A former special prosecutor for the New York City Department of Buildings, John Cox, will discuss some possible remedies for violations to the City Building Code at the Madison-Marine-Homecrest Civic Association meeting, May 15 at 7:30 p.m. in the lower auditorium of the Kings Highway Reformed Church, Quentin Road and East 27th Street.

Cox, also a former assistant city corporation counsel, wrote a hard hitting column, “Bad Builders Belong in Prison.” Also on the meeting’s program are representatives from U.S. Post Office and the 61st Precinct.

“There is concern throughout the city about what’s been going on with building violations and accidents. We have a very high number of Stop Work Order’s involving illegal construction in this community, so we look forward to hearing Mr. Cox’s thoughts on possible solutions,” said Mary Powell, president of the civic group. “Also, we are glad to have a Post Office representative visit us, since we’ve heard complaints and questions about mail delivery services.”

For those interested in joining the association, annual dues are $10 per family. For more, call 718-934-8214.
