Well said, Khaki. The whole process is so frustrating - and some people
have been getting away with it for too long.

It's very difficult for me being a single woman to do the things that need
to be done - and it sucks even more when I see neighbors who maybe have more
ability than I do, but choose to do nothing!



I couldn't agree more about not being punished for our neighbor's
lack of
caring for those who have no choice but to remain. However, we don't
to put too much money into a home, first, not knowing how we will
fare out
with LRA which hasn't yet been determied, secondly, not knowing
whether or
not something will be done about our neighbor leaving the parish,
only to
buy a beautiful home elsewhere, leaving a very nasty pool behind for
us to
deal with when it comes to snakes, mosquitos, and children being
drawn to a
very dangerous condition. I understand your thinking that our
waiting on
FEMA guidelines to be adopted is bull but so is dumping money (that
we don't
have) into a neighborhood that doesn't seem to be coming back. We
are just
trying to do what would be correct in order to not hurt our chances
of being
charged higher than necessary insurance costs. Since Katrina we and
neighbor have been religiously cutting grass for neighbors on our
right and
left, trying to keep cirtters away from our modest trailer. Too bad
I can't
send my neighbors a bill for this but we do it to protect our
property. But
rest assured that gesture is coming to an abrupt halt. I think the
way to
deal with this is to turn their names and addresses over to the
council and have them place the lien on the people that have been
away with this for too damn long.
