Run down places
I hate eyesores

United States

#1 Apr 8, 2012
How many run down, dilapidated, condemned, ready to fall over or mysteriously catch on fire buildings are the people of Marshall, Tx. going to allow before they get with the program and force the city to upgrade their approach to addressing the eyesores that plague the city. I hope it's not the old "WHO YA' KNOW" syndrome that keeps slum lords from assuming the responsibility of keeping their "HOUSES IN ORDER".

If the appraisal district can fly their planes over the county and at a whim increase an appraisal from a few thousand feet, than the slugs that run the city can certainly see from "Eye Level" while they ride around the town, that they need to enforce building codes and begin either seizing or forcing the owners of the properties to clean up their messes. I don't care what the excuse is for this evidently obvious oversight, literally, but instead irradicate these vermin infested, party house, indigent hangouts, fire prone, termite infested and allow to migrate the neighborhood, threats to the health and well being of it's citizens.

It's all financial; things like "BUY A GOLF COURSE, SPECULATE ON PURCHASE OF MANUFACTURING AREAS" that seem to fuel the city. If they are going to neglect certain obligations then we need to find people in the local government that are willing to do a better job of making Marshall a better looking place the people would actually want to live in. How much tax is each eyesore paying? SEIZE THE PLACE!!!!!
