   Mayor Kraham Issues Lockdown Warnings to Four Problem Properties
   Updated Law Gives City Tool to Address Nuisance Properties
    ( BINGHAMTON , N . Y . )
   —
   Mayor Jared M . Kraham on Wednesday announced the City has issued warning letters to four problem properties under the City’s recently updated lockdown law , which sets legal grounds to shut down nuisance properties .
   “We won’t tolerate problem properties that wreak havoc on residents’ quality of life ......, hurt our neighborhoods and attract violent criminal behavior , ” said Mayor Kraham . “Under the City’s updated lockdown law , these warning letters are a critical first step in abating the nuisance activity at these properties or shutting them down . ”
   The owners of the following properties were sent warning letters this week from the City’s Office of Corporation Counsel:
   53 Chenango St .
   5 Grace St .
   314 Prospect St .
   92 Robinson St .
   The letters notify the owners that their properties have been deemed a public nuisance under the City’s Property and Building Nuisance Reform Law , commonly known as the “lockdown law . ”
   Property owners have 30 days to submit a corrective action plan and abate the nuisance after meeting with City officials . If an owner fails to do so , the City will file a complaint with City Court and ask for a temporary closing of the premises .
   Earlier this year , Mayor Kraham announced the City would begin enforcing an updated version of its lockdown law following New York State court decisions clarifying how municipalities can apply local nuisance laws .
   Under the City’s lockdown law , officials can assign point values to properties for different types of nuisance activity . More serious crimes have higher point values . A building is deemed to be a public nuisance if it accumulates 12 or more points in a six - month period or 18 or more points in a 12 - month period , triggering a warning letter from the City to the property owner .
   The properties that received letters this week had point totals ranging from 22 to 34 , as of August 31 . Nuisance activity included assault , a stabbing , fights , disorderly conduct and alcohol violations .
   In 2014 , the City used its lockdown law to shut down 17 East , a nightclub in the First Ward , after a multi - agency narcotics investigation led to the arrest of 14 alleged gang members . The nightclub had been the site of illegal gambling , drug trafficking and shootings .
   In the following years , the City used the lockdown law to shut down multiple properties , targeting after - hours clubs that operated unlawfully from the early morning hours until sunrise .
