ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Dougherty County commissioners are cracking down on people who allow their property to become a nuisance to others.

The commission approved a resolution Monday that will allow them to partner with Albany Code Enforcement to take legal action against the owners of properties that are now unfit for human habitation.

This is one of three houses included in that resolution. It's at 109 South Rosewood and has been left in disrepair since the flood of 1994.

"Well, my understanding is that property has been sitting there literally abandoned for about 15 years and, of course, the vegetation had almost covered, in fact, had covered parts of it and the report from the neighbors was that the property had begun to see rodents coming in from the property,"said County Commissioner John Hayes.

A permit has been issued for work to be done at that house. The property owner has six months to make improvements. If nothing is done, the county will take further action.
