    The neighbor still has many junk cars / trucks stored on the empty lot. He parked them next to the poor dentist office. Doesn't make them look professional or in a good neighbor hood.

    About 3 trucks and 2 cars. All appear broken and bad plates. One is even missing many parts. He also has ones stored on the street. So check for bad or out of area plates.

    We been asking for this to be resolved for 10 years. Well documented here. Any reason why the city can't shut down this illegal junk yard, storage yard, tow yard, and repair shop ? Repair shops need to be licensed on concrete or ashphalt and then work done in a building. with fence.

    Anyone else tired of this ? Feel free to post pictures too.

    The new landlord of 7319 Marshall Ave. came onto my property when I was not home and attached his fence to my face. When approached, both the landlord and the handman went inside and refused to answer the door.

  • 7509 Kentucky Ave Hammond IN 46323, United States - Hammond
    Wood fence on North side of property is not secured to any post. It is just leaning against the chain-link fence that is also out of code because it is over 5 foot high. The wood fence has nail sticking out towards the neighbor side as it leans on the chain-link fence encroaching on the neighbors property, this fence needs to be brought up to code. Also it has pieces of wire from the chain-link fence sticking out just like the nail sticking out of the wood fence. A serious injury is going to occur not to mention these fences are not supposed to be over 5 feet this fence is 5'6" needs to be taken down and brought into compliance and the sharp wires and nails need to be addressed immediately along with the leaning fence that is going to fall onto the neighbors property and damage vehicles, watercraft, and trailers

    Neighbors have mounted electrical lights, two trees with a bunch of extension cords and bundled wires up in the trees. This is against the national electric code adopted by Hammond and is a fire hazard. They have also wires to the neighbors fence.
