DANSVILLE — A Dansville apartment building owner was a no-show in court on Wednesday night to face a slew of of housing violations for his Main Street property.
Kris Voss, did not appear in court to face charges of littering along with a other alleged code violations for his building at 117 Main Street.
“He’s an extremely poor neighbor, disrespectful to his occupants and neglectful as a whole,” said Charlie Perkins, Dansville Police Chief. “This is sadly a very prominent example of a owner who has no skin in the game.”
Voss doesn’t live in Dansville and according to his LinkedIn profile owns Culver Rd. Properties located on Elmwood Ave in Rochester.
According to Chief Perkins, this isn’t Voss’s first time in court for housing violations. The building has sewage bubbling from a drain, apartments with no heat, excessive unlicensed vehicles parked on the property, and emergency exit signs not working.
“Part of law enforcement is ensuring a quality of life for the community,” said Chief Perkins. “Obviously, robberies and other crimes are detrimental to a community but these conditions have an equally detrimental effect on the community.”
The Village Board initiated the action given written notice to Voss through a certified letter.
