This letter is with regard to the sad state of repair the old Kmart building is in.
I live in Fairfield and have watched since Kmart closed its doors. Since that day, I have watched the vacant building become a magnet for homeless, trash, graffiti and all types of big rigs. The city put up fences to try to manage the situation, but the fences eventually disappeared. Now people are dumping old mattresses and trash on the property, with no regard for city ordinances.
I called on the city leaders to put the fences back up and have the code enforcement department patrol it more often. Also if the landowners are not willing to maintain their property, then I say take over the property with eminent domain.
Any help the city or any of their departments can give is much appreciated.
Thank you and God bless America.
