426 W. Berry has been red-tagged since 2008. And every year it's the same old story, tall grass and unshoveled sidewalks. The city has repeatedly cited this house. Lately, someone came by and mowed the law, piling up the clippings behind the house for rodents to fester in.
Yesterday, a contractor's van was spotted backed in the driveway and the noises of construction could be heard inside. According to the city's website, no permits have been pulled for construction.
The construction is a sign of progress, but the homeowners on West Berry Avenue want to ensure that the owners of 426 W. Berry are constructing everything to code. We suspect this property is going to be rented soon, so we want to sure it is thoroughly inspected and registered.
