This is crazy. These houses look to be in fine shape. Why would they be tearing down their tax base when they are hurting foir money?

12:30 - from what Bob posted it is vacant since 2006 and hasn't paid taxes since then either.

Want to buy it and fix it? If you got the money and move fast call the council member and you can stop it.

Yeah right! I should pay thousands of dollars to the city just for the privlege of fixing up one of their houses and if I'm 2 days past the deadline they give me they come out and tear the place down or try to shake me down to sell it for peanutsw. No thanks Chuck. They've got no right saying anything about this house and because someone doesn't step up and offer to do wht they want still doesn't give them the right to tear it down. It isn't bothering anyone and IS NOT a blight.

What I'm wondering is whether the city is just using jerk behavior on some of these properties as a smoke screan, in order to throw the landlords off. On these the city can make maganimous gestures (trying to appear as if they really cared). Into the mix the city condemns houses with the potential of opening up choice development property (take a look at 384 Smith). Just evaluating who gains from these and the $ benifits, which could add to the rico cases.
