Falls City making progress on nuisance properties
12/19/2019

(KLZA)-- Falls City is making an effort to deal with nuisance properties in the community.  However, it is a long process.

During Monday nights City Council meeting City Administrator Gary Jorn noted that a deadline is this week for a trailer house at 1613 Abbott Street that has been going on since March. The City is able to remove the trailer from the property as of December 20. 

Jorn said the City is also moving forward on other nuisance properties around town, including 1916 McLean Street;  the house at 1613 Abbott, the same property where the trailer  house is located and at 1701 Schoenheit Street.

While the City does not  have money budgeted for nuisance abatement,  there has been some money come back to the City from recent nuisance demolitions.  $9-thousand was recouped from the owners of the property at 2215 Lane Street and $28-thousand dollars from the demo's at 1102 Barada Street,  1203 Lane Street and 923 Fulton Street.

Jorn tells MSC News the city is able to recover money by placing a lien on the properties and either the owner pays for the demolition or the City collects when the properties are sold.
