Looks like there's activity to organize all the stuff, and the pool's covered. Thanks.
Cover on swimming pool = good. Still large amounts of debris in the backyard.
It has the appearance of _trying_ to be organized somehow, but it's still organized junk.
Happened to walk past as the garage - similarly packed with stuff - was open.
Again, I think it's not the government's business to tell us how neat we should be, but it does have a role in preventing public health hazards, such as obvious breeding places for vermin.
I think it's worth saying that - as much as that home situation is distasteful - I don't think we should generally be encouraging governmental intervention into how neat our home is, or how much stuff we own. A room full of boxes, well cared for, is none of my neighbors' business, nor the government's.
But, the line is drawn if that place is a hazard - vermin, mosquitos, or even a biological/health or fire hazard is where I think we have a right to be protected. Truly, there are only three main issues, and they're regarding public safety:
1) the unprotected pool, which could lead to injury/death
2) the pool's stagnant water, which we are repeatedly warned can lead to mosquito breeding
3) the presumably unsafe interior, which makes it a potential public health hazard.
So, the fence repair and the regular vector inspection are mandatory, from anyone's perspective. I would think it's in the best interests of the owners or any others who would be responsible for problems caused by inaction or negligence.
