From the Ask Joe file one of our viewers has a question about neighborhood blight.
Tom Gargus wrote in asking why Washoe County doesn't enforce its "Nuisance Code" in areas of Sun Valley where numerous code violations exist ?
Tom even sent in some photos he took of what he considers neighborhood blight. The photos show tires stacked up in yards, rolls of carpet and just general junk and debris.
He says the worst areas are 4th , 5th and 7th Avenues in Sun Valley.
I checked with Washoe County and am waiting to hear back. So I'll be following up on this next week.
In the meantime I found out the Washoe County Sheriff's Office is looking for volunteers to help with a community graffiti clean up in Sun Valley.
It will be happening on Saturday October 12th from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Volunteers will meet at the Sun Valley Community Center at 115 West Sixth Avenue.
If you're interested in helping out call 785-4239.
