City Council Votes to Keep Tabs on Problem Properties

(8-11-14) The City Council has unanimously approved an ordinance that will help the city create a registry of vacant homes and buildings in order to help deal with neglected and abandoned properties. 

Council Chairman Doug Emery is more than happy about the ordinance.

"This will give the city another tool in the tool box to go after those properties that are the worst of the worst," Emery said.

Councilman Jonathan Cook is glad that the wait is over.

"I think this is a really important ordinance to address," Cook said. "I'm excited to see how this works and pleased to be voting for it today."

The idea behind the ordinance is that keeping tabs on problem properties will help get them fixed or torn down more quickly.
