Butch,

You, and the lady, are, in my opinion, totally and responsibly right in what you wrote.

I threw in some Comments as to what could keep you from reaching your objectives which are to make the community safe and wholesome in its appearance. My 'digs' are intended for the bankers, lawyers, politicians and judges who are feloniously stealing our nation. My Comments are not personal toward the lady unless she is aware of the thefts.

keithkaye - you do have a point as to the real owner or proof as "lawful" owner - but maybe this new ordinance could somehow read as a foreclosure process it is with intent to own and assume the responsibility to keep the property reasonably presentable and maintain a level of safety along with neighborhood pride - let's face it - some areas are really getting out of hand with the new buzz word "BLIGHT"

So Ms. Developer Lady, let’s look at these properties another way. You want incorporation but you don’t have a financial base to push the issue. But, with all those foreclosed properties just sitting there your ‘new’ city could declare them to be “abandoned” and take title. The ‘new city’ taxpayers would then be obliged to foot the bill to renovate them and the ‘new’ city could borrow money against the titles; a never-ending money-pit for developers and future public servants to feed from. Along with the shenanigans the County Tax Assessor has been playing with contrived and inflated property values you would have yourself an instant, prima facie flow of funds; another scam. The fact the properties are stolen would mean nothing to your ‘new city’ residents as the ole slop bucket would stay full for all to gobble up. Except for the taxpayers, that is. But hey, who would notice with a nice shiny new city?!

You are in a Catch-22 and probably don't even realize it, or have chosen not to be truthful about it.

Just because a home has been foreclosed-on does not mean the foreclosing agency actually owns the Note or the home. In order to force someone to clean it up would require proof that you have actually located the lawful owner. The reason these 'foreclosed' properties are not being 'moved'? No one can OR WILL produce the real owner. It is one huge scam but no one will tell the truth; except for me that is. I haven't lied yet but you clowns hide behind, silence.
