The city of Auburn continues to crack down on what it deems “nuisance” properties.
The Citizen reports a residence at 1 Easterly Place has been boarded up and referred to the city’s nuisance abatement board, which handles complaints about problem properties. The board, which has been inactive for several years, consists of the city manager and police and fire chiefs.
Police Sgt. Tim Spingler says police, code enforcement and other city officials went to the site Monday and shut off the utilities. The building was condemned. It appears to have been unoccupied. The city has reached out to the property owner.
The increased enforcement began after police were called to 8 Delevan St. over a hundred times. The city eventually got a court order to shut down the property. City officials say the condemnation at 1 Easterly Place was not a criminal matter, just a code violation.
