How long are the residents of this area going to have to look at this trashy home before something is done about it? Now there is an old, beat up Ford Explorer in the side yard. Where the heck is code enforcement? I know lots of properties have been reported but they still lokk the same months (even years) later.
The old doctors building on the corner of Turnpike and Martin St. that's now a massage therapy clinic, is someone living in there too? Now there is a shed in the parking lot and a dog tied up out back, that looks real nice. It's turning into yet another eyesore that code enforcement will turn a blind eye to.
This town is starting to look like some third world country.

Thats is what happens when the "buddy system" is used to hire people. We need to look at and evaluate who we have as "leaders" in Clearfield borough.

If you think that house is bad try living next door to the one on Fifth Street. The owner lives in Florida and has been cited and has done nothing about it. The grass was only mowed once this summer, the front porch is falling in, the fence is falling down and you should see the amount of funiture under the back deck. I couldn't sell my house if I wanted to, who would want to live next to this dump!!!!!

What does being cited do? Are they given so many days and then fined or are they given so many days and then "threatened" with a fine? Maybe Code Enforcement should change their name to Code Suggestions.

Go after these landlords that demand rent but dont put a dime into the houses they rent out. I agree with What Else Is New, You cant swing a dead cat in Clearfield without hitting hypocrites, And most often its the landlords, not the tenents.

From what I was told she was cited and informed that she is not allowed to rent it out again till the house if brought up to code. Do you actually think she is going to fork out the money to fix the place? She is an elderly widow living in Florida and still owes money on the dump, why would she want to put anymore in to it. It wasn't to long ago boro council was going to make landlords have their rental properties inspected but a few local landlords (some who don't even pay their property taxes) had a fit about it and it was dropped. If they want to stop having these condemed looking properities around then they need to quit protecting these slum lords and start helping the people of this community who pay their taxes and take care of their properties!!

The majority of landlords ARE NOT slumlords, why would those that have done a good job maintaining their rentals be punsihed with inspection fees because of a few idiots?

Besides, this was another bullshit ploy to get more money and fund another salary of an inside political idiot who can't keep his/her own business afloat.

What the borough could have done was offered some sort of servie to landlords in return for the extra inspection fees. Like a database of bad tenants that either had police, drug, or violent activity or didn't pay tthe rent. This would help landlords choose the right tenants. Landlords could charge an application fee to get a renter's clearance from the borough, which would cover the cost of the inspection fee and administrative operations of the database. This is how it is done in many places throughout the country.

Instead the borough couldn't expand thier thinking and just wanted to punish landlords for doing business and slap on unneccessary fees to those owners that are doing a good job. Just keep increasing taxes and slapping on fees instead of providing a service that would actually alleviate the problem. That's typical Clearfield Borough logic.

You both are doing a fantastic job of displaying Clearfield's native mentality.

And you're back to spelling-correction arguments?

Obsessive stupidity and the constant unleashing of meaningless insults is just as bad as ShawBeatsWomen schmuck that dominates every discussion.

lol

I'm losing interest. There's no productive or rational debate here anymore.

It's not the topic of the discussions that bore me; it's the ridiculous statements that have nothing to do with the discussion because most of you thrive on negative conflict and are unable to engage in productive debate. For example, dumbass:

Someone needs to shut this low life up.

Too lazy to type in the "i"?

Come and get me you hypocrite pig

Queerfield. See you're full of bullshit...as usual.

"What do Clearfield cops and Wal Mart have in commmon?"

Don't blame others for your stupidity or make up stories.

Great job, Taxpayer and Pillar of the community. Like I've said, you're an idiot. Why don't you go chase some feral pussies and give up blogging for awhile.
