Sadly, our neighbors were evicted this week. All of their belongings were removed from their home and set out for removal. Unfortunately, there was so much stuff, their front yard and parkway, as well as the neighbors on either side's lawn and parkway were covered with household items.
After two 21-foot trucks were filled, there was still a lot of stuff left behind which has sat there for five days. People have rifled through it and so it is spread all over the place. Meanwhile, the people who lived in the house took no responsibility for the remainder of their belongings. What is left is strewn everywhere since people have stopped to go through it, looking for treasures. The new owner is responsible, according to the law, for removing what is left behind in a specified amount of time and he hasn't done his part either.
Neither has the village. Protocol has not been followed and those responsible are not being held accountable. Numerous phone calls were made and no responses came forth.
The police just told us Friday that it will be Monday or Tuesday before removal.
In the meantime, we get to look at it, watch people gawk at it, go through this terrible mess on our street!
The village failed us on this one, big time. It should have stepped up and stepped in on our behalf days ago.
