In a release Sunday, February 13, 2022, Yid Info reported on the first-in-NY take over of a village’s Building Department. In the report, we wrote that “homeowners are not required to open the door to any stranger or inspector. It is also suggested that there be no more than one family name on the door of any given single-family home.”

The latter can incorrectly suggest that Yid Info condones improper use of zoning laws. That’s clearly not the case, and we regret the choice of words. We, however, stand behind our assertion that people are not required to open doors to spot inspections if done without a court order. A two-unit structure in a single-family zone does not imply that the structure violates the safety code. However, a name tag on a door may lead to unfair action by a building department that is officially only focused on code safety, not zoning laws.

As a news platform, Yid Info will continue to follow the developments out of Rockland. The public is asked to share with us any video evidence of possible abuses by the newly-formed Building Department. The need to follow safety rules is no pass for government inspectors to storm into homes without proper authority.
