KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- FOX 4's working for you with a followup on a stinky situation in an old northeast neighborhood near 5th and Prospect in Kansas City, Mo.
It involves a sewage leak that's leaking into a number of people's yards. It smells and is reason for concern for residents. The problem has been ongoing for several months.
Two weeks ago, FOX 4's Tess Koppelman spoke with the property owner who lives in Michigan. He said he was unaware of the problem and would send a plumber. On Friday, a city code inspector said the property owner told the city the property is in foreclosure and that he's not responsible for the problem -- that the bank is.
One family who has lived in the area for over 40 years is frustrated and disheartened that they will have to continue dealing with the problem.
"You can't even open the door because it's too much stink," said Vito Bianco. "I wish somebody would help. Me sick."
The city has posted a sign on the property saying it's unfit to live in. One tenant said the city gave them only one day's notice to move and that now he's homeless.
