A Washington couple claims in a federal lawsuit filed Thursday that the city and its code enforcement officer violated their constitutional property rights by preventing them from fixing a property damaged by a former tenant.
Gary and Kathy Yoders claim in the lawsuit that code enforcement officer Robert McIntyre condemned the rental house on Addison Street on June 29, after the tenant kicked a hole in the basement wall and broke a water line while attempting to elude police. He cited them for failing to repair the house while refusing to let them inside, the lawsuit says.
