City hopes to act quickly on Woodlawn property

The city of Norwalk is hoping to move quickly on a recent property destroyed by fire at 21 Woodlawn Ave.

Since the Oct. 11 fire, debris had been collecting on the curb near the residence and the home had the potential to be an eventual trouble spot.

By city ordinance, the sanitation department cannot pick up more than three cans or bags of garbage. It's the property owner's responsibility to get rid of the excess trash, officials say.

So the homeowner, Deb Cox, and her family moved some of the debris back inside last week. A story about their plight, and what city officials are saying about the situation, was published on the front page of Monday's Reflector.
