Resident: 'Seneca Mafia' Harasses People into Giving Up Their Property | The Nerve

Resident: 'Seneca Mafia' Harasses People into Giving Up Their Property | The Nerve: "Disputes are supposed to be adjudicated by a board of experienced building officials who do not have any ties to the governing body. But this dispute didn’t go before any board; it went before a city judge. The judge had every motivation to rule in favor of the city – all fine revenue goes to city coffers, and once the city seizes a piece of land, it can sell that land for a profit or use it as collateral for loans. On at least six occasions, city officials told me that “if you can’t afford to fix the property, you can give it to the city, and it won’t cost you anything.” The implication was clear.

The truth is this: Seneca officials are forcing people without a lot of financial means to relinquish their property to the city."

“If you go to the food banks,” she continued, “you will see a lot of people who are working who are just not making enough money. It’s great to say more people are going to work, but people are not making a living.”"
