RAMAPO, N.Y. -- Rockland County officials announced Monday that their yearlong battle against slumlords had paid off financially and forced the landlords to clean up their properties, according to lohud.com.

County Executive Ed Day and county Health Department officials said that although the initiative is far from over, they had made great headway in tackling the ongoing problem with an increase in complaints and inspections since the initiative began a year ago. Day said the county had issued $453,166 in fines compared with $53,637 during the same time period last year, said lohud.com.

The Rockland Codes Initiative, which uses the sanitary laws and heavy fines to force slumlords to improve their properties, also includes hiring more housing inspectors and an online reporting system for residents. In addition, the county also posts the Worst Landlord Watch List online, added lohud.com.
