There is a property in my neighborhood that has been vacant for some time. Can anything be done about it?
Vacant properties are tricky. Most times, the reason the property is vacant and falls into a state of disrepair is due to a foreclosure process. In this case, the property is in limbo and the City does not have a person or entity to contact for removal of violations. If you know of a property that is vacant, please report it and a case will be opened. The ownership records will be monitored regularly and action taken as soon as legally possible.
