Condemned Homes

Two houses in Rockford are condemned and now their owners are ordered to either clean up or get out.

Police and city inspectors say they found missing windows, dog feces, and abandoned cars at the two residences on South 3rd Street.

City officials say owners of the property will have 60 days to bring the homes to minimum standards. If they don't they'll be taken to court and face fines.

This effort is an attempt to clean up Rockford neighborhoods.

    I know the feeling I have 2 abandoned houses just around the corner from my house. One has broken windows and the yard is a mess. I told a community police officer about it and they are going to tear it down in 30 days if no one cleans it up and the other had stuff in the backyard for weeks until me and one of my neighbors took the garbage the tenants left out to the curb because of mice.
