  • Inspect apartments for health code violations such as vermin (cockroaches, rodents), and lack of maintenance (electrical, plumbing, structural)
  • Investigate citizens' complaints regarding general sanitation and nuisance problems
  • Make referrals to other agencies such as Building and Safety, Vector Control District, Fire Department, and Zoning
