Since its inception earlier this year, the board has ordered landlords whose properties are havens for drug dealers and gangs to take measures to deter such activity. Aside from getting a judge to enforce its orders, the board had no way to punish the landlord for failing to comply. The vote was the result of a change in state law. If a landlord fails to pay a fine, a lien can be put on the property, officials said. two miles of 1-95 between Congress and Australian avenues and adding sound walls on both sides of 1-95 north of Okeechobee.

Inf. r .... jry INTERCHANGE From IB I City officials have said the in- terchange would be too big, 1 DiocKinGr views or downtown. j It also would encourage more high-speed traffic, they said, at a time when city planners want drivers to slow down. kI think it's good for the downtown area in terms of traffic flow and making it safer," said resident Ralph Kasten, a com--jnuter from West Palm Beach who attended the meeting. ! Besides realigning the ramps "and adding a flyover, the $37.3 jjpjljion project would include: J2J fl Adding one northbound 336e and one sounthbound lane to m : . . j Company being probed in Russia TARANTSEV ' From IB nandez, spokesman for the U.S. ' Attorney's Office, said, t His travels have taken him to ! New York City; Las Vegas; San j; Francisco; Mexico City; Cancun, t Mexico; Miami; Montego Bay, f' Jamaica; the Bahamas; and finally I back to Miami and West Palm ) Beach. Tarantsev's attorney, Richard i Lubin, said Tarantsev was arrest-j ed at The Breakers hotel, where j he was staying while enjoying a f working vacation. Palm Beach is nice place to be when you're from Moscow and it's 5 degrees," he said. Lubin declined to specify the nature of the business Tarantsev was conducting in the U.S. He did say Tarantsev did not sign the visa paperwork that U.S. officials contend contains the false statements. It is common for business people in Russia to have other people obtain their visas to avoid standing in long lines at embassies, Lubin said. "He vehemently denies that he has committed a crime," Lubin said. "His intent, once he gets out of custody, is to stay here until the case is over and to do business from here and then go back to Russia." One of the convictions Tarantsev served time for during the Communist regime was for stealing a coat, Lubin said. Tarantsev is the founder and owner of Russkoye Zoloto (Russian Gold), a Moscow-based company with holdings that include a gold-mining concern, retail space, a travel agency and a fashion firm. Lubin said the company also owns a TV network in Russia. He described Tarantsev as a philanthropist who donates millions of dollars to charities. Russkoye Zoloto has attracted close attention from organized crime investigators in Russia over the past year, and prosecutors have filed court papers charging the company with smuggling, according to the ITAR-Tass news agency. U.S. officials had sought to have Taratsev held without bond because of his frequent travels and because he had escaped a construction work site in Russia where he was serving one of his detentions, Fernandez said.
