Chairman Berny Stone led the City Council’s committee on buildings through a lengthy, often testy debate Wednesday over whether certain condominium owners should be required to post their names and phone numbers on the outside of their buildings, as apartment managers are—and why city inspectors have been ticketing people for failing to do so. In the end Stone reached the same conclusion you probably have if you’ve read this far:
“The building inspector should be hung up by his toes for issuing a citation. I think the whole thing is stupid, and we’re sitting here already for a half an hour arguing over the most stupid thing I’ve ever seen in my life.”
The item was held and within seconds the meeting was adjourned.
