    This is another example of the cities’ failure to use it’s
    power to deal with problem residences in the city, which are
    a scourge on the community.

    Interestingly, the owner of 2606 Jasper Court, also, had a
    problem duplex on Minter St., which eventually had a fire
    and was torn down.

    There has been constant police intervention at both properties,
    with chronic repeat offenders spreading out from this residence and involved in prolific theft of vehicles, break and enter, drug dealing. centre affecting businesses/residences and surrounding area, in the city centre.

    Police have hauled out truckloads of stolen goods from past tenants and raided the place for drug trafficking, several times.

    The place has had numerous By-Law infractions for untidy premises
    etc and broken windows.

    Truckloads of garbage have been removed from this residence.

    The house is looking like a dilapidated shack and it is time the city
    has him bring it up to code or have it condemned!

    This residence is, also, costing taxpayers a lot of money in policing costs and crimes committed by residents from Jasper Court.

    It is, also, time for the city to explore a “Maintenance By-Law” to
    deal with such dilaphadated buildings,which deteriorate an entire neighborhood and put all residents, at risk, due to safety concerns not being addressed!
