    You have got to be kidding, this Thur the 22nd. I guess he does not want many people there. So much for public input.

    Just found out about the meeting now. Too bad I missed it. I’ve tried to call the mayor at least 10 times, but he won’t pick up the phone. Would have been nice to better understand why our neighborhood homes are being turned into crack dens while Antioch PD refuses to do anything? The issues with squatters in Antioch are well documented, yet we continue to allow the banks to foreclose on properties without updating their records so that they’ll be responsible for what happens at their abandoned houses. How can they even do code enforcement when the county doesn’t know who the real owner of a house is? Worse yet, how do neighbors deal with 25 people living in an abandoned house next door when the previous owners say they don’t own the house and the bank that stole it from them won’t disclose who they are? This is a real issue, creating real crime in Antioch. All the neighborhood watch in the world didn’t stop them from breaking into another neighbor’s house. It won’t do us any good to keep an eye on suspicious characters when they’re allowed to take over the abandoned houses and use them for unsavory purpose. The mayor, the chief of police and the city council members should all be ashamed of themselves. To allow such blatant crime to occur under their noses and then try to claim that legally that can’t address the issue is despicable. I bet if their pensions were being threatened, they’d be quick to find a solution. It’s too bad that our deadbeat mayor only pays lip service to the idea of keeping Antioch safe, instead of implementing changes to punish the banks for not updating their records/and or a solution to the squatter crisis that so many of our neighborhoods are having to deal with.
