A D.C. Council oversight committee hearing on Monday sparked outrage from dozens of residents frustrated by the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs, which has failed to provide building permit tracking data online as required by law.
Council member Vincent Orange, the at-large independent whose chairs the committee that oversees DCRA, noted chronic problems with the agency — including its failure to comply with the Freedom of Information Act — but he hailed the District’s recent building boom as a good sign for DCRA.
