What is the process for houses where the grass is high, the house is still
ungutted, & debris is still in the yard even though a sign has been posted
for the past month informing the owners of the fines & lien ? The owner
never comes back & isn't concerned because SUPPOSEDLY the house is up for
demo (But there isn't any demo sign on it.) We are worried about the grass
harboring snakes & rodents. What other recourse is there ? The intention
behind the lien process is good, but if nothing is done until LRA money is
received or the house is sold, what purpose does it serve ? Those
situations could take months or years. Is the parish sending anyone to cut
the grass & charge the owners ? Again, what can be done ? It's not fair to
the people who have moved back and are trying to keep their properties up.
