Hey Disgusted Citizen,
I TOTALLY AGREE W/ YOU ABOUT THE EYESORE/CONVENTION CENTER PINK ELEPHANT FIASCO. When this "current" issue is over, it will be something else with that POOR excuse to spend taxpayers money losing proposition structure, because city residents keep putting Democrats in office and they like WASTEFUL SPENDING, I know you agree!
But, there is good news to tell you! You said, "The house behind us has about 10 people living in it and the outside looks like a trash dump most of the time."
If you live in the CITY:
Call the MANAGER at the City of Wilmington Code Enforcement Office and immediately report it and ask when they can come for an inspection on Monday morning. I think it should be the same day, if you call early in the morning. Call at 8:00.
Usually, concerned and Disgusted citizens call to lodge a complaint, but be sure to "give an EXACT address" and remain calm while disclosing the pertinent information.
Too often, people are soooo angry about stuff they let build-up that they call and SCREAM at the person who answers the phone... who in turn, thinks the caller is crrrraaaazzzzy!
The City is QUICK to respond in these Code and Zoning cases or ANY matter, really, BUT they have to KNOW about them.
It is up to tax paying citizens to report what is happening....no one has E.S.P. or can read your minds out there, right?
THEY can and DO enforce City Code that specifies that no more than 3 "unrelated individuals", (which is what this sounds like) can live in a sole dwelling in the CITY.
I have NO IDEA what can be done if you live in the COUNTY and have vermin who live behind you, but I doubt that they enforce codes because they are too busy ironing their shirts.
Are there any City workers that can verify that a Code definately APPLIES for this Good tax-paying citizen who is at his/her wits end with Baaaaad neighbors who are living illegally in one of their students daddy's houses?????????
