To the Editor:

I would like to see the town of New Milford put into effect an ordinance stating that, after a certain number of years, if a building is empty and deteriorating, it is the responsibility of the owner to tear down the building and clean up the land.

There are a couple of empty buildings on the south end of town that are falling apart and an eye sore to the town.

This should not be permitted.
