Complaints for after-hours construction work skyrocketed 870 percent between 2001 and 2006, according to data obtained by The Post.
Spurred on by the construction boom and the ease of using the 311 system, complaints rose from 635 in 2001 to 6,160 in 2006. At the same time, the number of violations written by city inspectors increased only from 59 in 2001 to 249 last year.
In 2006, it took city inspectors an average 39.8 days to respond to a complaint - still an improvement over 65.8 days in 2001.
Gee, does anyone want to think the weekly papers will provide space for reporting this story?
Instead of serving the needs of the clubhouse and developers, educating and emporwering the public?
