JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

On any given day, the city of Jackson code enforcement division is out tagging dilapidated, abandoned houses and overgrown yards. In this Three on Your Side investigation, we discovered the city may want to inspect it's own property located in south Jackson.

The old Dillard's at Metro Center mall down in south Jackson is in a state of disrepair. We counted several smashed plate glass windows in the lower entrance. Glass is covering the ground and huge shards of glass are dangling out of windows.

The massive parking lot is dotted with standing water and the grounds are overgrown. According to Scott Overby, with the Overby Brokerage company, the city does not participate in shared maintenance services.

The city of Jackson is responsible for the upkeep of this property. Our calls to the city Wednesday were not returned.
