Watertown Asks Homeowner To Address Code Violations

Martin Moot House WWNY


The city of Watertown is asking Martin Moot to address numerous code violations both inside and outside his Ward Street home or once again face the prospect of the city doing the work and billing him.

Moot's home has been the subject of numerous complaints from neighbors who say they want the city to do something to force the clean up of garbage and the repair of things like broken windows. 

Code Enforcement officer Shawn McWayne says Moot allowed his staff into the home Tuesday morning. 

A report on all of the violations is being compiled and will be sent to Moot. 

McWayne says once Moot receives the list, he'll have five days to remove the garbage and must fix the home's roof, garage and windows or face court action.
