Harriman City Councilman J.D. Sampson is tired of cleaning up properties and rarely seeing the money for that cleanup quickly returned to the city.
He was so fed up last year he asked that action be taken to quickly collect on the lien at 316 Carter St., setting a timeline to take further action after 90 days.
The city tore down the burned-out building at a cost of $15,000 in 2011. It’s been more than his proposed 90 days, but Sampson is determined to get that money back.
