South Toledo’s porch had become a community dump

TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) — A vacant home on Prouty Ave in South Toledo had become a dumping ground for people who don’t even live on the block according to neighbors.

According to a neighbor, the empty visual pollution even caused neighbors to move away.

“She lived right there, she moved because she was calling there all the time. We used to but we gave up. She would call the city on this place but they would never do anything,” Sue Ramm said.

Another neighbor who preferred to remain anonymous said it was painful having to watch the house every day.

“You don’t want people coming because, like you said, there’s a toilet on the porch. There’s furniture. The house is falling apart, the trough is nearly falling on my kids when we play outside, so we don’t, “I don’t even want to do that anymore. And we contacted the city to try to help, even take care of anything, but we got no response.”

The City of Toledo claims this property is complicated, it is owned by a Florida-based LLC. They left reviews, posted orders, and even sent an affidavit, but received no response. The property is on the City’s mowing list to maintain overgrowth.

As for the plague, since the city hasn’t heard from the owner, they have to think about the next course of action.
