DETROIT (AP) - Detroit inspectors are putting city apartment building owners on notice to have their heating systems working amid cold weather or face potential fines.

The city says Wednesday its Building Safety, Engineering and Environmental Department is targeting 143 buildings that over the past year have been issued orders to address issues with heating and cooling systems.

Inspectors have been visiting the buildings to determine whether the ordered fixes have been made. If they haven’t, tickets and fines are being issued. The department is hiring additional inspectors and accepting inspection reports from two inspection companies.

The Building Safety, Engineering and Environmental Department also is accepting complaints from residents about heating problems or other serious issues.
