Locksmith gets stuck with violations

The Department of Sanitation has recently issued a total of 500 notices of violations to a man who had been posting stickers all over Manhattan advertising “L&M Locksmith” and “24 HR Emergency Locksmith” with phone numbers, according to a March 17 announcement by City Councilmember Christine Quinn. The Environmental Control Board will hold a hearing on the violations in early April, according to Kate Seely-Kirk, an aide to Quinn. The councilmember was the co-sponsor last year of legislation that made it illegal to post such advertising fliers on private property.

The Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation issued a press release hailing the Department of Sanitation’s enforcement.
