A nuisance abatement has been enacted on a rental property on West 15th. It has been a long time since I have heard of one. This must be a combination of out of town landlord and terrible tennants against the neighborhood. I’m glad to see the neighborhood won for a change. It seems neighbors who are unhappy with rental situations have few recourses. Couple that with a landlord with an attitude and things get trickier. If these absentee landlords would just remember that their tennants are guests in our neighborhoods things could go smoother.
The special election for 4 year terms on the city council is fast approaching. I am against this idea, will vote so, and will not be a happy camper if this passes. I believe it will just give some council members a reason to become more asinine than they already are. If you want my vote, earn it.
