JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Overgrown and out of patience; a Jackson resident said she is tired of looking at an eye-sore. So, she reached out to 3-On-Your-Side for help.

"There are rodents and all kinds of varmints in my back and I look out the window and I see rats crawling," said homeowner Cathy Boyle.

Boyle said her property backs up to an overgrown lot. She said after three years of trying to get it cleaned up, she had no other choice but turn to Three On Your Side,

"In addition to, it's just a pig sty and it makes our property values go down in a very nice part of town," added Boyle.

The problem property is the backyard of a home that sits off Northside Drive and Old Canton Road.

"I just want it cleaned up," said Boyle. "There's a shed back there that's about a foot from my property line that I believe is where rodents live. I want that to come down and I want him to keep the property clean."

Boyle told us she has been trying to get action from the city of Jackson for at least three years, but nothing has been done. On Wednesday the city told her they were going out to the property to take pictures.

Three On Your Side spoke to the city spokesperson, she told us they are looking into the matter.

We also tried to contact the homeowner, but our calls have not yet been returned.

If you have a property next to you that is overgrown or you consider a nuisance, you can call the city and report it to 311.
