Housing

Resident frustrated that residences are sitting empty

Have you noticed all of the wealthy landowners that have boarded up houses or empty lots? Many of them have been in that state for more than a year.

I find that unacceptable and would suggest for every year with no progress, double the taxes and the year after that, triple them. Anyone who can sit on a vacant lot or boarded up properties deserves to be penalized because there are people here desperately needing and wanting affordable housing. Please voice your opinion and let’s get rid of these eyesores.
