A recent special section made Dyer look like a great place to live. I quickly turned the pages to see if my neighborhood businesses were included.

What they didn't show you was Dyer Vault Co.'s backyard with the mountain of broken concrete and their attempt to cover gang painting on some of their concrete tiles.

The overgrown railroad property north of Matteson Street. Dead trees and unmowed grass on the Canadian National property.

The potty chairs and debris on the Groen Management property is a nice touch.

The junk piled up in front of Haddady Corp.

Any of these properties would have been a great front page picture to the section on Dyer.

What does a resident have to do to get it cleaned up?
