A bungalow-style house at 433 E. Pleasant St. doesn’t quite qualify as “pleasant,” according to neighbors who live near the vacant two-story structure.

Property owners on East Pleasant and East South streets signed a petition that was presented to Corry City Council Monday, asking the board to take action on the blighted property.

“The place is unsafe,” said Clancy Walsh, of 546 E. South St., who delivered the petition to Council.

“The yard hasn’t been mowed all year and there’s rotting lumber in the yard,” Walsh said. “There’s a truck hanging out over the sidewalk. The most recent inspection sticker is June 2004.”

Walsh said the house has been vacant for about three years.

“It’s time something was done about that property,” Walsh said.

The last known owners of the property were Edward Davis and his wife, who no longer live in Corry, said City Administrator Gerry Dahl, who also serves as the city’s code enforcement officer.
