There are a lot of homes like this unfortunately. My friend lives next to a house that doesn't have a wall or plumbing and smells to high heaven. There are a couple abandoned homes with holes in the roof down the road from me.

We just do not have the money to tear down all the homes that need to be torn down. The county is holding on to some money we were granted a few years back. must have gone to a severance package for one of Ficano cronies.

disagree on punk........we were once a city that had businesses and people were proud of thier homes........once....my street has many mt homes as well and if out Manager had a brain she would contact the owners either it be banks/morgage companies or people and order them to at least board up the homes then it wouldn't be too bad

Would be great if the owners would board up these homes, or face a fine if they don't.

They are pretty brave to boldly lie to your face like that. We've had squatters in these abandoned homes and called the cops. If they have warrants they go to jail, if not they are told to leave. Our jails just cannot hold all the people. What a shame, in a city of 10 thousand there is no room in jail.
