Housing Violations Outrage Some Sandy Victims

Some New York City officials are adding insult to injury to many victims of Hurricane Sandy.

FOX News Radio’s Jeff Monosso reports from New York:

Audio clip:

New York City’s Department of Buildings is now slapping violations on homeowners of now condemned homes in parts of Queens that were damaged or destroyed during Hurricane Sandy and people are outraged.

(Resident) “I think the city needs to work with us and not against us. You know, to impose a fine, to threaten violations. I mean, just look around. Because if you saw what was going on here you wouldn’t have the nerve to put that on our door.”

But a city spokesman says the violations issued are just part of the bureaucratic process to document damage and not meant to impose fines or prosecution.
