ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

Allentown has a new inductee in a club it would rather not have.

Allentown has inducted Mohinder Kaur into its "Landlord Hall of Shame."

The city says his property in the 600 block of Cedar Street is not fit for human habitation.

It's the subject of several code violations.

"(It) has been years since the city has seen any evidence of Mr. Kaur has done anything to this particular property and quite honestly we're tired of it," said Mayor Ed Pawlowski.

Kaur has addresses in South Whitehall, New York and California.

The city says he owes nearly $6,000 combined in penalties, fees and back taxes.

His property is now under consideration for inclusion on the Allentown Redevelopment Authority's Blighted Property List.
