Webster Parish Police Jury is facing how to deal with abandoned properties where no owner can be located.
Sarah White went before WPPJ on Tuesday to present one example.
"I'm having a problem with property I live next door to," she said. "I'm trying to sell my house ... when people come out one of the first things they ask is who owns that big mess over there, and I explain."
Sarah White's neighbor died June, 2011. The problem was the neighbor had no local relatives and no one knew means of contacting the children.
