The KNS has an investigative series this week on blighted properties around the city. They single out property owners for various violations. They also created a database of complaints as part of the series. Here's an interesting one:
Address: 5115 WOODGLEN DR

Maybe the KNS should check their own database and do a follow-up report on whether these "major violations" have been addressed.R. Neal's blog | | |
