Albany -- Code Enforcement officers hit the streets of downtown Albany in search blighted buildings.

They mailed notices to owners of more than 550 properties to inform them of these inspections that are a part of an effort to revitalize downtown Albany.

Officers will look for and enforce any code violations. Owners of vacant buildings will also be required to register the property and submit a statement on what they plan to do with the building.

"Two of our inspectors, Trayvius Trent and Albert Hicks, are going to be dedicated to this area. And they are going to do nothing but inspect each and every property in that target area," said Director, Mike Tilson.

Property owners have up to 10 days after receiving the notice to register any vacant buildings. The inspections will take about two months to complete.
