City Hall records are a MESS!

2/19/2009:

Welcome to the 1800’s!

Ever wonder why people have to sue the city to get records?

Not only are they afraid to hand them over – it’s probably next to impossible to find them! With the bloated budget, you’d hope at least one professional file clerk was on the payroll.

Judy, have you gone to the 4th floor yet? Take a look at how city records are stored!

Along with the dusty, crumbling cardboard trans-files, we have a Cleveland Browns football helmet, some trophies, HVAC duct work, a broken TV and holiday decorations. Lovely…

[quote comment=”137548″]Maybe Big Al should relocate his building code office up there. :mrgreen:[/quote]
It was once located where payroll is now. However, this hazard is enforced by the Fire Official in the Fire Department also know as the Fire Marshal. His phone no. is 201-420-2268-9. Of course, the acting chief (420-2258) is a blogger/commentor and may or may not be aware of this. His pal, the public safety director micro-managed’ the whole building and certainly is aware. The Mayor’s PR guy is also computer astute and reports to the Mayor and supports other officials. By the way, Pat Riccardi is located next door and should receive hazardous duty pay. :mrgreen:

You think HFD doesn’t know about the state of that attic? Geez, you must be new to town. It’s called looking the other way. No one gives a toss. Remember, the rules don’t apply to City Hall.
I’ve been up in the attic, and it’s pretty scary, and so incredibly messy. The pics are good but until you’re actually standing in it, you see how high the boxes are.
And talking of lack of fire code, there’s a big hole in the floor. I heard a worker was up there and partially fell right through it. Hurt themselves pretty badly, but nothing was ever done apparently. Get over it, walk it off. I wonder if the floor was fixed. My guess is no, or perhaps a 2×4 nailed across it as a temp fix.
So if there’s a fire on the second floor, the attic won’t be saved. And you can probably guess by now, they don’t really care – in fact, they probably wouldn’t even mind – document request? Geez, we would if we could…but they were lost in the fire.
