Detroit To Seize Drug Houses, Clean Up Vacant Lots

Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (AP) - Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan says he's collaborating with the city's police chief to seize drug houses as part of an effort to improve neighborhoods.

Duggan announced the program while giving a six-month report card on his administration during a community meeting Monday. He also pledged that roughly 100,000 vacant lots will be mowed and cleaned up.

The drug house program is to start this month. Under the initiative, the mayor's office will send a certified letter to homeowners that notifies them that their home was raided, and warns that the city will seize and sell the home if it is raided again.

Duggan also says progress is being made to get street lights working, clean up parks and improve bus service.
