You may have a Tulsa home near where you live that has overgrown weeds or other problems. One man says he has a home next door that is more than an eyesore, it's a health hazard.

The residents in the home moved out about a month ago. The grass is high, and vines are growing into the roof. But neighbor Herb Raber says the biggest problem is a half filled pool in the backyard. "It's got water in it that is awful looking stuff, so the mosquitoes are real bad in our neighborhood."

Because of the possible health hazards caused by the pool, the city considers the home a high priority and will track down the owner and address the problems.

If you have a code enforcement problem you would like addressed, contact the Mayor's Action Center at 596-2100.
