TOLEDO (WTOL) - She does what she can to keep her property in the 900 block of Lindsay in Central Toledo up but says the home next door is bringing it down.

Maime Brown says she has asked the contractor to clean up the mess next door to no avail, which is why she contacted Call 11 for Action problem solver Mika Highsmith.

Bown has lived at the home for more than 30 years and has watched the neighborhood take a turn for the worse.

Roofing materials, trash and a dumpster that's full to the brim are bringing her down. She's also finding some sort of little black bug around the house.

Mika spoke with the head of code enforcement, who sent an inspector out. The inspector issued orders and gave the owner 72 hours to remove all junk and debris. If it's not done in that amount of time, the owner will be fined.

If you're facing a similar situation, call the city at 419-936-2020.
