Lakeview SRO Bars Inspectors

Posted: Updated:

A Lakeview SRO could be vacated if the landlord continues to bar fire inspectors, according to Lakeview Action Coalition.

LAC members, including local clergy and social service providers, will gather tomorrow morning outside the Diplomat Hotel, 3208 N. Sheffield, when fire inspectors will attempt to conduct an inspection, said Jennifer Gonzalez. A media briefing is scheduled for 9:45 a.m. (Wednesday, November 12).

Building management barred inspectors who sought access on November 5, she said. Landlord Jack Gore was found in civil contempt and ordered to allow weekly fire inspections at housing court hearing on October 28.
