Ask a Dispatcher
Q. Why is the owner of the junk yard "house" in the **** block of Glacier Hwy allowed to let his house look like that?? Every time I walk by with my dog, I have to go off the side walk to skirt the vehicles/fridges/tires/etc, that are slowly creeping out into the road. It's a total eyesore, an embarrassment to the area, as well as a hazard!
Dear Juneau Resident,
You are not the first person to write to us about that house. Other city agencies are also aware of and addressing the issue. The wheels turn slowly when it comes to making someone clean up a property. The city does take action in these situations but progress can be slow and hard to see. There is a lot of 'process' involved because people have many rights when it comes to use of private property.
