Anyone that lives near the Tree Top addition knows that the house at 700 Kyle burned several months ago. Now it is an eyesore and people want to know what is being done about this problem. Rumors were started that it was a Meth House and that the laboratory burned up. This simply isn’t the case. An addition over the garage was constructed, and the wiring was faulty and the house caught on fire.
Code enforcement issued a citation concerning the house access and the owner constructed a chain link fence to limit the access. Then months passed with nothing being done about the property. Everyone thought that the insurance company was dragging its feet. Apparently there is no insurance company. Code control was prepared to issue another citation and the owner has simply vanished. So the next step is a DSS hearing. A Dangerous and Substandard Structure hearing is scheduled for 6 February and this property will be on the agenda. This is the first step in the removal of the structure from the property. It will take time but the gears are slowly moving in the proper direction allowing the property owner the due diligence that is required.
