BROKEN ARROW, Okla. - The city of Broken Arrow is taking steps to get rid of unsafe properties.
The city has identified three vacant homes that they say are a danger to the public.
One home burned in a fire, another is in disrepair with tree limbs on the roof and holes in the ceiling and the third is in a severe state of dilapidation and disrepair.
Neighbors near some of the homes said they are concerned about the safety of these properties.
City officials said they try to work with the homeowners to get the properties up to code, but when that’s not successful, they got through the process of declaring it a public nuisance.
The city will go through steps to confirm ownership and get permission to demolish the properties.
The city will then demolish the homes and put a lien on the property for the cost of the demolition.
