Elevator problems persist at Long Beach high-rise
(Page 4 of 4)
Anthony Rifilato/Herald
City council members Eileen Goggin, third from left, and Fran Adelson, right, inspected the conditions at 10 Monroe Blvd., on a day when the elevator happened to be working. They said that the city is seeking to impose tougher penalties on negligent landlords.

“The problem is that they make temporary repairs that last two or three days or a week, and then the elevator becomes defective again,” he said. “It cuts off my living — there is no living that I can enjoy or aspire to because we have no elevator service.”

It is a rent stabilized building where lots of tenants pay very little rent and landlord cant raise rent.

That is around 90% of the problem. Raising the fine is maybe 10% of the problem.

I am sure if every tenant chipped in one grand each, which would be around 100K the landlord would gladly spend it all on fixing up the building.
