BOARD OF SUPERVISORS

Supervisors consider plan to tighten building enforcement

A Board of Supervisors committee meets Monday to vote on legislation that would beef up city enforcement of building conditions.

The legislation, drafted by Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi, would allow the Department of Public Health to require building owners to attend training sessions if they are repeat offenders. It also allows the health department to force building owners to close up any holes or cracks were rodents might be able to sneak through.

The Board of Supervisors City Operations and Neighborhood Services Committee meets Monday, at 1 p.m., in City Hall, Room 263.
