Overgrown vacant lots can be an eyesore in just about any community.
But the City of Sandusky, in Ohio, has come up with a plan that improves the neighborhood and puts money back in the city.
It has just begun the Mow to Own program.
The Landbank Coordinator says the City of Sandusky has acquired more than 100 delinquent lots that are no longer generating revenue through property tax and costing the city to maintain them.
On average, it probably costs the city, $250 each time they mow a lot.
