Code enforcement: one of City Hall's most controversial, and misunderstood, jobs
This rundown home in the 200 block of Matadero Avenue is being investigated by Palo Alto code enforcement for overgrown vegetation and encroachment onto the sidewalk. The property owner, who lives out of the country, is facing a repeat citation for neglecting to take care of the property and could face an administrative hearing with the city for inaction.
