TOLEDO, Ohio (WTOL) - Grass and weeds in an empty lot on the 1200 block of Evesham in central Toledo is growing and growing. Neighbors have called the city for help, but nothing has been done in years. Tired of feeling helpless, they're now turning to Problem Solver Mika Highsmith.

Hazel Lemons has been complaining about the house next door to her for years.

"We had vagrants in the house they would loiter and smoke pot all that kind if stuff."

The house has been gone now for years, but she can't get too excited, because of what it looks like now.

With grass, weeds and even six feet tall trees, Lemons says it's worse than before and looks like a jungle. She says the worst part is they've been complaining about the lot for almost two years.

"It's just promises and promise, so we decided to call you to see what can be done."

Problem Solver Mika Highsmith called the city and they issued several orders to the owner in Florida. They have yet to get a response, so they're going to give the owner a ticket and send crews out to clean it up by the end of the week.

If you're having a similar problem contact the city at 419 936 2020.
