Good for the city! They need to start forcing these lazy property owners to fix up a property or lose it! Maybe that will get them going!

the one that should have been escorted out was jon tully, he got a one year contract for over $230,000.00 of our hard earned tax dollars, i cant help but wonder how much he has on our councilmen and mayor, to have allowed this outreageous amount of $$$, even our governor susana martinez doesent eearn that much in one year. think about it brother and sister taxpayers.

Why didn't they condem the one on Alameda and Church a long time ago? Now it's just sitting there all burned up, what a sore sight. Sounds like alot of our city workers are not doing their jobs! Who's the mayor now? SHouldn't that be his job to watch the city employees? Or is it the city manager Tully guy making $230k a year?

its because of who you are.....if they want to they will do this to you.....if not they leave you alone....now i never said to have your property abandoned and run down....but this property is next to the old metal recycling yard and there is only a few houses in the area that are nice....and if the old lady that lives out of state cant do anything with it and her kids cant either because its tied up legally then the city needs to take this into account and come up with alternate means of protecting property rights and yet preserving the safety and welfare of the community....i have a couple of small houses next door that are abandoned and i do what i can to keep them clean in front and people out and keep an eye out that druggies dont enter and such...everybody in the neighborhood should do their part...
