Kingston to get tough on absentee landlords

KINGSTON – As part of Kingston’s crackdown on quality of life issues, the city is going after building code violations.  Mayor Shayne Gallo said absentee landlords are not going to be let off the hook if violations are found on their properties.

“We’re not going to put up with the fact that they rent their property to individuals and then aren’t concerned about code compliance or the safety of the tenant who is occupying the rental unit,” Gallo said.

The city is also going after street level drug dealers and prostitutes in an effort to clean up Kingston’s streets.
