Oklahoma Decides: Runoff election results

Nichols Hills residents complain about eyesores


NICHOLS HILLS, Okla. — Nichols Hills City Council is cracking down on homes neighbors have complained about. 

City Manager David Poole said three properties are currently under the city’s scrutiny after residents complained about the lack of upkeep.

“There are some where their roofs are bad, they’re unsecure, safety issues,” he said. “The degrading of property values around them.”

City officials said if homes meet certain criteria the city can declare a building dilapidated and have it removed at the owners cost.

The properties in question are in the 1600 block of Wilshire, the 2000 block of Huntington and the 6600 block of Avondale; two of the homes are vacant.

The city council will meet to decide what their options are concerning these properties.
