D.C. Council chairman and mayoral candidate Vincent C. Gray faces a daily fine for a building code violation.
WASHINGTON (AP) D.C. Council chairman and mayoral candidate Vincent C. Gray will be fined $300 a day for a building code violation.
D.C. Department of Transportation spokeswoman Karyn LeBlanc confirmed that her department will mail the first citation notice Tuesday and "each day until the matter is resolved."
On Friday D.C. Attorney General Peter Nickles scolded the agency and the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs for threatening to fine Gray in letters but not acting. He is being fined for not filing a public-space permit application for a 6-foot-high aluminum fence he built around his house in 2008.
Gray's spokeswoman Doxie McCoy said Tuesday that Gray's attorney had been in contact with officials and that the necessary paperwork had been submitted.
