Arlington Code Inspectors Drop 477 Violations on Apartments, Probably Run Out of Paper and Ink

This Star-Telegram story is disgusting.

Cliffs Notes version: A water leak in an east Arlington apartment complex forces code compliance to do a sweep of the place. While there, they find:

– roaches
– mold
– missing smoke detectors
– graffiti
– Dirk’s pre-surgery right knee

In total, 477 violations, a number that could continue to climb. Councilwoman Lana Wolff, in the understatement of the year: “There’s got to be some level of scrutiny. We need to bump it up on another list. If that means adding additional inspectors, so be it. It’s not an empty warehouse. It is where people and babies are living. Let those people live in a safe environment.”
