City Council
member James Vacca introduced a bill that would establish a database of
all the properties in New York City. The database would become a tool
for tracking negligent landlords, and would be run by the city Department of Buildings. Landlord monitoring sites have
existed online for years, but not under a city agency. Vacca said
“creating a one-stop search engine of all dealings with the city
empowers local communities, as well as city agencies, to identify
problem spots and bring their owners to task.”
