Patch - 08-09


ROCKVILLE, MD — A two-year push to inspect 686 apartment buildings in Montgomery County resulted in more than 31,000 housing code violations, County Executive Marc Elrich said Thursday. The initiative, which concluded this week, is the "most aggressive among large jurisdictions in the Washington area," officials said. It also marks the first time Montgomery County has inspected so many apartment buildings in that time span.
