Public Input Welcome on Identifying Vacant Buildings
There is a new vacant building registration law now in effect, and Code Enforcement officer Kris W. Vanderzee told The Chronicle that the public is welcome to submit complaints or bring attention to a possibly vacant building in Glens Falls.
In fact, the department is short staffed, and would very much appreciate the assistance. When a building is brought to their attention, they investigate to see if it meets the appropriate criteria and then take it from there.
