Mailbag: Vacant Homes (Part 1)

I missed a few questions that were left for me in the comments section of various blog posts. With that in mind, I wanted to catch up on them.

Jeff wrote in to ask:
I am in a simular situation as Hellen wrote in your post. I am currently trying to renovate my father's 2-family home to rent or sell. However, I am concerned with the vacant homes, some of which have been broken into and burned. Does the community make an effort to watch these homes? I understand that your group is a grass roots organization, but would like more information. When is your next meeting, and is it open to anyone?
The WCO does the best it can to watch the vacant homes in the neighborhood. However, between the large number of such homes and the fact that we're an all-volunteer grass roots organization, our efforts are admittedly limited.

The WCO has its general membership meetings on the first Monday of each month at 7 p.m. in the School Building of St. Thomas Aquinas Church. Everyone is invited to attend.
