This establishment hosts hearings for tickets given out by different City agencies, such as the Department of Buildings or Department of Sanitation.
What is a ECB Violation in New York?
A DOB-ECB violation is an infraction issued by a DOB inspector during an Environmental Control Board hearing. If the respondent does not take care of the violations, they will be fined. The named respondent on the property where the infraction occurred will be associated with this case and given a description of what needs to change and a hearing date and class designation. There may also be possible cure dates stated to avoid being fined.
Class 1 (Immediately Hazardous), Class 2 (Hazardous), and Class 3 (Minor) are the three classifications for DOB-ECB violations.
