Our neighbor's house has an in-ground pool. The pool is filled with garbage, nasty water, and general filth. There is no fence or other barricade, and the smell is horrendous. There are still sandbags around the house, too.

We have an abandoned house next door to us that had a initial clean out but was never sanitized. It has Mold growing on the windows and 20 foot dead pine tree in the front yard that actually leans toward our house. The city has taken care of the yard twice in two years and it stinks. It needs to be demolished and we've notified the city that the tree is dead. I would hate for it to fall on the house we've been rebuilding for two years!

There are 2 homes on 16th ST SW, about 500 Block, one on the East side, and one on the West side which was also run into by a Drunk Driver that need to come down. Why must we need to wait anymore? its only been 29 Months. Does it really take the City/Health Dept that long to do something, do they not see these homes when they are driving around? or is it the 3 blind mice.
