There's more trouble for the embattled Town and Country Apartment Complex on Binghamton's Northside.

The housing complex was the scene of a fatal shooting on the 4th of July.

That has triggered renewed scrutiny into crime and other quality of life issues at Town and Country.

Last week, Mayor Rich David's administration released statistics showing the complex has been the subject of more than 1,500 police calls in the last six years.

Now, the city's code enforcement department has conducted an inspection and is reporting 20 violations in the apartment buildings.

The Mayor's office and the property's management have been embroiled in counter-accusations over the threat of a possible partial lockdown of the complex.

Town and Country says the city failed to send a representative to a recent tenants meeting, while the Mayor and Police Chief say they weren't invited.

Mayor David plans his own meeting with residents tomorrow night at 7 p.m. at Centenary-Chenango Street United Methodist Church.
