    What’s the obvious solution, John? To take the building by force? Tear it down? Provide grants to fix it up? Do nothing at all, since it’s private property?

    I like it when commissions are formed to deal with problems council doesn’t want to deal with even when the solution is obvious to everyone else, especially, the taxpayer.
