I'm new in town and have noticed that there are Foxes living in my neighbors empty house. Othere neighbors say the house has been empty for a couple of years. My question is, does the Public works have traps to try and catch them or should I call someone else? Thank You.

I doubt public works has traps, but it can't hurt to ask. Good luck!

I'd call too. Worst they can say is that they can't help. They are also keeping (have access to) a database now of foreclosed/abandoned homes to keep track of who owns them (which banks) so they can get on them about keeping up the property. Perhaps if you have no success with the PW department, call the village hall so they can contact the owners of the property?

Midlo resident there's a house down the block from me that was supposedly going through renovations but now has a stop order on the door. Anyway, it has a hole in the siding right in front. I'm guessing this house newintown is referring to also has some exterior damage that allowed them to get in. Animals will find a way if they want it badly enough.

The way that Wondering Why character always pops up and defends the 5 yr lady I'm suprised that he didn't jump in and say she was a hot fox.

You're an idiot. You are just the reason that a lot of people quit posting. Someone new comes on, asks a legit question, gets adecent answer from someone who knows and a troll like you has a smart remark.

Two foreclosed homes on my block...in the summer I had to call every 10 days or so to get the grass cut. If I didn't call it would get 2' tall. Sometimes it took multiple phone calls.

Why?
