The fire department boarding up the home, they’ve blocked off traffic from both ways. The question is how much does this cost the taxpayer. When you have a family that’s begging to make payments, and a bank that’s actively in negotiations with the family. It just doesn’t make any sense. This is costing tens of thousands of dollars on this single day alone to forcibly remove a family that wants to be in the community, that’s made their payments on time, that wants to continue to pay.” Support this story and all the stories from The Uptake.
