MOUNT WASHINGTON--Mount Washington means business. At a recent city council meeting, Mayor Barry Armstrong said he was interested in implementing an abandoned property tax.
The issue has been a hot topic at meetings for some time now.
Lori Puchino, director for the Main Street Program, has asked the council several times to address the excess of abandoned properties,businesses and excess signage.
Though it is in the preliminary stages, Armstrong said action must be taken to “clean up the city.”
