Uli. There is a building at 5217 Ohio which had been abandoned for some weeks. Children have already torn down the first floor back stairway leaving part of the structure hanging from the second floor and have wrecked the garage. They have broken all the windows and made a mess of the interior. Mrs. L. The building department sent an inspector who repogted the house 19 per cent deteriorated and the garage 40 per cent deteriorated. The department has requested a title search and will send notices to the owner to repair the structures or raze them. If no action is taken by the owners it will be referred to the corporation counsel's office and suit will be brought against the owner or owners. photo below and letter on editorial We repaired our porch replacing old lumber with new. We have been chopping up the big 6 to J8 feet and putting out small bundles at a time for the sanitation crews to take. But it's such back- breaking work and there's so much of it. We were told we could get the ward yard to send a bulk pickup truck to dispose of the rest of it. Mrs. B. Bulk pickup truck services do not extend to hauling away large pieces of branches or all of which are com- bustible. These would have to be hauled to the far southeast side to be disposed depriving a ward of almost a full day's use of the truck. Supt. Raymond Kennedy advises that your husband hire a trailer then come to the ward yard 4830 where he will be given written premission and the exact address near and where he can dispose of the lumber in the city's dumping ground. This is far less expensive then hiring a scavenger service. After a fire in a building in the 5400 block of the grounds and alley were a mess with all sorts of refuse strewn around. Can you get this cleaned Mrs. L.T. Everything you complained about has been taken care of and the area is now spic and span through the diligence of Sept. Bob Constantine. and his 37th ward yard plus the cooperation of the building owner.
