Top 5 construction violations in Oregon, January to April 2016

You would be making a safe bet if you wagered that the top five construction violations during the first four months of 2016 would not change much over the remainder of the year. The order may change slightly, but not the status, and that's unfortunate. These five rules are easy to comply with and the violations are easy to spot - even if you are not a compliance officer.
