*HOUSING COURT UPDATE* The Niagara Falls City Court added a second Housing Court date for the month of March. We were informed on the change last week. Combined, approximately 175 cases are on both court calendars. Housing Court will take place Monday, March 19 and Wednesday, March 21 (regularly scheduled session).
Both sessions will take place at 1 pm in Room 22 of the Niagara Falls Public Safety Complex (1925 Main Street, Niagara Falls, NY).
Niagara Falls Community Development/Code Enforcement does not have any influence over court scheduling, but we do have an important role to play, along with the community. Code Enforcement violation reports are only successful if they are corrected by the owner, or adjudicated in court. The community has a right to know that rate of that adjudication and to evaluate the performance of both the Court and our Code Enforcement/Legal teams.
Niagara Falls Community Development/Code Enforcement will continue to be at every Housing Court session, and will continue to invite and inform the community about what happens there. Residents have the right to know.
