Jobe Cites Personal Experience In Push For Tougher Code Violation Rules

A Springfield alderman says his long-running battle with a neighbor shows the need for tougher city rules when it comes to chronic violations of city safety and sanitation codes. 


Cory Jobe says the neighbor who filed a police report against him last month has long been a thorn in the side of many in his neighborhood, because of repeated violations for overgrown weeds, trash piling up, abandoned cars, and more.  Jobe says the problem has gone on for years, proving that the ordinances need more teeth. 


For now, Jobe and Alderman Doris Turner are working on an ordinance that would keep landlords with problem properties from getting building permits for other properties.
