Am I the only one that thinks that Paris Code Enforcement is doing a terrible job. Paris looks like a junk yard. Junk in yards, cars on blocks, dilapidated homes , apartments and buildings.

Whats up with all the business and their metal buildings.

Paris has so much potential.

Just because it says I'm in Fort Worth doesn't mean I'm not in Paris. I can change my IP address if I want. If you have the know how you can too.

Code enforcement ignores many things, even when they are reported numerous times. Sometimes it is who the owner is, and some things they just don't care about.

I agree that Pairs does look trashy. All the run down houses and buildings falling down and empty. Why doesn't the city get their act together and clean up this town. It used to look so nice years ago until the city let it get like this. I know they could clean it up. Tear down the old junky empty houses and buildings. What good are they anyway? Get on the ball and start giving people fines that won't clean up their property and mow it and haul off the junk! This is ridiculous for such a nice pleace to go down the drain. I used to brag about my home town now i look at it and it's not the same and never will be again unless someone steps up and cares enough to make it nice and clean again.

Forget about your IP address....just change your address. Ft. Worth will work!

This is actually the first time I have agreed with you. You are 100% correct in the evaluation of Paris' aesthetics.

They have a huge list, and growing, of houses that are vacated and are now being torn down by the city. They are mostly small abandoned homes. Some of the larger businesses need to be torn down as well, I know.

The sad thing is that landowners/homeowners are not being held responsible for their problem. It should not be up to the city to tear down any home - it should be the homeowner. Fine the owner and if that doesn't work arrest them and put them in jail until the fine/cost for tearing down Their property is worked off. Make the homeowner assist with the teardown. Why should the city have to be out this expense? It's not city business to tear down old homes - it is the Homeowner. I agree the city is in sad shape but the issue should be handled differently. This is just another type of entitlement. The Sorry people think everything should be free to them. End the insanity now.

Give us an example of one you've reported numerous times that's not had some action taken. I know some of those folks, so maybe I can put in a word for you.

They're tearing down houses all over Paris -- if you look at the newspaper, you'll see each month probably a couple of dozen on the list. You might have checked with them before you posted and let everybody know you don't know what you're talking about.

That works if you can find the property owner -- many of these, they don't even know where they are. Many of them are tied up in estates and have multiple owners -- do you suggest putting the whole family in jail? The city does put a lien on the properties, so if they are ever sold, we get the money back. The city is in a no-win situation -- if they tear them down, they shouldn't be doing it -- if they don't tear them down, they should be doing it -- if they put the property owners in jail, I can just see the screaming fits and the letters to the editors and the diatribes on Topx.
