We appreciate all the feedback we have been receiving since the last update. Some questions & concerns have come up that we would like to address.
Abandoned House at 1 Reed Bent Rd
This home has been empty since early 2009. We had our attorney look into the status of the property. The previous owners walked away from the property and had filed bankruptcy. To complicate the situation further, the bank is unable to locate the mortgage documents they need to officially foreclose. The bank had winterized the property years ago and has had different maintenance services come to mow the lawn. It appears that service has ended so we had Burns Landscaping mow the visible areas.
Since the bank cannot foreclose, they cannot sell the property. We are not sure what must be done to obtain a clean title but right now it is very complex. We also have a challenge because we are unable to place a lien on the property for the back dues. Our attorney has been trying to help clear up the situation but it as been a slow process.
Cleaning Up After Pets
We have received some notices about people not cleaning up after their pets. This is an ongoing challenge. Many times this is because kids are walking the dogs, let them poop where ever they want, and do not clean it up. This is also from dog walkers who are negligent. We strongly encourage you to take note of this and please make sure someone is cleaning up after your dog. It is very unpleasant otherwise and it upsets many of the neighbors who take great care of their lawns. We greatly appreciate your cooperation.
We have also received concerning messages about the health of many of our sidewalk trees. Many have very few leaves and do not look healthy. Our plan is to apply healthy doses of fertilizer to help restore them back to good health. We have had to provide this service before and it usually works well with some time.
If you see a common area that is in need of mowing, simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and it will be addressed as quickly as possible. It is a challenge to constantly monitor the growth rate of the lawns but we do the best we can. Burns Landscaping is very easy to work with and does an efficient job fulfilling our service needs.
Have a great day!
