No one involved will be prosecuted.
But aside from eviscerating the parties who played a role in the fatal blaze, the grand jury also offered recommendations at the end of its 110-page report to help avoid future catastrophes.
Officials, the grand jury said, should:
* Change the Crimes Code so that a property owner could be held criminally liable if anyone is injured or killed because of the owner's failure to remedy fire- or building-code violations.
* Have an outside agency evaluate L&I "top to bottom" because of "numerous failures" in the agency's dealings with the Lichtensteins long before the Buck factory was consumed by flames.
* Require L&I to verify whether an applicant for a property license or permit has any outstanding code violations or tax delinquencies at other properties.
* Ensure that L&I logs citizen complaints about dangerous properties into its system, and not mark them as "resolved" until the code violations are actually corrected.
* Allow city agencies, like L&I and the Revenue Department, to have easy access to one another's records about property owners.
In a statement last night, Deputy Mayor for Public Safety Everett Gillison noted that L&I and Fire Department officials now meet to discuss dangerous properties, which was another grand-jury recommendation.
City Councilman Dennis O'Brien also introduced legislation last week to create a searchable database of the city's vacant buildings, and a task force to deal with the issue.
