Description

Front porch brick supporting the pillar has no mortar. Bricks are freely loose. Wooden support post on the same corner is barely attached to the porch roof. Porch roof is excessively sagging and looks extremely unstable. This appears to be in violation of Building Code 304.1 that states "Front porch construction was started over a month ago and abandoned. Railing is not attached to proch and has been sitting in the front yard since abandonment. A plastic tarp drapes the entire front porch and is weighed down with bricks in an apparent attempt to protect the wood. This is causing excessive blight to the block and seems to violate Code 304.1 General that explicitly states "The exterior of a structure shall be maintained in good repair, structurally sound and sanitary..." and Code 304.4 "Structural members. All structural members shall be maintained free from deterioration, and shall be capable of safely supporting the imposed dead and live loads" as the porch is unsound and in immenent danger of collapse. Issue creating excessive blight to block.
Furthermore, somehow (or someone) has opened. The bottom window has been raised and is now allowing the elements and animals to enter the property. Please have this corrected.
