A complaint was received April 4 about overgrown weeds and shrubs.

At the hearing, neighbors also said the house is covered with mold and rats and snakes are living there.

“The property is terrible,” said Sharon Grodzicki, a neighbor who spoke out before the CDD 2 board.

She and her husband have been living hear the abandoned home for years and are fearful of the dangerous decay taking place there.

Community Standards has chased down the two management companies responsible for upkeep of the property, Guardian Asset Management and 24 Asset Management. Both companies now claim the property is not in their inventory.

The supervisors ordered that the property be brought into compliance within seven days or fines will be imposed.
