CITY OF ATLANTA [RECEIVED

HOUSING CODE DEPARTMENT MAR 21 togq
CITY HALL BUILDING
DEPARTMENT
SS MENT

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:

Usually letters are written to City Hall only in protest or complaint.
I am writing this letter as one of commendation to the City Housing
Code Department for thetr fine work in our area of town.

I own property in the Riverside or Chattahoochee area of Northwest
Atlanta. Recently your tnspectors, especially a Mr. Latham, made
tnspecttons of the property in this area. Property owners were given
lists of repairs or changes that should be made in order for their
houses to meet the code standards.

_I suppose tt actually cost me more money than many of the other
property owners because I own more property..And I asked for and
received no spectal constderattons on my property. I just repatred
my property along with the other property owners.

Now the area ig beginning to show results from these efforts. While
many other areas of our etty are showing signs of deterioration,
this area is now beginning to climb back up the ladder of community
attractiveness. ;

I thought you might be interested in knowing the feelings of one
ettizen who owns property in the City of Atlanta. I for one, appre-
etate the efforts of the City of Atlanta and tts administratton

in the field of housing code enforcement. And especially the
inspectors like Mr. Lathan, who do thetr jobs effectively.

In an age when there ts so much protest and dissent, I wanted to

let you know there are still citizens that appreciate what you
are doing.

Sincerely,

Johnnie Owens
