  1. Three down and how many more, just like them, are tucked up in some slum rental housing harboring weapons and drugs? How many more will take their place today, next week?

    The negligent, absentee owner of the property needs to be made to feel the pain. Do they make regular visits to their properties? Do they have a local property manager? Are they registered with a tenant list, as mandated by ordinance? If they aren’t registered, fine ’em up to the maximum $1000.00 and make it stick so the Judges can uphold it. Let these creeps know that they stand to lose their properties by enabling criminals. They would seem to be accessories to the crime through their ignorance of what is going on their properties.

    Scare them straight. The borough has the law and the power on their side to do this.

    The neighbors can do it too by filing a public nuisance lawsuit against Schuylkill Investments, LLC MontCo Property Records list the apartment address as 109 N. York St. and the mailing address for the owners: 502 Red Coat Ln, Phoenixville
