Hiding in plain sight

Location: 1711 Devonshire Drive S.E.

Description: A neighbor says residents keep “a broken-down truck that hasn’t moved in years” with an expired North Dakota tag. The neighbor says that in the bed of the truck is a broken-down snowmobile.

Property owner: According to property appraisal from the Morgan County Revenue Department, the homeowners are Larry and Mary Traweek. There is no telephone listing and they were unavailable for comment.

Ordinance: It is unlawful to store or keep on the premises of any residential or commercial property any inoperable vehicle.

Responsible officials: Councilman Gary Hammon said he doesn’t know of any complaints on the residence, but would look into it. He said if the neighbor doesn’t want to go to Community Development, he would think that covenants would protect the neighborhood. He said neighbors should take grievances to the Point Mallard Homeowners’ Association. Inspector David Lee said he wasn’t aware of the complaint but would check it out.

Let us know: if you’re tired of seeing a dilapidated building, litter, a drainage problem or an eyesore in your neighborhood. Contact The Daily newsroom at 340-2433 or news@decaturdaily.com.
