BY AISHA AL-MUSLIM
Elected officials are trying to find a tougher way to punish bad landlords who don’t provide heat to their tenants.
Public Advocate Bill de Blasio, State Senator Liz Krueger from Manhattan and members of the New York City Council are bringing awareness to the fact that many landlords are neglecting to provide tenants with basic services like heat and hot water.
They vowed to take necessary steps to ensure negligent landlords are compelled by harsher penalties and increased enforcement.
