Where are the building inspectors in town?

NOTE: The following letter to the editor was submitted by Jennie Conrad of Norwalk.

I recently had an eye-opening experience in the city of Norwalk.

There are no inspectors for the inside of homes and apartments. Renters can only turn to the zoning department for outside city violations or the health department which begins with a written letter. No inspection.

I have been exposed to airborne roundworm eggs that no chemicals can kill. They are transmitted from raccoon feces. I Googled and was shocked to learn that raccoon feces are treated as hazardous waste.

I am renting from a very prominent rental and realty company, and they have been aware of the raccoons for three years that I know of.

I have spoken with two other renters with the same company and the same problems.

Where do we renters turn? Why is there no building inspector for the city of Norwalk?

Signed, contaminated.
