AKRON, Ohio - In Akron's State of the City address, Mayor Don Plusquellic announced a new initiative to address neighborhood nuisance problems.
The new Akron Neighborhood Assistance Department will pair one Akron police officer and one nuisance inspector to a specific geographic district. Together, they will attach problems like high weeds, junk cars, housing violations and abandoned homes.
"Crime often goes hand and hand with nuisances, especially in those abandoned houses," said Plusquellic. "With the teams of police and the teams of inspectors working together, we can bring a laser-like focus to weeding out the problems that plague our neighborhoods, making them safer and more livable."
