Description

This house has been vacant since it caught fire in March 2003. On top of being a complete eyesore, there have also been problems with rodents. The township doesn't seem to care since she still pays her taxes (practically nothing because of the damage) and she comes by to mow the lawn. She collected the insurance money and did god knows what with it but it surely didnt go into rebuilding her property. The residents on this strret keep their homes lovely and this is bringing their value down. Within the past year she did put the property up for sale........$200,000! At this point it will be a complete tear down & rebuild and in this economy good luck getting that asking price! I wish the township would finally step in and do something about this matter.
