scheme to undervalue real estate in Allison Hill.
The Bureau of Codes office appears to be targeting homeowners to generate money for the City by issuing $215 citations after a dusting of snow in January.
It has now been 3 days since our most recent winter storm, yet today ice and snow remain on many city owned thoroughfares, alleys and sidewalks.
Similar complaints have been made on street cleaning days in Harrisburg City, regarding parking citations being given out on days when no actual street cleaning is being performed. https://wp.me/p8u3vA-2Jg
