Online Wall of Shame: Pa. City Shames Owners of Blighted Property on Web
READING, Pa. (CBS/AP) Is your property on an online wall of shame?
Property owners neglecting their homes in one eastern Pennsylvania city are getting an online shaming.
On Monday, Reading Mayor Tom McMahon announced a new online "Wall of Shame" featuring blighted properties.
McMahon says the property owners' names will be posted along with pictures and addresses. He says he's serving notice to property owners who fail to take action on eyesore properties.
Ten properties are already facing designation as blighted, which could lead to them being torn down. Fifty other properties are listed on the site, and McMahon says they're being targeted for blighted status by the city.
The map and list of properties is online at Batchgeo.com.
