More City Hall Phone Pranks

What would you think if you received a notice from the Department of Permit & Inspection Services Rental Registration Program telling you that you were in violation of 264-4a of the City of Buffalo Charter and Ordinances, and that if you didn’t take action within 5 days you’d be open to an inspection and/or court action and a possible order to vacate all dwelling units involved? Additionally, you could be subject to a $75 fine.
That’s what just happened to the First Amendment Club.
If you received a letter like that, wouldn’t you want to call the number they tell you to call to address this urgent matter?
Sucker! It’s just another example of those whacky tricksters down at city hall, setting up a phone prank like the problematic 311 line.

I guess that’s one way to encourage people to drive over to city hall and feed those spiffy new parking kiosks.
