Trailer Causes Kafuffle In Neighborhood

"It's got to go, it has to go," says Janet Fitzpatrick about the trailer that's been sitting in her  neighbor's backyard for two weeks.

"I do not like it there," Fitzpatrick adds, strongly making the point that the trailer's, well, an eyesore.

And then there's the grass.

"I'm 4 ft. 11 in., and it's as tall as I am," Fitzpatrick complains. "It creates rodents."

You name it, and Fitzpatrick says it's been back there. "Bats wild animals... "

What she's really upset about is that the situation next door is "bad for our property. We work very hard to get our property clean and our grass cut -- and we're trying to sell our property," she says.

"We have not been able to get anything done until we called you," Fitzpatrick says about Call 11 for Action problem solver Mika Highsmith's involvement.

Mika got the city involved, and the trailer is now tagged and on its way out. Of course, News 11 wanted to make sure the owner was on the same page.

When asked, the owner said, "I'm going to get it out today -- since you guys are here."

"I'm very happy you got involved," Fitzpatricks says about Mika's involvement.

Turns out the owner kept her word. The trailer is no longer an issue. And, the owners cut their grass as well.

Another victory for problem solver Mika Highsmith.
