(Spokane, WA)  --  The Spokane City Council is considering an ordinance designed to prevent abandoned homes from collapsing into disrepair.  Officials say the ordinance would require banks or other responsible parties to register all abandoned homes within city limits and provide a local contact to monitor and respond to issues with the property.  The owners of the properties would be required to pay a 200-dollar fee annually, and failure to register would draw a civil fine of 500 dollars.  A Spokane City Council member told the "Spokesman-Review" the ordinance would hold banks and mortgage lenders accountable for properties they've foreclosed on, keeping them in good condition, and protecting property values.
