Manchester trying to pass bill on blighted homes


MANCHESTER- Manchester city officials are looking to pass a bill to get help in the crack-down of blighted properties. There is no reason why the city or the state can't regulate how people maintain their property.

"There are occasional places that you see with multiple cars or other things around that don't look so good. I feel there is a very fine line between how maintaining individual property rights and doing something for the community as a whole," said John Sargent, a North End resident.

"I think that it's important that the legislature up in concord gives us the legislature to give us the opportunity to fix the problems locally," said Mayor Ted Gatsas.
"While I would favor some very soft action, I'm not so sure I'm in favor of something drastic, some major legislation," said Sargent.
