311 Abuse?

New, 9 comments

South Slope blogger Imby has a beef with some Park Slopers for allegedly using 311 to harass six property owners on the same Park Slope block. A series of 311 calls over three days alleged illegal apartment conversions, illegal boiler installations, and a porch built without a permit. But the DOB has already checked up on many of these complaints, and Imby smells conspiracy: "If you conservatively estimate that each complaint will take up to two hours of an inspector's time, than that's more than a week's salary, our tax dollars, thrown down the toilet...Or worse yet, used in some diabolical plot to annoy and harass hard working families during these tough economic times."
