Deputies crack down on abandoned properties/yards
Monday, August 29, 2011

SUMTER, SC (WIS) - Vacant buildings, unkept yards and abandoned properties are issues Sumter County deputies said they're cracking down on.

They said the county's biggest problem areas are in west and south Sumter. Our camera spotted several abandoned buildings and homes in pretty bad shape.

Deputies said residents who've let their properties go could be slapped with a fine up to a thousand dollars. "We will be out to enforce," said Chief Deputy Hampton Gardener. "Whatever we have to do to make that happen. Again, we want Sumter County to be a clean safe environment to live. Residents in this area want the same."

Chief Gardner said if you spot a dilapidated property, you can call the Sumter County Sheriff's Office. That number is 803-436-2700.
