Albany - Albany city leaders are ready to put more teeth into codes for commercial property and code enforcers say they're ready to bite.

A few weeks ago, Code enforcers said they were holding off enforcing commercial property crackdowns until they got stricter rules. Tuesday, the Albany City Commission voted to adopt the International Property Maintenance Code. It covers residential and commercial properties and should help clean up downtown.

Director Mike Tilson said, "As I've talked about in the past, we don't have a lot to stand on with our current codes and now that they're going to adopt it, we'll have some teeth on commercial property."

If it gets final approval at the regular commission meeting, the code will be applied immediately. Problem properties are not grandfathered in, so every property owner will be forced to come into compliance.
