The City of Waco green tagged apartments at the Arlington Farms Apartments on Friday.

City workers were green tagging Arlington Farms Apartments, on 1800 Primrose Drive in Waco, after residents said they went up after home inspections.

Here are what the green tags mean:

This is the intermediate level of code enforcement which declares a structure repairable but prohibits occupancy. In this condition, the structure should be vacated and repairs made. A structure is unfit for human occupancy whenever the code official or his/her agent finds that the structure is unsafe, unlawful or, because of the degree to which the structure is in disrepair or lacks maintenance, is unsanitary, vermin infested, contains filth and contamination or, lacks ventilation, illumination, sanitary or heating facilities or other essential equipment required to the code, or because the location of the structure constitutes a hazard to the occupants of the structure or to the the public. These structures are considered repairable. The owner will be given notice of a hearing and must attend a meeting of the Building Standards Commission to discuss time schedules concerning the repair of the structure and civil penalties if repairs are not completed within a specified time frame.
