1300 block of Gertrude Street is visited by the cops every week, sometimes multiple times a week. What is going on down there? I'm starting to think this isn't a good neighborhood for my family.
Who lives down there and what kinds of trouble are they causing?

A bunch of young people are there. I lived in those duplexes over 20 years ago when the neighborhood was good. Moving wont help your family unless you move out of Salem all together.
Probably drugs. Lock your doors and get a guard dog.

It's the welfare-disability clowns who have nothing to do and no purpose other than drinking from early morning until they are stupid drunk. Then the fights start, bring out the cages.Hold the landlords responsible and rezone Salem. Clear out the trash.

What are the other problem areas in Salem? Go to a city council meeting and complain about all of the areas. Take real action instead of running your mouth on a tashy gossip site, you might see some positive results. Give it a try and then post that.

Try contacting the landlord. If that doesn't work go to a city council meeting and complain, or the mayor.

I feel sorry for the homeowners on that street. The can't just rent another home somewhere. They are stuck.

What do you mean by rezone Salem? I can see where you could hold the landlord responsible but how can you rezone a town to keep people from renting an apartment or house?

You don't know as much as you think. Some of those people are there, and some are not.

The problem is there are innocent people who live on that street and have to deal with all the trouble. It doesn't matter who is causing the trouble. They will likely always cause truoble, so worrying about who they are will do no good.

The homeowners in the neigborhood, need to contact the landlord, each and every time there is a problem. Eventually with enough calls, that landlord is going to boot them out.

Everyone just hope they don't move in to your neighborhood!

If I was a slumlord with trashy property, I wouldn't care what my renters did to my property either.

Sometimes it just dose not pay to fix stuff,let the people move,then fix it.If you have rental property you know what i am saying.In the last 7-8 years i bet i have put in 15-20 storm doors.
