  1. Concerning the 1901 Richmond Apts, cnr of Hazard, we may want to see if it has a Certificate of Occupancy. As much as I do not like to report such beaurecratic measures, this would probably be an exception when it is about our safety and security.

    I am not sure who to contact with the city codes and enforcement department, and someone may know how to go about this?
