As you know I have been bitching about the abondoned house behind me and their disgusting uncovered green pool.
Now, these cities and townships, many of which have only sparingly dealt with such issues in the past, are forced to create new policies and spend more time and money fixing up thousands of properties left in limbo by foreclosure.
From draining or occasionally demolishing skanky pools to cutting down dangerous trees, crews are working overtime to keep neighborhoods looking good and property values stable.
The article states that my city is in the process of drafting an ordinance to help them deal with unkempt pools.
They also stated that they want quicker access to properties with abandoned pools to prevent public health hazards.
I am calling our Ordinace Officer today and tell him I seen the article and wonder when they are going to tackle the pool behind us.Posted by Quality Weenie at June 23, 2008 07:59 AM | TrackBack
