Post Ruco Board Progress Report

With the help of 2013 Greensboro mayoral candidate George Hartzman we now have available to the public, the minutes of the Post RUCO board that is scheduled to report to the Greensboro City Council with their findings. Thus far, all they have accomplished is to strike the following words from the inspections code:

"members of the department shall have a right to enter on any premises within the jurisdiction of the department at all reasonable hours for the purposes of inspections of inspection of inspection or other enforcement action, upon presentation of proper credentials." -Post Ruco Meeting Notes - Oct 15, 2012

That's right, after all these months the only thing the post RUCO board has managed to do is take any means of enforcement out of the statutes. But hey, don't take my word for it, read the links to the minutes and decide for yourself.

May 4th Meeting Minutes
June 20th Meeting Minutes
September 20th Meeting Minutes
September 28th Meeting Minutes
Oct 15th Meeting Minutes
Oct 18th Meeting Minutes

Finally, on October 18th they asked if tenants should be involved in the process just 1 week before the committee is supposed to report their findings to City Council. Is there any doubt the entire process wasn't rigged from the beginning? Good job, Mayor Perkins, good job.
