RE
"In Rem" Act ivit i es
I would like to report that since we started our "In Rem"
proc eedings to get owners to demo l i sh slum houses after the
City has exhausted every legal remedy, in July, 1966 we held
hearings on 23 buildings; in August, 27 ; in September, 40 and
in October, 39 - a total of 129 buildings.
In accordance with the " In Rem" ordinanc e we must give
public notice and a fter 90 days from the date o f the public
hearing we can proceed to demo lish the house and place a
lien agains t the property.
We are fi nding our "In Rem" proceedings very productive.
Following the Ju ly hearing 9 of the 23 buildings involved were
demolished before the 90-day limit expired; from the August
hearing , 9 were demolished; from the September hearing, 21
and from the October hearing , 19 - 59 buildings out of a total
of 129 that were notified and on which pub lie hearings wer e
held.
We are proceeding now to award contracts for demolition of
those houses where owners have failed to demolish the building
involved.
