Apart­ment owner fined for fire code vi­o­la­tion

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL - THE HAMIL­TON SPEC­TA­TOR

The owner of an apart­ment build­ing on Bay Street South has been fined $1,500 for vi­o­lat­ing the On­tario Fire Code.

Bay South Prop­er­ties Ltd., owner of the 11-storey apart­ment build­ing at 172 Bay St. S., pleaded guilty in pro­vin­cial of­fences court on May 16 for not main­tain­ing the build­ing’s emer­gency power sup­ply.

If a build­ing loses power, the emer­gency power sup­ply is sup­posed to pro­vide enough light­ing in the com­mon area to al­low res­i­dents to safely get out and pro­vide backup to other sys­tems. “This is es­pe­cially im­por­tant in this build­ing be­cause of the num­ber of sto­ries,” the fire de­part­ment said in a news re­lease.
