A Hartford man is concerned that low-income residents are being unfairly targeted by a new city ordinance.
Leroy Preyer told Hartford council members that the poor simply can't afford to remove run-down homes and businesses.
Under the city's nuisance ordinance, property owners can be fined and even jailed for not cleaning-up "public eyesores.”
Preyer says the law unfairly targets those who simply don't have the money.
News 4 is told Hartford’s Abatement Board will work with any property owner who has difficulty paying for the removal of a run down structure.
