One more Letter: Eyesore needs to be addressed


I reside on Palmer Road near Ohio 158. There is an abandoned home (empty for over a year) which is located just south of the Flying J Travel Center on the same side of the road. This vacant house appears ready to collapse. The doors are open and I’m sure various “critters” have taken up residence.

Why does Licking County, Harrison Township and/or Kirkerville let things like this eyesore exist? Is it a lack of zoning laws, failure to take responsibility or just not caring what the area looks like? Why not let a local fire department burn it as a training session or make the land owner responsible for razing it and cleaning it up. Doesn’t anyone care?
