Trash Bins, Bulk trash and Glass in road at this location for over two weeks! Multi-unit Building.
I've also noticed that this property has become a real mess. We have done spring clean-ups here in the past. It would be great to get one going this year.
LCI staff is looking into this issue.
LCI has seen a rise in trash issues recently:
Ben, with respect, it is no one's responsibility to clean up the landlords mess other than the landlord. It also seems that garbage collection from the blue recycle bins has ceased. Again, though the tenants have a primary responsibility to put trash where trash goes and recycling where it should, it is the Landlord's responsibility to enforce this behavior.
Don't get me wrong, I applaud any cleanup effort on the other residents of the neighborhood's behalf, but no one should be regularly cleaning up anyone's mess when the landlords are ignoring the issue.
Can LCI fine or otherwise cite the landlord? If that is possible I would suggest that as a possible route to conformity with basic neighborly decency.
Looks like the property might be in foreclosure.
The tenants should stop paying rent. If the slumlord is not paying his mortgage, why should the tenants pay rent? The tenants probably don't even know that the landlord is abandoning the building - after collecting their rents.
The bank certainly does not want the building - looks bad on their balance sheet, unless they plan on keeping the wildly inflated, appraised price and rehypothecating and leveraging the "asset" ad infinitum.
The building is in a horrible location. for residential use, right next to the highway noise and air pollution and visual blight.
