Yes.Since the building is owned by the city, do the laws and ordinances of the city and state apply?
Sounds like the lessee is doing something you don't like, and that if the building were inhabited by city personnel itself, they wouldn't be allowed to do it. Am I close?Any and all forms of case law, legal codes welcome.
In any respect, we'll need a lot more information before anyone can definitively say there's something wrong, here. Just because the laws apply doesn't mean they're being violated. Laws which prohibit the city and city personnel from doing something may or may not apply to the lessee. It depends on the nature of the lessee's business, whether they're working directly, partially, or not at all for the city. It also depends on laws specific to that city and state.
1. Which city and state?
2. What's the nature of the lessee's business?
3. Do you have any access to the lease? That's vital in terms of finding out if there are any provisions in the lease which bind the lessee.
