New ordinance in West Palm Beach targets foreclosed homes

February 22, 2012 12:45PM

A new ordinance in West Palm Beach aims to address the number of foreclosed homes in the city, WPTV reported. The plan, which was approved unanimously by the city commission Tuesday, requires banks to use property managers to maintain foreclosed homes and will ultimately create a database of foreclosed homes in the city. “Foreclosures are actually up this year, now that laws are more refined at the federal level,” said Doug Wise, director of development services for the city.
