518 John St Jacksonville, TX
No one has lived in this house for years, and the owners rarely come by to check on it. Every few months, probably after they receive a citation, they have someone mow, or more like bale, the yard. The house sits in the center of the block and everyone around it has had problems with raccoons, rodents, and various other wildlife. When the owners do come, they have a hose hooked up to a pump, and they pump the rainwater that has accumulated in the basement out of the basement and allow it to drain down the street. I've seen the pump run for days at a time and still be removing large quantities of water. i know of several neighbors who have spent thousands of dollars getting raccoons removed from their attics and walls of their houses. Something needs to be done about houses that are left to sit and deteriorate, and bring down the property values of neighbors' property. This is the textbook definition of a neighborhood nuisance.
