City cleans up 1 mess and creates another, woman complains

TOLEDO (WTOL) - Sue Jordan's plan was to improve her neighborhood by getting rid of a home in disrepair. But in the process, she's added another one to the block: her dad's home in the 1400 block of North Erie.

And that's because the City of Toledo made some huge blunders, she says.

Jordan says city crews damaged her dad's fence and porch during the demolition of the eyesore, so she contacted Call 11 for Action problem solver Mika Highsmith to make things right.

"I wanted them to demolish it, get rid of it because druggies were coming in here," but she sure didn't expect they'd leave a mess, Jordan says.

Mika spoke with a representative from the city who says the law department was aware of the situation and will look into it. The fence and porch will be fixed.
