So Who Owns This Dump?

Brad Edwards of Fox 2 News did an expose about a blighted property at 6701 Plainview in the Warrendale neighborhood. This vacant house is filled with trash, drugs, crime and dead animals. Of course, perhaps the most infuriating part of it all is that this particular house is owned by the City of Detroit.

Yes, the people who are supposed to enforce violations of the City's Property Maintenance Code are ignoring one of the most blighted homes in our neighborhood - which they themselves own.

The complete report is available below.

Update @ 10:25 p.m.
I got an email from Brad Edwards of Fox 2 News. Reportedly, this house will be demolished soon. I will continue to follow this story.
