SALISBURY, NC (WBTV/AP) –
Officials in Salisbury are praising Livingstone College for working to reduce the number of fire code violations at the school.
City officials and Livingstone College tell WBTV that City Manager Doug Paris said a recent meeting with college President Jimmy Jenkins had been productive.
Officials say Livingstone has had more than 1,000 fire code violations in the past four years and accrued more than $63,000 in fines. City officials say as of last month, all but eight of the violations have been resolved.
Jenkins has thanked the city for helping Livingstone develop a plan to reduce violations and false alarms.
Jenkins says the school’s staff is working on a proposal to cover the fines.
