Doesn't this town have a junk ordinance? Is it being enforced???

Appliances, more appliances, junk "boats" and "cars." Broken, unusable toys and bicycles. And sometimes just plain trash!

And they wonder why tourists don't want to drive into Ti!

See Section 307 of the 2010 Property Maintenance Code of NYS.

And no, its not being enforced. Just like most of our local and state building codes.

Who is supposed to be enforcing this ordinance?

Can the town fine property owners? The town can get cleaned up and get revenue at the same time. Right?

Bill Ball, code officer

Reports to town board, who have no idea what it is he's supposed to be doing.

Okay. Well, I guess that's explains things.

(I suppose then that the neighbor that has had the toilet sitting in their yard for so long that it is now growing vegetation will get to keep it. Wow.)

Then, why are is the Town paying for a code officer if he isn't doing his job?

A blind person could point out some of these places because they are so disgusting! In other words, the property owner isn't taking responsibility AND the code enforcement officers isn't taking responsibility.

So when you drive by that nasty house at the top of Lord Howe you ignore the trash that's piled up floor to roof?? I'm sure that makes the value of the house go up right? Ticonderoga is nothing but trash. always have and always will be...trash!

Just imagine what the back of the house must look like. Someone told me that a large animal was tied up in the backyard and starved to death there. Like a horse or a cow. At least I think that's the house.

Actually, if I were a neighbor, I would be in the assessor's office and in the supervisor's office and asking for a really big reduction in my property taxes. Because that's what property kept like that does to every neighborhood, lowers the value of each house. Disgusting.

So I'm told. This is the product of the welfare system. They help (read: you, taxpayer, pay) for a house for a poor person. Well, I'm not 100% for or against such a program.

Too often, this is what ends up happening. There will often be fraud perpetrated by the buyer, or some other such crime. There are strict stipulations that come with this kind of program. What I don't know is who
enforces the contract?

People can get kicked off the program and lose the property for a large variety of reasons. I think the neighbors should look into that. Enough is enough.

The dump looks better than many houses in Ticonderoga. They are slobs. Don't even want to imagine what the inside of these homes look like.

It was a baby bull, the poor thing was starved and then hung and nobody could do anything because the house is zoned as a farm from who knows how long ago...it use to be a very nice house. I feel bad for their neighbors and their children who apparently roam around outside unclothed...sad.

The cops are there on a regular basis, so they can probably give you an earful about what it looks like, or smells like, on the inside. Dear God...

WHAT are you talking about?! Farmland or no farmland, there are laws about how you can treat an animal. And why on earth would someone "hang" an animal? Any animal? If it needed to be put down, that is what vets are for, for God's sake!

Did anyone call the proper authorities and report this?

Many just need some paint and spucing up. Not a lot of this going on, just the same ones over and over again.

Yes, actually someone I know called and reported it...the baby bull, and that was the answer they were give about the farm zoning, the bull was dead before they hung it....duh. It was hung like a deer to bleed out. Im sure it's illegal to hang any living animal. Any ways it was a heartless and disgusting act.
Illegal

It is illegal--not to mention obscenely CRUEL and STUPID--to STARVE an animal. No matter how the property is "zoned."
