How can a city foreclose on a house? If someone did something like that to me - I might just decide that I had nothing to lose.

I'm hoping that there is more to this story, though I cannot imagine how they can justify the fine and foreclosing.

Somebody wants that property. He is lucky to get legal help without it costing him another chuck of change. I sure hope he wins.

And they wonder why some people just loose it and start shooting up city hall. Hope he wins.

I would demand to see the county code that states fines can be imposed on a property for having long grass.

I had a kid mowing a house I own in another state and he decided he didn't want to mow it anymore and didn't let me know. I got a letter from the city that if it wasn't mowed by a certain date they were going to mow it and charge me for it. Well the date was the next day and I didn't have time to find someone new. I just let them mow it and figured it would probably cost me $100. I got a bill from them and they charged me $10. The kid was charging me $20! I called them and asked them if they wanted to mow it every week!!!

Tell them that he thought he saw a Perdido Key mouse in the grass.

Occasionally there are some bad neighbors who let their place go to hell. From the article, it doesn't sound like this is the case.
