Here’s an unusual one.
According to the Queens Tribune, Avella took the citation very personally.
“Clearly this is politically motivated,” he said in a phone interview Tuesday. “These complaints were put in and are totally ridiculous. The Buildings Department acted in a much more rapid response time than normal. Something was clearly done unethically in terms of the agency.”
Avella’s office is planning a press conference on Monday about “Calling on Buildings to Stop Harassment of Honest Homeowners.”
