Inspectors from Tampa and Temple Terrace combined forces Thursday for a cleanup in areas where the two cities meet, issuing 17 warnings for code violations.
The sweep comes in the midst of a massive code enforcement initiative across targeted areas of Tampa, prompted by the discovery of violations by property owner and former Tampa Port Authority Chairman William “Hoe” Brown.
Thursday’s sweep targeted west Temple Terrace and Temple Crest. The tally of violation warnings: one broken window, one peeling fascia, two overgrown conditions, one tire dumping, seven debris accumulations, one commercial vehicle, two inoperative vehicles and one yard parking.
