Property owners are typically required by local statutes to maintain their lawns, but when a property goes through foreclosure, the maintenance may not get done. Our affiliates at WTOL Call 11 For Action in Toledo report on a property that is growing wild, to the frustration of its neighbors. The property is currently vacant, and the neighbors noticed the yard growing out of control about two years ago. With nobody taking responsibility and mail piling up at the property, neighbors started taking it upon themselves to cut back the overgrowth to preserve the appearance of their neighborhood and stop pests from taking residence. Finally, they reached out to WTOL’s Call 11 For Action for help. The station contacted the city’s code enforcement division, who confirmed they’d have crews begin maintaining the property within a week. The owner of the property will be billed for the service, wherever they may be.
