Councillor Janet Davis (Ward 31 Beaches - East York) and Jim Hart, Executive Director of the City’s Municipal Licensing & Standards Division (ML&S) will hold a media availability at the site of a building audit conducted by the ML&S Building Audit Team.

The audit will focus on common areas within buildings, parking garages, balconies, the exterior grounds, building electrical, hot water and heating systems. Building residents will be advised as to the team’s presence at their building and will be able to bring forward any concerns that have gone unaddressed by landlords about apartment units to the ML&S mobile command unit, or the district ML&S office.

Date: Wednesday, December 3
Time: 11 a.m.
Location: ML&S mobile command unit, 500 Dawes Rd.
