A reader was concerned about these properties and how they are devaluing the area around them. Are maintenance codes enforced? The captions were written by the reader.
Recently closed Heartland Printing on IAA drive. Should owner of commercial property be allowed to walk away and leave ugly property. Owner should be required to at least paint the place.
Empire & Prairie. I have several times over the past few years notified Alderperson Buragas about the absentee landlord leaving junk on the curb for extended periods. The city should pick it up or order a private party to pick it up and charge the landlord the cost plus a sizeable fine.
Behind Kilarneys Pub, 521 N. Main St. Alderperson Schmidt should order a paint job for this commercial eyesore.
C2 East Bldg. If owner could not or did not want to finish the job, city should have hired a contractor completed the decking and put a lien on the property. This is also in Alderperson Schmidt’s ward.
