A Stop Work Order When Violation Is Resolved?

Geez… It just never ends with the NYC DOB… We STILL have a stop work order despite the fact that all the violations have been resolved. Here’s our building page on the DOB website clearly showing that we have a stop work order…

When you click on the stop work order link to see which violations are behind the stop work order you see this…

Notice there’s only one violation and the status column is “RES” (resolved). But just to reiterate the point here’s the detail page about the violation. Notice “RESOLVED” in big block letters…

I’m really sorta sick of all these sorts of things. It’s one thing to be strict, it’s another to have computer systems that are incapable of removing a stop work order when the underlying violation gets resolved. Or issuing violations for not closing an approved job that can’t be renewed.

This is 2011… They need to get a computer programmer and put some common sense into their systems…
