Officials conducted their initial investigation of The Hub complex May 9, giving property management until July 25 to make needed corrections. The scheduled follow-up inspection was delayed due to a fatal shooting at the facility. An institute student is wanted in connection with the shooting. The follow-up inspection for the facility was held Wednesday and numerous violations were found throughout the complex.
The Hub was issued notice of citations for the following fire code violations:
o Smoke detectors not working or missing
o Singular portable fire extinguisher out of date
o Fireplaces within the units not sealed
o No paperwork to indicate a fire hydrant inspection
o Locked dead bolted exit door for egress to exterior from lobby area
In addition, code enforcement cited The Hub for the following violations:
o Accumulated trash
o Three inoperable vehicles with expired tags on site
o Illicit discharge of paint into the storm drain and a lack of maintenance on the storm drains, with trash and stagnant water present
o Loose handrails
o Unauthorized dilapidated fence
An Aug. 15 court date has been set in Sandy Springs Municipal Court to address the charges. Fire rescue will re-inspect The Hub Thursday to determine if corrections have been made to ensure smoke detectors are present and in working order.
