825 Florence Street Jacksonville, Texas
I live at 825 Florence Street and on either side of us are 2 abandoned Lots. These lots are very overgrown and about once or twice a year I will finally get the city of Jacksonville to come out and brush hog it but I don't know if you realize it or not, it can't just be done once and then left, because it seems to make it come back worse than before. It needs to be done every few months. It's gotten so bad this time that people come to my house and comment on it. Also you can't even see my house from either side of the street and it has made the snake problem get worse, probably due to the small animals and rodents that are living in it. Last year we had a 5 ft long very aggressive cottonmouth get in our kitchen! What really gets me is that last year the city threatened to fine us because we had a couch, that we used to sit on, on our front porch and a gate that was between my fence and my house that I used to keep my dogs in the backyard, they said these items were eyesores and threatened to fine us! I can count right off the top of my head at least 10 houses that I know of that have couches on their front porch, and if you ride through the Northside of Jacksonville and even some places on the south side you will see that people put couches and chairs on their front porches so that they can sit and visit! And nothing is ever said to them. But that is neither here nor there. I just can't believe that y'all would call those things in my yard eyesores when the overgrown jungle as I call it, on each side of my house is definitely an eyesore!
