    Bad motel review online prompts city and county to condemn rooms

    From the Buffalo News:

    The video prompted an investigation by city building and electrical inspectors and Niagara County Health Department inspectors Wednesday. Inspectors declared 11 of the 24 rooms uninhabitable after they found dirty sheets and bedbugs, mold, unsafe electrical and no smoke detectors.

    Niagara Falls Code Enforcement Officer Dennis Virtuoso said the rooms cannot be rented again until they are repaired.

    Chief Code Enforcement Officer Dennis Virtuoso stopped short of saying the building would be condemned but said representatives from his office would pay a visit sometime today.
