NAPC  rescheduled their normal mtg. to assist.  The crews aggressively dealt with derbies that is caught in a catch 22.  The overgrown areas and the blight left by the slum lords as they prey on the  needy with fast turnovers on rentals, then no one is responsible.  Old tenants gone new ones left with unwanted furniture and what to do with that.  All in all it was one of the best attended that I participated in.

    As a LW landlord (x2) and a resident, there is no reason that slum lords should be able to get away with dumping debris. Debris on the property gets tagged to the property owner so not sure why this problem perpetuates (unless slum lords are dumping on other property that they don’t own). If my tenants put out trash/debris in violation it gets tagged to their utility bill just like any other resident. If the utility bill is in the name of the land lord, most common with the slum lords, since they don’t want the city inspecting their property (which is triggered by change in utility bill) then they get tagged with the cost.
