Apartment landlord appeals $277,200 in fines


ESSEX -- Lawyers for Richard Schlesinger, landlord of the condemned Riverdale Apartments, have appealed his fines to Circuit Court, despite a recent Board of Appeals action that reduced the fines by nearly half.

Attorney Ronald G. Kane of Bethesda called the reduction "woefully deficient." The board ruled Dec. 10 that Riverdale must pay $277,200 for code violations. The county originally sought $1.5 million in fines, then dropped the total to $500,000 in September.

The apartments in the 1800 and 1900 blocks of Eastern Blvd. await demolition. The last tenants were evacuated in June after Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. turned off power because of overdue utility bills of more than $600,000.
