Blight is a serious problem

In (last) Sunday’s paper, nine Parkersburg City Council members had a complaint about trash around homes and homes falling down. I certainly agree with them.

I live on a street where I bought two homes years ago. It makes me ashamed to tell anyone I live on this street. The home beside me has trash filled in back, other homes are as bad. I have complained to Code for three years, they don’t have the help to get things cleaned up. The owners won’t do anything.

When Mayor Colombo was in power, he got it done or threatened to fine them.

Please listen to Mike Reynolds and the others on City Council.

I am so tired of looking at trash. No one could sell homes in this area at a decent price.

Please help me and others. I would hate to try to sell and move.
