Judge gives Webb Avenue landlord July 31 deadline

A Bronx judge ruled today that the business management company of an apartment building on Webb Avenue must replace 75 fire escapes and correct all safety violations by July 31.

If the building management company fails to correct the nine violations by the deadline, it will face a $150 per violation per day fine, contempt of court and possible jail time.

Tenants, who have been evacuated from their homes for weeks now, say they remain optimistic that the work will get done by the deadline.11 apartments to be reoccupied after fire escape removalWebb Ave. evacuees could be out of their homes for 8 more weeks
