SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (WDTN) -
"And that's what happens. It turns into your drug houses. There's a lot if traffic. There's a lot of homeless people. Anything can happen in these abandoned homes," said Mines.
Mines wants to see the house renovated or torn down, but isn't sure how to go about getting that done. 2 NEWS contacted the Springfield Code Enforcement manager, Stephen Thompson, who said they are are aware of about 500 homes that need to be torn down. It would cost the city $2.5 million to tear them all down and with a $400,000 budget, they simply don't have enough money to handle them all.
The city will demolish about 100 properties this year. 25 have already come down this year.
You can file an anonymous complaint about a vacant property at the city's code enforcement hotline at 937- 324-7385.
