Problem Property

I stopped by a police call just east of Lake Ave on 5th Street this morning around 740. It was the second or third fight/disturbance call at that address in the last 12 hours. We've been to the building several times in June- prior to these latest events. I wanted to call the landlord and let them know about the events in the last 12 hours and ask what help they may need, however I did not see... a contact name and number posted near the entrance as required by ordinance. I looked around the exterior of the property and noticed junk and garbage strewn about. Since this building is blighted and an obvious problem, the landlord will be receiving a citation for not posting landlord contact info as required by City ordinance. Additionally, they will receive another visit from the Building Safety, receive notification they will be charged police costs for certain future police calls and will lose their rental license if things continue. The cops did a great job and brought one person to jail and took other action to help the landlord if he wants to do something.
