HOBART | The Board of Public Works has thanked property owner Robert Brayfield for his part in cleaning up an unkempt yard at 3950 Swift St.

The board on Wednesday agreed to remove the property from an order to comply list following a presentation by Building Official Michael Hannigan.

Hannigan said Brayfield and his son evicted the former tenant and cleaned up the property.

The boyfriend of the former tenant was a contractor and had littered the property with construction items, some of which he had attempted to clean up by burning, Hannigan said.

The property has now been listed for sale.

In related news, the board is expected to hear a cleanup schedule report at the May 15 meeting from Robert Berndt.

The board in late April heard a progress report from Hannigan.

He showed photos taken of Berndt's house and farm, which are across the street from each other, in the 6800 block of Grand Boulevard.

The city has been attempting since late last year to get Berndt and his family to clean both properties.
