Lee Commissioners Approve
Vacant Property Ordinance
Lee County commissioners Tuesday unanimously approved measures that will require banks to register and care for abandoned or vacant homes.
As of Jan. 1, banks will be required to register abandoned homes that are either in foreclosure or bank owned.
Lehigh Acres residents assembled in commission chambers, sounding off in support of the ordinance, they say, will hold banks accountable for their properties.
But Commissioner Frank Mann stopped the fun before it started in the cartoons the Lehigh Acres residents made in support of the ordinance.
