If you can remember way back when there was a time when the Tiger Marts were successful gas stations in prime locations throughout the City of Yakima. Today (like they have for many years) sit vacant as the owner refuses to clean them up and so they can once again become productive pieces of property.
The City has struggled with how to handle the properties, dealing with a number of code complaints and violations that are pretty standard for vacant property. I've received numerous calls for weed and graffiti abatement. The City has done their best up to this point to enforce the laws that we can while waiting for the owner to clean up the contaminants on the site and sell them or put them back into production. That will NEVER happen, and the question becomes...how long should you wait?
