City hires two code enforcement attorneys

Kudos to the City of Springfield for hiring two new attorneys who will focus on code violations and enforcement.  ICON believes that one of the keys to cleaning up the older neighborhoods is aggressively pursuing property owners who fail to correct their code violations in a timely fashion. We are also optimistic that  the new Corporation Counsel, Mark Cullen, will take a pro-active approach to boarded properties and ensuring that the city does not allow these problems to drag on for years on end.
