A Youngstown organization is holding a meeting to hold a man it calls a problem landlord responsible for back taxes and failure to maintain property codes, according to a news release.
In 2017, WKBN reported that the property owner, Mark King, was behind about $500,000 on his tax bill.
The ACTION Housing Task Force says they expect King to sign a community agreement for failing to maintain property code standards, tenant maintenance requests and tax delinquency.
The meeting will be at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Martin Luther Lutheran Church, located at 420 Clearmont Dr. in Youngstown.
ACTION, a group of faith leaders in Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley, is partnering with the Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation for this meeting. It’s part of a campaign to hold landlords accountable for the condition of their properties.
The group says it will also select another property owner to “hold accountable” during its meeting on Tuesday.
