The front porch of a house at 3006 Spring Ave. S.W. in Decatur.
Hiding in plain sight
Location: 3006 Spring Ave. S.W.
Description: Boxes, household items and toys are on the front porch, in the yard and in the driveway.
Property owner: Morgan county revenue records list Southern Equity Group LLC.
The company said the renter is being evicted and that might be why the home is in this condition.
“There’s nothing we can do until this is settled and the person has moved out,” said an employee at Southern Equity.
Ordinance: It is unlawful for any property owner to keep discarded household items and junk on the premises unless it is stored in an approved, enclosed, covered structure so it is not viewable from any public right of way.
Responsible officials: The home is in City Councilman Gary Hammon’s District 3.
David Lee, code enforcement officer for Community Development, recently issued a notice for overgrown weeds and inoperable vehicle to the property owners.
