Resident says city needs to finish cleanup job
By JAMIE PATTERSON
A Yazoo City woman said she is disgusted with a vacant lot next to her home that is covered with trash and rats from a recent demolishment.
Mary Houston, who lives on Madison Street, said the city has fallen down on its job of cleaning up the remains from a house that was demolished a few weeks ago.
“The city is not doing their job,” Houston said, looking over the vacant lot. “People need to be aware of this.”
The house that was formerly located on the lot had been an eyesore for several years. Extensions and other accommodations were made to the property owners in an effort to clean up the property. But city leaders put their foot down a few months ago and ordered for the home to be demolished.
