I was driving around Lodi, and I do not understand why the city of Lodi would tolerate all the properties around town that are uninhabited and left to go to weeds and disarray.

These properties belong to someone. Whether they are private individuals or banks, they should be cleaned up or the city should do it and bill the owners. We as responsible property owners should not have to look at these unsightly and property value-diminishing lots.

Geez, someone, get up and do your job.

    I agree with you, however I avoid those parts of town since I have no reason to drive in that area. Most, though not all are lived in by RENTERS who could care less. Ever try to evict a renter, not that easy as it might take months to kick them out. Owners could care less as long as the rent, or at least some of it is paid on time, and forget about giving back the renters deposit as it will cost all of that and most likely more to fix the holes in the wall, and if a renter is kicked out, he/they will take everything that is not bolted down. If the prospective renter looks like and smells like a tweaker, most likely is. Best thing to do, raise the rent.
