This is a serious problem in many communities. All cities should come on strong to make these home owners and/or renters of some homes know that they, like the rest of the neighbors have to maintain the property. It is utterly sickening to smell dog feces that is never picked up (for years), to the point it is difficult to even sit in your own yard, that ironically you maintain and pay taxes on. Recently a home exactly like this was told to mow the grass. They did, right over all the dog feces, sticks, piles of leaves and other trash that has been sitting in the yard for years. The inspectors should come back and go directly into the back yard and make them pick up the dog feces, and everything else, not just roll over it with a lawn mower. Broken windows with tape, old doors, mounds of old leaves sitting in the driveway, Parking on the grass areas that turns into mud holes. This depreciates the value of the unfortunate neighbors homes.
