Eight 911 calls in a year on a 4-unit apartment complex isn't a particularly high number? I'd say the owner isn't screening his tenants as well as he claims to be.
I'm glad the city stepped up (finally) to address these blatant code violations. I'd like to see them do the same with the former Downtowner. Irresponsible landowners who create neighborhood blight should be held accountable.
If you have precious metal collectibles, please do your homework. Before selling to these out-of-town sharks, call local pawn shops and coin dealers and ask what they pay for an ounce of silver or a gram of gold. Ask if their scales are certified by the USDA. Ask if they have an expert on staff who can evaluate old and rare coins. If you do go to the out-of-towners, ask the very same questions. Don't be fooled by the glitzy ads disguised as news stories. Metal prices are currently through the roof, but you'll generally make far more money by selling your collectibles locally.
