READING, Pa. - Property owners neglecting their homes in one eastern Pennsylvania city are getting an online shaming.

Reading (RED-ing') Mayor Tom McMahon on Monday announced a new online "Wall of Shame" featuring blighted properties.

McMahon says the property owners' names will be posted along with pictures and addresses. He says he's serving notice to property owners who fail to take action on eyesore properties.

Ten properties are already facing designation as blighted, which could lead to them being torn down. Fifty other properties are listed on the site, and McMahon says they're being targeted for blighted status by the city.

The city of Saint Paul would never publicly expose owners of blighted property like this. They already have a policy that works for them.

IF, you have an alleged blighted property in Saint Paul the city will cheat you out of your house and ruin you financially if they can.
