Falling to pieces

New buildings, old buildings, in-between buildings ---- who gets to say when they get dangerous?

Members of the city's Dangerous Structure Determination Board were discussing the Oaks on Bandera, an apartment complex on the city's Northwest Side where a stairway had collapsed on Jan. 7, fatally injuring a resident.

During the meeting, small white and blue pieces of plaster broke free from the high, decorated ceiling in the council chambers. The largest pieces almost struck a city inspector. No one was injured.

(from the Express-News)

Their meeting had to be evacuated.

Perhaps they will now demolish their own building without due process...
